Jacob's 3rd birthday!!!
Well, instead of having a traditional party on Jacob's actual birthday we decided to show him a little magic. For us, last minute plans and spontaneity often yeild the best result and this was no exeption.
What can I say? Its Disney... they do magic well.
What they don't do however, is control the Florida climate in June. Yeah, it was hot. Yeah, it was humid. Yeah, doing this while 7-1/2 months pregnant was a bit on the crazy side.
We did it anyway... and we are glad.
Its hard to pick a favorite moment during this trip. Seeing Jacob giving his "friends" Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto hugs was among the coolest things we have ever seen, but my favorite moment was probably hearing Jacob's reaction to the fireworks over Cinderella castle.
You can hear some of his thoughts shouted with joy and wonder at the end of this 17 minute video. Sitting on my shoulders during the fireworks display, I had Jacob convinced that the fireworks were all for him... a celebration of his birthday.
"Its magic, Dad! Its for me! Its my birthday!"
