Florida Family Vacation Part 4

The trip that never ends continues... :)

Meme and Papaw were kind enough to keep Levi for us while we went to Hollywood Studios the day after Disney World.  

We continued getting autographs!

We watched fun shows!

Kate got her face painted.  Mine needs makeup, but figured it would melt away from the heat.  

It was also the first day of the Star Wars Weekend.  The place was filled with crazy SW fans!

John found someone he knew :)

And Luke did too!

Jacob loves Monsters, Inc.

I'm so glad the kid is not shy!  

We had lunch reservations to eat with some of the characters.  That was fun!
sidenote:  we were seated at our table and i did not know jake was behind me and when i turned, his big gigantic head was in my face and i practically flew out of my chair, screamed like a little girl.  Jacob thought it was the funniest thing he had ever seen!  

Sorry June, I did not know who you were.  
Jacob had to tell me you're from Little Einsteins (which has the cutest theme song, somehow I do know that!).

Special Agent Oso

It did rain on us a little bit, but it actually felt good.  It didn't last long.
The parade was postponed, but once it finally cleared, the parade lasted long enough for me to take Luke and Jacob to the bathroom and miss it!  Go figure!

We took a break to see a cute show, aka naptime for Luke.

Waiting in line to see Buzz & Woody.  

Poor Buzz

There's some love

 The Toy Story ride was so fun!  

Such a fun day!  Next stop is Legoland!

Florida Family Vacation Part 3

We finally made it to Disney World!

This was taken before we left for a mid-day break.
We were melting.

We rented a double stroller for the boys.  Wish someone would've pushed me around!

We got many character's autographs, which was fun to see the boys' expressions.

I love Levi's face!

Levi would not let you put him down.  So I made Kris be in all the pictures :)

I love Jacob in this one :)

Since Kate and Luke already had Jesse and Woody's autograph, they rode Splash Mountain.
They are in the front row.

Once again, Kris saved the days and rode the rides that my stomach cannot handle:  circles/anything that spins

While Jacob was riding the teacups with Aunt B, Levi got his picture made with a rabbit we think is from Alice in Wonderland.

Levi did warm up somewhat and gave a high five to Buzz Lightyear

To cool off, we saw a couple of the 3-D shows.  Very neat!  Kids loved them!

Such beautiful landscaping at Disney World.

Another way to rest was to ride the people mover.  

We decided we'd go back to the house to rest, cool down and then head back that evening to watch the parade and fireworks.  We rode the ferry back to the parking lot and look who fell asleep sitting up.

My dad and big sis

Now waiting to catch the trolly... after the ferry

So everyone minus Meme, Papaw and Levi headed back that evening to catch the parade.

Afterwards, the lines for the rides were not long at all.  We took advantage of this and road rides until the park practically closed.  This Peter Pan ride was really cool.  It felt like you were flying :)

Finally it was time to call it a staying up way past my bedtime, who cares I'm on vacation night.

Next stop is Hollywood Studios!  Stay tuned :)
