Ridin' Around the Kingdom

My girls have never been to an amusement park. We took Sissy to Six Flags when she was 2 but obviously she can't remember it. Sweet Baby and Peanut weren't too excited for any ride that had any speed at all to it. (However, they rode Soarin' which made you feel like you were flying over trees and water). Here is a picture of the girls and I on the Mad Tea Cups ride. Sissy wanted to spin us like crazy but the other two weren't to fond of that!

One of the rides that Sweet Baby had talked about ever since we started planning this trip, was the Dumbo ride. She loves elephants and especially loves Dumbo. Do you know how hard it is to find Dumbo on anything? Even at Disney World! I NEVER did find a t-shirt with him on it! Anyway, daddy took her on Dumbo so mom could take a photo! She almost backed out but when mom reminded her that she enjoyed the Flying Carpet ride with Aladdin, she jumped on and loved it.

Sissy is a lot like her dad and I. She LOVED the rides. So much so, that she skipped waiting in line to see certain characters just so dad could take her on more rides! She rode the Tower of Terror 2 times, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and her favorite.....Mt. Everest (at Animal Kingdom). We lost count how many times we rode that one! It doesn't go upside down but has a doosey of a drop and does go backward! Here is a picture of her and one of the boys we traveled with (you can see Mt. Everest looming in the background). We were lucky enough to travel with another home schooling family, some dear friends from church. After spending 10 days with each other, we've become much closer I think!
