I had a snafu with our fastpasses to meet Anna and Elsa.  So Grace and I woke up super early for Extra Magic Hours, and headed off the to MK to be one of the first in line for the princesses.  We had a blast and it was so fun sharing that special time with her!

Our Disney World Vacation–Part 1

This year, we took our greatly anticipated family vacation to Disney World!  It was the kids’ very first visit, and we planned for over a year to make it the best it could possibly be.  We were joined by my mom, dad, sister and aunt! We had an amazing time…get ready for picture overload!!!

We stayed at the awesome Art of Animation resort in a Finding Nemo suite.  The theming of this resort is amazing!  The kids loved it.
