Bibbity Bobbity Boutique

Ok, If you have a little girl, this is THE place to go. Ryan is already talking about going back here when her hair gets longer. Since the poor thing broke her arm, we thought it would be fair for her to have a "spa" day at Disney. The price is reasonable if you take your own dress (from the dress up box at home). I had to make the reservation months in advace, but it was SO worth it. Since her hair was so short, they didn't have too many options but they did a fantastic job making her feel

special and she chose the pink hair (of course)...I wanted the "Princess" style, it looked kind of like Cinderella, maybe when we go in 2008...She did have a blast and the boys weren't too miserable. They did have the option to go next door to the LegoLand store, but they opted to hang with sweet!

Epcot 2007

So we spent a day and a half at Epcot. Each day we drove the kids like mules, and some of the pictures reflect that. Do we seem a tad sleepy? We were! But not a complaint all week and the kids had a blast. I really think that this was the boy's favorite spot. Mom and I liked Norway (I like the ride, mom liked the shopping). Ryan was just happy to be showing off her beautiful new hairdoo to all the folks in line. No Princesses here so she just became the Princess.

Sea World

This is one of my favorite parks. Did you know that I wanted to be a marine biologist when I was in middle school? Yeah, until I realized my intense fear of the ocean! For Sea World day we met up with my Uncle Paul, Aunt Marcia and my cousin Kristy. There were troubles with the rides breaking down and it was HOT but I still love this park. The Shamu show is something spectacular and the touch tanks are SO cool. Jared loved the penguin house, Kevin loved the sharks and Ryan loved the dolphins & sting rays. There was also a really cool kiddie area with a small roller coaster and a HUGE playplace. That was great at the end of the day after all the heat.

Homer-Harvey Disney Trip 2007

We went down to see the Mouse with six kids, four parents and three grandparents. The trip was bittersweet since Ty was getting very sick, but the kids really seemed to get caught up in the magic. Ryan had broken her arm on Labor Day, so instead of an autograph book she used her hot pink cast. The boys used their baseball caps. Gran's favorite ride was the Buzz Lightyear, I think she'd ride that 80 times in a row! Ryan loved meeting all the Princesses, of course! I loved walking down Mainstreet with my children. The boys spent two days riding on Space Mountain, so my guess is that they loved that ride the most.
