The rest of day 5

After the World of Disney, we browsed in a few more stores...

We hit Team Mickey! The boys loved these mugs!

then we went into Tren-D! Such a fun, pretty store!

We made a visit to the pin store!

This is when Bryan called and said he was on his way over, so I told him where we would be and to call when he got over to where we were!

I decide to go over to the Christmas Tree store to see if I could take our Christmas card photo picture! They didn't turn out very well!

After this Bryan called and we met him at the Animal kingdom Lodge bus stop!

Turns out, he LOVED his massasge once he relaxed and said it was so relaxing! From that point on whenever I would rub his back he would say "that isn't how Chelsea did it" such a BUSTER!! Turns out he went in the sauna and had some tea! Sounds like heaven to me!

We pulled into the Lodge and I was SO HAPPY to be there! We REALLY missed staying there this year! It is so well themed and SO VERY relaxing!

Well, happy to be "home" we went down to Boma and checked in! We were seated rather quickly as it wasn't very busy!

I have NO pictures from dinner guys! Sorry I guess I was just into my meal!! Boma did not disappoint and was delicious as always!!!

We had talked with lesley about the possibility of the kids swimming together so I brought their suits ( I know, no pool hopping!) The kids had so much fun swimming together!

We had made Luke and Lauren goody bags before we left home for our meet on 7/1 but we decided to bring them on this night!

The boys couldn't wait to give them to them!

Happy kids! Givers and receivers!!

the adults had a few drinks and watched the kids swim and we really enjoyed our time with them! They are such a nice family and we all got along really well!!

Unfortunately, storms started rolling in and our fun was cut short! We brought the kids inside and said our goodbyes changed the boys and headed back to Saratoga!

We got back and showered and went to sleep!

What a GREAT and relaxing day! So nice to just take it easy!!!

Coming up next! I have waited SO LONG for this moment!!!

Your boys have so much personality, you can tell that in their pictures! Darling!

I like the Turf Club; we ate there in September 07 and it was very good. I especially liked how you could eat and gaze at DTD - but it was way hot when we were there as well.

I like having "down days" too - it's not not to go, go, go all the time; and don't you love that you can do laundry?! I think that is one of the best things about the DVC resorts. It's so nice not having to go home with a suitcase full of dirty clothes!

Sounds like a great relaxing day! What a great Father's Day gift, glad he enjoyed it. Too funny him saying that after your rubbed his back. Loved the boys outfits, they (the boys) are too cute and very photogenic. I didn't know about the photo op at the Christmas store, good to know!

What a lovely relaxing day. I love the pictures of the boy with their green shirts and sunglasses. You found the perfect gift for Bryan and I'm glad he was able to relax and enjoy it. Tell me about the lego thing. I've never done that. We did the potatoe head stuffed box, is it like that? Danielle enjoys legos but my 23 year old still likes them too.

We slept in this day too, but still hit AK. It was Danielle's real birthday. The skies opened up on us as we were leaving 1900 Park Fair that night. We got soaked even with our ponchos.

Great installment!

Your dessert looks so delicious! That one sounds right up my alley.

I love the boys' coordinating shirts. Very cute! You looked so pretty that night with your hair all done and all! Not that you're not pretty to begin with, but you look especially pretty on this night.

Glad Bryan's gift worked out well. Sounds like pure heaven to me - tea and a sauna. I love the heat like that!

Can't wait for more!!!

I was so behind, but am now caught up!

Looks like a great couple of days! WTG on a non-park day, sounds like it was wonderful.

I am really enjoying your report. My goal is to stay at AKL next year when we go back over Thanksgiving. I wanted to this time but Jeremy saw the slide at Coronado Springs and wanted to do that. Go figure, water slide, over seeing animals from the room! That child never ceases to amaze me!

I have never done the lego bucket. I assume you fill up the container and pay a set price, pretty much like the Mr. Potato Head. Is that right? If so, do you remember the cost? Jeremy would love this. I had not planned on going to DTD in September but might just for that.

Looking forward to your next update!

Exited to see what is next and glad you took a day off. Lunch looked fantastic, good to know.

You were legal pool hoppers-- can't you go to AKL with DVC, not AKV though or Stormalong bay.

Sounds like a fun, relaxing day. The massage sounds like a great treat for Brian. And the goody bags for Lesley's kids was a very sweet idea.

We will have to try Boma and the Turf club.

What a fun/relaxing day! That is the good thing about a longer vacation, you can really relax and aren't worried about missing something.

Thanks for the review of Turf Club. I was thinking about making an ADR there for our trip.

Your boys are so cute. I love that they dress alike. Where did you get their "green" shirt?
