For both your sanity and my own, I’ll only post a couple of these character encounter pictures. (No need to thank me.) As you can see, Em wasn’t afraid to get right on up in their faces and give them a big ol’ “HELLO!”
Apart from a few hiccups that are to be expected with toddlers doing a full-scale, non-stop vacation of this magnitude, we were amazed by how smoothly the entire week went. We totally recommend Walt Disney World to families with toddlers after watching our wee ones just get completely caught up in the excitement of nearly every moment. They were absolutely thrilled, which absolutely thrilled us. On the shuttle ride back to the airport Friday night, Ana watched the farewell video, turned to Wes, and said, loud enough for the whole bus to hear her, “We come back soon, Papa!” Indeed.
We’re getting back to our regularly scheduled lives now, which includes a mountain of really sweaty laundry (ick), regular work hours for Wes (ick), and serious potty training (ICK). Ana remembered that she would be wearing panties post-Disney, and she greeted me this morning with a package of them in hand. She still hasn’t connected that panties mean using the potty on a regular basis, but I’m sure we’ll figure it out after a couple of (hundred) accidents. She’s ready. I’m ready. It’s time.
For those of you who want to see more vacation pictures, I’ve uploaded some onto Xanga. For those of you who want to see more than that, I’ve uploaded some onto Facebook. And for those of you who want to see even more… well, I can’t imagine why you would want to see all 271 pictures that we took, but send me your email address and I’ll send you the link. Don’t say I didn’t warn you about how many there are!
Hope your weekend is going well…
