Back to Disney

When I was 6 months pregnant with Lexi, we took a trip to Disney World with Haley and my parents. We are so excited to go back. We leave on Thursday morning...the shuttle picks us up at 6:20am. That should be a hoot! (Yes, I said hoot.) Regardless of the early morning, it is all we can think about! Lexi wakes up every morning and says "Disney World?" and Haley has learned to count backwards while waiting for the big day! If I ever go to sleep tonight, it will be only 1 more day left!

I decided to look through some old Iphoto picks from our last trip. Lexi will be only 1 month older than Haley was when we took this trip. Check out the pics...isn't it crazy how much they look alike????

Our Epcot experience was VERY rainy and kinda cold. We're hoping for a different experience this time. This will be our first stop. Highlights will be our reservations at the Mexican Pavilion for lunch, The Norwegian Pavilion (part of the reason I was convinced I had to move to Norway many years ago), and the 4th of July fireworks show.

These pics are from Animal Kingdom. Haley loved looking at the animals with Papa!

Although we will be able to visit with my mom's parents, my dad's mom passed away last fall. It will be surreal to go back and not be able to see her. This picture was taken on the last day I saw my Grandma. We were eating at Cracker Barrel...our favorite Back East Restaurant. I know it will be especially tough on my dad, so I'm glad we'll all be there together.

I will do my best to update the blog while we're there!

I am sooo excited for you...have a blast! And wow, Lexi does look a lot like Haley when she was that age. I will be praying far safety on the way there and sanity while on the trip. :)

pretty much all packed and ready to go. Emily has been playing with her minnie mouse and so excited every time we put it in front of her. She'll be thrilled to see the read deal!

Have so much fun. I bet it will be so HOT that you will wish it would rain. I was there for the 4th of July 12 years ago before Mark and Kristen's wedding. The fireworks were amazing. Have fun.
