Florida Vacation, April 2009

Day Two~ Magic Kingdom

We arrived at Magic Kingdom on Easter morning. We didn't celebrate it while in Florida though because the Easter bunny came the weekend before so we could enjoy it with our family at home.



 There was a ton of waiting in line.  We had just entered the park and stumbled upon a line for Daisy.



Lyds was in awe of everything. I do think this was the best park out of the parks we visited on our trip.

Several times during the day the Street Party parade makes a showing.



This photo is dark and hard to make out. We're in the Monsters Inc. Comedy Show and that is Lyds and I on the television screen. We "made it" into their comedy skit. It was a funny moment and while I was embarrassed, Lyds was all over the microphone, answering the questions they were asking. She is not a shy child.

We took a nice afternoon break on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority.

We never did actually get to see Cinderella. I guess she was busy with the Prince that day. We did get to see the mean step-sisters though. Lydia had a blast with these ladies and talked about them over the course of our trip. They really made an impact on her.

Lyds had collected some dry leaves as we were waiting for our turn and one of the step-sisters commented on her "interesting" choice of  flowers.



When in Disney World you shouldn't miss out on the opportunity to have Mickey ice cream.

Lyds is practicing the mean step-sister pose.

We're taking a rest in Mickey Mouse's house.



We took a much needed break and rode the Walt Disney World Railroad around the park.





Lydia tried so hard not to fall asleep. She crashed for a while and Pete and I were able to find a table and some shade and enjoyed some quiet time. We didn't leave Lyds in the cage, we swear!!

A thoroughly enjoyed day.

Day Three~ Universal Studios...

Florida Vacation, April 2009

I'm still backtracking...

In April we took a big adventure and drove to Florida to spend April Break. I was six months pregnant and Lydia was three years old. Poor Pete.

Lyds was impressively good on the drive down to Disney. We only had one meltdown on the trip down. Grandma Van Lenga was smart and packed a surprise goodie bag for us to bring on our road tip.

As you can see, Lyds was very entertained with the window markers.

We stayed at Pop Century Resort and the first thing we did was unpack our car and head to the pool!



 After swimming we headed to Downtown Disney to spend the evening.

 Lyds had a great time playing in the fountain.
