Disney World!

I've finally had some time to go through our Disney World pictures. We took a lot. And believe it or not, these are just a few. :) The real reason we went to Florida was not to take the boys to Disney World even though that's what the boys thought. Josh was coaching in the Under Armour All-American High School game. His quarterback from Shiloh also went with us and played in the game. It was the boys dream vacation, football and Disney World, all in one week! While Josh was at practices during the day we spent a lot of time at the parks. It was fun having Josh with us in the afternoons and nights. I was glad both sets of our parents got to come to!
One morning Josh and I took Peyton and Parker to a character breakfast at the Polynesian Resort. They had a blast and enjoyed one on one time with the characters and getting their autographs. Jack stayed back in the rooms with Nana and Gigi.

Jack got to ride most the of the rides that we rode and just looked amazed by it all. It was hilarious. Here he is about to ride the Dumbo ride with my parents.
Parker with his Nana in front of Minnie's house.
Josh and Peyton on Goofy's Brainstomer roller coaster. This was one of Peyton and Parker's favorite rides all week.
The weather was awesome. The high was 75-80 degrees everyday we were there. Only one morning we needed a light jacket. We were spoiled by the weather and the pool at our resort.
Our group with Mickey at Epcot.
I loved how after Peyton and Parker were done with their "time" with each of the characters they always walked over to see Jack too.
Three boys with Gigi and Poppy after the Nemo ride.
The boys playing the drums at Animal Kingdom before we went on the African safari.
The boys were probably most exited about meeting Buzz and Woody at Hollywood Studios. Their faces lit up like it was Christmas morning when it was there time to finally meet them and get their autographs.
Jack trying to figure out Buzz.
The boys LOVED the 4D Toy Story ride.
We ate out every single meal for 8 days and yes it was crazy! Here we are eating dinner at Coral Reef Restaurant in Epcot. The tables are all around the main wall of the restaurant which is basically a HUGE aquarium with all kinds of fish, sharks, turtles and scuba divers swimming while you eat.

As much as I enjoyed a full week off from cooking, at the end of the trip we were all ready to eat at home. However, now I'm ready to go back and enjoy another break. :) I'm going to start going through all the football pictures this week and will put them on here soon.
