Magic Kingdom

We've been to Magic Kingdom a bunch of times before, but we never noticed before that most of the rides are designed so that a baby can easily be brought on. Without a baby, I guess you don't pay much attention. But when you're traveling with a baby, and you see all the other babies on line, it becomes obvious. It was a pleasant surprise.

So Violet's first theme park ride was Snow White's Scary Adventures (which aren't that scary), and she seemed to like it enough. Ditto for Pirates of the Caribbean, the Haunted Mansion, It's A Small World, Tomorrowland Transit Authority, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin (which is a laser target-shooting ride where she could play with the lever that spun the car around, thus ruining daddy's aim). She sat patiently through the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor and Mickey's PhilharMagic. But I think her favorite ride (judging by her bouncing and laughing) was being pushed around the park in her stroller.

She didn't even mind the lines, of which there were plenty, it being the day before Thanksgiving. We spent over 12 hours at the park and didn't get to do everything, but at least it was a gorgeous day, and Violet behaved perfectly throughout. Sue's parents live half an hour away, so there's no question we'll be back to do what she missed the first time.

The rest of the week we pretty much did nothing except eat turkey, play bridge, and drink lots of wine. Which was fine by me.

Also, Violet was a perfect doll on the plane, so we were worrying about nothing. Though airport security was still a pain in the ass. They made us take Violet's shoes off. But then didn't blink at the 8oz bottles of formula we brought through. I don't understand them at all.

(PS - Here are photos of our day at Magic Kingdom if you want to see...)
