On Monday we got out early since we had a big day ahead of us. We drove up to Orlando to Blizzard Beach. As per usual, Vanessa didn't want to go because she didn't know what she was in for. Right down to I don't want to get into my bathing suit. Once we were changed and we went over to the kiddie area and the mood changed. I got her a life jacket and she said,"Can I put that on!" Why yes! Let me help you.
She had a fantastic time in the Kiddie Area. She was able to do all the slides herself. She was even able to go down the tube slide and get out of the water with her tube and walk it up to the beginning. We did the Lazy River ride but it got a little long for her. We snacked and had ice cream and went over to the wave pool. The waves were fun. Vanessa was determined to tackle them alone even though they were way over her head. Grandma took her since my pregnant body couldn't handle it.
We went down the family tube. We got up there by chair lift and went down in this tube with a bottom and lots of handles. Vanessa wasn't very sure. She was checking out our reactions. We asked her if she wanted to go back and she was up for that. She had a fun time the second time saying, "I'm getting dizzy." but giggled and screamed all the way down this time.
Back to the Kiddie area for a little while. Vanessa was having a great time until one of the life guards told her not to do something and then she sulked. I went to get her to leave but she wanted to stay. Grandma bargained with her for one more ride down the slide and it worked.
After Blizzard Beach we went to downtown disney, it was fun and busy. We had a horrible dinner but a great dessert.
We drove over to Great Grandpa's for a couple of nights. Vanessa watched the iPod the whole way so thankfully she did not nap. She was out like a light in no time.
