Days One and Two

First day at the house swimming

Receiving our "first time to Disney world" pin

First ever Disney pin for trading. Jake chose Mike and Sulley. Anderson chose Buzz and Woody.

Our Disney trip has been an interesting one so far. The day before we left I noticed Jake was acting a bit out of character. He seemed a little run down but he didn't have a fever and his appetite was good but I was still feeling a bit unsettled about him. We had to wake the boys up at 4 a.m. the day we left. They were chattering and happy as can be on the way to the airport, their excitement was precious.

Take off went well, both Anderson and Jake sat in their car seats and enjoyed the sights and sensations that go with flying. About halfway through the flight Jake started to feel really warm, he was extremely sleepy and didn't want a snack. He never turns down a snack. I offered him everything I had but he refused and he didn't want to get out of his seat. Things were not looking good.
After we landed, got to our house and settled in we gave Jake some Motrin. His fever was over 102 at this point. I laid him down to nap and he slept like a rock for a few hours. After he woke we took him to the pediatric urgent care. The dr. said his throat, ears and nose all looked good and that he just had a virus. That was a relief, by the next day he was feeling and acting much better.
On Saturday we headed to Disney studios. The boys LOVED Playhouse Disney! They had so much fun dancing and singing with Mickey, Handy Manny, Little Einstiens and Winnie the Pooh. That was definitely the highlight of their day! We took them to meet Lightning McQueen and Mater. Anderson enjoyed it, Jake was a little shell shocked. He glued himself onto me and never took his eyes off either car in case they were planning something sinister. As the boys would say "it makes me a little nervous, Mom".
We came home for a nap in the afternoon and returned around dinner time. The boys spent time in Honey I shrunk the kids and got to ride the new Toy Story ride. Standing in line for rides has been quite the challenge. Anderson is pretty patient and finds constructive ways to keep himself busy. Jake, on the other hand, is a totally different story. He hangs and climbs onto the railings, he bumps into other people, tries to run up ahead and finds any other mischief he can to bring us to our knees. There have been some extremely dicey moments thus far while standing in line. Thankfully the longest line we've had to wait in was 45 minutes. Never again though, at least not on this trip. It's fast pass or forget it.
