Our Disney Vacation!

I think it is fair to say that our two little girls had a BLAST this past week on their 1st trip to Disney! We pretty much went non-stop the whole time we were there and Ella and Emeri were little troopers! The only naps to be had were while they were riding along in the stroller! We saw a ton of characters and got a lot of autographs! We took even more pictures (471 to be exact!) so it was a little hard to narrow it down, but here are a highlights from our trip!

Emeri and Daddy on Aladdin's Magic Carpet Ride! Emeri loved all the rides! And to think we were a little worried that she might not be old enought to enjoy the trip! Boy were we wrong!

Breakfast at CHEF MICKEY'S!

Ella and Emeri got a lot of signatures in their autograph book this morning! We had breakfast with Mickey, Donald, Goofy, Pluto and of course, Minnie!

We visited all 4 of the parks including Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios! Magic Kingdom was the favorite! Ella rode her first rollercoaster (2 times!)

Ella was selected out of the audience to be a part of the "Festival of the Lion King" show at Animal Kingdom! If I hadn't lost my camera on our last night I could show you the video :(

Picture time!

Emeri loved this hat and would not take it off!

Fun on Cinderella's Carousel!

Characters Everywhere!
The girls got to meet so many of their favorite characters! They got autographs from Ariel, Handy Manny, Chip and Dale, JoJo and Goliath, Pocahontas, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Jasmine, Snow White and many more! Emeri was not sure about the characters (I had to hold her in most of the pictures!)
Ella and Ariel!!

Cheese! No, Ella the shark is not real! :)

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
One of the highlights of Ella's trip was her makeover at Cinderella's Castle! (You have to be 3 years old, so maybe next time Emeri can get one!) After the makeover, Ella asked me "Are people going to think I'm the real Cinderella?" :)
My little Tinkerbell sure looked pretty cute, though!
Ella and her very own Prince Charming!

Breakfast at Cinderella's Royal Table
All of the Princesses in one place makes for a little girls dreams to come true!!

We had a great vacation! By the afternoon of our last day we were all exhausted and when we asked Ella what she wanted to do, her reply was "Please let's just go to the pool!" We thought that sounded pretty good too!
