The fourth or fifth day we were there, I started going through all of the pictures on my camera and noticed that I didn't have many from my favorite park, The Magic Kingdom. I panicked. I almost started crying and told Scott that we had to make another trip over there so that I could take a ton of pictures of all of my favorite places.
Scott had already bought a Captain Jack Sparrow hat and had been wearing that every day to every park we visited. He was really getting into the 'zone.' We decided to be a family of pirates that day at the Magic Kingdom. I bought a set of Pirates of the Caribbean Mickey ears and then saw the perfect hat for Nick: a set of Goofy ears with a bandanna and gold earring. He did his best Seinfeld impression that day..."but I don't want to be a pirate!"
Almost exactly like that, except for the Spanish subtitles, that is. ;)
Scott told him that he would wear the hat and smile. He said, "you want to make your mother happy, don't you?" He reluctantly put on the hat, but wasn't happy....at first.

|Still annoyed, but warming up a bit|
|The happy pirate family in front of the castle.|
|Starting to relax and get into the zone.|
I'm hoping to go again in 2013 after the Fantasyland renovation is complete. Is it a coincidence that it is also the same year Nick graduates from college? Hmmmmmmm........ Must. save. money. NOW.
*Nick aka The Boy....he will always be "the boy" to us, but he's 20, so I'm thinking I can start calling him 'Nick' on here now.
