Miles walked-8.8

The walk into the Magic Kingdom


Our fast pass to the Snow White ride wasn’t active yet so we headed over to Dumbo.  Mom said we had to ride it since the last time we went to LA it was being worked on .

We saw the evil step sisters but they took a break before we got to take a picture.  While we waited in lines Mom had pipe cleaners for us to play with.


Then the fairy god mother came out!

We had a fast pass to see Tiana and Rapunzel.  Most of the princesses signed Autumn’s cast

Can you pull the sword from the stone?

We also went on It’s a Small World.  That was a ride that wasn’t working in LA.  Look, they said goodbye to us!


Rapunzel’s tower


There was a parade as we were walking to Tommorowland.

This was from the Enchanted Stories with Belle.  We got to be a character in the story.

This was the Fantasyland Parade.  So many princesses in one place!

Dad took our picture in front of the castle.  Can you see us?


The glass slipper


Elena from Avalor and Cinderella!

Driving a car!  Mom said Autumn played bumper cars with the rail in the middle!

Miles walked-7.4

For Fall break we headed out to Orlando!  We got to the hotel kinda late so we just got unpacked and relaxed.  Our first park was Universal Studios.  This was where Mom really wanted to go.  She wanted to see the Harry Potter parks.  We started at the Universal Studio’s park and headed straight to King’s Cross.  The train ride was socool!

Just a quick pic at Honeydukes!


Then we headed to Ollivanders.  So many wands!  Autumn and I got to pick a magic wand.  I got a Hermione wand and Autumn picked her birthday wand.

Broomsticks in the store


We had to have a butterbeer.  We all shared a frozen one-it was yummy

img_2291 img_2288

We weren’t able to go on the castle ride because Autumn wasn’t quite tall enough.  Mom says we’ll go next time.


Practicing our spells along the way.


Then we headed to Seuss Landing


Thing 1 and Thing 2 with the Cat in the Hat!




And a ride on a crazy merry-go-round

img_2300 img_2301

Autumn skipped this ride because there was a chance she could get wet.  She didn’t want her cast to get wet.

img_2308 img_2312

We didn’t do much more at this park.  The other parts didn’t really interest us.  So we headed back to Diagon Alley.  

img_2314 img_2316

We chatted with the Knight Bus driver.

img_2317 img_2318 img_2321

This part was much more crowded and harder to practice our spells.  We had ice cream from Florean Fortescue’s Ice cream parlour and saw the dragon breathe fire.  The line for the Escape from Gringotts line was really long so we went to explore other areas.

img_2322 img_2323

We ran into a daytime parade.

img_2324 img_2326 img_2327 img_2329 img_2331 img_2332

And Megatron!


A ride in the Simpson’s area and a “police” picture for Matt!

  img_9586 img_9590

The minion ride was lots of fun too!


As we headed out of the park we took a picture at the sign and rode a wave in front of a store.

Mommy headed off to Chicago to watch Allie run in the marathon.  We stayed home with Daddy.  The day they flew out was the 1st game of the division series with the Giants and the Cubs.  Mommy, Diane, Allie, and Kevin went to the game.  First they started with dinner.  Did you know in Chicago they don’t put ketchup on their hot dogs?

img_9400 img_9403 img_9404 img_9408 img_9412 img_9413

They went on a Hop On, Hop Off bus tour of the city.

img_9415 img_9416

They hopped off at Navy Pier.


This was everyone trying to decide what pizza to order.


They ordered the pizza and went for a walk.

img_9423 img_9425 img_9427

A Chicago deep dish, thin crust and caramel/cheese popcorn.

img_9429 img_9431 img_9433 img_9434

Some more sights from the tour.

img_9435 img_9437 img_9472

Portillo’s has a chocolate cake shake.

img_9438 img_9440

Look at the chunks of cake in it!


Here was the chili dog Kevin tried.

img_9441 img_9442

Finally, marathon day!  Here comes Allie!
