Some people just don't understand what Mr. Tom Morrow meant to me
I think you need some ICE for that burn!

Sounds like a long trip back to the Contemporary with all the transportations issues.
Luckily after this day, there wasn't anymore major transportation problems!

Sorry I've been MIA, but I was in Disney and just got back the other day! Sounds like a fun morning in Epcot! I def need to try Lotus Blossom Cafe! I normally love MS, but I got stuck on it for 15 minutes before they started, but after they close the doors and lock ya in there! Your Minnie ears are so cute! I got the regular mickey ears, but not I think I'm regretting my decision after seeing your pics. Oh well! Bummer about the long commute back to your resort.

Whoa, I hope you had a great trip! I'll go check out your TR (:
That sounds like a bummer place to get stuck for fifteen minutes, I've never really been stuck on a ride that long before
Thank you, I am in love with those Minnie ears (:

Looks like you guys picked some good food options. I've never been to the China pavilion for a meal and I love the food from the Mexican pavilion so I think I might have to try the Lotus Blossom Cafe fried rice. A shame you had to leave and run into the Brazilian tour groups. YUCK!

Wow, you really did not have any luck with the monorail on this trip. The pictures your brother got are really nice though. Everything looks so much more photogenic from up there no matter how photogenic they may already be.

Can't wait to read more!

LBC's fried rice is delicious, you should defiantly try it!
I agree, pictures just turn out so much cooler when you're on the monorail (:

Poolside Fun and Awkwardness

July 6th, 2012

Once we made it back to our room, we quickly got our bathing suits on because house keeping had not yet come by and we wanted to be out of their way when they got there.

We got seats in the shade

And my parents went to fill up everyone's mugs!

I went in the pool to cool down... but I'm VERY OCD about my hair, I hate getting it wet because it's so much work to dry and style it and I like to have it perfect. So I made sure not to go to deep



The boys, however, jumped right in and swam all over the place



They also loved the slide (which I didn't go on the whole trip, I guess I'm not a fan of water slides lol)


It was such a beautiful day out





Johnny and Joey got a volleyball and played with my dad



I decided to join in, to make even teams, plus it looked like fun






I'm not too good when it comes to hitting it back over the net, but I can actually serve it pretty well!




Throughout the time at the pool, we would check back at the room to see if housekeeping was done, but they didn't come/weren't done until 4:30.
By then we were all pretty tired from being out in the sun all day and swimming, so we relaxed for a bit in the room.
We decided against going to a park this night, like originally planned, because we were just pooped!

We agreed on having dinner at the hotel, The Contempo Cafe! My new all time favorite resort quick service! It's sooooo good and I loved everything I ever ate there!
It's really cool, you order your food on the touch screens, then pay for it, and they give you one of these things that buzz when your food is ready

And then you go pick up your food, it's very neat



continued in next post

Poolside Fun and Awkwardness continued

Our food was ready pretty quickly
I had the Multigrain Turkey BLT - cheddar, bacon, and vine-ripe tomatoes on multigrain bread with lime-cilantro aioli

Minus the tomatoes
It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy!

Both the boys got Cheese Flatbreads


My mom got Pasta with Chicken Basil Creme Sauce


My dad got Pasta with Marinara Sauce


Everything looked very yummy

After dinner we looked around the gift shops


These mugs were very interesting
One side said something good, the other said something "bad"








The boys wanted to play ping pong (something they ended up doing quite a lot)






I went on a random photo spree






continued

Poolside Fun and Awkwardness continued

My parents came by and said they were going to go on a walk, so I joined them.
Stopping at this first




We walked down to the pier








My parents went to sit down but I stayed on the pier so I could get this shot, but with the monorail in it


So I stood there and waited and waited for the monorail to come by. And while I was standing there, a boy who looked like he was two or three years younger than me walked by me and said "sup" to me. At first I was confused if he was talking to me, because I couldn't tell if he was looking at me or not (because I can't see the best more than ten feet away from me without my glasses oops lol) so I just gave him a weird look and he keeps walking by and goes "okay then"
Whoops, that was awkward! Sorry, random kid!

We all went back to the room, showered, and relaxed because we would be waking up early again tomorrow!

Up Next: Will He Love It??
