Leaving on a jet plane.... (DISNEY- PART 1)

To the Disney World Monsoon!

I actually don't even know where to begin when recording all of our Disney memories.... so I will just start at the beginning and I promise it only gets better :)

So the flight was a concern- from the day we told Ivy we were going to fly on an airplane to go to Disney World she was not EXCITED- about the flying part that is! Over the last 7 months we have convinced her that the airplane would be great.... it was a super fast way to get to the princesses. So on Saturday morning we made the trek to Cincinnati to catch our direct flight to the magical paradise of Disney World.

The girls did AWESOME! That is the flight to be on for first timers.... there were so many kids that I didn't have a worry in the world and I think it actually made Ivy feel calm knowing that she wasn't the only one. Tula was a little monkey climbing between our seats but the sounds and looks of Miss Patty Cake on our little DVD player kept her entertained (and I am sure they made innocent bystanders want to scream)!! But hey, it worked.

And then we arrive to this....

The girls stood at the window and watched the rain pour and we contemplated what to do. We looked at the forecast for the next 5 days and they were calling for rain, rain, flooding, and more rain.... so we did it. We bit the bullet paid top dollar for rain ponchos since our luggage and rain gear hadn't arrived just yet. And we headed over to a very wet, but still very magical Magic Kingdom.

It was cold and my attitude was not good.... just being honest here. I stood under a covered area with Tula while Ivy and Daddy rode Dumbo (in the monsoon) over and over. On the bright side, there was no line in sight! I stood there and I prayed.... I prayed for the weather first. Which felt very small but I really needed Him to hear and answer big. And then I prayed for my attitude in case the rain was persistent. But God took that first prayer and wow he showed himself big time!

But not so fast.... we woke up Sunday morning.... pulled open the window shade and the rain was still falling. I had a smile (there is that 2nd prayer) and we got our rain gear (2 more rain jackets and 2 umbrellas) and headed back for a day at Magic Kingdom! We even stopped for a castle picture since the day before allowed for no pictures and friends, 2 minutes post picture the sky went from gray to bright blue and that was the last rain drop we had the entire trip! Oh and the memories we made- coming soon :)
