with a good night’s rest under our belts and after sort of slow morning, we arrived back at magic kingdom for our fourth and final day of disney world mania. the kids all decided on magic kingdom, so we could go on some of our favorites again (i’m looking at you aladdin’s magic carpets) and […]
disney world. day three.epcot.
whew! day three. we were pretty much dragging at this point. we got out the door around 8 or 9, rode two buses, and rolled into the park with what seemed like the entire state of florida. derek waited in the bag search line with all of our stuff, while the kids and i walked […]
disney world. day two.hollywood studios.
we got off to a decidedly slower start for day two of our disney adventures. we hopped one bus, to take us to another bus, to drop us off at hollywood studios. we stopped out front for our obligatory photo shoot, and then we were off… our first stop was “voyage of the little mermaid”. […]
disney world. day one.magic kingdom
so. when we were planning our trip to florida, we learned of a special that was running for florida residents (which we technically are) to get a pretty good deal on a four day pass to disney. we hadn’t really considered doing disney, but with the deal, we figured if we were ever going to […]

florida. part 3. downtown disney.
on our second day in orlando, we decided to forego the mayhem and high cost of a disney park and instead opted for downtown disney. we hit up the lego store: and then in one of the disney stores, anna found her old friends tigger and pooh. so, naturally, derek’s dad bought them for her. […]
florida. part 2. magic kingdom.
ok. so, we woke up early and headed out from the resort that derek’s parents had provided and made our way to the magic kingdom. with cautious anticipation. long line to get into parking lot. tram line was a crazy free-for-all and i’m apparantly not cut throat enough to load my family. so after waiting […]
it goes like this… isaac has never had a big cool birthday party. but, this year, having had to share his life with a baby sister, we thought maybe we’d spring for a bit bigger of a bash and have some friends. maybe at the bouncing place. it was going to be a lot of […]
