I was 25 and Jared was 8. A little over a year later, we moved to Orlando, FL.
This was also Jared's first time to fly in a plane and I was terrified he would be scared. When they called it was time for us to board, I handed him his ticket and he handed it to the attendant like he was a pro. We walked down the ramp to board the plane and took our seats and he fastened his seat belt and got settled in his seat, just like he had done it a hundred times before.
As the plane was taxied to the runway and it started to gain speed to take off, he grabbed my arm as I do not think he was expecting that. I told him if he was afraid to just sit back and close his eyes and pretend we were in the car or to look out at the window and watch as the airport got smaller and smaller.
"Oh, I'm not afraid," He says, "I thought you might be! I think its fun! Like a ride!"

Day One: Magic Kingdom
|Cinderella's Castle was being a bit of remodeling.|
|Jared was pooped, so he took a break in Minnie's chair. I'm sure she didn't mind.|
Thinking she might be with Mickey, we walked over to his house. He was not home either, but his door was opened, so we took a look inside.
|Mousekosh. Love it.|
|Mickey's Mickey Pumpkins.|
We then learned it was time for the afternoon parade, so we headed to go check it out.
|I just like this before I just happen to snap the picture just at the right moment to where it looks like she is doing the damsel in distress, I am going to faint thing.|
We then headed off to the Haunted Plantation. This is my all time favorite ride and I was not leaving without Jared getting to ride it too.
|This is Jared in line at the POTC waiting very impatiently.|
