Pumpkin Patch 2016

Our Sweet Lil'Punkins



Our first magical memory making trip to DISNEY WORLD in Florida was a success!!

Our Resort

We stayed in a Finding Nemo Family Suite

Kid's bed
Each night Ella would say, "I'm sleeping with Nemo!"

View from our window out to the pool.  The swimming pool had music piped into it under the water.  Cool!

Kid's bathroom

 Surprised them with new jammies on our first night. 


Started with breakfast at Cinderella's Castle!

Our very own beautiful Princess Ella

 Princess Ariel (The Little Mermaid)

Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty)

Snow White 

Princess Jasmine (Aladdin)

Our breakfast was delicious!

Next we went to Belle's house...through the magic mirror into Beast's Castle

Michael's first ride at Disney was the carousel. 
Ella was not one bit interested.

 Gaston was HILARIOUS!!!!

Well, we kept smiling through the rain, but the monsoon eventually won.
We did squeeze in It's a Small World and Peter Pan's Flight.  Big hits with both kids.

Day 2 Hollywood Studios

Started with another yummy breakfast at Hollywood & Vine

Doc McStuffins


Princess Sofia (This was an Ella favorite)

Minnie Mouse 

Mickey Mouse

Then all things STAR WARS!

Darth Vader

Kylo Ren and Storm Troopers


BB8, C3PO, R2D2 and Chewbacca

 The force is strong with this young Jedi in training.

Then all things Toy Story

Green army guys were so funny!

Frozen Sing Along Celebration - SO FUN!! 
 The kids got a kick out of the snow falling from the ceiling

Dinner at the Spirit of Aloha Luau at the Polynesian

This is on my list of favorites for sure!

Towards the end of the Luau it rained again, but after the storm a beautiful Rainbow. 
What a joy to see God's Promise!

We stopped in the gift shop where our little guy had a blast, such a character!


 Turtle Talk with Crush - A Family Favorite!

 Bay Max

Anna and Elsa's Royal Somerhaus

Loved all the shrub designs.

Model Railroad in Germany

 We dined with the princesses in Norway at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall.  Ella asked Cinderella, "How did you get out of your castle?"  She replied, "In a carriage of course."


Mom and Michael rode Seven Dwarfs Mine Train while Dad and Ella rode Dumbo

Then Adam took them on the Teacup ride


Dinner at T-Rex Cafe

Michael's Peanut Safe Dessert - Chocolate Tarpit!

My people went a little bit crazy in the LEGO store!  

Day 5

Chef Mickey's for Breakfast at the Contemporary Resort


This is what parents look like by Day 5!

For sure one of our favorite things was watching The Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom.  I guess I was just too tired to take pics.  So sad, it was fantastic!

Kid's Snack Time

The next day we headed home.  We had a magical time and now have a better idea of how to plan our next trip to Walt Disney World.  Mickey...we'll See Ya Real Soon!
