Saturday on our Mother and Son, one on one date, we headed to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. Although I carried my big camera, I ended up taking more photos with my iphone.
I am just a Disney lover all around. I hate the crowds, the spandex, people eating a leg of turkey and the heat, but there is something just magical about Disney and I love to go there with my kids.
Chase and I went to Disney in Paris in 2010 and then he went a few times when he was younger, but he has gone the least of all of my children.
He seemed completely unfamiliar with it all.
He could only remember a few rides and so we hit it hard, riding all of the big rides first and then making our way to fantasyland.
We definitly got wet on Splash Mountain.
I was shocked at how few options there are for eating healthy there, but I managed to find my salads and my fruit. I made it a goal right from the “get-go” to find healthy food. I am on week 4 of changing my health, I feel a lot better, but there is no noticeable difference except internally.
I am completely aware now when I eat sugar and feel almost sick and bloated. My blood sugar stability is more excellent then 4 weeks ago and I am actually starting to crave veggies….on a regular basis now.
Chase had no problem joining the foodies at Disney! Ha ha
I can feel the small differences but I have yet to see any external.
Back to the trip! The whole day was just a great day to talk and ask questions.
When Chase was little we had several moments when he “needed a sword,” I thought this was funny after we came off of the Pirates of The Caribbean, he headed right to the swords again at nearly 16 years old.
My favorite part of the day at Disney is the Monster’s Inc Laugh Floor which we went through twice. I was selected to make a fool of myself on the big screen as they select audience members to participate. (Not by choice) I was laughing so hard, I could hardly do it.
My other favorite is the Electrical Light Parade. We had a great time watching it and wrapping up our day.
One on One dates are so important because you not only gain so much information from your kids but also build a stronger bond. Going to Magic Kingdom just reminded me of how fast time is going by. It seemed just like yesterday, he was a little kid and we were chasing him around. Oh, I wish I could stop time!
