Are We There Yet?

Miles to vacation destination........approximately 625;

Hours together as a family in our "bus" (Yukon).............approximately 11-12;

The looks on the faces of the Royal Duo as we arrived at our destination................priceless!
(I certainly wouldn't say 'inexpensive!)

Yep, the Royal Duo met some Disney princesses. I think they felt quite at home with Cinderella's castle.

The Royal pair with Aurora (The Queen's fave). Before this photo was shot The Princess lifted up the bottom of Aurora's dress to see what kind of shoes she had was important to know.

With Cinderella (The Princesses fave). Yes, The Princess inspected Cinderella's shoes as well. BTW, she wasn't wearing glass slippers. When Cinderella asked their names The Princess replied, "Princess."

With Belle. Again, it was important for The Princess to know what kind of shoes Belle was wearing.

Cinderella's castle at night.

The end of a long, hot, hot day.

My little Royal Pirates waiting for Seaworld to open.

Feeding the dolphins.

I can't believe they actually touched the smelly fish!

We sat in the splash zone at the Shamu show. The Queen freaked out when splashed. The Princess loved it! It was icy, cold saltwater. It actually felt pretty good in the Florida heat.

"I l-o-v-e whales!!!" A quote from The Princess.

I discovered that The Queen is a thrill seeker and loves rides, especially roller coasters. She can count me out when she moves up from the kiddie rides! No, this Beach Mama doesn't like heights, drops, spins, twists, turns, hanging upside down, or going in a circle!

The Princess rode all of the rides too, but I don't think she enjoyed them as much as her sister.
All in all, it was a magical time!

Looks like you had a great time! We went to Disney World last October and had a blast. On the way home we were all saying we were ready to go back right then. Hopefully we'll make it again next year. We've never done Sea World, but I think we'll definitely add it to next year's trip. Looks like your girls loved it.

Awesome vacation!!!! So what kind of shoes do princesses wear under their gowns anyway?

Can't wait to see you next weekend in PA! We will be the chubby pale ones in the group, lol.

Glad you guys had a good time. Looks like we're "staycationing" this year.

And do share... what kind of shoes did they have? I bet you Cinderella will get her some glass slippers now that she knows that any little princess worth her salt is gonna check for that.

Looks like a wonderful time! The Tongginator has yet to go to Disney, but we went (as a couple) pre-Tongginator. Are we terrible people or what? Heh.

We just made the drive in April and visited Sea World too while we were there.

I hope you had a GREAT vacation.
