Magic Kingdom 2010

And awwwaaaaaaay we go!
Our one and only family shot in front of Cinderella's castle. Which, by the way, Ellie has no concept of yet, (thank you,LORD!), so we didn't have to buy the dress, pay for the hairstyling, or attend the breakfast with the princesses! All in due time, I am sure, and you can bet, Todd the Bod is EXCITED about that!!
I bought a Christmas ornament with the castle on it, and it has a spot for a wallet sized photo. Even though the glaring sun was killing my girls' eyes, this is going to have to do for our Christmas tree next year!
And this is Todd and his parents. Oh, and any photog would tell you to watch for what's in your background. I have no idea what that is growing out of Todd's head!
Oh, and Lindsay and Melinda... see that Castle? I like to STROLL around it, not RUN through it. Count me out on any 1/2 marathon. Maybe I can get back as a cheerleader. I am good at that!

Remember, this is "the happiest place on earth." They are EVEN happier if you buy their overpriced balloons.
We went to the candy store where Ellie found a couple of suckers....
HERE they are!
Ahhh, grandparents. Know what I LOVE about this picture?
I am not toting a baby! THEY are in a line to ride Peter Pan and I am eating an ice cream cone, sitting on a bench with my hubby.
and like that... it was over. Now it's Todd's turn. This was a baby roller coaster. Turns out my little dare devil may be more like her mom than we even knew.
Not really her thing!

This is on a monorail between parks.
A sweet moment, and then, you KNOW how I am about Hand pictures!
I'd say all in all, Magic Kingdom lived up to our expectations.
Gabbi Girl got her a sucker too, so all was right with the world!

SO FUN!!!! And it just gets better every year!

In Ellie's defense, that is a jerky roller coaster! Renee won't ride it, but she will ride splash mountain. How crazy is it that I have a child old enough to ride that!?!?
