7/52: Animal Kingdom

We went to Disney the first time shortly after Kaylie turned five.  Myla was too young to remember and was scared of almost everything. Since Myla was turning five this year we decided to skip the birthday party and purchase the Florida Resident three day deal.  This weekend we went to Animal Kingdom and it was Brynlee's turn to cry on almost every ride.  We had quite a bit of rain, but luckily missed the two big downpours.  We started out on the Safari ride and lucked out with a great view of the lions and lot of time with the giraffes.  Unfortunately, our favorite show from last time (Lion King) was shut down, but Finding Nemo was also one of our favorites and we really enjoyed that (except for Brynlee of course).  We also enjoyed a few more rides and some fantastic ice cream. We really got lucky with timing when we happened upon the end (insert: best part) of the parade and happened to be near where the Meet and Greet with Mickey and Minnie was that had no line due to the parade. We waited approximately 3 minutes, without FastPasses!

Glad we got a family pic before the rain.

Crazy Kaylie


This giraffe would not move. We were stuck for about 5 minutes.

A bunch of the other giraffes came over to see what was going on.

The baby came too!

Brynlee really liked this ride and loved seeing the animals.

Such a great view of the lions. Glad we went on this ride first!

Kaylie kept wandering off to look at stuff.

Brynlee was unimpressed with the lines.

Unless, she got to walk!

The girls were very excited about the mountain, but were too small to go on the coaster.

This was before she started crying and saying "Pass" over and over again (pacifier)

She didn't make it until lunch.

Perfect meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie!

Brynlee wouldn't give hugs or high-fives.


6/52: Myla turns 5!

I cannot believe that Myla is FIVE! Next year she will be in Kindergarten and I will have two school-aged children.  We had a little trouble getting a "party" together for her due to our busy schedules and a lot of friends and family being sick.  We eventually threw together some cupcakes and had her BFF Tessa over for a few minutes just to blow out candles and eat a cupcake. The girls proceeded to make messes of themselves.

Tessa picked out the presents for Myla

Hot pink Funfetti cupcakes!

She kept saying, "Momma, Bite!" She was trying to avoid getting frosting on her hands.

I made her just go for it though.

Tessa and Brynlee are starting to play with each other now.
Happy Birthday Myla Rae!


I have not been doing a very good job of keeping up with these blogs.  So, I'm not sure how long it will last. For now, I will try to make up for lost time. I'm not really positive that these pictures were taken in the correct week, but we'll go with it.  

She LOVES the swing.  Only child that consistently asks to swing even when she doesn't see it.

Such a pretty girl.

We have another nest in our tree.
Myla had space week at school and made a jetpack.

Kaylie had the idea and I had good luck with this shot.

I love it when the older girls play with Brynlee.
