More Disney - Day One

Waiting for the Magic Kingdom to open. They had hula hoops out to keep the kids entertained. We went to the Magic Kingdom on Tuesday, D's actual birthday.

The park was decorated with pumpkins and fall colors.

D upon rounding the corner and seeing the castle for the first time.

After passing through the castle, the Bibbidi Bobbity Boo helpers sprinkled D with Pixie dust.

Meeting Mickey and Minnie

C got his first haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop on Main Street in the Magic Kingdom. They put stickers all over him to keep him entertained and pre-occupied.

I didn't let her cut all his curls off, I just wasn't ready! They gave him Mouse ears and on the back it has embroidered "First Haircut."

D had her birthday dinner at the Crystal Palace Restaurant with the Pooh Characters
Here she is with her birthday cake in a pink treasure box.

And lastly a view of the castle as we left the park that night

On this day we visited Fantasy Land; Tomorrow Land; Frontier Land and Mickey's Toontown Fair.

P.S. I don't know why the video in the previous post isn't playing for some. Here is the URL for it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDJGgLSs6d0 maybe that will work.

"The Time of Our Lives"

Last week we surprised D for her birthday! We told her she would get to skip school Monday because we needed to take Daddy to Dallas and we'd stay in a hotel. We went Sunday night and stayed in the hotel and when she woke up Monday morning we let her open her birthday present a day early. This is what the "card" said:

She was pretty much in shock and asked when we were going. I answered, "as soon as we get dressed we're going to the airport!"

*I'll write more later. Baby brother is having a hard time with "re-entry" and is crying in his crib.
