We spent Day 3 of Disney back at the Magic Kingdom. PaPa joined us for the day. He was staying with my uncle Ken (his brother) in Orlando for a few days and drove over to Disney to visit the Magic Kingdom with us!
Main Street USA
Besides the "log ride" this was the kids other favorite ride. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
Papa photo bomb :)
MiMi was a life saver with Cade. She doesn't really like roller coasters so she watched him a lot so we could ride stuff with the kids.
Swiss Family Tree House
Stage show at the Castle
Aunt JJ made some really cute shirts for the kids!
My blue eyed boys!
Carson was worn out again by the end of day 3. Asleep on the bus, clutching his giant tube of colored sugar under his arm with a stained upper blue lip. Yep, I'd say he had a fun day!!
After a little rest that afternoon, we hit the pool!
Our last full day at Disney was spent at the Animal Kingdom. This place is amazing!
The Tree of Life
We went on an incredible safari where we saw tons of animals, including giraffes, elephants, lions, hippos and tons more!
They had a fun petting zoo. The kids loved it!
The big kids loved it too!
This was Carson's favorite ride at Animal Kingdom. Dinosaur. You ride in a (very bumpy) jeep through an interactive dinosaur adventure. There is a huge T-rex that jumps out at the jeep roaring at the end of the ride. Avery cried and Carson, of course, loved it!!
While Carson was riding Dinosaur again with Mimi, Avery and Daddy hit the midway (as I've said before, Shane just can't resist midway games) where he won her this duck and the boys some monkeys. Avery also got her face painted.
We got to enjoy a very yummy character buffet lunch at Tusker House at Animal Kingdom. The food was really good, I thought. And the kids got to meet lots of their favorite characters. Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy were all there.
Our last night at Disney World we went back to the Magic Kingdom for "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party." The kids got to dress up and go trick or treating in the park. It was so fun! The park stayed open until midnight and we finished our vacation with a bang and stayed until it closed that night. The kids got to meet lots of characters and ride so many rides. We were the very last train to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad that night.
Love this one of them in front of the lit up Cinderella castle!
The kids were, needless to say, exhausted the next day on our trip home, but we had an amazing time and felt like we got to do and see so much! We were greeted with this sweet sign and toys for the kids from our neighbors Jim and Susan, who were watching the house for us while we were gone. Seriously, the best neighbors ever!!
