We're Home!

We made it home from Disney World. We had a great time. A big Thank You to my mom who came and helped out with Maddy!! I don't know how people did it with more than one kid.

Maddy loved the characters but not the dark rides so much. Probably because we did the Haunted Mansion and Snow White's Scary Adventure with her on the first day. BTW Snow White was scary... I didn't even really like it.

Nate and I got to do Mission Space and it was really cool. For those of you who don't know what Mission Space is as close as you can get to blasting off into space with out leaving Earth. I have to admit I was a bit nervous at first (I have been known to get motion sick on some spinning rides) but once I got used to the sensation it was awesome. Of course there was the Tower of Tower and the Rockin' Roller Coaster, two of our favorites. We also went on a Safari and saw some great shows. The Lion King, It's Tough to be a Bug, Mickey's Philharmagic and my favorite the Hoop Dee Doo Review.

Maddy loved the Dumbo and the Aladdin rides. We should have taken more time to watch the parades and play in the pool but I felt like we spent so much time waiting for the bus I didn't ever want to leave the parks until the very end, which was fine for the adults but not so great for a very overstimulated two year old.

Ahh I guess I will know better for next time. Here are some of our pictures and short videos from the trip. We are trying something new ... we are going to try to post a slide show. If it doesn't work, we'll do another post. We'll also add some additional photos once we receive the official Mickey photographer ones. If this slideshow doesn't work, try going to our picasa page for all the photos and videos. ( http://picasaweb.google.com/nate.traci/DisneyWorldMay2008 )

Got your package, and got misty eyed and emotional as I held the baby blanket. Victor thinks I'm a total nerd...lol.

Can't wait to see you!!!!

Oh my gosh, I almost cried when I saw the video of Maddy. She is looking so much older!!! I miss that laugh. I love the pictures and can't wait to show them to Sydney tomorrow morning. She is going to love them. Looks like you had a great time. I am so glad you went!!! XOXO
