SURPRISE!!!! We are going to Disney World...

My mom and I decided to take the kiddos to Disney World at the end of summer and also decided to not tell them until we were leaving!  I told the kids when we were putting them to bed that we had to work the entire next day on the house and that they were going to have to wake up super early and do lots of chores.  The next morning Toby and I crept into their room and woke them up and told them to go eat breakfast before we had to start working.  When they went into the dining room this is what they saw.

 Magic Bands all ready to go!
 My parents were here waiting and taking video.  They did not have much reaction at all...way too sleepy!  Jack said he thought the sign meant another day not today.  Pepa had to take them to the car to see their suitcases before they really started to process.  The first question they asked was if Hayden, Ava, and Sadie were going too!
 These are the sweet guys who sent us to WDW!
 Mom and Daughter selfies
 On the plane and ready to go!

 Always our monkey!
My kids had seen commercials about Seven Dwarf Mine Train and said that next time they went they wanted that to be the first ride.  Luckily we were able to work our fast pass to time this perfectly.  They loved it.  All part of the Disney magic!
 Getting soaked at Haunted Mansion!
 It is not a trip to WDW without a Mickey ice cream!
 Magic Carpet ride which we never ride but decide to today!
 We woke up at 5 to leave for the airport...these kids were more than hanging in there and we decided to stay for the electrical parade.  They loved it and then were ready to keep on going!
 Buzz Lightyear after dark!
 Last ride of the night...we didn't get back to the hotel till 11.  It was an amazing first day!

Summer Memories

I thought I would post some of my fave pics of the summer I have taken with my phone.  I haven't used my good camera nearly enough which I am both sad and happy about.  Sad...because I love having pretty pics of my family...happy...because that means I was more in the moment and not focused on getting a good picture.  Enjoy!
