Disney Birthday!

Emerson turned 4 on February 8, and we celebrated in style at Disney World! We spent 4 days there, staying at the Wilderness Lodge, which I have to highly recommend. It was close to the Magic Kingdom, and you took a quick 10 minute boat ride over to the park. We spent one day at the Animal Kingdom, and all the rest of our time at the Magic Kingdom. This was truly the perfect age for Em to experience the Disney magic. She's at the peak of her princess fascination, and we had breakfast with the Princesses in the Cinderella Castle on her birthday. Keith's parents joined us on that day to help celebrate, and Em had a ball riding the Teacups with Nana and watching Papaw shoot at Zurg on the Buzz Lightyear ride. There was so much to see & do, lots of walking, very short lines (thankfully!) and mostly good weather.

While in Florida, we got to see Keith's grandparents, and my Grandma as well. Em was able to swim a few times, we took long walks, chilled a little, and tried to recover from our time at Disney.

This trip was Em's last hurrah as an only child. The last birthday where every last bit of attention was focused exclusively toward her. I think I took over 500 photos of this trip, so hopefully she remembers something of it!

Glad that you all got to experience such a grand hurrah for Em's fourth b-day. She'll surely remember it well. The Wilderness Lodge looked like a great place to stay. Baby brother will enjoy his own trip to DW, down the road.
Hope Em can handle the wait to go again with him!
