More Magic Kingdom!!!

Monday back at the Magic Kingdom- With everyone feeling much better we got a better start and arrived at Disney World early. Just inside the front gates on main street the Mom's and kids waited to get a picture and signatures from Snow White and Dopey and Jiminy Cricket and Pinocchio while the Dad's went to get Mickey ears with the kid's names embroidered on the back, they turned out so cute! There is nothing as cute as a child in Mickey Ears, and we had five kids in hats and their Mickey t-shirts, they where the most adorable kids in all of Disney World! The Magic of walking down Main Street toward Cinderella Castle holding the hand of your child is a feeling I will never forget! Disney World is truly a magical and happy place. After riding Space Ranger Spin and the Stitch Ride we ate sandwiches and Mini corndogs for lunch by the Castle Lake and fed the ducks French fries. Brenner and Cayden had the ducks Jumping to get fries out of their hands. After lunch we caught the Princess and Pirate show on the steps of the Castle and after a ride on the Tea Cups, we headed for Toon Town. After the kids had a lot of fun on a simple run of the mill mall style playground (go figure, you arein Disney World and the kids love the everyday playground), the Moms and the little ones headed back to the room for a mid day nap as this was to be one of our longest days. We were so surprised that Mia did as well as she did, at 22 months we had our doubts about how she would handle such long and tiring days. She would take naps in the stroller almost every day, something we never thought she would do. Mia was such a good and fun filled baby for the whole trip, looking back; we could not have imagined the trip with out her- Thanks Mia!!! While some got some rest, Cort and I and Brenner and Austin Went to ride Space Mountain, Brenner loved it and got two extra fast passes so he and Mommy could ride it again that evening. The Boys rode Thunder Mountain Railroad the Haunted Mansion and several other rides in fantasyland before every one meeting back together at the Contemporary Resort for a Steak Dinner. The Dinner was great, the first one really enjoyed by all. The kids had tie died grill cheese sandwiches and pizza and for desert was a scoop of ice cream with all the fixings tomake their own sundaes at the table. The adults had Filet Minion and crembrule, Yummy!!! Back to the park for Laugh Floor and some souvenir shopping and the fireworks over the castle. Tinker bell flew over our heads and the Fireworks were spectacular as only Disney can do! After the show, Nikki And the boys went through the crowds to do some souvenir shopping, Mia was in Daddy's arms and started to cry, saying Mommy, Mommy. After she realized Mommy was gone she said "I Shop, I Shop". She knew that the boys were going shopping and did not want to be left out! This day Mia Got a Pink Princess Miney Mouse that rode by her side in the stroller the rest of the trip. Before leaving Disney World we caught the late Electric Parade, the floats where amazing and many would change from all white lights to instant full color before the kids eyes. Although very tired, by the looks on their faces, the kids loved it. Many great memories were made in the "Happiest Place On Earth"!
