Disney: Part 12

This is actually my second post today. I am really ready to get the Disney posts DONE. I'm almost there.
Anyway, we spent our last day at Hollywood Studios. There is a lot to do here for little ones and we didn't get to everything, but here is some of what we did:

The parade/block party
The kids dancing at the block party

We went to an extreme stunt/car show. It was pretty impressive.
This guy actually caught on fire during the show (on purpose)

This was part of an Indiana Jones stunt show. It had a lot of fighting scenes in it and afterwards, Rhett went around punching everything and making sound effects.

We became Idol fans this year, so we had to do the AI experience show.
This was the Beauty and the Beast show, which was really good!

Disney: Part 11

Our fourth night we went to Epcot. There is not a whole lot to do there with little kids, so we didn't spend a lot of time there. Our dinner was at Garden Grill and we ran into a few fun friends while we were there.....

Chip-n-Dale: not sure which is which

Disney: Part 10

While we were at Disney World, tinker bell made a little visit to our hotel room each night while the kids were sleeping. If they had been good that day, she left a little surprise for them and a little fairy dust behind. They were SO excited about this and couldn't wait to get up in the morning and see if she had been there.

Here is one of the surprises she left one night. Can you see the fairy dust??

We waited in a LONG line to meet the fairies. Hollace kept saying how when she met Tink she was going to tell her thank you for leaving her the surprises. I was wondering how this would go over.

Here are some of the fairies, I forgot their names and Hollace is not here to tell me.

Hollace had been saying that when she met Tink she was going to thank her for the things she had left, but when she finally met her she was so excited that she forgot. I I didn't remind her...

Disney: Part 9

We spent most of the fourth day at Magic Kingdom. It seemed like it got hotter as the week went on. It was in the nineties most of the time.

Here was another attempt at a pic in front of the castle. I don't think we ever did get a great one.

This was at Minnie's house. Remember the pictures that Hollace drew for her and gave her at breakfast the first day? Well when we were at her house. Hollace said, "I wonder where she put those pictures I gave her."......That is why I wanted to go now, instead of in a few years, when it wouldn't be quite as "magical" for her.

In Minnie's kitchen

In her sewing room

Hollace thought Nana would like this picture of her in the sewing room, since Nana can sew.
This was later on the carousel

and meeting Pinocchio

"Smiley Hollow"

Our church has a family event every fall at a place called "Smiley Hollow". It is a big farm with lots of fun things to do and happens to be where they filmed part of the "Hannah Montana" movie, or so I've heard. (This was actually a few weeks ago, but I've been trying to get Disney posts done.)

There were little rides and inflatable toys. Rhett loved this inflatable space-ship obstacle course.

There were horse-back rides.....
Thad was SOOO good and just hung out in his stroller the whole time.
They loved the Cotton candy, slushes, and popcorn
and what's a fall festival without a hayride (this is Hollace and one of her BFFs, Tiffany)

I LOVE FALL- and all the smells, and food, and colors, and holidays and sports, and weather, and fun-that comes with it!!!

Disney: Part 8

We were lucky enough to get reservations to have breakfast in Cinderella's castle with all the princesses. They made a big introduction of each of them, then they made the rounds to each table. It was lots of fun!-and Rhett was awake for this one!!

Snow White:
Sleeping Beauty:

The girls got a crown and the boys got this wonderful sword.

I love this picture of Rhett in his crooked ears with the knight.

Disney: Part 7

After dinner with the Cinderella crew we went to Downtown Disney where the "World of Disney" store is. It is a HUGE shop of everying Disney. We had a good time just looking at everything and trying out some of the items.

Hollace in her princess ears: (which she took home), and look at that pose.
