We spent the afternoon & evening at Epcot yesterday after my Grandma flew in. It’s a great time of year to go, we love the Flower & Garden festival (especially the butterfly tent!)
Taking notes.We saw some British rock in the U.K. (and got fish & chips for dinner – it was St. Patrick’s Day!)The kids loved the show.Afterwards we visited with Winnie the Pooh, walked the countries, browsed the German toy store, and got lefse for dessert before we made it back for the last show & went home.K is so impressed with pressed pennies.
Kaden / he is so into Lego magazine, he can sit and look at it forever. We always used to let him watch Mickey Mouse on Landon’s phone when we’d go to the chiropractor to keep him from terrorizing the office but Lego magazine sucks him in so good, last time we went it totally did the trick ;)
Alia / she is a “merbaby”, tells me all the time.
(Merfin here. It’s mine, and it’s amazing to swim with. Alia likes to try it on to “flip her fin”. I got a kids’ medium, & I wear a 6 1/2 shoe size. If you’ve ever had dreams of being a mermaid, you gotta get one. They sell adult sizes here too, but Zulily has the best price!)
Alia / naptime. It’s what rats nest are made of.
We went to Disney this week while Landon’s mom was in town. It was a really fun day!
Alia thought it was so neat to sit in a teacup. She wasn’t so sure about the Barnstormer. K has always loved the train, and Alia wanted to ride the “choo choo” too. The kids got to talk with Mickey, that was pretty cool! He even asked them to do the Hot Dog dance with him.Waiting for the castle show. Kaden is really into timers.Kaden has such a strong sense of justice, he was so mad when Maleficent came out & said no one believes in dreams. He cupped his hands around his mouth and yelled out “dreams come true” with all the gusto he could ;)Alia was shocked and terrified to see Maleficent. When she appeared in the cloud of smoke Alia gasped and covered her mouth before she buried her face into me until Maleficent left.Of course, Mickey & his pals saved the day.We got to eat at Beast’s castle, it is so impressive. And they take reservations for lunch now, even though it’s counter service, which was really nice to not stand in the huge line.Mickey turkey meatloaf.You could eat in the West Wing too.The details in new Fantasyland’s sidewalks are really fun. Kaden loved the peanut shells in line for Dumbo.We saw the Festival of Fantasy parade for the first time, it was a lot of fun.
Alia was very happy to see Elsa & Anna.Landon’s mom was talking about how the fairies weren’t walking, they were like floating, and how did they do that. Landon was about to say something when Kaden yelled out “They can fly! Haven’t you seen the movie?!“
