More Fun at Magic Kingdom

After spending a day at each of the parks, we set aside the last few days to catch up on things we hadn't been able to do earlier.  The first catch-up day was spent at the Magic Kingdom...there's so much to do there!

Before our trip, I learned that you could get your baby's first haircut at their barber shop, so that's where we went first.  Jett did great!  He sat still the whole time and didn't make a sound.  The lady kept commenting on how well he was doing!  After she cut his hair, he got a pair of Mickey ears that says "First Haircut"  He looks so handsome with his big boy hair!

Since the barber shop is in the front of the park, we took the train around to the back of the park, where the judge's tent is...or where you meet Mickey.  This was, by far, Isaac's favorite part of the entire trip!  Every time I ask him what he like the most at Disney World, it's always "Meeting Mickey!"

{Elijah gave Minnie a kiss on the cheek. =)  He started warming up to the characters...apparently!}

After we got that checked off our to-do list, we rode on Goofy's Barnstormer, the kiddie roller coaster, and then let the kids play at Donald's boat.

The kids begged to go on the teacups, and of course we said yes...well, Mike said yes.  I said, you guys have fun...I'll watch!  Any ride that spins makes me so sick!  So Mike took the older 4 on it, while me, Chelsea, and Jett waited for them.

{Isaac was scared at first, but ended up loving it...a theme for him the whole week}
{of course, Elijah loved every minute!}

The speedway ride was definitely a must-do for Elijah, so Mike took him on that, and Elijah got to drive!  He had so much fun! 

Poor Isaac had to sit out...he was too short.  So we got him a lollipop to snack on! :)  He was just as happy about that!

We had lunch at El Pirata y el Perico, and it was yummy!  After we ate, we noticed that the pirate show was just starting, so we stopped to watch.   Laney got called to come up on stage with 3 other kids, to be trained by Captain Jack Sparrow on how to sword fight!  She was so excited!  At the end, Elijah and Chloe were also called up, along with about 15 other kids.

Next, we were off to ride Pirates of the Caribbean.  It has a little bit of a drop, so I was a tad bit concerned about how Jett would do, but he was completely fine.  I'm a little bit paranoid, or didn't you know? :)

The next few rides were the Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain (which Mike took Elijah on, and he loved it...his theme for the week), the carousel, and the Buzz Lightyear ride.

After all that, we were kinda just trying to kill time, waiting for the electrical parade and the fireworks show to start.  We got our seats on the curb early, and had ice cream while we waited.  I took the girls shopping while Mike saved our seats with the boys.

Can I just say that the opening part of the song to the electrical parade is like, the scariest thing on the planet.  Seriously, it frightens me...alot.  That robotic voice combined with the background music is just so eerie to me.   Maybe it's just me, but it is creeeeeeeeepy! 
The parade is cool, but that opening part is not!

This was the second time for us to see the Wishes nighttime firework show, because we had horrible seats the first time!

We were able to do everything on our check list, minus the daytime parade.  Magic Kingdom is so much fun!
