Cupcakes and new neighbors

We invited our new neighbors over for Halloween snacks and to decorate alien cupcakes. It is perfect since both boys are the same age as Hanna & Haley. Lucas is Hanna's age and even shares a December birthday with her and Cooper is just 2 months younger than Haley. They love the "boys" as they call them. They are so cute and such sweet little boys. AND they even go to the same two schools! We are going to start carpooling since I am all about making my life easier right now!

They ran and chased and was good for H & H to have friends over as they miss their AR friends so much!

Magic Kingdom

Hanna & Haley at Disney World for the first time!!!
I love this family pic in front of the castle.......too bad
Jason is pointing.
We saw an amazing street parade after being there
only 30 minutes. It's pretty overwhelming at first as you
want to make sure you get to everything! But first things first,
stop hunger pangs.
Woody and Jessie got off the float and danced in the street.
Even though it was October it was still in the high 80's......
I certainly felt pity on the poor folks dressed up in costume.
We got our picture with pirate Goofy. Not a particular
favorite but he was there none the less.
Goofy thought it would be funny to grab my head and plant a
"kiss". I didn't think it was very funny and it didn't feel the greatest.
Hanna with Daddy on Dumbo! I guess the sun was in her eyes??
Hanna's 1st roller coaster! Jason and I got to ride on the Barnstormer with Hanna
while Mimi sat with Haley. Luckily, we didn't have to wait in any long lines all day!
I got so tickled at Hanna as she really started screaming as the coaster took off.
I guess for a 4 1/2 yr old it would seem pretty scary. She probably won't step foot on another
coaster for several years to come.

What a magical place!!! Around every corner there is something new and exciting.
I think our first trip to Disney with the girls was a huge success! We left with lots of
fun treats and ate lots of yumminess! We can't wait to come back in a few years
for a totally different experience!

Sea World

We're off to see Shamu!

Hanna & Haley LOVED the dolphin show.
Shamu just had a new baby a few weeks prior
so we got to see her swimming around with the new
baby. It was sooooooo cute! I didn't take a picture of that.
We rode the ocean carousel.
There were some pretty scary ocean creatures on this carousel.
It's amazing to me what kids will sit on to go round and round
in a circle.
They had the park decorated for Halloween and we loved
these pumpkins!
We rode the spinning squids. Nothing too exciting but
the girls seemed to like it. I didn't realize what all Sea World had to offer. It has
been so long since I was last there and I'm sure it has changed a ton!
We saw penguins, turtles, manatees, polar bears, dolphins, whales, sea lions & otters,
a walrus, any kind of fish you can think of, sharks, sting rays..........
The girls had a blast and both said their favorite part was the dolphin show.
I have to agree.

At the beach!

Looking for sea shells the first day.
Haley didn't quite know what to think about the ocean. She wasn't very trusting.
Hanna loved walking up and down the beach to look for treasures.
At this point Haley wanted to be carried mostly.

She started warming up a bit after getting into her
bathing suit and digging in the sand.
I love Haley's stance here! She thought she was a goner for sure.
Sweet little piggy tales!
The "H" triplets.
Haley loved asking us to fill her bucket with water.
By the end of the week she would at least attempt it on her own.

Hanna LOVED the beach this time around.
The last time she was at the beach she was only 22 months and
didn't care for it much.
Testing the waters. Still a little unsure.
I think this wave took Haley by surprise and knocked her down.
We had so much fun and desperately needed a vacay!!! It was great having my Mom
with us as Jason and I were able to get a little alone time on the beach. She
was a great help and the girls loved having her there. We couldn't have asked for better weather!
Hopefully we'll see you again real soon beach!
