Pumpkin Town

We took the kids to Pumpkin Town twice this Fall.  Once on Lo's birthday and then again this past week.  Lo loves Pumpkin Town!  She said, "When we get there, we are going to take my picture, then I am going to play on the toys!"  Haha, silly girl.  At least she knows I love taking pictures and semi cooperates.  I think Andrew had just as much fun as Lo did.  I'm so thankful Lo has a daddy who will get down to her level and play with her!  We are so blessed!




We went again later in the month with Shannon, Lexi, Kason, and my mom.  They all had so much fun!

Fishing Tournament

Andrew took Lo to a kid fishing tournament at the Lake in our neighborhood.  They gave her a free Elsa fishing pole and Andrew said she had a blast!  She caught two fish and wanted to "touch it and eat it."  She's so excited to go fishing again with her Daddy! 

Walt Disney World

We went to Walt Disney World for a few days and had a great time.  We left on a Friday and came back on a Tuesday.  On Friday we left early in the morning. Lo and Drew were great on the plane.  Drew slept and Lo played with her toys and watched a movie. 

When we got to Orlando, we hopped on Disney's Magic Express and headed to our resort, Fort Wilderness.  Once we got settled, we hopped on another bus and went to Downtown Disney to eat.  We went in a few shops and Lo rode the carousel. 

The next day we woke up bright and early, hopped on the fairy, and headed to Magic Kingdom, my favorite!  Lo loved seeing Cinderella's Castle. 

The first thing she wanted to do when we got there was ride the carousel...her favorite ride!  We then rode dumbo and met Minnie and Daisy.  She wanted nothing to do with seeing them up close by herself.  Thankfully, she was fine as long as we held her.   She also rode the teacups with her daddy and really wanted to "get dizzy." 

We rode Peter Pan and did Storytime with Belle and then both kids napped while we walked around a bit. 


Afterwards, we headed for lunch in Cinderella's Castle.  All the princesses were there.  I figured Lo would be excited, but no, wanted nothing to do with seeing them up close.  She did love admiring them from afar though. 

After lunch, we rode Ariel and It's a Small World.  Lo loved those rides!  We then caught the Mickey show before we headed back to the resort.  It was a fun, exhausting day! 


The next day, we went to Animal Kingdom.  We watched the Lion King and then rode the Safari. Afterwards we grabbed a quick bite to eat and then watched the Little Nemo show.  We then decided to head back to the hotel in time for nap time.   

After naps, we headed back to Downtown Disney. Lo rode the carousel with her daddy and we waited to our dinner reservation at Rainforest Café.

The next day we headed to Hollywood Studios. First up was the Disney Jr show.  Lo and Drew both loved it.  And by the looks of Andrew's face, he loved it too. :)

We then went to watch Beauty and the Beast.  It was great!  Afterwards, we ate lunch at an Italian place that was really good and then headed to watch the Frozen sing-along.  It was cute and Elsa and Anna made a quick appearance at the end.  We headed back to the hotel after that, took naps and then once again headed to Downtown Disney.  We did some shopping and ate at Wolf Gang Pucks. 

The next morning, we were up at 4am to head to the airport.  The kids did awesome and even though Lo wouldn't nap at all, she was great....a bit delirious by the time we got to Dallas, but still great!  Once we got to the truck, she was out and slept for hours after we got home. 

We had a great time at Disney, but there sure is no place like home!
