Little Piggy

last night while Kate was eating dinner I gave her her first pigtails! She looked so cute! Kate has a major mullet and thought it was time to do something about it. Only problem is she won't let me put anything on her head. It is probably my fault because I never put headbands or flowers in her hair as baby and is now not used to it. So these only lasted in her hair for about 2 minutes but was able to get some cute pics. After I put them in her hair she kept laughing and thought it was the funniest thing ever. I love that girl.

most magical place on earth

Last week was the very first Wray family reunion! My dad's family has been having one every year for over 25 years and we thought it was a good time to start our own. Where else to kick off our reunion....DISNEYWORLD! Some how I got put in charge of planning it and so of course that is what I would choose. This year we switched it up though. Everytime my family has ever been to Disneyworld, we stay on property at this place called Coronado Springs. We love it. But we wanted to stay at a hotel that had a suite big enough so we could all fit in the same room, only problem is there are only a couple of hotels on property that have rooms big enough. We decided on staying at the new Bay Lake tower, right next to the contemporary and we were not disappointed!! It is steps away from magic kingdom and we could watch the fireworks from our room everynight! We also got to use the monorail which was great!
I was actually having an anxiety attack about going because I thought it would be a nightmare with Kate. A 5 hour plane ride a 15 month old don't go hand in hand. But once the plane ride was over all my worries were gone and glad to have Kate with us. We spent 5 awesome days playing and spending time together. We also ate and ate and ate. When you stay on property you can get the disney dining plan which gives you 2 meals a day and a snack but these meals are massive and you get entree, dessert and drink. We had some awesome food though. Unfortunately my sister, Angela, had to be a wheelchair the whole time but actually turned out in our favor as we could to skip most lines. It was great to get away and be together as a family. Here are some pictures from our trip (mostly stolen from my sister because my camera didn't work most of the time and she took 600 pictures. thanks sis)eating at one of our favorite dinner's, Ohana
