The magical world of Disney

Let's start with the absolutely amazing news first, my dishwasher is running as I type this post. Cue the choirs of angels! It's been a very long 3.5 weeks, but we are up and running again!
Now that we have that out of the way....

Last night we took the kids and Mimi and Paw Paw to Magic Kingdom to see the Main Street Electrical Parade. It's only here for the summer so we wanted to go before it got unbearably hot. Our first stop though was to get Aaron's hair cut. He was looking extra shaggy and we figured since we were there and they did such a great job with his first haircut we would just go again. He was a little freaked out at first, but who can blame him after that not so Fantastic Sam's experience?

He looks like such a little man now, but he'll always be my little boy.

Since we had a lot of time to kill we had some dinner and went to see Mickey's PhilharMagic. Turns out this was Mimi's first time seeing something in 3D. Then we took the kids on Prince Charming's Carousel. The kiddos are old pros at this and pretty much act like they are Prince Charming and Cinderella the entire time they are on the horses.

Since the parade has only been at the park since Friday we knew we would probably need to get seats 2 hours before it started. I am so glad we did this, otherwise who knows where we would have sat. To kill some time we took the kids on the train, which they love, and then settled in to our spots.

I have to say the kids did amazingly well for sitting in one spot for an hour and a half. I'm sure that giant rice krispy shaped like Mickey helped.

When the announcement came on that the parade was starting the kids got super excited and then pretty much lost their minds for the next 20 minutes.

I am so glad they got to see this parade. Scott and I remember seeing it when we were really little, so it's great to have that same memory with our kids. That my friends is the magic of Disney.

So happy you have a running dishwasher. Happy day! And jealous you can do such fun things. We live in boring land.

aww, your kids faces at the parade are so cute! We are hoping to do Disney next summer with four kids under four, so I hope mine are as patient as yours are!
