Disney Day 5

Day 5 of our Disney trip brought us back to the Magic Kingdom. We had the large group I mentioned before and we also met up with the Scofield's. Andrew went to the Academy with Jon, and his lovely wife Amy and their son Gabriel (who is just a week younger than Abby) were stationed in Boston at the same time as us. Abby was very excited to see Gabriel and have someone her own age to experience Disney with.

We were able to see the half of the park that we missed the first day as well as re-visit some of our favorite rides. Abby braved some of the bigger rides such as Pirates of the Caribbean, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (a roller coaster). We had reservations for dinner at a restaurant on Main Street to celebrate Peter and Susan's 33rd wedding anniversary which was that day as well as an early anniversary celebration for Andrew and myself. After dinner we had a spectacular view of the fireworks. I would say the highlight of the day for both Abby and myself was seeing Tinkerbell fly during the fireworks show. It was a truly magical day and an absolute blast!

Peter looks thrilled!! I love the sheer joy on her face in almost all of the photos! She and Gabe are so cute together!

Grampa Pete and I loved every minute! We can't wait to go back in three years when Abby is 6 and Olivia and Baby Cousin Vrabec are 3.

We had such a great time with you guys. I can't believe we didn't get a nice group shot of all of us! Too distracted with the kiddos, I guess.
