Disney with Taylor

Our day started out with an early morning rise as we had about a 75 minute drive to reach The Magic Kingdom. I took a picture of Taylor and his mom, Terra, in the back eating the breakfast burritos I made for the trip.

Here we are entering the park amongst the other 9,000 people that day. Even though we knew we might get caught in the rain, as the forecast called for 70% chance, we made a decision to go anyway.

The lines were very long (40minute wait for most) so we hopped on the carousel while we waited for our "fastpass" time.

A "fastpass" is something you can get at most of the rides and it allows you to come back at a later time and go directily in ahead of the line.

Ralph and I had never been to Mickey's Toontown as this is definitely for the younger children, so we just had to stop and see Mickey and Minne's house for Taylor.

This is Mickey's kitchen. He seemed to be having a bit of a problem keeping it very clean while he was cooking.

Of course, you can't go to Disney and not ride the famous tea cups. I forgot how fast they could spin.

About 4 o'clock we decided to get out of the park and all the crowds, and it had been raining so much that our clothes and shoes were soaked, so we headed over to Friendly's to eat. While we were there a man and his parrot were outside so we rushed out there before he left to get this picture.

Here is Taylor and mom on the "Buzz Lightyear" ride. You get to shoot at all the moving objects as you go through this adventure and it even tallies your points at the end.

I just wished my camera was able to pick up the beauty of the spectacular fireworks show the Disney puts on at the end of the day. This is the only one that turned out much of anything.
Even with the rains, we had a great day and one I am sure Taylor will never forget. Actually, the rain will be a part of the memory as we had to wear those awful, cheap ponchos and my daughter's sandals kept coming apart from being wet and we all laughed a lot.
Isn't that what life is really about? Creating wonderful memories that will stay with you throughout your life.
