Magic Kingdom

Ok, I promised to continue the Disney trip. Our second day was spent at Magic Kingdom. To me, there is no other MAGIC like the Magic Kingdom.
It was hard to leave for the park when Animal Kingdom Lodge had so much to offer. Amanda and Parker left a few hours earlier than us, so they could have some special time and ride the fast and scary rides. We met them at the Main Street Barber for some haircuts and then lunch at the Plaza Cafe . It was fun sitting in the restaurant on Main Street and doing some people watching. The one thing you always see is SMILES! Main Street is Magic to me.
Baby Jack with his new Big Boy haircut.....ready for some rides.....
Jack not so sure he wanted a shuttle driver to hold him (I promise to fix the dates on my camera...crazy) Grammy and Jack on the shuttle after I had handed him off to a strange man...HA
Jack looking out on Main Street...wondering when the fun starts!


Parker laughing at Jack's antics...many include dropping food on the floor.

Mr. Serious with his hat that Animal Kingdom gave him.

On to the Buzz Lightyear Ride, which Amanda and Parker had already been on a few times ...Jack loved it too. Then we headed to the "Jack"size rides...He loved Dumbo, Snow Whites Scary Adventure, It's a Small World, the Carousel, and especially Mickey's Philharmonic Magic....He really loved the 3D glasses.

this is one of my favorite pictures of Jack "taking all the MAGIC in"

and sometimes he took it in on his Mom's shoulders...He is a 26 pound weight....looks like he is enjoying the ride.

what a funny little guy...the life of the party....

Amanda and her boys......sharing some fun times.
Part of Parker's birthday trip was a birthday card from Grammy and Pop, under his pillow every night...with plenty of cash that he could spend anyway he wanted. (please do not leave a comment telling me we are overindulgent grandparents) It was so much fun watching him buy not only for himself, but special surprises for others....especially his little brother. As we waited "in just the perfect spot" for the Wishes fireworks show to begin, he slipped off to the side and bought Jack a fun Mickey lighted toy.......We have always tried to teach him the concept of "Pay it Forward"! It is such a blessing to see it in action. Disney shops have things on every shelf, that SCREAM, "BUY ME" and even this Grammy has a hard time resisting.
We ended our day with "Wishes"! From the music to the fireworks, to Tink flying through the sky, I am mesmerized. ALWAYS and EVERY TIME I see it. I hope I always will be. Watching those little faces as they make a wish, is more than a Kodak moment, it is seared in my heart.
one tired little Mickey with his pacifier....that says "Tough Guy"!
Classic Jack after a very fun day......Stay tuned for more Disney memories soon.
Parker's 10 new BEST FRIENDS will receive their prizes one day next week.

I have been to Disneyland dozens of times. The first time i went there was when it first opened in July of 1955. I was 18 at the time. I love to go there and love photos taken there. You have a lot of darling photos. They will mean so much in years to come.
Thanks for dropping by my blog.

We've never been. Those are great pics, and the last one just melts me to pieces. How adorable!

chloe's clan said...

Thanks for stopping by! We look forward to having our little baby boy anyday now! Come back and see the photos. :) I love Disney World and hope to be able to take my children someday soon. My sister has a son with brain cancer. He was diagnosed a year ago when he was 2 years old and is now in remission with scans every 3 months. He has hearing problems from the chemo and now has hearing aids which were named Larry and Moe. He picked red and blue for the colors. So handsome! Make A Wish will be sending them in August so I hope they have a blast! Surgery did remove all the tumor in his brain and he was the very 1st child to receive a triple cell transplant at Children's Hopsital in S.L.C., UT. We love to pray for others as prayer is what has sustained us and will continue to as he battles through this next phase. Thank you for sharing prayer requests. They do help!

Eclectic Pink Rose said...

Mary Elizabeth said...

Lovely time, Lovely Disney.
Photos are great, each time is like you really there, so thanks for the trip.
Now and Then

Lynne said...

You must have all had such a great time. Overindulgent? No way - that's what grandparents are for - to have the fun of doing things for their grandchildren and seeing the joy on their faces. Enjoy yourself!

Joyce said...

Thanks for peaking at my blog and commenting on my weed on Hilton Head. The boys are adorable and I read your loving story about your super son-in-law. Not easy to say you were wrong. We are planning to take the entire family to Disney in the Fall so I am hanging on all your words as to where we should stay since you have been there with everyone. Everyone wants different things and I just want Harmony:)
Joyce

Mimi's Toes said...

I have only been there 1 time. My son told me to start planning for 5 years from now when we will all go as a family. These are treasure pictures. Your family is just so sweet. Your blog name fits this blog perfectly..."Treasured Memories"...you are a blessed grammy.

Julie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your grandkids are ADORABLE! I love all the pics! I'm looking forward to taking my kids to Disney World some day... :)

The Real Me! said...

That looks like fun. My brother works at Epcot so we try to go there whenever we can. My husband doesn't care for Disney so my daughter and I go and ride the coasters at least once a year. LOL.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Have a great weekend.
Kim

Kim said...

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed yours as well! We are big Disney fans and since it is only 2 1/2 hours from us we go as often as we can with the Florida residents deals! Your grandchildren are precious! Take care!

Emily said...

What a great trip! I can't wait to take my crew to Disney. Those boys are too cute!

Jenny said...

Sounds like a fun trip. I like the cash under the pillow idea, that way they don't spend it all on one day :)

Sniffles and Smiles said...

Priceless!!!!! All of your pictures are just wonderful!!!! What fabulous granchildren...and your daughter is as beautiful as you are!!!! This post truly made me smile! ~Janine XO

Chandy said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I so appreciate it when others find it.

I will try to add them to my prayers... Glad for people like you who remind us to pray more. Sure helps us too when we pray for others, right? ;-)

Love Being a Nonny said...

There is no way you can do TOO much for those children. Love is meant to share. Keep on enjoying. I plan to do the same.

Heather said...

Along with many other, just want to say thanks for coming by Pages by Heather! You have a beautiful family and I've enjoyed reading your stories. I grew up about 12 miles from Green Bay along with the rest of WI have loved Favre forever as well. Of course, now there are some mixed emotions but I have no doubt that he will always have a spot of honor in our little cheesehead hearts!

Hope to see you again,
Heather

Sasha said...

Hey girl- you posted a photo of your cute self!! Awesome.

Have a great time.

Donetta said...

What a wonderful family. Your an awesome Grandma

Bacardi Mama said...

I am so jealous of all the fun you had. This is the trip I want to take with my family. There are twelve of us now, so it will take a little planning and waiting for the littlest one to be big enough to go. Our problem is that by the time she is old enough to go, we'll probably have a new baby from one of the other girls. It is going to take some time, but we will make it there. For now, I'll just live my dream through you.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Great pics. You have a beautiful family. We've never done Disney. I've heard great things. Looks like you all had a great time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you come back again.

RCUBEs said...

Beautiful pics and great time that's truly worth remembering forever...

Came over to say "hello and thank you" for visiting my site. Will come by here again and God bless.

Brenda said...

Love the green mouse ears! What a great Disney trip!

Courtney said...

CONGRATS! You won a pair of Korker Ribbon Flip Flops from N.A.Jade Designs. Chelsie will be contacting you soon about your order. Again thank you for entering and Congrats!!!

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

This takes me back...we took our kids to Disney when they were about the same age as your two grandchildren. One of my favorite pictures is of my DD sitting on Ariel's lap. It truly is a magical place.

Blessings
Robin

Leigh Anne said...

Looks like a blast. I'm sooo ready for vacation!!

Executive Momma said...

Love the new big boy haircut! It looks like you all had a great time! :)

Summer said...

Oh wow! Sure does make me want to go back to Disney World SOON! I went when I was 7 years old and Epcot was brand new....yep...It's been a while! I just turned 30 a few weeks ago and I think I'm ready to experience the magic again!!!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Oh, how precious! Looks like you all had a blast! Such cuties... from Grannies to Grandsons! As a self-respecting magpie, I would never tell you that you are overindulging a child. I don't think that's possible! And they don't look like they're any worse for the wear. They look happy and loved!

Glad you had a good time at Disney. I've been dozens of times (living in Florida), but it is a wonderful place. Those photos of happy children prove it!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Becky K. said...

I am so glad you found me at Hospitality Lane so I could discover your wonderful blog and your beautiful family.

We had a fun trip to Florida in February and this post has brought back so many special memories.
Thank You!

The grandchildren appear to have had a crazy fun day!

Good for you for helping to make it even more special!

First of all, I am a mom of two and can relate to the overwhelming feeling when you see other mothers going through so much.
I am very family oriented. I am a stay at home mom and I LOVE my job. It is the best gift ever.

Second of all, thank you so much for visiting my site. I am glad you found me. I enjoy your site. You have a BEAUTIFUL family. If you look a few posts below my recipes you will see my fam. too.

Take care.

I have been blogging for a little while but still learning.

I looked at all your Disney photos. How cool! We want to take our kids to Disney-0ne day.

Lauren said...

Precious photos! I will be praying for your friend Maggie!

Bobbi Jo said...

I too love the magic kingdom. I love all the pictures you are sharing. What sweet boy that Jack and Parker. Love the serious look on Parkers face and the sweet smile on Jacks. What a fun time. I hope that I am able to take my grand kids to Disneyland some day. I love your idea with the money and card, how sweet is that. You are so pretty and adore your sun glasses.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Hope you come back often. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I'll be thinking of Maggie!

I have never been to Disney but my niece worked there up until a couple of months ago. She was either Chip or Dale (I could never get it straight).

The House of Sprout said...

Love your blond haired Jack - we have one too! So much fun seeing the Disney through their eyes!

Linda said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love your Disney post and these sweet boys! We can't wait to take our grandsons to Disney. There is nothing better than seeing Disney through the eyes of a child for the first time. We LOVE Disney!!
I will be following your story for sure...I love the part about being indulgent grandparents. Anyone who says they are not, aren't telling the truth!!

Susan D said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting today. You have some great pictures here. Looks like everyone had a fabulous time. I haven't been to any of the Disney spots but it's looks like a good time. I'll be sure to stop by Maggie's site. Have a great evening. Blessings, SusanD

Hi Teresa! So glad you stopped by my place and good to see you are posting on Disney. We are planning a trip there in the fall so I know I'll get lots of good info from your postings.

Tammy said...

Love the update. I thought the expression on little Jack's face was priceless when the shuttle driver was holding him:) I also agree that people watching is one of my fave things about Disney. Last trip, we waited a good while on Main Street for Spectro Magic ~ we had hot dogs from Casey's, met several people and had the most AMAZING time.

Love the way that you LOVE Parker, and I know for sure that this is what he feels from you. He remembers the LOVE and this love and devotion will frame his life with security and purpose!

Maryann said...

Looks like you have such a wonderful family! I love your pics and especially that you are "overindulgent". Is that not one of the greatest perks of Grandparenting?!?!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I too love to meet new friends out here in blogville!
Blessings to you and yours!
Maryann

Sarah said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! What cuties you have!

whimzie said...

Teresa, did you get my email with Mom's email address? I don't think some of my emails are making it into inboxes. Check your spam folder and let me know if you got it or not.

Mrs. Tracy said...

Oh...that last picture is just precious! He looks wore out ;o}

Susan said...

How fun! Our family has been talking about doing a Disney trip with all the grand kids. Looks like you all had a great time. Your boys are darling. I love being a grammy!
God bless

Diana...aka...MeMe said...

Well Hello there Grammy!! Its MeMe! You have treasures and I have gems!! Isn't grandparenting just the BEST!!! My granddaughter Sarah, who is 3 1/2, can not see the Disney castle without shouting... "My Papa's going to take me there!!" We are planning a trip with our daughters and their families next year!! I thought parenting 4 kids was wonderful, but I must say nothing beats this Meme gig!!!

Tonja said...

Hi Teresa,

Michelle said...

Hey Teresa, thanks so much for stopping by my Vintage Sage blog. My main blog is Chocolate and Marmalade Tea (http://www.chocolateandmarmaladetea.blogspot.com/). I love your blog and The Magic Kingdom is one of my FAVORITE places to go!! I miss it already. It's been a couple of years since I was able to visit. Love the rides, the magic and just the stress free idea of being there and not at work! Lol! Your kids look like they are having a fab time. :) Hope you guys had a great time and thanks again for stopping by! I don't update Vintage as much as I do Chocolate but I am trying to be better at it.

Lots of hugs!

Looks like you had a fun trip! And what a great treat, to watch Parker use his birthday gift to buy little presents for others too.

findingourdaughter said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a comment!
As a Floridian (born and still here), I'm so glad to see you had such a GREAT time at Disney.
We actually just took our boys there in April 2008 for the first time (even though we live so close...they were 6 and 4 already)---but perfect ages! I also fell completely in love with Magic Kingdom, whereas I originally thought we were "just going for the kids".
Your family is wonderful.....I can't wait to be a grandma.....although I have quite a bit of child rearing to go.....we are adopting #3 and in the future hope to also add a #4 by adoption as well.
God Bless from FL!

Barbaloot said...

Wow--what nice grandparents you are to take those kids on a fun trip!! That's going above and beyond the call:)

elaine @ peace for the journey said...

My children have the rich blessing of having grandparents who lavishly spoil them; we don't see them often, but when we do, my kids know they're in for a treat.

Thanks for sharing your memory with us.

Hi Teresa,
Nice to meet you, thanks for stopping by. You have a lovely family. I adore anything Disney, so what a treat to see the little ones enjoying that wonderful adventure. We go as often as we can but we have yet to take our grandkids, they are about ready I think. As for over indulgent, no such thing when grandparents are involved. Happy Day.
~Maryrose

Hey, Grammy Girlfriend,...thanks for stopping by and leaving a nice comment.

OH I hope one day to be an awesome Grammy just like you. We too are an entire family of boys. Love every loud, crazy, minute of it! I also have a Parker (and a Presley, and and Andy). BOYS RULE my world!

Love that you shared your Disney trip with us. We haven't been in so long, and I miss it. Seeing their faces is worth every dime.

Have a wonderful weekend. Thank you for visiting today!

What a nice blog! Great pictures. Disneyland is our home away from home. I had such a thrill being there on the 50th anniversary and hearing Art Linkletter speak - he was there the day it opened! My kids talk about how they will be there for the 100th. Truly a magical place.

Amber said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! It looks like you had a wonderful and memorable time at Disney! Little Jack is such a cutie! Treasure these moments with him and Parker and soak it all in, because they are going to be all grown before you know it. :) My baby brother is graduating from high school tomorrow and I was making a photo board with my mom this week for his party. I can still remember that cute little boy playing and being silly, and can't believe he is grown and going off to college!

Lindsey said...

Thanks for visiting my blog:) Loved reading about your trip to Disney and looking at your pictures. I can't wait to take my little guy one day in the future! I see you are in La...I'm originally from NO!

Lorie said...

What great pictures. We are on the West Coast, so we are Disneyland people. We go every year, but I hope to be able to take my kids to Disney World one of these days!

PS, if you were at Disney World on the 13th then the date on the camera isn't wrong, it is just set in the date fist format. Most South American countries put the date before the month.

I loved your Disneyland blog. I've only been there once but I loved the experience.
How generous of your grandson to buy things for other people! And don't worry about spoiling them a little. I only have one grandparent and I wish our family could see her more often.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looks like yall had a wonderful time at Disney. We're Disney addicts as well. My parents are in the vacation club at the Wilderness Lodge Villas and we love it there. We go several times a year and even for short weekends since we live in Fla. We just got back on Friday and had the best time. I will be posting pictures on my blog from our trip in the next few days. I'm glad to see there's someone else out there that loves to share Disney with their family as much as ours does too. Happy Birthday to Parker by the way :)

Lisa said...

Oh wow! You must have had such fun! Thanks for sharing your trip and for visiting me!!

Thank you for stopping by my blog. When we were coming up with baby names (you can see my blog about our little boy Carter who is now with the Lord since Aug. 9, 2009...) we decided that if we had a girl should be Parker Grace. We still are waiting for the Lord to bless us with another pregnancy and possible a girl (or boy) who we will call Parker! We are looking forward to the day when we can have kids and go to Disney. We have been once in our marriage (with other family) and loved our time there! I look forward to getting to konw you through your blog as well as share our story with you from my blog.
