And the favorite park is....

The Magic Kingdom!
The Magic Kingdom was our last park adventure on this trip. I decided to skip Epcot and Hollywood Studios and return there since I knew it had a lot of rides that Summer enjoyed. We didn't ride half of the rides we rode before, but we did visit several princesses this time: Belle, Cinderella, Aurora and last, but not least, Snow White. Snow White is Summer's favorite princess and we ended up getting a picture with her for one of the souvenirs. I was amazed at how much time the princesses spent talking to her. On and on they went, speaking in soft, sweet voices.Summer, as usual, was ready to get a souvenir before the day was half way through. I kept trying to get her to want to ride more rides, but all she wanted was to pick out a souvenir for herself and Lexie. I think the thing she liked best at the park yesterday was a playground in Toon Land. If she went down the slide once, she went down thirty times. The trip was all about her, so I am just glad she had a good time. The first thing she wanted to ride when we got to the park was Snow White's Scary Adventures. Then she wanted to ride the Winnie the Pooh ride. We rode it twice. We went in Mickey's house this time and ended up getting to see him and Minnie again. They were at our village earlier that morning, along with Pluto, Goofy & Belle, but you can never see them enough. It is neat because they come here twice a week to see the kids. The first time Mary Poppins came instead of Belle. Two other days, Universal sends over a character or two. Earlier this week it was Dora. Not sure who it will be today. The only other rides she rode yesterday were the Tea Party (spinning tea cups) and Dumbo. No Peter Pan, It's a Small, Small World, space ship, race car, Aladdin or carousel rides for her that day (she rode those the first visit in addition to the ones listed above). We did get to see a different parade on our way out. Summer got to dance with Baloo during it and had a great time. At first she just sat in her stroller and watched not wanting to join in the dancing fun (she was ready for souvenirs, LOL). But, after a few minutes, she got up and danced with me.

Last night was Christmas here at the village. Santa and Mrs. Santa were here. There were horse drawn carriage rides. There were Christmas decorations everywhere. After Summer sat on Santa's lap, she got to go pick a present. I knew what she was going to pick before she did: a FurReal baby kitten. They really think of everything here and make the visit special for all the kids here. Every day when we returned from the parks, there was a special surprise waiting for Summer on our kitchen table. I can't say enough good things about this place. Well, I better run. Summer wants ice cream for breakfast!
