What a trip! Be warned, more pictures than words!

 I've decided that a non-stop, constant go go vacation is what God made this family for!!  We had a blast!!  From the moment we entered the Magic Kingdom until the moment we collapsed in our beds on the last night!
 We threw caution (and our routine) to the wind, and went in with a very optimistic mind set - we were going to have fun!!  And we did!!  (of course, throwing our schedule out the door almost killed my minor OCDness; but after a day I noticed I was the only one who minded so I let go)
 Stephen of course was a big help......... haha
 I think the twins inherited my people watching disease and just enjoyed the cool air and the people, ahh the people!
We hit the parks running, we moved from one ride to the next - and loved every moment!!
I'd like to take a brief break to mention this shirt was purchased b/c Abby had gone through two other outfits already on day 1!  She just really wanted a Mickey Mouse shirt I guess!!
We had to make time to dine with our dear friends Goofy, Donald, and Minnie
Ohh Minnie, Abby loves her so.  It actually reminds me of my strange love of Donald Duck - which was reignited when he approached our table at breakfast - soooo oddd, and yet so cute!
After a wonder day off at our resort where we rested up by swimming all day :)  We had to head over to Universal Studios!!  And of course - the Wonderful Wizarding World of Harry Potter
I'll be honest - we had an amazing time - but after the experience at Disney I felt that Universal had a lot missing!  The kids had fun, we had fun - but there just wasn't that Disney feeling. 
Now please note that Stephen and Abby are not ones to just fall asleep anywhere - this my friends is a sure sign of complete exhaustion!!  Ahhh, to me I would say these are signs of success!!
Lunch time nap for Minnie and her new best friend Abby
Cecilia not really into a nap, but more squinting at her daddy flashing his camera at her during a very exciting parade!
But of course like all things, this to must end :)  The trip was great, the kids loved it, and I even got to read a book!!  Dear Pioneer Woman, it was your book - I loved it, and I know you are not reading this :)
