Disney World 2009

I know some of you have seen these pictures a couple of times. However, my family doesn't facebook, or have email addresses. I am posting this in hopes that they will get to see these at least on my blog.
We had so much fun, and I wish we were still there. It was especially memorable to just spend the time together.

Summer was just the right height with her runners on. She made the 40" mark, and was able to go on all but like 4 rides. We were mean in the sense that we had her go on everything she was tall enough for. For instance below is a picture of her bawling after we took her on the Tower of Terror. I felt bad during the ride because I was even a little freaked out. The only other rides she didn't like was Dinosaur, and the Haunted Mansion.

She was so good the whole time, and most of all it was so enjoyable to watch the excitement on her face when she met a character or had fun on a ride. I really hope she remembers this vacation, because she had a lot of fun.

We ate so much junk, and still she is asking for chicken nuggets. I would think she would never want one again. I had the classic frozen banana that was super good.

Below are a bunch of our pictures with a short caption for each.
Random ride we were on.
Summer and Phil in the 3D glasses.
The Canadian Pavillion at Epcot. Of course we could not pass by without checking it out.
Trying to look like a pirate after the Pirates of the Carribean ride.
Phil trying to look like Jack Sparrow I guess.

The Swiss Family Tree house.
This is a horrible picture of us with the heat and humidity, however, I love how the had the Magic Kingdom all decorated with Mickey Halloween decor.
Mickey and Minnie Mouse of course.
The castle around nighttime.
This was fun to watch. I tried to get Phil to go and dance with them, but he wouldn't.
Another Halloween statue. The place was just decorated so cute.
Summer freaking out before the Tower of Terror because we are in a dungeon.
After the ride she is not so happy anymore. It was a rather intense ride.
The chicken coop from the Hannah Montana movie.
Hollywood Studios
Hollywood Studios again. While it was my least favorite of the four parks, it did hav my favorite ride. The Rockin' Rollercoaster featuring Aerosmith. It was the most intense for me.
In Asia at the Animal Kingdom.
Pocahantas and Meeko
The Lion King show was super good.
Minnie Mouse in the parade. She was my favorite when I was little. I loved Minnie and Mickey. Times have changed, because it is all about the princesses now.
Captain Hook, Melissa, Philip, Summer, Smee
Pluto, Summer, Goofy

It was well worth the drive, the expense, and everything. We actually got an awesome package and kept getting upgraded to nicer rooms in a nicer hotel, so that was a bonus. It was really a blast, and we hope to go again soon.

Summer's First Day of Preschool

Yesterday Summer had her first day of preschool. It was fun to see her so happy and excited to go. I thought she would be shy and cry, but she went right in and I turned and left. I have to admit, I was a little sad that she is growing up. Luckily I had to fill out some papers right after, otherwise I might have been a little more emotional.

When I went to pick her up I waited in the car as the teachers brought them to the car. You can see above she is the one at the very front.

Below is a cute little loot bag I made for her very first day of school. I found the tutorial here.
This is an awesome website full of fun and free tutorials.
