I finally found my camera's usb cable. Whew! I was getting a little worried that my Disney pictures would just live forever inside my camera and never come back out.
Chris' mom and dad gave us tickets to Magic Kingdom for Christmas. The kids were so excited! Well, I was pretty excited too. We haven't been in a really long time and both of our kids are old enough now to really enjoy it and remember it.
We stayed from open to close and did every ride and show on our can't-miss-it list, which is pretty great. If you have ever been to Disney, you understand how long the lines can be. There are times of the year when you can spend pretty much your whole day waiting in the lines and end up going on only a handful of rides! Bleah.
Anyway, I only had my little (not-so-great) camera with me and was so worried about my shadows and reflections assignment that I mostly was panicking and trying to take interesting pictures for my class.
That's unfortunate because now, I only have a few pictures of my own children at Disney (forehead slap).
Wanna see 'em anyway?
Thought so.

Waiting to get in the gates:

Tom Sawyer Island:

Picking out some souvenirs:

Driving rocket ships (I was in the ship sitting behind Emma and turned the camera backwards, over my head, to snap the picture of Chris and Drew):

Formerly the WEDway People Mover, now the Tomorrowland Transit Authority:

A Brave Knight and his Trusty Steed lead the charge on the carousel:

Imprisoned by the evil emperor Zurg:

We had so much fun doing this. I love spending time with my family anyway, but just the four of us spending such a special day together was over-the-top fantastic.
Thanks, Mom and Dad S!

Looks like fun! I look forward to taking the boys one day, but when they are old enough to remember it.

Looks like fun but you still can't get me back to Disney!!!

I'm with Amy. I transition back into an 8-year-old every time I'm there (perhaps not too big of a leap, come to think of it).

Hey! I forget that I have to check back to see if you respond to my comment. . .der!! So, I have to say you are just plain silly and over critical of your work. . .you constantly impress him (and me) with your pictures ; ) Not to say I'm "somebody" (haha!). . .I just appreciate photography (obviously!).

As for me? No, I have been ultra lazy. That's what I miss about not being in the class, because then you make yourself get it done instead of just thinking 'yes, I will try that'. I took a (very) few pictures around Christmas time. . .some with my new 50 mm lens. . .but not many. I am going to get on the ball. . .I am, I am, I am!!
