Who has time to blog?

Not me, apparently!
The holidays hit as well as a birthday and I never got around to posting Disney pix, let alone anything else!

Since there's NO WAY these photos will see a physical scrapbook this side of the boys' teenage years, I'll post them here for them...and for the grands and great grands enjoyment! (*disclaimer: this trip left no time for setting up a shot. it was all about keeping up with 3 boys. i should have brought leashes. bear with me on the poor photography!)

We arrived in Orlando and headed to Downtown Disney for dinner. My friend Summer had told me that T-Rex was a must for us. I knew it would be packed and we'd not been able to get reservations. However, when we arrived the wait was only 20 minutes, so we were able to get in! A fun surprise and blessing to kick off our trip. I highly recommend it. Each dining area has a different theme (Ice Age, Coral Reef) and is larger than life. Every few minutes the lights would dim in our dining area and a meteor shower would commence on the ceiling (as well as the dinos coming to life and roaring). The boys loved it!

Our first full day was spent on the Future World side of Epcot. It was great to see the "big golfball" for the first time! The boys' favorite ride (and mine) was Soarin'. The ride simulates flying over California and you even smell oranges as you fly over the groves....very well done. For lunch, we headed over to Cantina San Angel on the other side in the World Showcase. We ate outside by the lovely Lagoon and then headed back to our resort for a rest. Future World was fun, but we liked the World Showcase side better overall.
