Fun times at Disney

We had a great time on our family vacation to Disneyworld. October was a very nice time to visit, perfect weather, not too crowded.
The autograph book got lots of action - I don't know how they sign with those big heads and paws!
There was also lots of cousin bed wrestling and playing. It was fun to watch the three of them together.
We visited all four parks, which involved a little bit of Monorail riding and lots of Disney bus riding. Lachlan's new favorite song is "Wheels on the Bus". Lachlan rode on a few toddler-friendly rides every morning, but he enjoyed people watching and character watching just as much.
Every afternoon I brought him back to the hotel for a nap while everyone else kept riding rides, but it was an essential rest time to make it through dinner and a later bedtime. It worked out well, and I didn't mind the slower pace at all.
I was surprised that he was not afraid of the characters. Mickey Mouse was the only character that he knew and recognized before we went. When we got to meet Mickey, he wanted to give him a kiss and wanted to go back for more after our turn was over.
We picked out some Mickey ears, a t-shirt, and a Mickey Christmas ornament for souvenirs. Lachlan is loving wearing his "hat".
It was a lovely family vacation and a fun break from the every day. Disneyworld is truly like no other place on Earth. If you'd like to see more pictures from the trip, check out my Flickr set.
