Make a Wish sent Jaylie a calendar that she could count down the days till the trip. She never missed a day! It was great!
Here are pictures from the trip!!
The kids so excited for take off. The girls giggled and loved it when the plane took off and it was bumpy! They thought it was like a fun ride :)
Every night at the village they had a different activity/party. Our first night was Winter Wonderland. You could sit on Santa's lap and then get a present, go on a carriage ride, meet characters, have snow cones, do crafts, etc. All the nightly activities were awesome, there was always music and a dj and dancing. The kids loved it!
Kip and the kids on a carriage ride.
There was a carousel at the village. The kids rode it at least once a day, usually several times :)
Jaylie got kissed by Ariel and Snow White. Breklyn got one from Snow White too.
She loved it!
They loved getting their autographs and taking pictures with them. It was sooo fun to see them so excited. Its the best thing as a parent to see your child so happy.
At the end they did a parade and danced around. Ariel came and got Jaylie and they led the line together. This Ariel was awesome and really took to Jaylie since Jaylie wore an Ariel dress and told her she was her favorite. She was great with her!
Our waiter was great too. I love Crew's cheesy smile faces.
We went over to Magic Kingdom after the lunch.
Carousel at Magic Kingdom
The castle looked so cool turning colors at night.
We stayed late to watch the night firework show, it was great! Crew and Breklyn both fell asleep and Jaylie was so tired that she was expressionless during the whole thing. It was late and it had been a really eventful day.
Day 3: We started off at the village going to the Castle of Miracles.
Castle of Miracles.
This tree outside the castle would snore all the time:)
This is the box where you put the star for the star fairy to come get.
I love all the stars on the ceiling, it was really cool.
Inside the castle she got to make pillows. This owl in the tree lead her through steps and they appeared in the trunk of the tree. It was neat.
Then we were off to Islands of Adventure.
Feeding Crew to the dino
Harry Potter castle. I am not a Harry Potter fan, but this castle was amazing and the ride was so fun. I really enjoyed it!
Jaylie and Kip rode this ride, Jaylie loved it and still talks about how fun it was!
Back at the village they had a birthday party for Mr. Clayton, this big bunny rabbit. He is the mayor of the village. The girls were so into it. Everyone hid and then popped out for the surpise party.
The next day, we went back to the Castle of Miracles to find where the star fairy put her star. They did an amazing little video she watched and it showed where her star was.
Its up in one of those star clusters :)
On the safari in Animal Kingdom.
Crew after he ate a snow cone back at the nightly village party.
The next day we had breakfast then got ice cream before we went to the park. I miss all that ice cream! haha! This character from a show was at the village so we went and met him then we went to Magic Kingdom again.
Holding pascal that they had.
This guy was the best peter pan ever! He played with the girls for a while and was soo cute with them and taught them how to fly!

Here are more pictures from the park that day. I took some with our camera and we got the photographers at the parks to take pictures. Thats why they are not always in order. I'm pulling them from a few diff places :)
Jaylie loves Ariel so much!
We went back to the village and they had a swim party. They had bbq poolside and lots of fun games, free shirts, and prizes for the kids. It was one of the funnest nights!
Jaylie doing the chicken dance. We took a TON of video and got some cute video of the kids dancing.
My little surfers
Crew loved dancing and spinning! This kid is all about the thrills and being crazy!
These next pictures are from one of the nights at the village. They had a Halloween theme with face painting, crafts, and trick or treating. After that we played miniature golf. It was all of the kids first time and they loved it!
Girls their faces painted. Another neat thing about the village is that most of the workers are volunteers. There was a whole group of college friends who came down from Indiana for a week and half and were at the village all day. So neat!
Crew showing us his wand he made for crafts.
I got a shot the next morning of the back of the wings.
This day we saw Mickey and Minnie at the village then went to Universal Studios.
A picture of us at breakfast.
These chipmunk statues are in the theatre where Mickey and Minnie were.
Kip used to love The Simpsons when we were first married so we had to get a pic with them.
I took this picture for my Mom because she loves Betty Boop.
All the kids loved seeing Dora. Crew loves watching Dora and he got so excited.
Marry Poppins. The girls had no clue who she was. We need to watch it together.
Our last day in Florida we stayed at the Village and did horse back riding and miniature golf.
The kids all got cowboy hats after riding the horses. We bought Jaylie a Give Kids The World t shirt and she wanted to wear it so bad. It was too big on her, so she just wore it with leggings and she thought she looked so good. She is so cute!
Breklyn posing by this painted wall. Such a cool wall.
We played mini golf one last time and they all got sick of wearing the hats and it was hard to carry all our stuff plus the 3 hats, so I wore them all :) I looked so silly.
Jaylie did really good actually. She enjoyed it lots!
We got lays the night before too, so the kids had Kip wear one. There were some really pretty spots with the fountains and stuff. I wish I would have had my good camera. We took our old one on the trip and it is horrible compared to the new one. Lots of red eye, blurry pics, and not as clear. We didn't want our new one to get stolen or anything so we didn't bring it. I am glad I have some though.
Our last ice cream before we left
