the day started out sunny but with showers predicted for the afternoon. we were hopeful that the rain would hold off. the children enjoyed climbing trees while waiting for the shuttle bus. m1 was excited about dressing like snow white today, complete with the orange hat.
we were able to ride several rides and then the showers started... but we were prepared. check out our smiling cutie in the dollar-store-one-size-fits-all-rain-coat! we still had a portion of the park to cover and we were not leaving until we were done. luckily it was warmer today so we were not completely freezing while wet. the best part was people started to leave so the lines were very short. my dad and i were able to ride space mountain twice without any wait. after a few hours of getting wet we headed for lunch... i had my standard chocolate milkshake with lunch (loved that i had one everyday!) it was nice to sit down and get warm for a little while. everyone had a nice dessert ~ the children had mickey ice cream, nana had a sundae and the rest banana splits. yummy!
as we watched more people head to the exits we headed back out for more fun. this next ride aged me about ten years... because that is when my little ones will really be behind the wheel. little man and g~daddy were the first to come by with m1 and daddy right behind them. good grief! as quick as the last few years have gone by they will really be driving before we know it.
the original idea when we were planning this trip was to have three full days in the parks... on the last day we were going to spend the first part at the magic kingdom and the second part back at the resort, by the pool relaxing. we figured the children would be exhausted. but now here we are on day two of magic kingdom still at the park having fun at 6:00. we decided to ride it's a small world and the carousel as a group as our last two rides. we took some pictures as we were exiting the park.... and yes, mommy is on day three of rocking the camo hat!
m.i.c... see ya real soon, k.e.y... why, because we like you, m.o.u.s.e!
bye bye mickey...
