We spent a fun filled week in Florida! We left SLC on Thursday evening; our flight was 1 1/2 hours delayed, which is never fun when traveling with 2 kiddos. We landed in Orlando at 1 am. Somehow Izzy was still awake. She tried to fall asleep on the plane, but never could get comfortable. When we got in the van to take us to our hotel she had a meltdown because she wanted it to be a bus. But somehow we survived and she slept til 11 the next morning so it worked out.
On Friday we drove to Clearwater, which is where Mike played 2 years of junior college ball. There was a restaurant by our hotel, Bahama Breeze, that Mike said he always wanted to eat out but couldn't afford it because he was a poor college student. So we went there for dinner and it was pretty yummy and the prices weren't bad either.
On Saturday we met up with my parents and Celeste and Brandon at Magic Kingdom. Can you tell Izzy is excited? I wonder who she takes after?!
Only my mom could ride the tea cups, the rest of us get too dizzy. Of course, right when Izzy got on they broke and shut the ride down (they gave them fast passes to come back). She was crying until we told her we could go ride Ariel.
On Sunday we went to Universal Studios. They had some fun rides. The Harry Potter ride was probably the coolest ride I've ever been on and I've never read the books or the movies. The ride was just awesome.
Even with all the rides, Izzy still loves to just sit on the animals.
On Monday, Izzy went to the Bippity Boppity Boutique to dress up like a princess. She loved seeing Cinderella.
Sleeping Beauty has become her favorite princess. I think she likes the pink.
She wasn't too sure about what the lady was doing.
Such a cheeser!
Love my little princess!
Walking around with Papa. Right after this she watched the parade with all the princesses and LOVED it! So much we watched it the next day.
She didn't want to take her pink hair out.
On Tuesday we went to the Animal Kingdom. It was raining in the morning, so we weren't sure how long we would make it. This is Izzy on the safari ride. There were no waits anywhere so we rode lots of rides. This was probably her favorite day because of all the animals.
We had lunch at the Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. It was awesome because all the animals come to your table and take pictures with you, no lines to wait in!!
Izzy LOVED the lunch! They did a parade through the restaurant with all the animals and she was in heaven!
Grandma and Papa.
Riding the dinosaurs with Grandma.
She was not too interested in taking pictures, just figuring out how to make it go higher.
Rafiki was probably her favorite animal. She loves the Lion King, sings the theme song, and pretends to be the lions all the time. So glad she saw him.
Of course, there was a petting zoo at animal kingdom so we had to go there.
On Wednesday we went back to Magic Kingdom. Not sure how many days she rode the carousel. Seriously I could have just taken her to the Provo Beach Resort, no need for Disney World!
Riding Magic Carpet with Grandma.
Watching the parade for the second time.
She loved seeing Rapunzel's castle. She kept yelling for her to let down her hair.
Can't forget about Cambry. She was a champ the whole trip. At one point my parents asked if she ever cried. She just hung out in her stroller, was held, or slept. She was great!
Wednesday night we ate at Crystal Palace and all the Winnie the Pooh characters come around to each table. Such a fun dinner!
Love my girls.
Izzy making a sad face with Eeyore.
Winnie the Pooh was her favorite.
The whole gang.
So glad Celeste and Brandon joined us. Celeste had the magic touch with Cambry.
At the Orlando airport headed home. Of course, there was Disney stuff all over the airport.
One last picture before we head home. We had a great time. The flight home was great, both girls were awesome; they slept most of the flight. Thanks to my parents for arranging the accommodations!
