The first ride we all actually got on was Living with the Land. Hope loved every second. have you ridden it? It is hands down the longest, most boring ride in the history of the world, but my child? LOVED it. Here are Noah and I learning about agriculture...
Nemo was also a big favorite with Hope.
We walked through all the different countries, deciding what to eat for lunch. Guess where we landed? AMERICA. No shock there, right?
We enjoyed the walk along the way. We found Donald...
Played the drums....
(Definitely a highlight for Noah Red!)
And... We spotted our first PRINCESS!!!
People, it was like straight out of a Disney World commercial magical. There was no line, she was just standing there! Hope ran up, and Snow White was per.fect. Girl was awesome. I might have teared up, I'm just sayin'. Hope's Mimi made her an awesome autograph book, and Snow White loved finding her picture to sign by. She asked Hope who made it, and Hope told her, "Mimi." Snow White said, "Oh, is Mimi a Queen?" Hope loved that!
This little man was awesome on Day 1.
We went to watch Honey I Shrunk the Audience. Hope was nooooot pleased. We also watched Turtle talk with crush. I have a clip that I have got to learn how to get onto the computer. Crush talked to Hope! He said, "Who's that little dudette with the bright blond fur on her noggin?" They brought the mic to Hope, and she told him her name. Then he asked her to say, "Totally Sweet Dude!" She did. It was so fun.
Hope's favorite things of the day when asked:
1.Seeing Donald and Snow White
2. Taking a picture in a sharks mouth
3. The pixie dust on the ground at night
This was the scene in our hotel room that night...
Life is good!

"Before everything went wrong. Noah made it here, but we aren't sure we are going to bring him back. He screamed all but 30 minutes. " Of course I was kidding.
Here are Daddy and Hope on the plane:The only peaceful 30 minutes on the plane. Please notice that by this point, I have "the crazy eyes!"
We made it to the hotel, and we were ALL completely frazzled. Our bags didn't get picked up by the hotel, we lugged them and babies (WITH NO STROLLER) through the Orlando airport to our hotel bus. First step, buy a stroller. They sold umbrella strollers in the hotel gift shop. I do not even want to tell you what an umbrella stroller costs in a Disney hotel gift shop. Not to mention two. But, the problem was solved:
We ate and got back to the room to settle down. John was wise enough to go to the poolside bar and bring me back one of these. It helped.
Thankfully, things were just absolutely perfect after Day Zero.

Most of the cousins... (Miss you, Wade!)
Comparing the loot
Noah is a terrible Easter Egg hunter. After his first hunt, he figured out that good things are inside those eggs, so this is egg hunting Noah style (no basket needed.) First you find the closest egg. Open it. Stop and eat whatever is in the egg. Throw the empty egg on the ground. Find the next closest egg and repeat the process. This morning, Hope just took his basket and filled it for him after we told her she had enough!
