Before we moved to The Swamp, we had to sell more than half of our belongings. Knowing we were moving to Tourist Country, and that we'd want to see a few things while we lived here, the money we made from that massive yard sale was put aside for future theme-park use.
While Brett's family was here, we decided to put that money to good use and go with them to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World.
We took a ferry ride over a lake to get to the park's entrance. I think you can see the princess castle by Brandon's ear in the picture below.
The cousins were excited to hang out together in such a cool place!
The first ride they all wanted to go on was Space Mountain. Josh had never been on a roller coaster before, and it never occurred to any of us that it probably wasn't the best ride to take him on first thing in the morning, for his very first time riding a roller coaster.
You can't see it very well in this picture, but Josh covered his eyes the entire time. Poor kid. When he got off he said, "That was the worst day of my life." He talked about how much he didn't like it the entire day.
When they met Buzz, Josh was so excited. He said, "I love you to infinity and beyond!" Buzz did his space arm thing, but I didn't catch it on this little video.
Chris didn't like being thrown into the briar patch...
Josh didn't like Splash Mountain. When we stepped out of the boat he said (loudly and with much conviction) to the people in line, "Do. Not. Get. In. That. Boat! Do. Not. Get. In. That. Boat!"
The kids had school in the morning, and it was hard to wake up, but we all agreed it was worth it. We're glad Brett's family came, and that we had the "fun money" put away to join them at the Magic Kingdom!
