Spring Is Busting Out All Over FIT!!!!...We Are Home From Disney....Disney Photos (indulge me:)

Spring has sprung officially in our town and I am FINALLY in the mood for it! The FIT for today is a beautiful colorized photo from the 30's or 40's. It is perfect for your Spring arting. We are home from Disney happy and tired. I have lots of photos to share with you when I get some time to post more. I just wanted to get the FIT up before it was a FIW:) I have missed you all and hope that you are all having some Spring too:) Love, Jamie
Ok. I am all unpacked!! Yeah! Here are some (about 1% LOL!!) of the photos from Disney World. It was a PERFECT vacation and we all had a fabulous time. My husband is a total nut and ordered ALL the Photo Pass pictures. (Disney has professional photographers at all the big attractions and character meetings to take your photo. Then they scan a little card and when you get home you can download them from the computer. For a price. Very slick, that Disney. They think of everything:) He says, "Their first trip is Once in a lifetime, Right?" Ok, Happy Boy, step AWAY from the computer. He must be still flyin' high on Disney Magic:) These photos are a combination of ones we took and ones from Photo Pass.
This is the inside lobby of the Animal Kingdom Villas where we stayed. It was so cool and we could see animals right outside from our balcony! They even had an animal check list with descriptions and pictures of all the animals you might see outside. We checked off ostriches, giraffes, zebra, Roan antelope, blesboks, Ankole cattle, Nyalas, wildebeest, East African Crowned Cranes and eastern White Pelicans. Oh, and a bunny. We made our own check box for the bunny:) All without leaving the villa. TOTALLY cool!

David and James enjoyed the warm weather and the pool. Of course James (who LOVES the ladies) made lots of new friends! LOL!!!

We spent the day at the Animal Kingdom for David's birthday. He wore a hat that looked like a birthday cake and I do believe that every person who worked at Disney that we saw that day wished him a Happy Birthday. They really go out of their way to be helpful and sweet there. He had a blast!

Here are the boys meeting Mickey for the first time. They got autographs from all the characters during the week. I know that James really believes in his heart that they are real. Swoon!

This is us in front of Expedition Everest which is a huge roller coaster in the Animal Kingdom park. David and my husband rode it first thing that morning and it was very foggy and cool looking. I did not ride it. NO.

James was chosen for Jedi training in front of the Star Wars ride in the MGM Hollywood Studios park. Really BIG deal and I know he got in because his father was yelling so loud for them to pick him! LOL!!!! Ok. First, I have never seen him so serious and proud. Second, I want to be a Jedi if that guy is going to teach me! LOL!! After they learned their Jedi moves then Darth Vader came out and they all got to fight him with their light sabers. HOW COOL IS THAT? That Darth Vader was about 7 feet tall and really scary and James fought him like a true Jedi. It was AWESOME!!

And finally this is James in the Magic Kingdom. They asked him to hold out his hands when they took his picture and then when we downloaded the photos yesterday they had put Tinkerbell in his hands. Magic. (I put the frame around him.)
Disney really is a Magical place. Seeing it through the boys' eyes was so wonderful. Having my Mom there was extra special. I don't think I have ever smiled so much. Ever.
