Disney World 2008

Well, it's confirmed... we are definitely crazy! Jason and I took the girls (yes, Adelaide and Lucy) to Disney World again this year. Adelaide went for the first time last September when she was almost 2 and Lucy was there too (I was 8 months pregnant) but she didn't get a good look at anything. Adelaide loved everything last year! The phrase of the week was "ride that." She wanted to do everything. We left early (often waking her up to go) and got back late with a short nap during the day and she was no worse for wear. This year... different story. You would think that Lucy would be the difficult McKeown on this trip since she was only 10 months old at the time, but not quite! Adelaide was suddenly scared of everything! The dark, loud noises, fireworks (sorry, she got that one from me)... you name it, it was scary. If it wasn't scary now, it was bound to get scary and soon! So, it made everything a bit more complex. Luckily, the characters were a hit, along with Dumbo and the carousel. If it was outside, it was ok.. just none of the indoor attractions. It's a small world... absolutely not! Way too creepy!!!
Lucy just hung out and went with it in typical Lucy fashion. Sleep in the stroller, eat, sleep in the stroller more, eat, get out for a ride, eat, you know... whatever. She's such a good baby!
So, the trip was a success overall. Adelaide had a blast aside from an occasional meltdown and she's still talking about it. And Lucy, well, she was there and we have pictures to prove it!
We had an awesome time as a family and Joel and Che` (our extended family).
We are so blessed and thankful for everything the Lord has given us. Our girls are everything to us and we are so fortunate that they are healthy and they fill our lives with such joy!
