Magic Kingdom

Just over a week ago, the lovely Robin and I ventured out with our family (Aubrey, Kevin, Calleigh, Ryder, and Avery) to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.
Calleigh and Ryder had no idea what to expect and were clearly overwhelmed by the experience. They had never even been to an amusement park before (though I'm sure they'd been to a carnival or two). So, although the sights and sounds and activity were a sensory overload, they took it all in and had a great time (though Ryder took a couple days at least to decide whether he liked the idea of riding things, etc.). 
Calleigh and Ryder rode the Dumbo ride numerous times, along with Little Mermaid and Winnie the Pooh and more. Avery rode a few of them, too. 
Not surprisingly, one of their favorite activities was trying out all the toys and merchandise in the shops all over the place. One after another. Shop after shop. Toy after toy. 
And though they were utterly exhausted by the time the Electric Light Parade started, they saw it all, and even made it to the fireworks (on one of the nights); they watched mesmerized as the sky over the Magic Kingdom exploded with color. 

What a joy it was to be invited along to share in these kids' first visit to Walt Disney World.
