Because sometimes when you have a hard day, a note from your child will make it all better.

Ethan becomes a Cub Scout!

When Ethan turned 8, he was able to join the Cub Scout program as a Wolf. I was his den co-leader for the first few months before I got moved up to be the co-leader of the Webeloes. He LOVES the Scout program, and thankfully he has really good, organized leaders who plan fun activities and makes sure he is completing all the activities he needs to get all the badges he needs. I can't believe that he'll be moving up to Bears in a few months!

Day 1 - Downtown Disney and Disney Quest

The first day of our Disney vacation, we spent at Downtown Disney visiting with family in friends who live in the Orlando area. We met my Aunt Wanda and Uncle Dale for lunch at the T-Rex Café. Uncle Jason let Ethan pick out his birthday present in Florida, and he chose a build-a-dinosaur at the T-Rex Café. We stayed in the Caribbean Beach Resort in one of the pirate themed rooms. It was a truly magical vacation!

Day 2 - Magic Kingdom

We spent the first day in the parks at Magic Kingdom. While we were eating lunch at the Crystal Palace, it started raining, and proceeded to pour rain for the rest of the afternoon. We just carried on through most of the afternoon until we were so water-logged we couldn't anymore. Thankfully, that was the only day of rain we had the week we were there!

Day 3 - Bippity Boppity Boutique and Breakfast at Ohana

Living out every little girl's (and big girl's!) dream...getting dressed up like a princess! Then we went to eat breakfast at Ohana in the Polynesian Resort with Lilo, Stitch, Mickey and friends. Then I went back to the hotel room and slept off my allergy medicine while David and Rebecca and the kids went to the parks.

Day 4 - Animal Kingdom

We were able to meet up with my cousin, Cory, and his family for dinner at Sanaa, an African food restaurant in the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was the most unique food we ate on the trip, and magnificent like everything else.
