Disney World

Way back in February we decided to "Give a day to get a Disney Day" You can read about it here. So, since we had 2 tickets and listening to the crazy lady at Mom's timeshare got us a 3rd ticket, we got to go to Disney for free! So, we all packed up and headed out on July 6th to brave the summer crowds at Magic Kingdom.

On the boat headed over - some nice Japanese man gave me his seat. I guess big pregnant lady with a baby translates into any language :)

As soon as we got into the park we headed towards Pirates of the Carribean and on the way ran into Ariel and Prince Eric! Cadence was so excited until it was time to talk to them so we had to talk to them as a family. She wanted to know what kind of shoes Ariel was wearing and Ariel was nice enough to show us.

Waiting to see Philharmagic. THere's always fun to be had when you have a pair of 3D glasses and a camera :)

The parade was probably my (Ashleigh) favorite part of the day. Although Cadence clammed up and wouldn't talk to a single princess/character all day long, she LOVED seeing all of them in the parade and literally sat on her Daddy's shoulders and waved the entire length of the parade. This pregnant momma almost cried over seeing her little girl so excited. It's what Disney is all about!

This was going in to Minnie's house. Chris took Cadence to Minnie's house and to meet the other princesses while Caleb Shaun and I rode the train around the park - twice.

more digital camera fun while waiting to see the princesses.

She was completely terrified to talk to the princesses but you wouldn't know it by how she talks when she sees these pictures. She literally talks like it was the funnest thing she's ever done although by the look on her face in the pictures, you'd definitely think differently.

Driving the race car.

I love this picture because it's literally our view from behind the stroller all day. Caleb Shaun on the very edge of his seat taking everything in while Cadence kicked back and relaxed.

As we left the park we stopped by the candy store and let Cadence pick something out. She picked out a $2 pez! We couldn't believe it but certainly didn't complain! The hilarious part was that Caleb Shaun wanted it so bad. I love his face looking at her like "you're going to share that right?"

Looks like a HOT Florida day for sure! Wish I could have been there, taking it all in with you, maybe next time??

Ha! These pictures make me smile. I love that your family spent a fun day together making fun memories. Shae's hair is so curly... and tell her that her Aunt Lizzie said that her bangs looks so pretty and LONG (I know how important having "long" hair is to her these days!). Shaun's smile in the picture of you 2 together is precious. Just precious. He is SO GROWN UP. Oh my goodness he barely looks like a baby in these pictures. I guess that's a good thing seeing as how you'll have a new baby soon. It's so amusing to see the 2 of them interacting... and to think about last summer's trip to Disney and the double stroller filled with 2 boys. God certainly works in mysterious ways, huh? None of us could have imagined what a year would have in store in for your family!

So fun!!!! Those babies are so precious! I can't believe she wouldn't talk to any of the princesses. So like her :)
