We Love Disney World!!

We just got back from three days of Disney!! The first day we went to Disney's MGM. It was hot, hotter, and hottest! The weather was brutal but we still had a good time. James and I rode the tower of terror, and the Aerosmith roller coaster; they were AWESOME!! Dorothy was chosen to be one of the kids to dance at Playhouse Disney and she LOVED it!! We also went to the Beauty and the Beast musical show twice. Dorothy sat mesmerized the entire show!

The next day we went to Magic Kingdgom. We love this park!! We went to all the usual rides: Pooh, Peter Pan, Buzz, and then Dorothy discovered Goofy's Barnstormer roller coaster. Well, we spent the rest of the day waiting in line for that and meeting characters. Dorothy loved meeting all the characters and especially the princesses. We finished the day eating dinner in Cinderella's castle where Dorothy had her picture taken with Cinderella. Then we ate upstairs in her castle while enjoying a show with the mice and the Fairy Godmother. Preston was sooooo good the entire time at the park. He would just stare at all the rides and eat his fist:)

The last day we spent at Epcot. They just opened up a new Finding Nemo ride which Dorothy fell in love with! We also went to the talking Crush show three times so that Dorothy would get the chance to talk to Crush and thank goodness she did. I don't think I could have handled another show!! We also visited all the countries and ate in Italy!! Preston met Tigger and was facinated by him!! It was a magical family vacation that we will remember for years to come!!!

Ok this is the funniest thing.... Dorothy after watching me take 1,000 pictures (just like my Dad!) Had to take some pictures, so here are three of her pictures. James and I have laughed for hours over the one she took of herself!!

Girls night out!!

I went out with a few of my friends to PF Chang's!! I love that place! We enjoyed the lettuce wraps among other things! I am really going to miss all of these wonderful friends I have come to love so much!!

Go Diego Go!

Daddy, Preston, and Dorothy helping baby jaguar
get her growl back!!!!

We went to Go Diego Go Live it was fun! Dorothy thought it was the best thing she had ever seen!! She almost jumped out of her seat when Dora came onto the stage!! James kept asking how much did we pay for this??? He was not as impressed as the three year old.... Wonder why? Oh well, we love experiences that some day we will look back on with fond memories because Dorothy will be into things like boys and makeup!

Mommy and Dorothy at the show!!

Happy 4th of July!

Well, I absolutely love the 4th of July!!! I love this wonderful Country and the freedoms we enjoy! There is no other Country in the world like this one! I am grateful for a holiday that helps us remember what we have!

James taking the kids swimming!

Preston's first 4th!

We had a BBQ with some friends, went swimming, got rained out, and lit off a few fireworks we got at Target! It was a blast!

Dorothy loved the sparklers!!!
