For spring break this year, we splurged and went to Disneyworld with our friends Dan and Lyndsay Howell. It was soooo much fun! Ezra wasn't the only one who LOVED it--I am still trying to convince Tanner to upgrade our four-day passes to annual passes (only $80 more, for the two of us!)! But we'll see. Here is what we did:

Waiting for the shuttle that would take us to Animal Kingdom!
Ezra looks like he's awesome at waiting but about two seconds
after this picture, he climbed down to run around in the plants,
play in the dirt, and examine the trashcan.
Lyndsay and her cute baby Kyler on the safari ride. Oh this baby!
So cute he kills me.
Safari ride! Basically a ride through a zoo.
In Animal Kingdom, there walls with animals on them
everywhere. Ezra was a fan.
Too tired for pictures.
Getting all ready to watch the Bugs Life movie. He kept his 3D
glasses on the whole show!
Ezra's favorite place in Hollywood was the Honey, I Shrunk the
Kids! playground. 
He probably went down this leaf slide about 50 times. And he
didn't want to go anywhere else, even in the playground. While
he was playing, I looked around and found a couple other things
he would like, but I had to carry him kicking and screaming away
from the leaf slide to get there.
One of those things was this water wall.
Water trickled down from the top into these
holes. He loved it.
We were NOT experts at the cars. Ezra wanted to "drive," but
he doesn't quite know how yet, so we kept bumping against the
metal and jerking back and forth. Not his favorite ride, or mine.
We loved the elephant water area in the
Ezra's all-time favorite ride: Small World!
There were so many caribou and yaks and
water buffalo and he found them all: "MOO!"
He loved all the birds and the hot-air balloons
and generally just everything. We went on
that ride twice.
He also loved the Dumbo ride. He actually liked watching it more than riding it,
not that he was scared, but he liked being able to see the elephants more than
being in the elephan
The Jungle Cruise was another huge success. Ezra loved the
lions, the elephants, and the hippos.
Tom Sawyer's island was the cutest! We ate lunch in a gazebo by
the water and then played at a couple of the forts. Ezra became a
master at checkers while we were there.
Last thing: Ezra found out about pockets.
He was pulling at his pants for a while and
I thought his diaper or shorts were bothering
him. And then, he finally got both hands in.
Cool little kid.
