All sorts of catch up and Picture Overload!

Jun 17, 2013

Wow!!! First of all... Em, you are amazing!  Now that I'm back from vacation, I need to get to work.  :)

So.... this is what I (Maria) have been up to since we let out of school.  My sweet oldest asked me today when we have to start going back to school a lot. Seriously? 

 I've been at a lot of softball and t-ball games.  We've been spending a lot of time at Kings Island.  My girls LOVE it!!!  I made end of the year gifts for our oldest's teacher and babysitter. We would not have made it through this year without these ladies and their love and care for our girl. 

Then, I had to get ready to visit the happiest place on earth!  :)  I did this, of course pinterest inspired.......

 All my girls clothes laid out for the week... Sunday through Thursday, extras, long sleeves, swimsuits, pants (just in case).  I put all three girls clothes for each day in one Ziplock bag and labeled it.  It made each day so.much.easier.  I put all these bags, my clothes, our shoes, shower stuff, everything else needed in this bag.....
Yes... everything for four girls!  In one bag!  I highly suggest the Ziplock thing.  It helped immensely!!!! 

Then we headed off and drove all night long to end up here.....

After hearing this question a bagillion times!

 We were so excited and saw so many AMAZING characters!  We did the four day hopper pass and our youngest was FREE because she's still 2, so that saved a little money.  :)  We also packed lunches, snacks, and drinks.  They did check your bags at each park which was annoying to get the bag out of the bottom of the stroller, but each checker was super nice as was just about everyone we met at each park! 
My girls LOVED every minute of each park! So did I, except that our youngest turned into something like this
 every afternoon until I could find someplace cold and dark.  Then, she looked like this....

 Sweet angel.  Here were some of my our favorites. 


 We also met these amazing and beautiful princesses.  Thank goodness for the fastpasses because the wait to meet the bottom three was 90 MINUTES!!!!!  We waited about 15.  Whew!
 Ariel asked if anyone was a mermaid.  My girls said nothing, but my hand went in the air super fast!  I'm not afraid to admit that I am a mermaid wanna be, I mean look at her!  She's gorgeous.
 Merida was amazing!  So sweet and precious. 

They said, three little girls come in each morning and braid Rapunzel's hair.  I asked if those three girls could come to my house and braid my three girls hair because sometimes just getting a brush through that stuff is a job in itself!
After some bribing convincing, our oldest rode the Tower of Terror with me!  She, um I, was VERY nervous.  I squeezed held her hand the whole ride and when she got off, she went on it again with my husband. Thank goodness for those fastpasses! 
Our youngest.... she just makes me laugh. This pic was taken under the big golf ball thing at Epcot.    She's so goofy.    
So... that's what we've been up to in my house. Do you ever feel that when you get home from vacation you need another vacation just to recoup?  That's where I am right now.  Needing to get more of this...... 


  1. Wow, I love the ziplock idea, it's hard to believe that you got all those clothes in that one bag! I took my daughter to Disneyworld when she was 6, I thought she might get scared riding the Tower of Terror, She still brings it up 4 years later that she wanted to ride it and I wouldn't let her. haha It looks like you had a wonderful time.
