Summer Field Trips

Coming back from a long vacation did not slow us down!! As soon as we got back in town the girls and I (poor Daddy always has to work) headed out for some more fun field trips.  We took a tour of the Watertown Fire Department and learned about Fire Safety.  All the Fire Fighters were super sweet to the kids and let them get into the truck and try on the uniforms. We had so much fun!!

We also went strawberry picking! I planned on only getting a pound or two, but we ended up with almost 10 pounds! Rebekah's bucket was full but Aubrey was a lot more picky about the quality of strawberries she picked, and only ended up with about 20 strawberries total.  I think the girls liked the tractor trip almost as much as picking the strawberries! Another great way to spend a summer afternoon!

Last Day at Disney World

I know these are up so slow, and now I have tons of other things to blog about, but we are preparing to move (next week) and my computer has been a little slow. Anyway...

We spent the last day of our vacation at Magic Kingdom. We got there for the opening ceremony and were one of the last out! It was a beautiful day.  We were there so early we conquered all of Adventure Land and Frontier Land before 10:00 am!  Since we had already done Fantasy Land and Tomorrow land a couple of days earlier, we were ale to relax and really enjoy ourselves.  Aubrey was a dare devil and rode Splash Mountain 4 times!!! The best part was the Spectromagic  Parade and the Fireworks show. Watching the castle change colors almost brought tears to my eyes!! We are honestly thinking of moving to Florida so we could be closer to Disney....I am so happy I married a fellow Disney Dork!!  Here are some pictures from our last day!

Disney World Vacation Part 4

Animal Kingdom!
This park is beautiful! Its kind of like visiting a zoo but with lots of great attractions! But the best part of this park were the shows. We watched a stage production of Finding Nemo that was AMAZING and another, Festival of the Lion King, that had sky dancers, stilt walkers, and fire jugglers. The girls were even picked to dance on stage!!
The big ride here is Expedition Everest. Aubrey was too short to ride it so I went by myself. It was so much fun and at one point goes backwards in the dark!! Aubrey was tall enough to ride Kali River Rapids, and rode once with Rolland and didn't get wet at all, and once with me where we both got soaked!! Rebekah had fun spraying the riders from the bridge above. There was a button that activated a spray that got all the people so wet. She thought that was hilarious!
The Safari was awesome. And we were so close to the animals. The only one that was hard to see was the lion because he was sleeping up on his rock!
This park closed at 5:00pm (which was nice to be forced to have an early day!) but that was still plenty of time to see everything! We loved the rides and learning about the animals. If you want a relaxing place to take kids Animal Kingdom is definitely it! Enjoy the rest of the pictures!
