Disney World Trip

Unpacking after a move is way better than the packing part.  But I thought I would put it off a few more minutes and post some pictures from the last month.

At the All Star Music Resort

Squashing Serenity

When did she get so grown up?

Cadence did handstands all over the place.

At the Piano shaped pool.

The Guitar shaped pool.

Two snugly and wiped out girls.

Breakfast on our last morning.

My Serenity

Sing it with me.  C is for Cadence.  That's good enough for me.

Expedition Everest

What?! Going to Everest w/o Mom?! They rode it twice without me and we rode it six times together.
Dinosaur.  Can you tell we are having fun?

Kilimanjaro Safari.  Serenity was in heaven.

Rides, Baby!
Cadence loved it too, but it would have been better with Uncle Seth as our guide.

Tower of Terror.  So fun.  Although, Serenity didn't open her eyes once.

One of our trips down Splash Mountain.

Space Mountain!
We of course went on a lot more rides, but these are the ones we caught pictures of.

Other pics
Waiting for the bus.

Playing their DSIs in line for Soaring.

France was so much fun at Epcot World Showcase.

So hot!

Trying to cool down.

MMM, Lemon Gelato!  This gelato may have saved our lives.

Guess what country showcase we were in.  She makes a very cute viking.

Found me a Norseman.
So much fun together!

Family Portraits

It was time.  The last time we had family pictures taken was October 2007.  Both Serenity and Cadence have grown so much since then.  So we had some fun and went for manicures and pedicures and dolled ourselves up and went for our portraits.  We were silly and fun, which is certainly our normal daily life.  It was fun to let some of that be captured on film.  We are super fun after all.  We also hope that you enjoy our pics.

Spring Break

The girls and I had a wonderful spring break.  Uncle Matt  showed us and cousin Sarah so many things in our nations capitol.  Washington D. C. was wonderful and beautiful.  We got to spend three fabulous, tiring days wandering and seeing and learning.  We visited the National Zoo, the Washington Monument, the World War II Memorial, the Lincoln Monument, the National Museum of Natural History, the National Gallery of Art, and the National Portrait Gallery and American Art Museum.  All five of us piled onto the bench of a bicycle taxi (boy was that an adventure) when we were hot and tired and needed to get to the Metro station before we dropped in a heap. 

Sore feet and screaming joints somewhat limited what we fit into the time.  I really thinks we could easily fill another week or more with all that we WANTED to see.  Oh well, I guess we will just have to go back a few times in the next few years.  Maybe next time we can do some of our touring on the bicycles available to rent, ooh, or maybe on Segways.

Crazy fun girls
