We took Alex out of school this past week and headed to Orlando to spend some time together as a family, see some of our friends, and take the boys to Walt Disney World. This was the first time we had been back since we moved from Orlando to Arkansas and it was so good to go back. We left some great friends there and we miss them like crazy. Many of them walked though the beginning of our adoption journey with us, prayed for us, and even financially helped us bring Miles home. It was so fun getting to introduce them to the little boy they have been praying for.

Our plan was to do one Disney park while we were there. We didn't want Miles to get too tired or overwhelmed. We spent Wednesday at Magic Kingdom and Miles loved it. (When he wasn't taking a nap. Seriously, the kid can nap anywhere!) His favorite ride was 'It's A Small World' and he loved the parade. Since we have been to Disney so many times, it was fun to watch Miles try and take it all in. After we did all we wanted to at Magic Kingdom, we ended up hopping over to Epcot for a couple of hours before heading back to the house.

The only other park we did last week was Universal's Islands of Adventure. Miles did all the Dr. Seuss rides then fell asleep. (I told you, he loves his naps :) Alex and I rode a few roller coasters, then we walked through The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Now, we aren't Harry Potter people, but it was pretty amazing. I told Keith that I now feel like I need to read the books so I will have a better understanding why grown adults, hundreds of them, were wearing caps, costumes, buying wands, and standing in looong lines to buy butterbeer. But, that's what I love about the parks, they make you feel like a kid again.
