Disney Once More

A week ago last Monday, we decided to go to Disney World for the day and let Mattie bring her friend Eden along, (since they're still free and all)! We got into the Magic Kingdom at around noon. There was a very large group of people standing near the entrance and swarming Main Street. We thought this was strange, because there are not usually parades at this time of day, in this area of the park. It only took us a couple of minutes to figure out why everyone was standing around. All of a sudden there was a really loud noise and we saw jets flying in formation over Disney! It was the Thunderbirds. They are the Air Demonstration Squadron of the US Air Force. We had no idea that they were going to be there that day. Walt Disney World is celebrating its "Year of a Million Dreams", and the Thunderbirds were there to help them on April 7th. Matt quickly got the camera out to video one of the fly-overs. It was so awesome to see these beautiful jets fly down Main Street USA.

We spent a fun-filled day with the 2 year old girls, going on rides and playing and having a grand 'ole time. Blah, blah, blah... I can continue and tell you all about the rides we went on with both 2 year olds, or I can just skip to the best part, which happened at the very end of our day. So, that's what I am going to do! At around 6:30pm, we took the girls on a ride called the People Mover, so that they would fall asleep for a quick nap. After a little nap, they woke up and were ready to go on the Buzz Lightyear ride. It was a little difficult getting Mattie to wake up after only sleeping for about 20 minutes, but she finally came around right as she was getting on the ride with Matthew. When we finished the ride, we took the girls over to the photo op area, to get a picture of them behind bars with the Evil Emperor Zurg. The girls went behind the bars, and Matt was getting ready to take the picture, when I noticed that Mattie had stood up on her tip-toes. I was wondering what she was doing, when all of a sudden I see pee coming out! As she's peeing she says, "I gotta go pee pee." I grabbed her and said, "Stop." I picked her up and ran her to the bathroom. She finished doing her business, while Matt and Eden let the workers know about the puddle by Zurg. Now mind you Mattie has been potty trained for months, and she never has accidents, so I did not have a change of clothes for her. Luckily Eden's mom had packed a change of clothes for Eden. When we finally got the girls settled down in the stroller and having a snack, Matt and I starting discussing what had just happened. I was way bummed, because I really thought that the picture would have been a cute one of them together smiling as best buds. Matt took the camera out, and said that maybe he was able to snap one before the chaos. What we saw brought us to tears of laughter. There in the photo was Eden smiling beautifully and Mattie standing on her tip-toes with pee coming down! We couldn't believe it. You can actually see the pee! Needless to say all was forgiven when we saw the photo.

The day was a fun one. It started out phenomenal and ended hilarious. We had a great time with Mattie and Eden, and can't wait for our next big adventure at Disney World.

That is hilarious! Poor thing. She was proabaly having so much fun she didn't want to take the time to go to the bathroom. That picture is great!!! It made me laugh so hard. Hey well at least she'd potty trained, Addy still doesn't have much interest. Any tips? How fun that you guys live in florida and can go do things like that! I want to take Addy to disneyland/disneyworld one of these days!

Ooooh, I love jets flying overhead. And the picture of Mattie peeing is SO funny! That's definitely a keeper to look back and laugh about.

Can't wait to show my kids (esp. my boys) this post--they'll be laughing their heads off. Maybe Mattie can potty train Izzie this summer. She's a fence-sitter and it drives me crazy. Fun Disney days--you guys are addicted I think.

Oh--can you use your disney world passes at disneyland? We MIGHT get the CA res. passes cause they're the price of 2 tickets right now----totally worth it. You'll have to use your bennies and come out--unless, of course, Disneyland is lame for you compared to DW.

Kelly just rushed into the office to see if I was OK - I was laughing so hard that I couldn't breath. I showed him the ENLARGED tinkle photo and he started laughing and said, Now, that's a keeper."
