Sophia's Disney Transportation

Sophia had many modes of transportation in Disney, but her favorite was being held by Daddy in some form or fashion. She's Daddy's girl!

Ring Around the Rosy + Pictures Loaded!

I have finally finished loading up the pictures from the trip onto Kodak Gallery. If you are interested in seeing them all (and are a friend of mine), please email me at: and request to view them. I will then send you a personal invitation to view them at Kodak Gallery. I don't want to just put the link out for everyone, but I'm happy to share with friends.

Here are a few pictures of Sophia & Gracie playing 'Ring Around the Rosy' at the house. They wore themselves out!

Exploring Minnie's House!

TWO POSTS TODAY: Scroll down for the 2nd one - you don't want to miss it! Left: Noah and the girls explore Minnie Mouse's fridge .

Below: The girls take a break and sit on Minnie's couch. From left to right, Sophia, Gracie, Meisi and Bethany. Reminds me of the famous 'Red Couch' photo in China, but with a WHOLE LOT LESS crying! ;)

Sliding with Friends!

Here's a picture of all four girls on a slide in the Magic Kingdom. The 'bigger kids' were on Splash Mountain, and this play area was the perfect place for the girls to stretch their legs and get crazy! They all got along so well! From top to bottom we have Gracie, Sophie, Bethany and Meisi.

Crystal Palace Character Breakfast

This was our first trip into Disneyworld as a big group. There were 16 of us, and we had a character breakfast reservation at the Crystal Palace (in the Magic Kingdom) before the park opened. It was so nice to get right in before thousands of other people did! I'm not in the picture, because I was the one taking the picture. Here's the whole gang, minus me. The second picture is of Eeyore, Paige and Sophia. Sophia wasn't afraid at all of the characters, and would give them a hug and kiss, and pose for pictures. After breakfast, we spent the day in the park, and had an absolute blast. More pictures to come. I've taken hundreds and hundreds of pictures and need to go through them and upload to Kodak Gallery. I'll keep posting them here, when I get the time. Comments appreciated!

We're HOME!

We just arrived home about 15 minutes ago. We should have been home 2 days ago, but our flights were canceled due to the storms along the east coast. We showed up Friday at the Orlando airport and waited in line for more than 2 hours to figure out what to do. They re-scheduled us for this morning, (two days later) and bumped us up to FIRST CLASS (at my gentle request!) So, we had to go get another rental car, and find a hotel for two nights. After trying the hotel we'd stayed at before (all booked and 3 times the price since it was spring break), and calling/stopping at a few others, I called Disneyworld, and (after much confusion and being on hold for 15 minutes), we were told to go to the All Star Music Resort, they were holding a room for us. Yes! Phew! We arrived minutes later, only to find they didn't know anything about holding a room for us, in fact they didn't have any single rooms available. UGH. But - they apologized for the confusion, and put us in a FAMILY SUITE! Here's the BONUS: for the price we would have paid for the single room. So, we had a $285 room (2 baths, kitchenette etc) for the price of the simple, basic room. Very cool. We had used up all our Disney passes, so we just hung out at the pool, the arcade and food court and relaxed. We had to get up at 2:30 this morning to get to the airport for our flight, so it was off to bed early! We had a wake-up call from Mickey Mouse at 3am, but we were already awake. Needless to say, we're all pretty tired, and I'll post pics as soon as I can. Probably tonight or tomorrow. It's good to be home!

Disneyworld Here we Come!

It's cold here. Current temp outside is -1. And then if you factor in the wind chill... brrrr! What a great time to go to WARM AND SUNNY FLORIDA!!! I will try to post at least a couple times while I'm there, and will make up for it with lots of pics when I get home, I promise! See you in a week and 1/2!
