M's Birthday at Disney

We went to WDW in the beginning of the month to celebrate a friend's birthday. We booked our cabin, packed the car, and met the gang at Animal Kingdom. It was FREEZING cold that day. Actually, it was so chilly that my monsters happily snuggled together in the single-rider stroller -- without fighting!

Tower of EXTREME Terror

Rea has wanted to ride the Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios for like the past 2 years. And even though she has been tall enough for over a year, we haven't let her. Shane and I told her that even though she met Disney's height requirement, she did not meet their age one. Rea has been under the impression that you have to be at least 5 to ride the ToT.

And she turned 5 in December. We said nothing of the ride, and her birthday trip (see that entry) was going to be at a different Park. She let us know that she was aware that she now met all of Disney's pre-reqs. It was just a matter of time before we were there with all the right people. That is: Jack, Steph and Shane. All 3 peeps wanted to be with her for her first (and possibly last) ride. It was pretty clear that I shouldn't go on it with her. Even though I love it, it terrifies me and I scream like a little girl the ENTIRE time. I could not even pretend to project enough bravado to calm Rea. Jack and Steph would have taken her alone, but Shane really wanted to go with his little girl.

A Magical Day for the Kids

The Magic Kingdom was the perfect place to meet up the rest of our massive crew. But first we had to get there.

Insert: Horseback Riding & Playground

I totally spaced on including more of the pics from the pony rides. We did this before dinner - for those of you who don't know, the pony rides are $5 per ride, and they are located at the Settlement.

Rea absolutely LOVES this. She goes for a ride almost every time we stay at the Campgrounds. The birthday girl and Ri wanted to do it this year.
