Waiting for the parade to start. Because of it being so packed there, we didn't run into any of the princesses or Mickey or Minnie or anyone else wandering around the park so at least they got to see all of them here. I was kinda bummed not to get any pics with them though. Next trip...
Hard to see, but Kendal got high fived by one of Santa's reindeer. She was soooo excited about that. It even made Papa tear up a little! He's a softy afterall!! :)
Couldn't leave without getting the "Mickey" ears with their names. Although it's no longer just the standard black ears like it was when I was a kid. Now they have them in all sorts of different colors and styles, they light up and flash and blink. It's crazy! The picking out process took FOREVER!!! One would have their choice, but would change their mind by the time another one had picked theirs. After about 30 minutes, I finally told them that they had to pick one NOW or I was going to pick for them. You can see what they chose, good choices, I think!
The rest of the family had taken off back to the hotel, but there were a few more things that we wanted to do. Like ride the monorail. We got to ride in the very front with the "captain" on the first trip. The girls thought that was just way cool!! On the second trip, we were with the rest of the commoners. :)
The lights in a tunnel of the monorail. I thought it made a neat pic.
They had been begging for ice cream all day so we told them we would get some before we left. It was a great and yummy way to end the day!! They all zonked out in the car back to the hotel, which was only about a mile away, and went straight to bed. Clothes and all....I was thankful that it was a hotel bed and not their beds at home. :)
We had a fabulous day! Thanks Grandma and Papa, we love you!!!
