Day 4 - falling behind on the journal
As usual, I'm falling behind on my journal and the days are starting to run together so I'll just write about the highlights and fill in the details as I remember them. Max is still in a power struggle about going on rides. At this point he's even refusing the most kid friendly rides they have. He even refused to go on the Little Mermaid ride, which he went on the day before and liked it. And then at the same time said that he wanted to go on the Indiana Jones ride, which Jacob already backed out of. Max wasn't tall enough so I didn't get to call his bluff and see if he'd really go on it, but he probably would have. On Tom Sawyer's Island there is a cave called Dead Man's Grotto that had skeletons and booby traps and he just loved it. He would even touch the treasures on purpose to get the traps to go off. This is the same kid who walked off of the Winnie the Pooh ride and said, "I'm never going on that again, too scary". Ella is having a great time dancing every time she gets the chance. She loves the parades and had a lot of fun dancing at the Phineas and Ferb dance party. When she did the limbo the stick was way over her head, but she still arched her back way. Back like the big kids were doing. Ella loves the rides and hasn't found any that she doesnt want to go on. Shes really irritated when she isnt tall enough. Zoe is enjoying this crazy new world. She loves all of the comotion and attention, but she's often startled by the unexpected events going on around her. Her other complaint is that she doesn't get to crawl around enough. She's eating everything in sight though and is irritated that we won't give her any of our desserts. Jacob is just having the best time. He loves to plan out what we are going to do next and there are very few rides that he isn't willing to go on at least once. I think Tower of Terror is the only one so far. I really like our hotel room. Even out of the other Disney Vacation Club rooms that we have stayed in, this is one of the nicest. I really like the decorations and having a view of the park is great. It's neat to see all of the activity that takes place in the middle of the night, or at least early in the morning when whichever kid decides to be the early bird that day wakes us up.
