Disney pictures. Why is it taking me so long to post these darn Disney pictures?! There are just so many of them, I guess. Here are a few. Our first day was at the Magic Kingdom where the kids loved the "It's a Small World" ride - even Caroline!
There was a little person in our entourage, however, who was not big on the lines, though.
Do you see this look? I get it all the time. Only me. No one else in the world is given this look of death but me. Why me?
I much prefer Teddy's silly little boy look. Caroline held up very well at Disney! She's such a good baby!
Kevin took on the challenge of the unofficial "Around the World" drinking game. One drink in each country, and there are how many countries represented at Epcot? 10 or 12? Well, it was a FAIL. (Thank God!) He had fun trying, though. George had fun looking at our map and announcing which country was next along the way, and asking us what type of drink daddy would have there. Proud parenting moments at Disney, let me tell you! See George with the map? He studied it the entire day. There's something educational in that, right? Don't answer that.

(See how it looks like the fountain is pouring into the cup? Aren't I just so clever?)
Kevin in Norway:
(Kevin is getting stabbed in the back here. Okay, I'll stop.)

Kevin in Japan:
Kevin in Morocco:
And finally Kevin in France:
Can you tell by the smile he is getting tired of the game?
He was so over it.
Two more countries to go . . . next time, there's always next time.
Okay, so we did do other things besides drink and take pictures of drinking. We also took lots of pictures with the characters. The boys were tongue tied each time we saw one, but Caroline LOVED Snow White. Her first princess. You would have thought that Caroline had been reading Snow White forever. She wouldn't take her eyes off her. It was so cute!

The boys got their faces painted. Teddy's design choice was a no-brainer.
The boys at Norway.
Kevin wanted me to go in there and tell the Norwegian employees that I was also Norwegian. I declined and he kept at it, "Erica, go in there! Tell them!" I was like, "Tell them what? 'Hi, I'm Norwegian. But all I know is that I love kringla and lefsa and I use the word uffda at least once a week. Oh, and by the way, is 'uffda' really even Norwegian?'" I knew I would have been crushed if they didn't know what I was talking about. I mean, even the kringla they sold had almonds and a glaze on top. KRINGLA SHOULD NOT HAVE ALMONDS AND A GLAZE! What kind of Norwegians were these people anyway? Apparently not real ones. So no, I did not go inside and announce that I was, in fact, an actual Norwegian.

The day we visited Animal Kingdom it was very hot and very crowded. I have only a few pictures. Kevin's cousin Allyson and her family live nearby and met up with us there. They gave us the insider's tour, which was great. The boys got on all the best rides and quickly got through the lines. We saw a few animals, but honestly, the Pittsburgh Zoo is better! I am glad we saw it, though, and because of the rides the boys probably enjoyed this park the most.
All in all it was a great trip! We can't wait to go back again!
