Disney Day Two: With a Surprise Ending

We woke up this morning to 100% rain chance all day. And I said Rain...Schmain. We laugh in the face of rain. Muwah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.So we got these thrifty little raincoats at Wal Mart that were of such high quality that they turned my Twerps' skin a yellowish hue thus making everyone think I had the Jaundice Twerps. Our first ride was the carousel. And if was up to Baby Twerp...
there would have been no other ride. Ever. We would have spent $500 and eight hours for a carousel ride. But I yanked a knot in his tail and said GET AHOLD OF YOURSELF YOU CRAZY MAN -- We have places to go and people to see.He pouted in the stroller with his comfort food for the next three rides.

Then he could not resist the need...the need for speed at the Speed Raceway.

And Eldest Twerp was in heaven with her princesses. Don't ask about Ariel. We might need therapy.
Then the rain stopped and thank heaven we were gonna get some sunshine to help with that jaundice and all. So we made our way to the Buzz Zone.
In this pic Middle Twerp realizes Baby Twerps laser gun is cooler. It was not a great moment.The tea cups were of course a hit.
And I felt like a kid again in It's A Small World. And I am still singing that song.

But we had a blast and at the end of the day, we were all tuckered out.
So we said goodbye and headed back to the hotel to rest. Until that 30 minute car nap rejuvenated us and we were rip roaring ready to go once again...
So we swam and swam and swam...
Which is UNBELIEVABLY now Baby Twerps new passion...
And we had a little surprise guest leave his busy schedule behind to enjoy a little Disney Magic with us this weekend. And celebrate a little SOMEBODY getting a dream JOB OFFER!

Dear CG,
I am so thrilled for you. That sounds so exciting and what a great way to celebrate......with your kids in Disney World. Can't wait to hear more about it. You won't stop blogging will you? Please say no. Who else will show us dressing room shots and hair-do how to's and fraternity house goats? Blogworld needs you. I shouldn't get ahead of myself, I should just rejoice with you for now and not worry about where else I'll get my political advice!!!

brainella said...

Fantastic! What a wonderful weekend all the way around!

Can I say I'm jealous now?

Paige said...

This looks like it really might go down in the books as the BEST DAY EVER in your family.

Isnt it amazing that even though Disney is for kids, it makes EVERYONE feel better?

I like the karma of this situation--you did a great thing with your kids, and got the great reward of the job offer.

Perfect

Elisa said...

We were just there a couple of weeks ago!
The Buzz Lightyear ride was really fun, wasn't it?

We didn't meet Snowwhite and I was a bit disappointed, but Sarah was ok with it, because she met Mary Poppins, one of her favorite characters :-)
