Disney World- Day 3

We headed to MGM or Hollywood Studios as it is known now. Our first stop was to get the fast pass for the Toy Story Ride. It wasn't for another couple hours, so we decided to wait in line to go on it so we would get two chances at it. It said an hour wait, but thankfully it was only about 20 or so minutes and there is so much to look at on the way that it goes by very quickly. The ride was fun too. We got to play little games along the way shooting at targets. Nicholas loves to do this.
After the ride Joshua and Sophie wanted to meet Buzz and Woody so we stood in line to do that. Along the way were picture spots which helped to entertain the kids a little bit. Once it was our turn to meet them Joshua became shy again, of course, but he still went up there with me. Nicholas didn't really care to meet them.

Don't they look excited.

One of my favorite pictures. Such a geniune smile.

An executive decision was then made to just head back to the room to take naps/rests since it seemed all were getting grumpy and restless and we wanted to see the fireworks later that evening. So, on we went. We took the bus back over to Magic Kingdom to catch our bus back to the resort. While we waited Burt went and bought a few things for the kids and a birthday pin for me. I got many birthday wishes all day from strangers wearing this. Fun times.
Cool bus we had to ourselves almost.

Back at the room we got Sophie and Joshua to fall asleep and Brandon and Brittny took a little snooze too. I tried to, but then Zachary woke up. Burt took Nicholas and Christopher to the pool. They were going to try out the water slide, but apparently you have to know how to swim so no go there. After they tried out the pool/spa they headed back to play putt-putt and hit the playground. I think it was a good rest time for everyone, well, maybe everyone. Burt probably would have liked a nap himself. What a trooper.

Not too sure about the spa, so he is just chillin' instead.

The water combined with Christopher's life jacket pushed him around in circles. It was pretty cool and he thought it was very fun.

We then packed up to get ready to go back to Magic Kingdom for the evening. On the way in there was a show at the castle so we watched some of that. We then went to eat dinner, at the same restaurant we ate at a few years back. It is very kid friendly and entertained the kids while we ate. We then went on a couple of rides before finding our spot to watch the fireworks. We had a great view of them and everyone enjoyed watching the show. It was a very nice end to the day and fireworks for my birthday, very cool. We headed back to the room and got everyone asleep and then enjoyed a little adult time before passing out ourselves. It is hard to stay up late after long days and knowing the kids will be up bright and early to start the fun all over again, but we wanted to be able to chat and catch up too, so we did and it was well worth it.

He gets so focused.

Dinner time entertainment.

" Ha, ha, I got back here where I am not suppose to be and what are you going to do about it?"

Joshua was not happy we made him come back over.

Running out some energy. A benefit of it not being too crowded.

Cute pictures of the four kiddos in their matching shirts Brittny bought for them.

I'm outta here.

And then there were three.

Waiting for the fireworks to begin. We gave them lollipops so they would sit still for a second when it started to get crowded.

Almost firework time.
Attempt at a family picture in front of the castle. Zachary makes me laugh with his two fingers over his nose.

"Hey Christopher, aren't the fireworks cool!"

"Yes, yes they are."

Sweet little Zachary and me, the birthday gal. Too bad my birthday pin was not visible.

haha. I feel like I am putting way too much in mine. I am sure everyone is getting tired of looking at the pictures, but it is hard for me to narrow down. One more day to go.
