Disney Day 2

On Tuesday we woke up and after eating breakfast in our room, we dressed in our coordinating vacation shirts that Gammaw got us and our Mouse Ears and then took the Monorail to Epcot. Everyone else in Disney World decided to go to Epcot on the same day and it was SO packed but we still got to do everything on our must do list.

The boys looked so cute like little Mickey Mouse Club members

Enjoying the nice weather on our back porch

The Monorail was one of the boys' favorite rides ;-)





A flower festival was going on at Epcot so there were lots of Topiaries and flowers and such



The first thing we did was ride Soarin, which makes you feel like you are flying. It was really cool. One of my favorite things about Epcot was that they were not as strict on the height requirement so the boys got to come on Soarin with us and they really liked it too.

Next we road a fun ride called The Seas with Nemo & Friends, the boys loved that of course!

Then we ate lunch at the Coral Reef which has a giant aquarium so we could watch the sharks and sting rays while we ate.



After lunch we went over and road Test Track which is a really fun ride where you get to be a Crash Dummy in a car that's being pushed to the limit. Again, Adam & Andrew were permitted to join us and so all 6 of us got to ride in one car together. This ride was pretty exciting but the kids did great.

After that we did Spaceship Earth in the big ball

Andrew and I , LOL

Afterwards we decided to head back to the room so the boys could get a good nap since we were going to have a late night.

After naps and changing into dressier clothes we took a cab to Downtown Disney to watch Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba





Considering it was pretty long and not really geared for young children, the boys did pretty well during the show.

Afterwards we took a cab back to the Contemporary Resort for our dinner reservation at the California Grill which is on the top floor of the hotel. Since we were on a dining plan we wanted to take advantage of it and we definitely got our money's worth. This dinner was AMAZING and I would definitely recommend it. A bonus to our dinner was that they have an outdoor catwalk where you can go out and watch the Magic Kingdom Fireworks while the coordinating music plays. It was breathtaking!

Our dining plan included dessert with every meal so we had a hard time passing that up!

Andrew Approved!

After, we just about licked the plates clean!

That's funny that you guys had good luck getting the boys on rides at Epcot...that's where we had trouble! Lathan and Lauren were no question, but when we went to ride Soarin they wouldn't let Logan in :( He's getting a complex too about his size but luckily we were able to stuff him in Lauren's pink tennis shoes (he was wearing flip flops originally!)and got him on!

Looks like you guys had an awesome vacation! I'm going through my pics right now and its fun looking at yours...lots of the same!!!

Great photos as always! Thanks for sharing!
Know that I'm continuing to pray at this end!
Isaiah 26:3-4 Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength.

The Lord is with you right now, lifting you up, giving you strength! Always praying!
Isaiah 40:28-31 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
