What's better than being with a child during their first trip to Disney? Being with your friend from college (and the daddy of said child) on his first trip to Disney!

My friends, Jeff, Abbey, and Reed, were in Orlando for a LifeWay conference. Since I am just a hop, skip, and a jump from there I took a half day off on Thursday and then a whole day on Friday. I have known Jeff and Abbey since they were 18 (I have always been much older and wiser...I was 19!) Since they live in Nashville these days, we don't get to see as much of each other as we would like. Of course they would tell me, "If you would move to Nashville, you could see us all the time!" We try to get together at least yearly. I saw them last year in October, so we basically had less than 2 days to catch up. I also finally had the chance to meet their friend Bill, who apparently stops by my blog on occasion. (Hey Bill!)

In that time we rode the teacups (well, they did, I know better than to get on that ride), Dumbo, Winnie the Pooh, It's a Small World, Space Mountain, Aladdin, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, the People Mover, the carousel, and I am sure I am forgetting some. Obviously Reed didn't ride all those case you thought we smuggled a 20 month old on Space Mountain!

I think the general consensus was the Reed's favorite part was the night parade and the fireworks. He was mesmerized by both. I was really impressed that he didn't cry at the pops and bangs of the fireworks. It might of helped that there was funnel cake too!

As it is everyday at was a great and of course "magical" day!
