i think caroline's favorite part of the trip was riding all the big roller coasters with phil. she is a brave one. if you asked her what her least favorite part was, she would say hadley waking her up in the morning. that is the negative to hotel rooms for sure. i would say hadley's favorite part was riding the bus everywhere. it was a ride in itself not being in her car seat. we walked so much, ate a lot of food (mostly of the unhealthy variety, but hey it's disney!), and had a lot of laughs.
i have so, so many pictures to share of our family adventure. it was hard to number it down!
day 1- our first ride on the bus to the universal studios. can't you just see the excitement in hadley's eyes! ok, not so much. but you can see it in caroline's eyes for sure.
lb getting her face painted. always a hit no matter where you are
lb and i posing w/ the lego german shepherd (made me miss bodi!)
just walked in to the magic kingom. that castle just makes you smile.
the sun was shining right in our eyes, hence hads looking away
it's a small world
that song can stay in your head forever.

was sunny and in the 70's every day for us

hadley on a bridge seeing the water below
a lot of this happened at disney- bus waiting
on a ride at epcot. this was the only day that hadley
had to go back to the room mid-day for a nap. she was exhausted.
epcot at night. the christmas lights here were amazing
hadley walking on concrete tiles w/ lights built in
once again, we attempted to let hadley meet a character.
once again, it ended in tears.
this is her kind of characters. they didn't try to hug her
once and remained at a safe distance
phil and caroline on a car ride
even at disney, caroline brings her style
lunch with tiger at the crystal palace. food wasn't good but
getting to see all the characters was fun for caroline
there you have it. a quick glimpse into our wonderfully fun family adventure to disney. can't wait for next year!
and thanks, mom, for making all those amazing matching shirts for the girls (and me!). you're terrific!
