And the Celebration Continues

Remember that every comment in the month of June enters you in this months giveaway...the $75.00 "Card Box"!

And the Birthday Celebration continues...And the Magic continues..As we ended our day at the Magic Kingdom we stopped at the watch store on Main Street and Amanda bought Micah a special Disney watch...something he had looked for during our October trip but never found the right one. Amanda found it this time and he loves it. Mission accomplished. Later Parker and I found a new one for Pop...since he always wears Mickey on his arm...an old tradition from our Disney trips.
I promise this Disney post is going to end....it is like the trip...I never want it to end...truth be known, I could live at Disney World with my family and all would be right with the world. I know that is a fantasy..but it is one I love.

Out next day starts with Parker and Amanda heading out earlier than us to Hollywood Studios to ride the really fun rides. We all met at noon to have lunch at one of our favorite places, Mama Melrose's, where they treated Parker like royalty. We love their pizza's and we never visit this park without eating here....for all of you with upcoming Disney trips. The resort had let them know that Parker was the birthday boy, so they brought him a chef hat signed by all the cooks and then to top that off, a fabulous MAKE your own SUNDAE. Jack was not quite sure why he did not get one....Then we watched the Block Party Bash, one of the cutest parades in Disney. We finished the "hot" afternoon with a few rides and lots of shopping...then a little shopping in Downtown Disney...and then back to the hotel to eat and swim. It was a beautiful night to sit on the balcony and look at the animals. I cannot say enough good things about Animal Kingdom Lodge. We have stayed at many of the resorts inside Disney. This one by far was our best
experience. Even our Mousekeeper was the best we had ever had.

Our next day began with a swim and then off to Epcot. Amanda and Parker went to the thrill rides and we
walked around keeping little Jack happy and cool. We ate some fabulous pastries at a little French bakery....shopped and shopped more...Disney gift shops are magnets. Epcot is just beautiful. The flowers are amazing. This park also is the home of my MOST favorite Disney ride...SOARIN...I could ride it 20 times in a day....Because of Parker's celebrity birthday status, we were given priority seating for the Illuminations fireworks show that night...so there was no hurry to find just the right place to sit and wait for hours....we walked in ten minutes before it began
and were escorted to a prime location to sit and watch this fabulous show...Truly amazing what Disney can produce. We had dinner at San Angel Inn and then walked through all the countries....after the fireworks we went back to ride Soarin one more time. I just know that one time I am going to get on and America the Beautiful is going to began to play. It is truly the most amazing ride ever...and you literally go from sea to shining sea. This is a night we were TIRED...to the bone, but a good tired.

We had left Saturday open to visit a park a second time, but decided to go to a new timeshare next to our resort and let the kids do the water park...they had a blast...and we had some great drinks. Saturday afternoon was saved for shopping in Downtown Disney (we had to ship a HUGE box of stuff home and we had even taken an empty suitcase..That's the indulgence I was talking about in the last post. We had dinner at the Ragland Road Irish Pub and it was one of our favorite
meals all week. A fun place for the entire family. Back to AKL to see if we could cram everything in our bags...No we could not...so Jack took all the leftovers to the gift shop and they shipped it all home for us.

Sunday arrived far too fast....We had some great pizza, walked around the resort and finally boarded the Magical Express for our trip to the airport. Another magical week, chalked full of sweet memories, now back to the real world. Smooth flights and connections home (Amanda might beg to differ as Jack had a MAJOR poop on the plane, at just the time the drink cart was in the aisle. It was not a pretty sight...needless to say, she just threw those clothes away on the plane. She later explained to me that it was next to impossible to change a squirming 16 month old, covered in p.....up
to his hair, in the tiny bathroom on the plane....after having stood in the aisle for 10 minutes waiting for them to MOVE the cart....It makes me laugh to think about it....This Grammy will do almost anything for the "boys" but this was out of my league. Where was Micah when we really needed him?

Hope you have enjoyed our Disney trip....I am addicted...Disney and Diet Coke seem to be my addictions. I am already planning our next trip, at least in my head...It truly is the "Happiest Place" on earth..... That magical look in children's eyes is something I never tire of seeing. That is pure MAGIC to me.
So I leave you with some random shots of our final few days at Disney. Hope you enjoy them.......





















Before I close this post tonight I want to introduce you to the sweet lady that helped me get started blogging.
Her name is Holly Smith.

I have ask her literally a million questions and her patience has been awesome. She really gave me the confidence four months ago, that I could BLOG....and I have and I have loved it. She has just made me a new look. She is still tweaking it and it may be a week or so before we have it jut right. Never once has she made me feel like a question was dumb and many HAVE been. You have to understand I DO NOT get the Html AT ALL......

She has a wonderful new design website and has so many new and fun things for your blog. Her site is

Great post!!

Linda said...

You made us so much a part of your trip. It felt like I was walking beside you. Thanks for sharing your trip...I need a magical trip again...soon!

Charlotte said...

Great photos. Disney is definitely a magical place. I've only been to Disney World once but have been to Disneyland many many many times. The first time I went was in July 1955 when it first opened.
I have a lot of pictures taken at Disneyland and made a DVD with them. It's fun to see the kids when they were little with the Disney characters. And it's fun to see my daughter at 40 something with Mickey Mouse.
Now you've made me want to go back to Disney World.
Charlotte

Paige said...

I read all about the Disney trip and how wonderful a time you all had. My mom and I were supposed to go but because of her getting sick we couldn't do it. I'm 42 and she's, 6 something (I don't want to get in trouble) I don't think we will ever make it there but it was nice to see your pictures and feel a little closer to Disney world anyway......Thanks for sharing your disney adventure with us!!!.hugs, Jennifer

Mimi's Toes said...

Thank you for my wonderful gift. I love Betty Boop! That was just the sweetest thing for you to do. I even loved the packaging it came in. What a special Birthday trip and I got lost in each picture. I can't wait to go again to Disney. I've only been 1 time in my adult life, without my family. My dream is to spend a Christmas in Disney with my whole family. My son and his family are going in 4 years and invited me and hubby to go, so I have to start saving. Oh, congrats on your upcoming Grayson!

Mimi's Toes said...

P.S. I love love love the look of your blog. That scripture is my all time favorite scripture. I have it posted on my desk at work. I live by this scripture.

I love Disneyland! I've been to Disney World, too, but the family memories are in California. Our kids love it and now with our grandchildren, we might have to go again! I love Soaring Over California, too! I like your cute blog and I think it is so interesting how grannies gather in the blog world. I'm new to it, too! I'm a teacher and now that school is out, I may have to put time limits on my laptop time!

mrosev14 said...

Wow, it looks like you've had a wonderful time in Disney!!

I live so close and rarely go, I need to do that soon.

Hi,

What a fun time you all had..Wonderful pictures and wonderful blog..I have to tell you. I don't get the html thing either. I signed up on Twitter, to leave someone a comment on their pictures..next thing I was getting tweets all over the place. Didn't know what I did..bad enough, they sent out all these invitations to people I had in my email box..Talk about feeling dumb..Oh Lord..I still haven't gotten over this.

Mildred said...

Joyce said...

Thanks for stopping by. Love your Disney recaps...it is the happiest place on earth! Reading your blog makes me wish for another trip there soon.

I met a taxi driver in London who went on and on about how clean America is and how friendly Americans are. When I asked him where all in America he had been he replied, 'I've been to Disney World 17 times.' Ya gotta love it : )

You have a beautiful family and what a special time you all had at Disney.
My husband was stationed in Shreveport (1985-1989) while serving in the Air Force. He has dear memories of that area. He spent a great amount of time at Cross Lake - windsurfing.
You are welcome to drop in my blog anytime. I hope that you have a very nice weekend.

Be sure to enter my giveaway. It ends tomorrow!:) Lori

Diane said...

Sure looks like your family had a good time at Disney World. We live in California and grew up going to Disney Land. And it sure is a place for fairy tales. So much fun. I went to Disney World many many years ago. I lived in Florida for a short tim. Good luck getting back to life that part is hard.
Hugs, Diane

Teresa - Thank you for stopping by my blog. I too appreciate comments and am very impressed at the number of them you are getting for having only been blogging for 4 months. If you have any "tricks" up your sleeve please let me know.

Your trip sounds absolutely marvelous and your grandchildren are "beautiful". The older boys probably don't appreciate that label but grandchildren are always beautiful no matter how old they get. The picture of the three younger ones lined up on the bed is precious. haha.

I will be visiting again soon.

God Bless,
Mimmy

I am sure they will treasure those memories for the rest of their lives. We must have been there just before you (4th-18th April 2009)! The Animal Kingdom Lodge looks great. I enjoyed all your pictures. I have set up a new private blog for my Disney pictures. If you would like to view it just let me know and I will send you an invite.
Best Wishes from England.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I love meeting new people too.

As for what a spammer is.. its basically these either automated computers leaving comments trying to sell things or get you to check out a certain website.. or its real people who stop just to leave things that you don't want to see or read and leave virus links as well.


I am hoping to go to Disney World in the next couple of years, when my babies get old enough to enjoy it. I loved looking at your pictures and seeing your beautiful family!!!!

Jodi said...

What fun! I am officially having Disney withdrawals! Gotta get back!!!!

Hope said...

Hello,

You hopped over to my blog (My Hope Is in the Lord) yesterday and left me a sweet “Hello”…THANKS!

Wow, you have been married 37 years, and I thought I was pretty far along at 23. :)
Very impressive!

It is great to see you enjoying your family…what a blessing.

See you!

Cathy said...

Thanks for stopping by for a visit yesterday. I love family pictures, and yours are terrific. We're starting to plan our first trip with grandchildren to Disney World. Love your blog.

Ginny Henderson said...

Thanks for visiting Ruthie's blog. You may know this, but I am actually from Texarkana and my dad is from Shreveport. Anyway, I also saw on your sidebar the "pray for Maggie Cobb" link. My family is friends with the Cobbs. Did you find our blog through a mutual friend? I was just curious if the world is really that small or if all these connections make perfect sense.

The pics of Disney are precious. We are thinking about stopping at Hong Kong Disneyland when we go get Ruthie. I am sure it is not near as great as the real thing though.

Blessings- Ginny

thanks for visiting my blog! I have yet to take our little one to Disney but I really need to plan a trip. Looking at your pictures makes me realize how much I want to see my two years old face when we get there!! Your pictures are so fun and I can tell you all had fun. My grandfather actually lives in Springhill, LA-- not too far from Shreveport. Have a good night and I'll check back often to see your adorable grandchildren!

Hi Teresa!

How nice to meet you! You have a great, colorful blog (Holly is awesome, huh?!)LOVE all your Disney play-by-play and photos - you should write an "insiders guide" to Disney - I'm sure there are plenty of first timers who would love something like that!

I'll look forward to more visits here to your place...and thanks so much for your visit to mine!

Hugs & Blessings,
Becky S. at Just Bee 'n Me

Hi Teresa, I was delighted to have you visit The Vintage Nest and hope you'll return often. I just did my first trip to Disney at Christmas. It was a destination Christmas if you will. And Soaring was by far my most favorite ride. I wanted to ride and ride and ride. Hope you have a fabulous week. xo Lynn

Thanks for visiting my blog ... and introducing me to yours! I love to blog hop, too, but hadn't yet landed on yours :)

I have to say, I love that you're from Louisiana. I'm an Alabama girl myself. I traded the SE for the SW a decade ago and miss it terribly.

So nice to "meet" you :)

Thanks for dropping by my blog and saying hello! I have been to DisneyLand! In 1990 my husband was at Camp Pendelton (?) before being deployed to Desert Storm. I flew out for Christmas weekend and they had the weekend off. We went to Sea World, Universal, then Disney on Christmas Day. We came from Alabama (without a banjo on our knee) and stopped random people at the entrance to take our photo with the sign behind us. They were from a town in AL about 50 minutes from where we lived. Such a small world. Our first child was 5 months and I left her with my MIL so our first Christmas was not celebrated with her.

Great Disney pics. We lived in Orlando from June 2003 until just a month ago. My daughter was just six when we moved there. We have so many special memories over the years!

The Humphreys said...

Oh I love Disney we own a timeshare in Kissimee and used to go every year but this October will be the first time my husband and son are going. We are flying in a day early because who wouldn't it's Disney haha and we need a hotel to stay at until the next day when we will be at the timeshare. I've been looking at that Animal Kingdom Hotel and I am so glad that I can now talk to someone who has stayed there. What did you think of it?? I think my son will love it with the animals walking around and being you can see them all right from your balcony.
