So after 10 days of vacation, 4 days at Disney, my husband has a nickname for me: Clark Griswold a.k.a. Sparky. I guess I’m the Energizer Bunny/Sparky to his….Scrooge? But he’s almost vacationed out. I’m trying not to get upset and just continue to enjoy my ol’ Griswold self. Cuz I’m having a blast. And so are the kids.
Can I tell you that they haven’t fought once? No exaggeration…20 hours in the car and 10 days of complete togetherness and no fights? I love these children. See, Disney is really magical!
Matt is having fun posing for pictures though. We keep cracking up at all of the grown-ups at the parks who are there without kids who stop and pose for pictures. No offense to any of you out there who might do this but we just think it’s downright hilarious. Probably because we wish we could vacation alone too. I’d probably strike a damn fine pose if I was on vacation with just my husband. Of course we wouldn’t be at Disney, but I digress.
He also had to take a picture of this guy. He was all tucked in a prim and proper…except for his shirt tucked into his underwear. We’re so very mature.
Matthew provided some major comic relief after our fun-filled day at the Magic Kingdom. We were just watching a movie and chilling out when he came out in these numbers. I think my Mom almost peed her pants. Me too.
We went to the Animal Kingdom today. That place is so cool. Gabe is being so brave on this trip—he’s usually my chicken. He even went on Expedition Everest which is quite a big ride. He was so proud of himself. We also went on another bigger roller coaster that both he and Olivia loved. It’s so fun to watch her scream at the top of her lungs.
We managed to snag a great spot along the parade route. Olivia absolutely freaks out over her favorite characters which makes the parades really fun to watch. See her arms up in fists in the collage? That’s her shouting “YES!” when Mickey finally came out. Priceless.
And last, but definitely not least, we come back to the hotel and swim at the end of each day. We are seriously melting down here people. They said on the news it felt like 107 degrees here today. We felt every single degree I’m telling ya! Matthew continues to blow me away with his newfound swimming skills. To think that at the beginning of the summer he wouldn’t even put his face in…and now he’s jumping in and swimming with out a lifejacket! Awesome.
Gabe is still a fish and we practically have to drag him out of the pool to go to bed. And Olivia has been cracking us up in the hot tub/whirlpool. She dives in and it pushes her around and around in a circle. It’s quite funny.
So go ahead and call me Sparky or Clark. We’re all having a great time!
