After I wrote my post for BATW, I started feeling guilty that I had spent all this money on season passes to theme parks and haven't been using them like I should...You know, use them to at least get my money's worth!!
So I asked the girls to vote on where they would like to go: Sea World or Disney...they voted for Disney. Cameron decided she didn't want to go to Magic Kingdom...she would rather stay home (I think she didn't want to spend the afternoon with Emmy). Jackson went down for a nap and Emmy and I headed to Disney.
Now humor my little back story...I love rides! My eldest, Cameron, hates them. Emmy seems to have more of an adventurous streak so I was keeping my fingers crossed. There's no hope for Jackson either, he screams on the tram ride!
So I'm a little excited (okay, very excited) I'm with Emmy....I'll get to ride some fun rides...not just the carousel or Dumbo. We head right to Tomorrow Land and go into the Buzz Lightyear Ride. And Emmy changes her mind...she doesn't want to ride; she thinks she'll get scared. Okay, a little set back. We then take the little train tour of Tomorrow Land and I use this down time to play up Space Mountain. We get off the ride and start heading that direction; only when she realized where we're heading, she refuses to go further. So I make a deal with her, we'll go on the Grand Prix and then go on Space Mountain. I then proceed to take a ride with the mad driver, Emmy (got some great pictures). We get off the ride and I bring up Space Mountain again...it's definitely a no go. "Okay, so how about Pirates of the Caribbean?" I ask her. "No" "Haunted Mansion?" "No" "Splash Mountain?" "No" ...I get it, I get it...I'm going to have to wait until my sister and brother come into town to ride rides with me! We ended up going on a Small World and the Train ride through the park. I think she had a good afternoon. And even though 12 year old Mommy didn't get her way, I had a good time too.
Please enjoy the slide show...they're from Emmy's Camera. She took almost all of the pictures. I love the pictures she takes; it's like a view into Emmy's mind!! Please note all the pictures of strangers...she reminds me of Lilo with her picture taking.
