The Happiest Place on Earth

This past week we had the opportunity to go to Disney World with some friends. It was a quick trip but we had a great time. The family we went with has two of Reese's favorite girls. Reese would have been totally happy if we had just stayed in the hotel the whole time with the girls. But she got a bonus of being able to go to Disney for the first time with them.

I am not quite sure she understood exactly where she was but she enjoyed it. There were a ton of people there. I really didn't think it would be as crowded as it was but it must have been school break for a bunch of school systems.

We were able to see a couple of shows. We luckily walked up right when this show was starting. This was the first show Reese saw and she loved seeing the characters...the princesses were in it too.

Reese enjoyed the little things. She danced to the music playing out in the open.

She was in her own world.

Next we went to ride Dumbo. Lance and I had to take turns riding the rides with Reese.

It was so cold. We were not really prepared for how cold it was. In my haste of getting everything together, I forgot a coat for myself. It was obvious that a lot of people didn't realize how cold it was going to be because there were people in shorts. It wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't so windy.

We finally had to just decide to leave because everyone was so cold. We have decided that it is a must to spend at least two days at the Magic Kingdom. We will remember that for our next trip. It is also NOT a good idea to travel there with a three month old. They just require too much work. However, I was very impressed with the baby care center in the park!!

On the next day we went to downtown Disney to eat lunch. After lunch we went in to a candy shop and Reese spied this Nemo cookie.

She was only interested in the icing.

I am pretty sure she enjoyed this carosel as much as anything in the Magic Kingdom.

We had a wonderful time and were so happy to be there and spend time with our friends!! I can't wait to take the kids back when they are older and will be much more excited about everything.
