We are staying at the Toy Story section of the All Star Movies resort. Of course Xan loves walking through Andy's room.

See below for pictures of our day in Epcot.

It's the first day and I'm exhausted. Sounds like a successful day at Disney :)

For Xan's 3rd birthday we decided on a trip to Disney World. We arrived yesterday and hit the ground running fast today.

At 11:30 p.m. Xan was still asking "can we ride that one more time?". He was having so much fun, how could I say no. It has been a wonderful day.

This mostly is a note for me so I don't forget. When we walked into the park this morning, Mickey was on the castle's stage performing. Xan saw him and gasped. He started yelling for him. Mickey! Mickey! He was trying to get his attention. That moment made the trip for me. It was all worth it for those precious seconds. Xan was so excited :)

Bonne Annee!!! (Happy New Year)

We spent the afternoon on the Montmartre hill in Paris and had lunch (or dinner not sure) in the cutest cafe.

Xan gets a gummy worm every time he smiles for a picture and he was in a picture taking mood today (or a gummy worm mood). He asked to "cheese" for me a lot today.

And lastly, we rang in the new year right next to the Eiffel Tower. It's a good thing that our apartment is so close. It started pouring rain at about 10 pm and we where able to hide out there until about 11:55. We braved the rain and took the 3 minute walk to the tower. At midnight the whole Eiffel Tower started to sparkle. People shot off fireworks all around us. It was a great evening.

Chase me B!!

Xan was on the move today. He spent a lot of the day either chasing Brittany or getting her to chase him. I just hope he sleeps well tonight.

Xan chased her all around Versailles and down the street in Paris.

Rodin, Monet and Renoir

It was a day of culture today in Paris. We visited the Rodin and d'Orsay museums for a little sculpture and impressionists. To balance that out we had dinner at McDonald's.

Rounding out the day we climbed the Arc de Triomphe and strolled down the Champs-Élysées.
