Carolina Beach, NC, USA - 4th July 2012

By: JaymeC

In the morning it was time to get up up up! And off to our surprise visit to the beach! I finally got to see the Atlantic Ocean!

This beach is a special one where there's nothing built up near it. You can only drive out onto it and you have to have a special pass (and four wheel drive!) Jayme's car can't make it out here, but her friend invited her out for the Fourth of July.

See all the trucks?

And behind us are the dunes

And finally the Atlantic! The water was nice and warm today.

I'm sure I'll have more updates before too long!

Castle Hayne, NC, USA - 22nd July 2012

By: JaymeC

I'm sorry it's taken me so long to update, there's been so much to do!

Before our trip, we had one last plan we had to make, which was to celebrate JaymeC's son's birthday. It's the tradition in her home that on your birthday you get to pick the schedule for the whole day. So we started out at one of the local parks.

http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120715_095915.jpg
After that we headed over to a place called Monkey Joes where the kids burned off a lot of energy jumping in all the bouncy houses.

And finally we were home for some presents and cake!

Phew! One more thing done, almost time for our trip now!
More very, very soon!

Florida, USA - 29th July 2012

By: JaymeC

It was a very, very long drive down to Florida from North Carolina. But Jayme said you finally know when you're getting close because you get to stop at the Florida welcome center and have some free orange juice. And lots of people stop at the border just to get a picture next to the welcome sign!

Magic Kingdom, USA - 30th July 2012

By: JaymeC

Whew! We finally made it the whole drive to Walt Disney World! Our first day we headed to the most popular of the four parks, the Magic Kingdom.

First thing in the morning you get to see the Welcome Show at the Train Station. Mickey and some of his friends come out to welcome you to the park.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_9819.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_9834.jpg
And then the ropes are drop and you're let in! To get your first sight of the castle.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120729_161239.jpg
After that we were off. We spent most of our time up in Adventureland and Frontierland. We rode on Splash Mountain, which has a big drop at the end. Here we are in front of the Mountain you drop from.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120729_104042.jpg
We also rode Big Thunder Mountain, which is a roller coaster that looks like an old mining railroad. Jayme's son didn't like this one much so we didn't do very many other coasters throughout the week.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120804_095523.jpg
We headed to Tom Sawyer island for a bit to let the kids run around and play
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120804_110849.jpg
Then we cut through the new Storybook Circus to get to Tomorrowland. We stopped to ride Goofy's coaster there. Jayme wasn't too sure about his driving, apparently he crashed his last ride
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120729_172038.jpg
In Tomorrowland we rode the Buzz Lightyear ride
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120729_150002.jpg
And rode the People Mover which takes you around Tomorrowland to see different areas.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120729_150017.jpg
We were all worn out after our day and decided to head back to the hotel. But we had a lot of fun at Magic Kingdom! We said goodbye from the train station.

Animal Kingdom, USA - 31st July 2012

By: JaymeC

Our next day we headed over to the Animal Kingdom. Unfortunately, we didn't spend too much time here since we came mostly so Jacob could take a class about animals as part of the educational services. Here we are at the entrance!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120731_082009.jpg
And once you get inside, you see the Tree of Life as the center piece of Animal Kingdom.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120731_085348.jpg
After that we went on the Safari ride. I don't have any pictures of me on the safari, but we did zoom in to see some animals.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_0434.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_0407.jpg
After the safari class we went on a train ride
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120731_102525.jpg
And then we walked a bit and took a ride on the tricera top spin.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120731_151557.jpg
Then we headed home for the night because everyone was tired, but we'll have more soon! Two more parks to go.

More soon,
Peep

Walt Disney World Resort, USA - 1st August 2012

By: JaymeC

After a couple of days at the parks, we decided to take a 'rest' day so that we could sleep in and not walk so much. Of course, Jayme's idea of a rest day probably differs a bit from other peoples. I know it differed a bit from her husband who didn't think it was very restful at all! But we had lots of fun none-the-less. We started out with some putt-putt golf
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_123209.jpg
After that we went over to the new Art of Animation Resort. On the grounds there you can meet various characters from the movie Cars. It looks like it'd be a really need place to spend the night. They also had Nemo, Little Mermaid, and Lion King themed areas but we only went to the Cars one.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_134130.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_134134.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_134328.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_134348.jpg
After that we needed to stop for some refreshments so we headed over to the Beaches and Cream and ordered the kitchen sink. It's a good thing we all shared, because no way anyone could eat this on their own (though Jayme's son wanted to try!) It's eight scoops of icecream plus every topping in the house including a bottom layer of peanut butter and an entire can of whipped cream.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120802_161834.jpg
Even with two adults, two hungry little boys, and two toyvoyagers we couldn't finish it...
More updates soon! Two more parks to go.

EPCOT, USA - 2nd August 2012

By: JaymeC

Our next park to visit was EPCOT. Or the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. It was the second Disney park built and is probably the one with the most walking! Here we are coming in! We actually rode the ride inside the giant ball, it's called Spaceship Earth and shows you how humans have communicated through the ages.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120801_163020.jpg
After that we headed on over to the Nemo ride. After Nemo we got to meet some of the sharks from the show since they had a small play area there.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_0640.jpg
Then we stopped for a quick lunch on our way into the World Showcase. Nowhere makes it so simple to walk around the World! We had our lunch at the United Kingdom where we grabbed some fish and chips.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_0714.jpg
Then we continued on our tour visiting China
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120801_190535.jpg
Norway
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120801_190711.jpg
And Mexico
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120801_191024.jpg
I forgot to take a picture but we grabbed some dinner in Mexico then waited for the night show Illuminations to start. It was a fun show on the harbor of the World Showcase Lagoon.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_0946.jpg
Then it was time to head back and get some rest before we visited our last park!

Hollywood Studios, USA - 3rd August 2012

By: JaymeC

Our last day was at Hollywood Studios! Though Jayme keeps calling it MGM. Apparently that's what it used to be called many years ago, but then MGM and Disney stopped working together and it was renamed. We didn't do too much here since we wanted to sleep in a bit, but we did have fun! Our first stop was the Indiana Jones action show. There's Indy!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120803_112845.jpg
Here's a zoomed in for you.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_1367.jpg
Then we headed over to the Honey I Shrunk the Kids play area. Where all the humans get to feel like they're the size of a Toy Voyager! Of course, that means us toyvoyagers feel even smaller than normal!
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120803_123350.jpg
Haha, remember what this is? :)
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120803_123358.jpg
After that we headed over to see the Tower of Terror! Scariest elevator ride ever... If you wimp out at the end of the line and opt not to ride the ride you still have to take an elevator to exit, though it's not a dropping one (we hope!)
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120803_152515.jpg
We stopped in to ride the Rockin' Roller Coaster. These pictures indoors don't come out too well, but it's an indoor coaster about making it on time for a concert, so the music is going the whole time.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_20120803_180048.jpg
Finally it was time for the night show, Fantasmic. It's a battle between Mickey and all the Disney bad guys.
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_1850.jpg
http://i307.photobucket.com/albums/nn291/jaymestvs/Disney/IMG_1874.jpg
After that we headed back to the room because we were all pooped! I'm sure I'll post again from Wilmington once I get there, but I hope you liked the Disney World pictures!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is an American holiday to help us remember all the things we are thankful for.  My family celebrates with a big meal with the whole family.  We ate turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries, buns and pumpkin pie for desert.  I can't believe how much a little toy like me can eat!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-5b-LHzMqv-I/UK7PBdLiuzI/AAAAAAAAChs/iZsM_ha7t0g/s640/P1070765.JPG

I am thankful for my wonderful family and for all the friends I have met on my journey.

When we got home, it was already dark out.  And it was SNOWING!!  I'm so excited!  I just had to go out and play!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-1QQHtZCzWLk/UK7PSHDTpRI/AAAAAAAACiM/h-yMC52BnEM/s640/P1070770.JPG

It was a wonderful holiday!

Love,

Hello!

Maybe it's a little too early, but today we are decorating the Christmas tree!

I picked out an ornament to put on the tree.  This pink disco ball is very cool.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-B9eirYzke1I/UMn6Tv3hnFI/AAAAAAAACjU/G9u6P4YJIyg/s640/P1070773.JPG

With a little help from my visiting friends, the tree is looking very merry.  I can't wait until Christmas!

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-GLvNNOE98i0/UMn6lwdTL5I/AAAAAAAACjw/aZTs0LY488g/s640/P1070778.JPG

Lots of Love,
