Big Adventure - Day 3

The next morning, we were all wiped to say the least. Pops decided we should take it easy and head to the resort's water park. So, into to the mini we went. After everyone was attacked by a lady forcing a wist band on our arms, we headed for the H2O. Bubbie, our ever fearless leader decided to demonstrate how fun the pool could be, so he dove right on into the lazy river and began to float on down, completely submerged under the current. Thankfully, Dad was nearby and managed to drop his belonging and dive in after him. Well, at least that ended his "fearless" behavior early on in the day. I was walking with my arms full and a twin on each hand when Big E decides to take off and show us what he could do. Within two minutes of Caleb's dive, Big E pulled away and did the same thing. Fortunately, a kind woman was watching the whole thing and dove in and pulled him out. Less than five minutes in the water park and two near-death experiences...another exciting day ahead!

A pleasant afternoon awaited at the Magic Kingdom. Since the twins had taken a good nap, we decided to go ahead and give it a try. We had a blast! We visited Minnie and Mickey's homes. The big kids rode their first roller coaster, the Barnstormer, with mom and dad. They weren't very happy about it, but mom and dad had fun! The little guys got to run around at several "energy depletion zone" areas including Christopher Robin's Hundred Acre Woods. We rode a lot of kiddie rides which were pretty relaxing. It's a Small World, Dumbo, the Cinderella carousel, and Peter Pan were some of our favorites. The kids really enjoyed meeting the characters and getting their autographs. We got to meet Belle, Aurora, Mickey, Frozone, and a couple of others. We were having such a good time we just stayed and watched the incredibly beautiful fireworks show! It was amazing to say the least. So much fun!!
