Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom was one of the best parks! The safari ride is definitely a ride I would recommend for anyone of any age. It was a safari vehicle (I forgot what it's really called) that is open and you go through these different areas and see the animals. A garaiffe was within an arms distance! The kids absolutely loved that and I think we would've rode on that 4 more times and all been content. Then, there were these chimps that would swing from branch to branch. The branches looked like they would snap at any moment. What a cool experience!!

Magic Kingdom

For anyone going to Disney, Magic Kingdom takes 2 days to do. On our first day, we did about half. The parade was great, but after the 4th time of seeing the SAME parade, it got a little bit old. When we went there was hardly any wait and the kids enjoyed doing all the rides, especially the go-kart type cars. We went every day in Disney from about 8:00 until 10:30-11. What a long day, but well worth it. We have so many jokes now and laughs to remember forever.

Disney - Day One

Disney was definitely a vacation to remember! I miss being around everyone 24/7. I have to say that I have one of the absolute best families. We had a great time. Jalen loved meeting all of the characters and getting all of the autographs. One our first day, which was the day we arrived, we went and toured our hotel and had dinner with Mickey and his friends at Chef Mickeys. The kids loved it. We have to say that if there is one thing we did good in Disney, it was eat. What yummy food they have and how I miss those desserts!!

Dad to Daughter

I have to say that I have an amazing Dad. I read this list of 50 things and I smiled at each one and chuckled some. I remember making pancakes on Sunday mornings with my Dad (I can hear him now saying to make sure they're bubbling before you turn them or they'll make a mess), I remember throwing the softball back and forth (even if I never wanted to run and chase it), and I clearly remember going fishing (just a few months ago). I love all these times and I treasure each and every day. Love you, Dad! <-- Very cute for any one, not just Dad's.
