Thanks for checking in and seeing what The Vogt family has been up to.  I have started a new web page through Shutterfly.   For 2 main reasons- 1. so I do not have to upload pictures twice, once to the blog and another time to the photo website.  and 2- so family and friends can order pictures if they like them.  Please visit our new site!

Hollywood Studios

We spent the next day at Hollywood Studios.  
Ty and Jack playing Ring around the "tree".
On the Backlot tour.

I love this one with Tyler covering his eyes.
I think Jack's favorite part of the week was the balloon man.  I think Jack would have followed him all over the park saying "bbllll" (balloon) if we would have let him. 

Tyler watching the parade and Jackson dancing in the streets.

We got under cover just before it started to pour, and it worked out well, because the boys had just fallen asleep.

Toy Story Mania 4D ride.
Neil, Rich, and the balloon man.

Disney- here we come (again)

One of Rich's good friends (and Jackson's Godfather) from New York was in town for one of his daughter's cheer competitions.  So, we headed over to Disney, our home away from home.  And of course the first thing the boys did at the hotel was make themselves right at home by jumping and climbing on every surface they could.
We met up with The Stafford family at Downtown Disney.  And Tyler had to make his usual stops-  The Mr. Potatoe Head store and The Lego store.
Say "ccchhheeeeeeessssseeeeee"
The next day, we met Neil and his family at their hotel-The Polynesian and grabbed some free breakfast from their breakfast bar- thanks guys!  Then jumped the monorail for The Magic Kingdom.

Jackson with his cool dude shades on.
Pirates of the Caribbean ride.  How did Rich get stuck up front alone with all the kids?  We should have made a run for it when we had the chance!
Our traditional after-ride sword fight.
Tyler stealing Jack's cheerios.
Ellie and Lily were so good with both boys.  Tyler loved the attention and "hanging" out with the older kids.
Taking a break to watch the show.
Jack's turn to ride Daddy;s shoulders.
Tyler and Jackson decided to rearrange the toys at one of the little booths that were set up outside of the Buzz Lightyear ride.  I am sure that they loved us!
They had a remote control green alien out that the boys had fun playing with.

What's a trip to Disney without a Mickey ice cream?

Jack getting in on the ice cream action.

Tyler and Ellie on the Buzz Lightyear ride.
We took a little break and went back to The Polynesian for a quick dip in the pool.  
Jack finally crashed that night at the park with his hand in his cheerio cup- after about 2 1/2 hours of screaming.

Car ride home

On our way home from Bayfront Park, I sat in the back seat and was able to play with Jackson and Tyler.  Tyler passed out soon after we started home, but Jackson was up and ready to play.  So Gram played peek-a-boo with his blanket while I took some pictures of my cutie pie.

He loves his blankies that Gigi made for him!!!

Bayfront Park

We took Rich's parents down to Bayfront Park in Sarasota.  It is a beautifu lPark right on the bay in downtown.  There is a big playground and fountains for the kids to play in.  The boys had so much fun.
Swinging on one of the many swings they have set out around the park.

Peek-a-boo Jack!

After a quick change of clothes, we headed to St. Armands Circle for a little shopping and some ice cream.  Tyler wanted to "relax" at the Shore surf shop.

Jackson has become quite the little eater.  He loves ice cream and I don't think Gramps was getting it to him fast enough!

Thanks for a great visit, Gram and Gramps!!!  We miss you!
