The place where dreams come true

So it was super hard to not post about this, but we took Kylie to Disney World this summer. Why not post about it? Well, Matt was interviewing down there, and we couldn't exactly broadcast that. They flew us all down there, and we decided it was a good chance to go to Disney! Now that Matt has accepted a new job, there is no need to keep it to ourselves anymore :)

In the hotel, getting ready to head to Magic Kingdom. Kylie's face is as if she is saying "Pics later, Disney princesses now."

Getting in line to get our close!

Me pinning Kylie's 1st Visit pin on her!

On the ferry to go to the Magic Kingdom....she made a friend and was telling him that she was going to see princesses!

Waiting for the Disney Castle to come into view

We can see it!

Am I really here?!

The show started just a few minutes after we got to the castle.

Dadda, look!

Just a little clip while we waited in line to see the princesses

Meeting the princesses was definitely full of memories to treasure! It was a mix of therapy...trying to interact with these new people. They were princesses so it made it a tad less stressful....she loved it!

Yay for making eye contact with someone new!

Woohoo...letting Belle hold her hands!

Trying to give Cinderella a hug!

Yay..she did it! A bit unsure, but who cares :)

Letting Cinderella hold her tight...this is seriously making me cry...she did great!

Haha..this is blurry, but she was totally not having the Mickey ears on her this face!

Take it off

Shortly after meeting the princesses, we found some mice to hug! Kylie was uneasy about the whole hug thing, but she knew it was just something you do when you're at Disney!

Hmm...where to go next?

Okay, so meeting Snow White was definitely the highlight of the trip. We ended up being the first ones in line to see her, and she was in love with Kylie! She talked with Kylie for such a long time, until she was finally comfortable and really enjoying her time with Snow White.

After just a couple minutes, Matt told Kylie that we had to go, so others could meet with Snow White. Snow White looked up and said, "We are not done yet." It was so cute and funny that a princess told Matt what the deal was....I guess she was just preparing him for all the days that Kylie will do that :)

Anyhow, the visit was so great and Matt snapped so many pics that if we scanned through them quickly, it was like a flip book where you could see the whole story of their visit unfold. It was adorable! Onto some pics:

I SOOOO Love how Kylie reached out to Snow White!

Happy tears for us!

Let the talking begin...

...look at those pretty pink toes!

My favorite part....Snow White touched Kylie's nose and then Kylie did it right back! Holy cow...such awesome interaction with someone new! Okay, so Snow White is a well-known princess, but was absolutely incredible to see this!

So precious!

Our hotel was just 15 minutes or so away from Disney, so we decided to go back and rest for a bit. Once we were rested up we went back to the park. So below is part 2 of our visit.

We just had to go back and visit the princesses again...there was no wait the 2nd time was great! It appears that we only took pics with Cinderella this time, but it was fun! I snuck in on this one, because well...Cinderella is such a classic and I was living through Kylie just a tad :)

A pic of all 3 of us with the Disney Castle in the background

I got a clip of Kylie and Matt on the Dumbo ride. See if you can spot them!

We traded off with another family taking pics of one another on Dumbo

We were planning on heading back to some more attractions, until we saw people already camping out early for the Electrical Parade. We thought we would find a spot too and stay late for the parade and the fireworks too. I am so glad we did, because just look at the joy on Kylie's face:

Tinkerbell...Kylie's favorite!

I just love how her face it just lit up with amazement!

Totally crying as I see this pic...she was so surprised and loved everything she saw!

Now I know why they say this is the place where dreams come true!

This was on the plane on our way back...Kylie let Matt put earphones in ear her ears...such a huge thing for her!

It was an amazing experience that we will never forget. Kylie still talks about going to the Disney Castle, seeing the princesses, Tinkerbell flying down from the castle, and many many more memories. Loved the experience and all the memories we created in such a truly magical place!
