Disney World and Jack Turns Six!!!!

So since Disney World is only two hours away, we decided to celebrate Jack's birthday by spending last weekend with Mickey.  It was an easy drive and we stayed at Shades of Green which is a resort specifically for service members and their families (and maybe retirees??) located right on the Disney World property.  While it was wall-to-wall bodies in the Disney parks we all still managed to have a great time!  Let me tell you, this is the time of year to visit Disney because the weather was superb.  After two parks in three days with three kids, Jay and I came home exhausted...but it was worth it. :)

 Disney World!!

Strollers had to be stowed on the short bus ride to the monorail station...and the twins took this freedom seriously.  I know the bus drivers were always glad to see us get off. 



 This is the only napping that occurred during the trip!

 Dino-rama (at Animal Kingdom) was a huge hit!

Watching...what else...the Disney channel while waking up. 

Inside Disney's Polynesian Resort which was beautiful. 

The Tomorrowland Speedway was hands down Jack's favorite ride! 



Jay and his mini-me Matthew.

Note: While in the clip Nathan refuses cake, upon seeing the rest of us savoring the deliciousness he quickly changed his mind. :)

Isn't Disney just the stuff dreams are made of? Outside of the crowds I think it is just THE most fun place on earth! Your pics are wonderful, your boys are so stinkin' cute....looks like they had a fantastic time! They are just the right age to take on rides and enjoy it all. We took our grands to Cedar Point last summer and had such a great time! They would love Disney...maybe someday...
Thanks for the virtual vacation...that was fun!
