Day 2 Bub's Burgers and Indy Meet!

Saturday we woke up and lounged around facebooking and reading the DIS.


Shanan and Jason's version of the steeeeeeek!


Shanan looked for another burger joint for lunch. She musta been in a burger mood while she was planning this trip. This time she used Urbanspoon.com and the number 2 rated Indy restaurant is Bub's Burgers & Ice Cream. So we head over to downtown Carmel.


We arrived at 11:10 AM the place opens at 11:00 AM and by 11:30 AM the place had a wait!!
See all the people waiting behind me?


Hmmm....what size burger shall we order?


Well, since Shanan is sharing with me let's order the 11 oz.

Jason and I relaxing and waiting for our food on the outside patio.


Yum a chocolate milkshake...this was Shanan's 2nd favorite shake she has ever had. Number 1 being Schoop's.


YUM!


This burger is HUGE!


Shanan and I couldn't even finish the whole thing!


Another fabulous find! Now we were on our way to the DISmeet! On the way there we stopped at a Meijer to pick up a cheese tray and some crackers.

We get there a little before 1pm and immediatley see...

(that stinker tricked us!)

I head over to check out the silent auction items and look around at the various things to do.

Ooooo...I want this


and this (Bob's homemade keychains)


Kids Korner


We go up to the front table and fill out name tags and get our tickets for the raffle drawing that will be held at the top of every hour.
We also get our scavenger hunt sheets...and start walking around the room and meeting fellow DIS enthusiasts!

After we filled out our scavenger hunt sheet we turned it in for another raffle. We also bought some tickets for the 50/50 raffle. We like raffles!!

Ok, first things first, gotta get a Dole Whip!



Hanging out with some of the gang...


The 1st drawing at 2:00 pm.


Jason started in on Brandie's cupcakes...it wasn't until the 5th one he discovered that there were other flavors.



Kids playing hot potato.


Shanan and I were wanting some more food...

2nd half of the DISmeet

Shanan brought her pins and pin traded a bit and talked to some other DISers about pins.

Now it was time for some kid activities! How to draw a character.
Like Disney's Art of Animation class...so Tonya, Shanan and I decide to attend.



She was a very good teacher!




Shanan and I played Bingo next. That was fun! We liked the Bingo cards.


Shanan's number was drawn for a lovely Dunkin Donuts gift basket that was put together by Aaron's mother. It was lovely and I even came home with a prize.


What number cupcake is this!?!?


Shanan wants to try the fondant and get to the center where the Rice Krispies are .



It is close to 5pm and there is a mad dash for the snipes to come in and steal the items away from the high bidders!
We won the Bob key-chains, a Club 33 key-chain, and Disney's Christmas Carol plush dolls. Since there were 3 key-chains and Tracey, Tonya and Shanan wanted them we split them up.


Tonya won the restaurant review with Kevin and John and Tracey won the signed shirt!

Gotta have our Dole Whips for Bawb!


The end of a great meet! It just was over too fast. Thanks for all the work Aaron, Kim and Anna!! We can't wait for next year!

Saturday night and Sundy Morning!

So it is only 6pm and we have the place cleaned up. None of us go to bed at 7pm...so a few of us that don't have any plans for the evening head over to where else....Houlihan's

Wow, those tiles are going to hurt later.


These are some BIG drinks!


Shanan and Jaime Martini tasting part 2!



We all order appetizers or something small...
Jason goes with the Asian Chicken Noodle Bowl


Shanan orders the lettuce wraps


We have a good time chatting away then we walk down to some of the shops to burn off some of our meal and alcohol.

We stop into a doggie shop. Are these thongs for your dog?


Next we head into Borders Tonya and Brandie want to check out the Twilight section. Someone has a crush on Edward


Borders is closing and we still don't want to leave each other so we decide to hang out in the hotel lobby and have a DATL/Twilight tutorial/Legally Blonde sing-a-long.
Before:

After:

(anyone want to go swimming)

Tracy and Bill joined us for a little bit and we had a fun time talking and exchanging 's. Shanan, Jason and Tracey learned alot about the Cullen's. We left to go home at 2 am. We had to rest up for the last meet we have a brunch scheduled for 10:30 am at Stone Creek.

We made it! Shanan wasn't feeling to well though.


These pictures are Tracey's

Our group for Brunch.


Food


Our group from DATL



Now it's time to say goodbye to all our company....


See you real soon! But not soon enough!
We had a great weekend!! Hanging with DISers is the best!

Jaime wanted some ice cream and a shake on the way home.


Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it!

All I remember is "you need a hug", "I love you....I said, I love you!" "do you like me" and "I feel sorry for you".

Alright, so where we were?? Oh yes...we just had lunch at Teppan Edo! YUM!! And now it is time to enjoy some of the flower and garden festival as we head back to meet up with Aaron and Nana in the Mexico Pavilion.

What a lovely view of Spaceship Earth


Funny story about the Tricky Trolls of Norway: One of the first times we went to WDW as I couple I believe it may have been our second time when I was 5 months pregnant with Aaron and I couldn't ride on many of the rides I was doing a tour of performances. Well, the sign in front of Norway said the Tricky Trolls of Norway and then underneath said the times. I really wanted to see the Tricky Trolls of Norway perform so we sat there for a while until Jason realized that they were talking about the ride Malestrom and the times were for the Norway band. DOH! The Tricky Trolls got me! They sure are tricky!


YAY! We finally meet up with Aaron and Nana and we ride the Gran Fiesta tour.


Someone is tired of me taking pictures! Get use to it! This is nothing yet! Now I must report about my Trips from now on .


I pin trade for a bit in the Mexico Pavilion while they go on the ride two more times! Aaron liked this one too!
Aaron is now getting pretty tired, he hasn't taken a nap yet. We head over to the Odyssey for a little break.

Oh wow this is pretty!


Break time!


Ooooh a pretty bird opening his wings!


We decide to check out the butterfly house.


I wasn't too impressed with this exhibit, it was rather small. I have been to a better one at the Frederick Meijer Garden's in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Next stop the Fairy playground! Ooooo! Aaron isn't impressed yet!


I loved all the little furniture and fairy houses....oh and they have their own method for transportation.

Where is Eeyore? I see some thistles!!





Aaron loves slides!




By now Aaron is really pooped out! So we ride Spaceship Earth with Aaron and Nana, and I get to sit with Aaron! He really enjoyed this ride too!




Nana takes Aaron back to Pop for a nap and Jason and I head over to Ellen's Energy Adventure for Momma's Nap!

I snap a picture of this, because Aaron loved playing with the silver screws and saying "Button, button"


Alrighty, nap time!

The ride is over and we head out to the Wonders of Life Pavilion to see all the cool things there are to learn about gardens.....ok maybe not...or maybe not yet.....I am not really old enough...nor do I have the land yet to care about a garden....but maybe one day.

Who knew that there are so many different kinds of soils you can use for planting?!?


I wonder how much she is getting paid to talk about bird feeders?





Disclaimer: I maybe editing this post later. I wrote all of this from pure memory and Jason may have some things to add. My notes ended as of yesterday! Eeek!

Ohhh....upon walking out of the Wonders of Life I see a good picture opportunity....


Why did they shut down the Wonders of Life? Why do they take all good things away from us in Epcot......well almost all the good things....at least we still have the slushies! Oh, we are getting to that soon! It is almost DATW time!

Another perrrty picture.


We decide to head through both Innoventions (wow is that a hard word to spell...I kept wanting to spell interventions!)

I wanna see alot of shows that I missed last time....the Hurricane one had a big group of people going in so I passed on this one now. Ohhh the velcro show is starting soon! So I decide to see that...Jason doesn't want to see the show! (Now I don't blame him!) The highlight of the show:


(for some reason these babies falling off this conveyor belt was the funniest thing to me?!?)

Hey look its a Pig!


And it is almost 5 o'clock.....we head over to the Canada Pavalion and decide to see the show O'Canada they updated it since the last time we saw it.

When we get out of the show we head over to a group of DISer's by the beer cart! Let the madness commence!

I'm all caught up again! 7 times so far on IASW? I'm curious to find what the final count will be....

I LOVE your Jaime flattie. She has clothing options!!! Looks like it was a great meet.

Epcot all decked out for the F&G festival is so beautiful-you got some great pictures!
