Disney World!!!!!!!!

We just got home from an AMAZING trip to Disney World! We met Joe's parents, sister(Beth), and niece (Sami) in Florida. Joe's other sister Andrea and her husband Adam are in the Nemo show at Animal Kingdom. (Andrea primarily plays Dory, but she also sometimes plays Deb and other various characters and Adam plays Marlin, aswell as Bruce, Mr. Ray, and other various characters! It's awesome having celebrities for relatives :) So we went to see them and play around the parks. We had soooooo much fun! Andrea and Adam really went to extra mile to make sure we had the time of our lives!

We stopped in North Carolina on the way down to see Joe's cousins and we took a picture of the kids in front of the Raleigh NC temple.
We also stopped in Savannah GA on the way to Florida. I didn't take any pictures but it was a fun little town. I'd love to go back there someday.

We stayed at 'Fort Wilderness Campsites' while at Disney World. We had a cute little cabin with with a fully functional kitchen and plenty of beds. It was the best of both worlds for our kids (and me). Camping and Disney World rolled into one week!

Day one was Epcot. Both Joe and I had been to Disney World once before in High School but neither of us had been to Epcot before. We did a few rides, and toured all the countries, but I think the highlight of the day was having a "Story time lunch" in Norway where all the princesses come around to each table and talk to the kids, sign autograph books , and take pictures. All the kids loved it but for Emily in particular it was "life changing"! It was so fun watching her face as she met each one of the princesses I think she hugged each one 5 times! I've never seen her so elated.

(the first pouting fit of the trip :)Day two was Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney. Of course my camera battery was low so I didn't get as many pictures as I'd like but Oh well. We spent the first half of the day doing rides at Magic Kingdom. Then we spent the afternoon at Downtown Disney where aunt Andrea treated all her nieces to a makeover at 'Bibbity-Bobbity-Boutique'. They got their hair, makeup, and nails done and a little crown to and sash to wear around the parks for the rest of the day.
After makeovers we went back to Magic Kingdom for dinner in Cinderella's Castle! (Probably the highlight of the trip for me!) We met and took pictures with Cinderella. Then we were served a delicious dinner while all the other princesses came around to each table! So fun! Again, Emily was elated!

Day three was Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios! We actually saw the Nemo show twice while at Disney World but this is the show where I remembered to take pictures. Andrea was Dory for this show and Adam was Bruce.

We finished our day at Hollywood studios and then left for home early the next morning! We had such a great time! We did a lot but there's so much to do we can't wait until we can go back again! Thank you Ange and Adam!!!!!! We miss you already!
