My brave boy (and girl)


This is a post I promised to Parker in commemoration of his first trip on the Matterhorn! The boy is terrified of the "little kid roller coaster" in Toon Town, but couldn't wait to jump on what I think is a far scarier (and bumpier!) ride with Daddy this afternoon. He loved it so much that he had to take me back for a spin too. And of course, once little brother conquered his fears, big sister quickly dismissed hers and also joined in the fun! Why do I get the feeling that this is a sign of things to come?

How cute! Parker looks like he's about to jump out of his skin with excitement.

Wow, that's very brave! We took Ava on the toon town rollercoaster at Disney World when she was 3. Yeah, that didn't go over so well.

Way to go Parker!

Tony took Caleb on Matterhorn this Christmas. He hated it! He also went on the Toon Town Coaster with his little sister. She loved it and I think that convinced him that he could be brave, too. Sometimes sibling competition can be good...

That is brave! I love that ride, and we didn't get to go on it when we were there! Maybe in five more years! :)
