Disney World 2011!

Every winter Brian gets a little restless at work and requests a vacation. Two years ago we went to Disney World in February, and last year we went to Washington DC. This year.. Yup, Disney again. Who could resist.. it is just 8 hours away!

So he sneakily turned it into a birthday present for me. Which was nice.
Brad was pretty excited about being in this new crazy place. And so so about riding the rides.

They weren't scary for him. He just sat and observed.

Brian and I opted for the "baby pass" on the big rides. I actually didn't mind riding alone at all. I found it funny to watch the families with little kids. My fave was riding the Tower of Terror because I had a 10 year old girl continually asking me if it was scary and if they had seat belts.

The best was dessert the first night! I take this to be my b-day surprise. Brian reserved seats for us at Disney's Fireworks and Desserts thingy. Basically you walk up to four huge carts full of desserts, grab a plate and stuff your face. They even had hot chocolate and milk!

This was my round 1. My faves ended up being the cannoli, the berry tart, and the chocolate strawberry.

Then we had awesome seats for the fireworks show! Tinkerbell flew right over our head.

I can't believe we got him to wear this hat all morning long.

 This was our only character experience. It went well, and Bradley was pretty excited to meet Goofy and Pluto. He would have been really really excited to meet Mickey, but we weren't up for that line. 

On Safari with Brad and Dad!! We saw hippos, rhinos, giraffes, and more!

Bradley really liked Toy Story Mania. Not because he could see the show, he liked the crazy ride and pulling the string on the gun. You could say it was more fun than a barrel of monkeys for sure.

Okay. So Bradley's all time favorite thing was..... The Honey I Shrunk the Kids land. Everything is huge- that is a huge dog's nose on the right there. It is sniffing Brad. We let him run wild with out any restraints. Too bad we didn't discover it till the end of the day on our last day! I guess we'll know for the future.
