My wonderful Mom suggested that the older kids go and she stay at the house we rented with the little ones, so they could swim and we could move through the park a little faster, and ride more rides. This was a GREAT idea, and we had so much fun, I have to say, I did miss the kids when we saw Shrek 4-D and the Jimmy Neutron's Blast, but that was short-lived when we rode the "Revenge of the Mummy", that was a thriller, all the special effects were really cool.
We experienced "Twister, Ride It Out" and "Earthquake", if there had been a "Flood" feature, we would have skipped it anyway I think. These things were so real! We did take a boat ride and visit "Jaws", completely cheesy and a very old one, but none the less it still attracts, and my Dad got SOAKED! The guide actually said all guys wearing a white polo and a black Nike hat on this boat would get soaked and he was right! It was amazing! It was a good laugh, that's for sure!
The others climbed a brick wall, I ate Ben & Jerry's! Nick, Andrea, Aaron and Keith all made it up the wall. Nick kicks butt, he works out though, no fair!
Keith, loved this! He was good too!
One other thing that we did was have our pictures taken and inserted into movie posters, they cost some money to take home, but playing around with the photographers was really fun, trying out the different posters! Rob and I tried to be Shrek & Fiona, Rob forbid us to purchase this picture! Keith tried a football player and Andrea and I did one with two nuns, that was hysterical! Nick did a Back to the Future poster and Aaron, who got the biggest kick out of this, did like five or six I think and they included a little Star Wars, Indian Jones and The Terminator, plus a few more! My Dad is an awesome Robert DiNiro!
Of course at the end of the day we had had an awesome day and Mom and the kids had loved there day too, they played and swam at the house all day, and loved it, anytime with Nana is a good time!

I love Christmas and get the kids an ornament for each of them every year and the Christmas All Year store, is a must see, so many ornaments to choose from, I know you could find the perfect one for any child.
Okay, first, Space Mountain (awesome), then Buzz Lightyear (very cool), then, Splash Mountain (don't know, looked fun, but you get wet!). The kids saw Stitch's Great Escape while the bigger kids rode Space Mountain. The rest of the day we saw Monster Inc. Laugh Floor, very funny, rode some spinning tea cups on the Mad Tea Party (I actually really love this one), Cinderella's Golden Carousel, I have this thing about carousels - I have to ride them all! We also flew a Dumbo, Ethan's favorite, played in the water at Ariel's Grotto, the kids were soaked! We saw the 3-D Mickey's PhilharMagic, this was just so neat, and some of the bigger kids went to the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, Keith really liked that.
The shows we saw were so great too! We saw the "Dream Along With Mickey" show, this included all the Princesses, I could have gone home after that, it was so magical! Grace and Joy got to be in a show with Belle during Storytime with Belle. We also saw the SpectroMagic parade, I highly recommend this, it wasn't till 9pm, but so worth the wait! We saw the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, at 10:00, also late, but this was something we would not miss, the fireworks were amazing, Rob being a rookie piro himself, was awed by the choreographing to music! It truly was magical, even better than the fourth of July! We had great seats too, on Main Street, with the fireworks going off above the castle, it was perfect, a perfect ending to a wonderful Disney's Magic Kingdom day. The day had started at 8:30 in the morning in the parking lot and didn't end till almost 11:00 the same parking lot, but you know, the kids were amazing, they all did so well, and had so much fun and, they loved every minute of it too!
I almost forgot, I got good news while we were there too, I found out we were eligible for help from FEMA! I could have cried, I was so happy! I called while the kids played in the grotto and applied right away!
We even got to see dolphins "snuggling" as Grace put it. We quickly gave the "evil eye" to Keith to not comment on the PG-13 display before us and 30 other little ones.
I am told the water ride was cool, Rob and I are not fans of walking around wet all day, so we did not ride, but everyone, including all the kids (minus Zach of course), this was there first major drop ride, they had so much fun. Their expressions were priceless going down that drop! Wide eyes and mouths open!
There was the neatest play ground that was like McDonald's play land on steroids! It was HUGE, the kids went nuts! They ran and climbed and had a blast in all the tunnels and slides! The best part, the shade under it, and picnic tables too, all the parents congregated there to watch the kids having fun, Topeka needs one!
I fed Zach and Papa Earl a frozen treat, they really enjoyed it, but Zach wasn't sure how he felt about sharing (Papa Earl either)!
Then, of course, there is Shamu, the whole reason we love Sea World. Everyone was awe-struck by this show! Even Zach couldn't take his eyes off the huge killer whales.
