We're Back!

We just got home from the best vacation EVER! Every two years my whole family goes to Disney World. We haven't been able to go in a few years, but this year we were able to take Jackson.

 We took two days to get there and drove straight home on the way back. Jackson did AMAZING on the drive. I attribute part of that to my niece Carley who sat in the back seat and entertained him the whole way. 

Jackson is a huge fan of Mickey Mouse. He has watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse from the time he was only a few months old. I couldn't wait to take him to see the real live Mickey. The first thing we did on Sunday was go to a character breakfast. We went to the Ohana restaurant in the Polynesian Hotel. We weren't staying on Disney property, but right across the freeway.

J loved Mickey so much!  He just didn't understand why he had to wait to see them. Patience was definitely something we had to start learning on this trip.

After the character breakfast we spent the morning at Animal Kingdom. We rode Expedition Everest a few times each and then went over to meet Mickey again!

We rode the dinosaur ride while Daddy was on a roller coaster!

Oh Minnie
We didn't do the safari because it was just too hot and we weren't sure how Jackson would do. He fell asleep in the car on the way home though :-)

That afternoon Jordan and I went to Hollywood Studios to ride a few roller coasters

On Monday it was time to go to...


He's all ready with his backpack and autograph book

Watching the opening ceremony

We left for lunch and a nap and then came back to watch the light parade.

The next few days we spent at Universal Studios.
He loved playing in Dr. Seuss world

The rest of the week we played at the pool

We also went to the beach.
Jackson loved the water...

and hated the sand...

So mad
We had such a great trip. Jackson was pretty easy going the whole trip. He had so much fun playing with all his cousins. Jordan and I got to go out to eat and do some shopping too. This was the best vacation we've ever been on. I can't wait to take him back in another two years. 

Congrats for making it all the way through this long post with all the pics :-) I'm hoping to get back on track with my WILWs and Fat Off Fridays this week. Stay tuned!
