Not So Scary Halloween Party

Last year Ben had some work training to do in Florida at the end of October so we decided to take advantage of the timing and take the kids to the Not So Scary Halloween party at Disney World. They had so much fun that we decided to go back this year. Of course Cambria had to be Sleeping Beauty, her current favorite princess and Magnus chose to be a pirate. We stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge and had a fantastic time.

The kids loved running across this bridge that ran over the lobby

The lobby; our room was through the cave

The "towel monkey" that the cleaning lady made especially for Mangus. She said he reminded her of her grandson

We got to watch the animals at night with night vision scopes

Cambria was dancing so exuberantly that the top of her dress wouldn't stay up

She loved the mad hatter

Quick Trip To DC

Ben had to go to Washington DC for a couple of days last week for a conference and we decided we'd all go down. Magnus has been dying to go back to the Museum of Natural History so we made that our priority. We didn't have time to do much else, but we all had a great time.

Waiting for Daddy to park. They were so excited!

The dinosaurs are always Magnus' favorite

Can you tell that they didn't really want to smile?
