We just returned from our Disney trip on Saturday afternoon. We left on Friday, the 18th. We stayed at The Grand Flordian until Wednesday, where we then headed to Universal Studios until we headed home Saturday morning.

Florida was HOT, humid and HOT. I don't think I have ever sweated so much in my life! Our Texas heat has nothing on their heat! It was a long week full of Mickey, fun and lots and lots of meltdowns :)

For the first time, Remi was tall enough to ride pretty much everything at Disney. This little booger LOVED the roller coasters. His favorite at Disney was the Seven Dwarfs Miner Train roller coaster... I think he rode it 4 times. Roen wasn't so much into the fast roller coasters. He said "I not like that... it too fast". Roen's favorite ride was Winnie the Pooh :)

There is not really much explaining needed for these pictures, so I'll just let them tell the story.

The night before we left... I caught them sound asleep and all snuggled up

The first day there, we swam and then took the boys to watch the electrical parade at the Magic Kingdom... they were in awe

Micah couldn't make this trip, so my mom came to help me with the boys. Here is the whole group

All the cousins had matching Darth Vader pajamas (Kyndall had Princess Leia)... getting this picture was quite a challenge!

Playing a little Jet Pack the next morning before heading to Hollywood Studios

We went to visit Mickey again... all the cousins

Roen LOVES carousels

HOT and Sweaty... riding the train around the park... always a request of Roen's


Roen refused to take a picture with us :(

The Curious George splash and ball area was Remi's favorite thing of the whole trip... in fact, he was so excited, he ran off before I could get a picture!

Remi LOVES Scooby Doo, so he was on cloud 9 about getting to meet him!

Remi spotted this police rescue ride on our way back to the hotel to take naps. They were so excited to sit on it! Remi says he wants one of these when he grows up :)

Of course, I was SUPER DUPER excited to visit the Harry Potter areas of the park. They did not disappoint and I wish I could have explored them even more! Both boys got wands and loved casting spells around Diagon Alley!

Levitating the feather in the display window. There were dozens of places where the kids could recite a spell and with the correct swish of their wand watch magic happen. We did two and Remi was in heaven!

The pumpkin juice and butter beer were amazing!

Sporting our new Gryffindor Quidditch t-shirts

Checking our bags at the airport

And one last little snap of my Mouse Vader before we flew home :)

Oh my got some really great pictures. Lots of cute expressions and the awe and wonder in their faces. Glad you all had a great time and are back home to rest. It may take a couple of months to get your legs back under you. I forget...y'all are young!!! Thanks for sharing.
