Disney - Part I

We took a trip to Disney on Tuesday with Dusty & Arin & co. and had such a wonderful day! It was just a wee bit hot (in the 90s, as is typical for a Florida September) and it rained, but only for about 10 minutes. Then the skies cleared and we were off to ride some more rides and sweat a little more :)

Our sweet little family in front of the castle. This was right when we got there, which is why we aren't yet drenched in sweat.

The first stop: The Carousel! Both girls loved it.

Next on the agenda: Dumbo! Naomi was not so much a fan of this one. She had to be strapped in while sitting on my lap. She wanted to be held facing me, so that ride was not enjoyable for the two of us. But Charlotte loved it!

Then we met Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse! Charlotte was beyond excited! Her "fabrite" show is Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and she loves all things Mickey and Minnie. She walked right up and gave Minnie a hug. Naomi preferred slobbering on their noses and grabbing their ears. It was worth the trip down there to see the girls' reaction to them!

After that, we saw the princesses. Charlotte enjoyed meeting them, but I guess didn't feel the need to smile. The princesses did such a wonderful job greeting the kids. They totally play the part with the dainty movements and gestures, but don't hesitate to squat down to talk with them, calling the kids "little princesses and princes". It's so sweet.

Jasmine. With her belly button and tummy looking like that, I'm going to guess she hasn't had kids :)

Aurora. This made me wonder when the last time I saw Sleeping Beauty was. It had to be at least 15 years ago.

Naomi looking super cute with her ears that I made her on (these didn't last very long into the day). She's also showing off the two tiny teeth she has coming in!

Naomi falling asleep...

Fighting it just a little...

Giving in to the exhaustion...

And she's out for the count!

Charlotte and Jared on the People Mover

Charlotte didn't want to pose for me to get a good shot of her with the castle in the background, so this is the best I got.

More pictures to come tomorrow. It's late and I'm tired.
