The Opreyland Hotel

Our plan was to get on the road super early and get home but we spent the morning before Peter's flight walking around the hotel. It was just beautiful and we enjoyed the morning so much. We had a balcony from our room and just wished we had been there longer to really enjoy it.

Off to Tennessee

We left Disney very early and had a mission to make it to Nashville for the night. As soon as we got to Tennessee in the mountains we let the kids get out and run around for a bit. We did not stop much on the way home.

On top of the "mountain".

The kids loved the mountains. It took us a bit of driving through them for the kids to notice how pretty the drive was. They were very involved in their DS games or videos.

We had planned to stay right near the airport but made a detour for The Opryland Hotel. It was so much fun.

Tate after he picked apart his pizza because he did not like but had to eat it to get dessert. Truly put so much energy into picking it apart we could not help laughing at him.
Tate posing on the walkway to go to the Godiva store. It took us a while to make it there.

Hanging out and having dessert.
Posing with the "band" after dinner.

Check out how long this hallway is. Tate and Ellie would have run down it had we let them. We did not.

Goodbye Disney!

We spent our last day at Animal Kingdom and made a day of it.

Learning about bugs.

Off to conservation station to pet the animals!

We went to dinner at Animal Kingdom Lodge and had a great Dinner with the Grimm Family. This is the only picture I have of the dinner -- thinking it is because we had so much fun I forgot about taking pictures. The kids were all great and we had a great time.

Picture Day!

We started the off really early at the Grand Floridian for picture day. The kids had on some of my favorite outfits ever -- love how they match.

I have always wanted one of these beach shots.

Tate making a sandcastle.

Daddy going for the record sandcastle.

Still posing for pictures at the Magic Kingdom.

EB so happy at Pinocchio's Grotto for lunch.

Getting ready for Big Thunder Mountain. All the kids were going together on the ride and were so excited.
Looking back before we take off!

This picture cracks me up -- a few days ago, Tate was too scared to go on the ride and now he was the only one with his hands up loving it.
Off to the Island for some fun!
Fire away!
Tate would have stayed forever if we would have let him.

My two mouseketeers.
After dinner the kids did not want to go to the Magic Kingdom and wanted to stay on the beach at the Grand Floridian. Not sure if you can see Tate's volcanos but he worked for so long on them and was so proud.

On the way out Daddy had a great eye and found a big bullfrog.

Posing for a picture -- if there was only some horses to take us away.

Perfect end to a perfect day!
