Our suite was stocked with paper plates and bowls and plastic utensils. A half a gallon of milk was easily purchased from the food court and we had packed cereal and snacks in a small suitcase so we were able to eat breakfast in our room a few mornings.
This next one is another one of my favorites. I love how you can see Anna's eyes.
We had a super fun day at Epcot. Because it was a Saturday, the park was a bit crowded so we were unable to do many character meets as some of the lines were outrageously long. To me, it always feels like the parks are more crowded on the weekends due to the locals. We were all able to ride Soarin' this time around. (Yippee!) Lunch at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall was delicious. They had a buffet of salad, fruits and veggies but your meal was plated and your choice. The desserts were shared by the table and although we weren't able to pick what we wanted, the three that were given to us were quite yummy. For our party of six, we had two plates of desserts. Dinner that evening was at the counter service restaurant in Mexico. I just love their nachos and churros. This was the first time that we had been in a park after dark and the girls didn't want to leave. I thought they would have been exhausted but then again, they were riding around in strollers for most of the day. Such a tough life.
When we returned to the resort, we walked around so that the girls could check out the Cars and Little Mermaid sections. It was such a simple thing to do but the girls really enjoyed it. If you happen to stay at Pop Century, I highly recommend walking over to Art of Animation to see the theming.
Hold still for a few seconds, please!
And I can't end this without sharing the buddy photos of the day.
The Sparkle Family
Anna's family of buddies. See that little red bear. That thing had been hanging out in the Volvo forever and someone happened to carry it in the house a few weeks before our trip. Anna packed it in her bag and named him JoJo. There were a few very funny JoJo moments during our vacation, including the car ride home when we thought that JoJo had been left on the plane.
Up next - more Magic Kingdom!
Late yesterday, I discovered that someone nominated my blog for the Best Family & Kids Blog over at Apartment Therapy. And a few people actually voted for me. I just wanted to give a shout out and thank whoever did that. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy. So I'm not going to
A massive blizzard is expected to hit us later today. It actually started snowing a few hours ago. If the storm is in your area, stay warm and safe!
