All fifteen of us (except Patrick) flew down on the same airplane to Orlando. We were a bit of a circus on the way there (mostly Henry!) but we survived.
We got there late at night and by the time we rented our cars and made it to the house, it was almost 2AM. A few of the kiddos were wired, and a few of them zonked out in the car. So we slept in the next day and then headed to The Animal Kingdom around noon.
First up was a cool bird show, with the best seat in the house (grandpa's lap).
But Emme thought she had died and gone to heaven.
One day when it started to rain later in the afternoon, I took the kiddos back home to the house with Stan and Chris and Kathryn stayed and rode rides together. It was like a mommy son date. Chris took this selfie of them on main street together.
My twinner Ariel girls. Emme had a special Disney outfit for almost every day we were there.
Emme and Aurora at the lego store.
Visiting Mickey on Main Street. He talks & interacts with you! It was so neat. I love Preston's reaction in this photo.
Visiting Ariel. It took us two tries through the line to get to see her. The first time we got almost to the front and then Emme had to go to the bathroom RIGHT THEN so we had to hop out of line. Sadness. And it was a shame because she was wearing her Ariel getup that day! The next day we tried again and I made Emme go potty BEFORE we got in line to see her. :)
This is how just about every day ended in the car on the way home...
On the flight home. The only place Henry would only ever sit still on the airplane was on Grandpa's lap.
