We're back :)

After two amazing weeks we are back home! We spent one week in Disney World and another in Indiana visiting Mary(Brad's sister) and her family. We had soooo much fun, and it was awesome having Brad with us every day all day. I have so many pictures and so much to say so I decided I'm going to blog about one day each day. Each day in Disney consisted of waking up bright and early to catch an eight o'clock shuttle to the park. The parks didn't open until 9 am, but getting in line early was key to getting to the high demand rides right away and getting fast passes so you could return at a later time and not wait in line. We stayed at every park until closing, which was between 8 pm and 10 pm. Every day was packed and it took all day to do and see everything, which we did! I made schedules for each day by using different Disney guides at Barnes and Noble which made things run very smoothly and efficiently and allowed us to get through everything at each park in one day. Jack did so well throughout the whole trip. He loved staring at everything....especially all the bright lights many shows had. He also learned some new tricks while we were away which include....half way blowing kisses, associating "mama" and "dada" with us, and army crawling which turned into real crawling yesterday! Overall, the trip was more than I ever so so magical. I can't wait to bring my littles ones back one day!

The first day in Disney we decided to go to Animal Kingdom. A few highlights were Expedition Everest, an African Safari ride through the savannah with real beautiful animals, and a few shows which were all must sees: Its Tough to Be a Bug, Finding Nemo, Flights of Wonder(a bird show), and the Lion King. The Lion King show reminded me alot of a Cirque de Soleil was AMAZING with live music, elaborate costumes, and acrobats. The bird show was pretty cool too. It was really neat how trained these birds were especially since they aren't kept in cages ever. They said they don't have to cage them because they are so well trained and like being there so they stick around rather than fly away.
All ready to go! I definitely suggest bringing your own stroller to Disney World. The ones you rent cost $15 a day and they are hard plastic seats. Having our stroller was awesome b/c we were able to recline the seat for Jack to take naps during the day.
