Disney World

A few months ago, there was a Powerade demonstration outside of Walmart with Boozer from the Jazz signing autographs. Zachary wanted to stop and meet him. They had sport competitions-Basketball, Football and Baseball. Eddy and Zachary played the different sports & Eddy won out of his age group. They told him his name would go into a drawing to win a prize. A couple of months later, we got a Fed Ex that he had won a trip to Orlando to compete in these sports again with people who had won in 16 other states. Eddy represented Utah. We decided to take the whole family since we had 4 free flights and Hilton points accumulated from Eddy's work travels. The free trip included two flights, hotel stay at Disney's Contemporary hotel (right next to the Magic Kingdom & the monorail goes right through the hotel), food, spending cash & Eddy and Jesse got to compete with pros from each of the sports & race cars.

These are some of the pictures and Favorites from Monday to Saturday at the parks!

Magic Kingdom (Monday)

While Eddy and Jesse went to Disney's Wide World of Sports Fantasy Camp (Free trip Eddy won), I took the younger kids to Magic Kingdom. We stayed in Fantasyland and Toontown for most of the day and then hit Tomorrowland. We went back to the hotel to swim and rest for the late afternoon and then came back to the park for the parade, fireworks and hit Jungle Cruise, Pirates, Haunted Mansion at night.
