Magical Days

Okay, okay...  Sorry I missed my Tuesday Lists...but I am on Spring Break...and yesterday...I was at Disney World...one of my most favorite places.  It is just so magical.  Ben says I drank the "Disney koolaid" a long time ago...but get him into the park witnessing the excitement and wonder in the kids' eyes and he goes giddy too.  Honestly, I may be a little more extreme that he is...considering the fact that as we paid for our parking I said to Ben, "He is going to give you your change and say 'Have a magical day!'"  He did.  I teared up.  Totally dorky, I know.  In the same way, every time I start down Main Street for the first time of a visit, it takes my breath away.

Before we left, everyone and their brother told me what a terrible idea Spring Break + Disney World was.  I'm not exactly sure how, but we managed to do everything that we wanted to without waiting in a bunch of lines.  We have been to the park before and we knew what we wanted to do...so I guess that helped.  I loved that the kids remembered that the first ride we went on two years ago was It's A Small World, so they wanted to do that first again.  I think that makes it a tradition?


I love the excitement.
I love seeing Jillian meet her favorite princesses.  She wants to be a mermaid when she grows up...
I love the wonder.
I love the smiles.
I love the way my son loved it...even the princess things.
I love that everyone is happy.
I love that in some way, each time we go, something magical happens.
Yesterday, this moment, caught on video was pretty darn special.  I wish I would have gotten the kiss on the cheek after the dance...you know the photo people of Disney caught it...I'll probably have to buy it.

  2. So much fun! I love your excitement. I think that tends to rub off on kids and they enjoy the experience more because of it. :)
