Words cannot express how much we love you and how very proud we are of each of you. Each time you open this book, may this book bring back many wonderful memories of our time together........and, also, bring out the "kid" in you! Much Love, Dad & Mom
2: Our five day trip to Walt Disney World was a fun filled adventure that included trips to several theme parks including Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. We enjoyed many wonderful parades, shows, character meals, and, of course, many fun rides! It was a truly magical trip that created many lasting memories for our family.

17: Got a little wet on Kali River Rapids.
18: Hollywood Studios
19: Two of Jacob's favorite places were the Star Wars 3D ride and the Jedi Training Camp. Dancing, seeing the stars and eating ice cream were all part of the fun, too.
20: Epcot was very special. The favorite ride for all of us was Soarin', a simulated hang glider ride over the state of California. Test Track was another favorite among some. This simulated excursion of GM's testing of vehicles was fast moving and exciting, but a bit scary. Spaceship Earth, which is the original ride of Epcot in the big golf ball, was a good ride to slow down the pace a bit. | EPCOT
21: The kids took this photo. | Always make time for snacks. | Jacob and Mommy enjoying the ride "The Land". | Good Times
22: We were sad to see our trip come to an end, but it was time to head back home. We'll be back sometime soon.
