Spring Break: Disney Edition

It's so weird to think that I have a kid who has a spring break.  I don't know why it's getting to me.  Noah's getting ready to finish his last year of PreK and Emmy's getting ready to start school.  My kids are growing up so fast and I can't seem to slow it down.  I know it's just a part of parenthood but I don't think they ever mentioned in any parenting books (Ok lets be real...I never read any so how would I know) that they will grow up faster than you know it. I'm learning to deal with it but while I'm learning, I'm loving every minute I have with them!

My mom works at the same school that Noah goes to so she was on Spring Break at the same time.  We decided to load the kids up for a few days of fun with Mickey.  Wednesday morning we said goodbye to Daddy and headed to Orlando.  Ironically enough, our hotel room was ready when we got up there at 1030 so we moved in for the week.  It was nice to start the vacation by being completely unpacked and settled in, instead of having to do that at night when everyone is tired.  We grabbed a quick lunch and headed to Epcot.  It's the Flower and Garden Festival right now so all the topiaries were out.  I was pretty much in charge of the stroller the whole weekend so I didn't take as many pics as I usually do (and one of these days I'm hoping to get my mom's memory card so I can have her pics)
Checking out the Fairy Garden
the most amazing sand sculpture
meeting Alice
She had such a great time with Aurora!!!  She danced and played with her for a while
We rode all of our favorite rides and even went on a few new things for us.  Epcot really isn't for little kids but for some reason, my kiddos love being there.  Em had a great time meeting some of the characters while Noah watched on from the stroller.  After spending a pretty decent amount of time there, we headed back to the hotel after a quick stop at Target for some groceries. It was dinner and bed for all of us.  Magic Kingdom was waiting for us in the morning!!!



  1. Those topiaries are amazing! And I love the pics of Em meeting the princesses. :)

  2. We were in Orlando in December but didn't get to visit Epcot. I hope to make it there one day! Those topiaries are amazing, great shots.

    I hear you on kiddos growing up too fast. My daughter has 3 weeks of school left and then she will officially be an 8th grader. It's so hard to believe that in another year she will be in high school. I think I'm going to go cry now!!!!

    Have a good day dear friend!
