Mom was on this focused quest to figure out the new fast pass system, and it put her in a mood where for some reason the girls seeing Tinkerbell and the parade and NOT going on any rides drove her crazy. So she sent us to the line for the magic carpets. For long time fans of my life you might recall that Stella HATES the magic carpet ride and I have a very hilarious video of her freaking out on it. Well, I don't think it is that scary of a ride since we just "fly" in a circle, so I was sure that she would have outgrown it. I was wrong. As soon as the ride began she was freaking out! And of course, because we are the meanest moms, Ashley and I totally laughed the whole time. In other news, Ava loved it.
I unfortunately left my cell phone in the car in the parking lot. It was a bad day to do that for many reasons, but one was that I totally would have gotten the hilarious tears on video if I had not left my dang phone in the car. UGH!! Oh well, you can imagine it...
Overall, I hadn't been on that ride for years so it was fun...for me at least. And now Stella still talks about it like she would give it another chance one day.
In the end they sucked it up and totally loved meeting those special princesses. Ava was sure to bow at them and show her respect, and it was all very cute.
As we were walking in the hotel hallway back to our room, Ashley was carrying Finn. Her skirt was too big and it started to slip down. I looked back to find her holding Finn, trying not to drop him as she is laughing and her skirt falls to the ground. Then I fell to the ground, holding all of the food. That is one moment I unfortunately do not have a picture of, but I think Ashley would say she is pretty glad that I don't. I guess the picture in my memory will have to be the one that lives forever in my heart.
The only other time I got out my bigger camera while we were in Florida together was when we went to the beach. We really didn't have that warm of weather while we were there, especially compared to when we were there in January when it was lovely and really warm. So the day when we took the girls out to the beach it was actually pretty cold. But we still had fun. The girls kept building sand castles and giggling as the waves came crashing in on them. When we got to the car, they were both so cold that we had to wrap them up as burritos and then plop them in their seats so that they could get toasty.
