Disney's Magic Kingdom

We had a very early start this morning when Fenix woke up crying with a fever (due to the fact that she is teething). So Phil had to go get her some infant tylenol. After she took it I got her back to sleep and fell back asleep myself while Phil worked on his computer.
5 hours later we left for Disney's Magic Kingdom.

First thing we did was go get the kids Mickey Mouse ears.
We told Bear and Lyon to pick out the one's they wanted, anyone at all, as long as we approved anyway. After a few trials and errors they got it right and $56 later they had Mickey ears with their names on the back. Later Bear was complaining that he wanted me to buy him something else not,
"this stinkin old hat,"
I told him he better not say that do his Dad because he wouldn't get a single thing more.

Second the boys met Pinocchio, he was the only character they met. :( No Mickey.

(Bear, Pinocchio, and Lyon. Check out their awesome Mickey ears :D)
Third, rides. We did have to wait in a few lines today. We probably told Lyon "DON'T" a million times. You can only distract and use positive wording so many times.
"Lyon get down from that rail, come see the Dumbo ride, look over there at that thing I am pointing to, hey what should we do after this, DON'T CLIMB ON THE RAIL, STOP RUNNING AWAY, DON'T, DON'T, DON'T!!!

When we went to eat dinner, I sent Phil and Sissy to go get us food while I took the boys to the bathroom. Bear really needed to go, so he went while I encouraged Lyon that he really should take the opportunity and go while we were there so that we wouldn't have to come right back. Well, he would't go pee. I told him to try and he cried and wouldn't. I am sure it was a very funny sight to the other ladies in the restroom. Especially when after touching everything in the bathroom he refused to wash his hands because he didn't want me to hold him up to the sink. No, he wanted to stand and do it himself, like Bear did. Only Lyon couldn't reach the sink like Bear could! So he wouldn't wash his hands and then while I washed mine he took off out the door. I really wanted to beat him, but I didn't so don't worry. Luckily he didn't wander far and I found him a few minutes after he ran off.

After dinner Phil took Lyon and Sissy back to the hotel so Bear and I could go off on our own adventure. (what a sweetheart, thanks babe :) Bear wanted to go on Splash Mountain and Thunder mountain, but Splash Mountain was closed. So we ended up going on Thunder Mountain 5 times in a row. Bear couldn't decide if he thought it was scary or not, but he kept insisting we go on it again and again. Since there wasn't a line I said "sure".
After the 5th time I told him no more, so he asked if we could go on Peter Pans wonderland. I had no idea what he was talking about. He explained to me that he had seen it just before we went on "the boat ride" (its a small world) and that he had asked to ride it, but, "You and Dad" didn't let him. He wanted to go on it so bad, so I pushed him in the stoller all the way to the other side of the park to take him on it. It was a cute ride, but I felt bad because we missed the final show that they do with the fireworks at Cinderella's castle. I guess I really shouldn't feel bad though because I think Bear was happy just going on Peter Pans wonderland (I still don't know what it was really called)

It was a pretty good day. I brought enough snacks and not too many clothes :D
Tomorrow we will try to go earlier so that we can go find Mickey Mouse first thing :D
Although I don't think we have decided on a park yet.

(We really are a bunch of wild animals, don't ya think ;)
