Disney World with Grandpa and Gigi: Day 1

My Mom had planned a trip down to visit us over Memorial Day weekend and while she was planning we were both saying how we wish my Dad could come spend some time with us.  I was really excited my Mom was coming down but bummed at the same time because my Dad didn't get a plane ticket and couldn't take the days off work.  My Mom got here on Sunday and played with the babies all week while we were at work.  I'm sure I said at least 5 times "oh I wish Dad was here, or how much fun would this be with Dad" Thursday night we were all packed for our Disney weekend and my Mom promised the twins a surprise after dinner and baths.  She already offered us ice cream sandwiches once, we turned them down because we were too full from dinner. Later that evening she asked if we would like another surprise and we said "No" to more ice cream. Then she said," its at the door"......AND THERE WAS MY DAD at the front door!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe they kept it a secret that whole time. It was awesome!!!
Grandpa, Gigi and Carter and Kenna on Main Street at the Magic Kingdom. We decided to go there the first day because it had the most for the twins. 

 Our first ride: Pirates of the Caribbean. It is Grandpa and Carter's Favorite ride. They were both singing "yo ho, yo ho, a pirates life for me" the whole time :) it was Captain Carter and Captain Grandpa for the rest of the day.
 ... we tried but couldn't make it out of the store without a sword.. Here's Captain Carter with his pirate ears and sword. He was a pirate for the rest of the day (for the rest of the weekend) and even today grandpa and carter were running around the house with their pirate swords. Everything that even resembles a sword becomes a sword....(hair brush, leg to Kenna's play-pen, a spoon...)
 Pirate Goofy... Carter was checking out his whiskers. and then......
 Carter showed off his best pirate moves with his sword for Goofy. It was too cute, I think Goofy was even impressed.
 Dad's Iowa hat even got in on the pirate action.
 Dad and Kenna at the Shootin' Gallery. Carter helping Daddy shoot the rifle. They were pretty good. I even did a little sharp shootin'. That rifle was heavy to hold up and shoot. It was fun.
 Dinner at my Dad's favorite place. The Liberty Tavern. It is a family favorite, the kids at all their food and our dinners were also fantastic!
 Everything is better when it's on a Mickey Mouse plate!
 My parents have this exact picture of me when I was Kenna's age at Disney. Churning the butter at Liberty Tavern.
 Hi Grandpa and Kenna!
 Hi Mommy and Carter (that's Gigi down there behind Carter's horse, haha she wasn't tall enough when the horse was all the way up :)
 Grandpa and Carter on Dumbo :) The Boys!
 The girls! Kenna picked out the "Pink Dumbo" here she is making it go up, up, up!
 He's such a good sport about all this! Thanks Chris!!!! We love you!
 So, Kenna loves Pooh and Carter got his pirate sword so Kenna had to have a baby pooh.... That's what I thought she was getting.... Look at what she talked Grandpa into getting her!!! The BIG Pooh!!!!! We gave her the little one and she stuck out her lip like she was sad and Grandpa I need the big one. YEP! She's already got him wrapped up. She hugged and kissed Grandpa all weekend, it was soooooo cute and she gets what she wants :)
 They had a new show with pictures on the castle and the castle changed colors. It was cool.
 But we always love watching the fire works. My mom got a picture of one of the heart fire works, see it?
 The Grand Finale!
Yep, that is one HAPPY BOY!!!!!!! Thank you so much Mom and Dad and Chris for a fantastic vacation!
