Disney World 2010

We joined my parents in Disney World this year for Ellie and Emerson’s first trip there. Ellie has been SOOO excited to go, and we were so excited to see it through her precious little eyes. I’ll try to limit this to the best photos since we took a bunch!

On the plane! Emerson did so great in my lap. I thought that might be a struggle, but she did very well.

Our first character greeting. Ellie was pretty happy, but Emerson needed a little warming up. After this, she was golden, though.

Ellie’s puppy dog. She wanted her face painted SOOOO bad, so we did. They she wiped it off within 2 hours! That’s why she looks so crazy in the photos that follow. Not to mention that it was raining really hard and we were all soaked.

Ellie was so brave – She rode everything! She even did the Tower of Terror! (She didn’t love that one, but she was still brave!)

We had a great time. Thanks to Mom and Dad for sharing their condo with us all week! We can’t wait to go again with the Cornwells next year!
