We had such a wonderful time on our vacation. It was such a blessing to have 4 full days with my precious family! Where to begin? Well, we woke up early Thursday morning. I went to the kitchen to start breakfast. We like to eat a big breakfast before we leave for the parks. We made chocolate chip Mickey pancakes! Yummy!
Well, while I was fixing breakfast, Brian went to wake up the girls. He went to the girl's beds to discover a very feverish Avery. She had a temperature of 104 degrees! Needless to say, we got off to a late start that day! After children's motrin, she was feeling a little better and we decided to head out and try to make the most of the day. We went to Disney's Animal Kingdom that day. Avery spent the majority of the day sleeping in the stroller. We did have a great time that day, though. The girls absolutely LOVED the show Nemo, The Musical. They also both loved the Triceratop Spin, a fun little kiddie ride in the Dino-land section of the park. They were intrigued by the Safari, too. We even got to see the Lions up and prowling around. The animals were really awake and active this time! Even with Avery being sick, we all had a great day!

On Friday, Avery was feeling a lot better! That was good, since it was her birthday! We got up and had another special breakfast-Daddy made sausage balls! The girls got dressed in their princess dresses and we headed to The Magic Kingdom! Brian's parents and my mom and sister, Ashley came down and joined us for the day. It was a beautiful day and we had so much fun! We ate lunch at The Crystal Palace with Pooh Bear and Friends. It was GREAT!
On Saturday, we went to Sea World. It was another great day! I think Sea World was actually Avery's favorite place! She has now decided she wants to be a whale trainer when she grows up! They loved the Shamu show and the water and sand play areas the best. And, each of the girls got to pick out a stuffed animal. Avery chose a big, plush Shamu and Hadley picked the biggest stuffed dolphin I have ever seen! It is HUGE! It was a great way to end a great vacation!
