Disney World!

I arrived in Orlando on Friday afternoon and after getting a little lost, we managed to find our hotel. We stayed in a suite at the All-Star Music resort. On the way to the hotel, I had my first bout of morning sickness (the vomiting kind). It was only appropriate that I experienced this while in the car with my ladies LOL.

Heather and me on the bus to Downtown Disney
We had a nice dinner at Downtown Disney and did some shopping. In the morning, we started at the Magic Kingdom and went on all of my favorite rides!

The castle!
I wish I had bought more Disney things when I was there. I got a cheshire cat mug for myself, and a mug with Grumpy on it that says "I hate mornings" for M (perfect!) Lastly, I bought a little pink jumper that has Minnie Mouse in a princess dress and says "Princess in Training". So cute. If we don't have a girl, we can use it as a gift for someone else.

The ladies
Here we are just starting our day. My favorite ride was the Haunted Mansion. After a long day we headed back to the hotel to relax for a little while we headed over to Hollywood Studios for dinner and a few rides.

Hollywood Studios
We started Sunday at the Animal Kingdom, but didn't stay too long since Heather and I couldn't go on any of the rides. We couldn't even do the safari. I will definitely have to go back there someday.

The Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom
Then we went over to Epcot (my favorite!) and had a great time visiting the countries. We spend a lot of time at Canada, where Sarah is from, and got some great pics. We really lucked out with the weather the whole weekend, it was gorgeous.

Sunday night we had dinner at Downtown Disney again, at a restaurant called T-Rex. It was awesome! My favorite part was a giant octopus hanging from the ceiling that had moving tentacles. Priceless.

On my way home on Sunday while on my layover in Chicago, a woman offered me the seat next to her and said "congratulations!" I was completely shocked. I am bloated, but I certainly don't look pregnant yet. ::sigh::

Best news ever came yesterday. After a magical weekend at Disney World, Jolene is pregnant!!!
