Our First Disney Vacation

I have never been to Disney World and never really wanted to go until about six months ago. I decided I wanted to take Cash before he started kindergarten in August.  I knew I didn't want to go in the summer or during any time that is considered peak season.  After a little disney research and the conclusion that I was not taking Arden, we booked our trip.  Alese had school and Arden I thought was maybe to young to go so it was a special birthday trip for Cash. Wrong! :) One of my close friends came to me and said, "I went to Disney in October, we took all boys and all we talked about was how much fun Disney would be with a little girl.  It is so magical and you are going to sad when you get there if you don't take Arden with you."  Oh she was so right, we decided to take Arden with us, good thing too because I would have cried once I got there if my little princess wasn't there!!

Kids have a certain "magic" about them until a certain age.  When they are in awe of every thing, they still believe in princesses, pirates, Santa Clause etc....and Disney World is the PERFECT place to take kids during the "magical years".  We stayed six days and I would have stayed longer, I LOVED it, it was the best vacation as a mother ever.  Cash and Arden had so much fun and so did me and Master P.  We are already planning another trip back, we talk about it weekly.  It is an expensive vacation even in the "off season", we went January 8th, PERFECT weather and the crowds were thin and when we go back, it will be in January again.  I am already saving money and get sad every time I see a Disney commercial because I want to go back NOW! ha.  I am so thankful to God for a wonderful family vacation, for great weather and good health of my family!! Here are some pictures, I will choose some favorites since I took 400! :)
All of us in our matching shirts! Daddy wouldn't wear his the same  day. He is no fun!

I can't tell you how much my kids LOVED the characters.  Cash could not care less about the princesses but his face LIT up when he saw any of the other ones!

Look at these smiles!!

This is how Arden greeted all the princesses!! She hugged them so big and tight and didn't want to let go. It was so precious!

Princess Kiss!

Cash loved the Country Bear Jamboree

I look at these pictures every week to see these big smiles!!!

It took a little while before I actually heard the announcement  not to take flash photos on the rides.  OOPS!

Arden about to made up like a princess!!


Ohhh i love cotton candy!!

A girl can not travel without here bows!

Pluto was Cash's favorite!

Snow White was Arden's favorite!

Cash being transformed into a Pirate!!

Captain Jack Sparrow, mama liked him!! He was easy on the eyes!

These kids put in 12 hour days, more on some days with no resting or naps. You can only do this in Disney! :)

I loved this one.  Goofy holding up Arden's Samba doll like they do in the LIon King!
