Our first trip to Disney...

Wow! What an incredible week. We had the best vacation ever! The weather was perfect, the boys were great, it was awesome to have gramma and grandpa with us to share in our memories and help too! I don't think it could have been any better. My one huge concern was taking a picky eater out of his comfort zone, rearranging his schedule and expecting him to just adjust. Well, I could have saved myself a ton of anxiety because jackson did super. We did use a grocery service (thanks karena!), and had a few of jackson's staple foods delivered right to our resort for the just in case days where jackson didn't eat. That was a huge help. Jackson enjoyed his strawberry nutragrain bars and graham crackers right in our room and was comforted that some of his favorite foods were still available. The first night we were there we tried to find kids chicken nuggets because jackson loves wendy's nuggets. We found them at epcot and he tasted one and said no thanks. We were then shocked to find that he wanted the hand cut chicken breast tenders offered in the adult selection for meals at a few different places in disney! WOOHOO! Different chicken that jackson tasted and loved! The rest of the week, we just made sure that jackson was offered what he enjoyed and encouraged to try some new things, which he did and was surprised. He LOVED the Edy's hand scooped vanilla ice cream and the coke slushy. He tried but didn't care for the strawberry icee as well as some other sweets and the french fries. He ordered a mickey chocolate cake and then decided he didn't want to try it but loved the mickey suckers he picked out and enjoyed those thoroughly! Overall he did great and we all had a wonderful time! Hope you enjoy these pictures!

The pictures are so great, especially that last family pic! Looks like you had a wonderful time with some new food experiences for Jackson! We are going to be doing just one day at Magic Kingdom in a few weeks when we travel to florida to visit grandparents ( I am beyond excited to see Adalyn's reaction!)
