The Happiest Place on Earth

With Aunt Betty and sweet Great Grandma Cookie.
Epic castle

It's a Small World afterall got a facelift since the last time I was here!

Let me just say that Walt Disney was right, it is the happiest place on earth. For spring break we took the trek to Florida to take Marc...I mean, the kiddos to Disney World. I really worried that they were not old enough and that they wouldn't be big enough to ride most things...but those fears were quickly dispersed after the first day (thanks to all the hugeness genes, M could ride everything he wanted and B could ride most things).
Yes, it is true...the drive was heinous...but I'd venture to say that it was worth it. We spent three days at the various parks, saw Aunt Betty and Great Grandma Cookie (a real treat!!) and also went to the beach in Destin on the way home. The kids were wonderfully well-behaved and didn't get too cranky despite our packed days and late nights. It was so fun to watch their faces and see them overcome fears. M went on almost all the biggest roller coasters. Ultimately he said that his favorite was Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain. He wasn't a big fan of the ones that were way too loud and/or dark.
True to his personality...B took right to roller coasters. To see his expression while on Thunder Mountain, you'd think he was in company with Santa, the Easter Bunny and trick or treating all at once.
I am pretty sure that Marc had the hardest time leaving. He was definitely the biggest kid of all for the week. I am glad he had fun and I am sure we won't be able to stay away for too long!
