vacation ~ day one and two!

Saturday, October 13th, 2007
The first day of our vacation was spent mostly traveling. We left OKC early (before daylight) Wednesday morning. Here we are at our first layover in St. Louis, MO.

We arrived in Orlando around 3:00 p.m. and made our way to “Give Kids the World” at about four. We were taken to our villa where we found a gift basket full of fun goodies and a fridge full of yummy treats! A big Mickey Mouse doll for Izzy and shamus for everyone! They brought gifts for each kid everyday with the daily newsletter of events and menu. It was so much fun! and the fun started! and then Izzy fell fast asleep!Up early Thursday morning, we met Mickey & Minnie (and Belle too!)

The kids played in the water for a little while in the morning. Here’s Bailey trying to hide, he didn’t want to be caught playing in the fun water park (teenagers :o)… and then we got ready to go to Disney’s Magic Kingdom!

This is the monorail thingy that we had to ride into the park. I was so hot and Izzy got upset and fell asleep when I held her. This is one of the many lovely flattering pictures of me, notice the incredible amount of glow I have :o)! Here are my cool kids, getting ready to enter Magic Kingdom!

We rode lots of rides. Izzy liked the sleeping beauty ride and here are me & Amanda on the dumbo ride.

Me reassuring Izzy on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride :o)! (kisses always help)

I’ll be back soon for day three!

We had a fun “date.”
We first shopped a little, and then stopped and got food from Panera Bread.
We took it to the park.

Here’s what I ate :o)!
Broccoli cheese soup & a half of an italian sandwich
(with balsamic dressing) YUM!
We walked…

We fed the ducks…

That’s all!
