Shows the type of character you and your DH are instilling into your little girls.
God's way of showing us they are doing OK.
Oh Sarah, I too am all teary eyed just thinking about the kind of values you are teaching your girls! It just makes my heart all warm and fuzzy. There aren't a lot of Mom's like you who teach their girls those special values and morals like the ones you have!!!

It was one of those "she really does love her" moments that I will never forget.
Glad to find those little moments to check in with my DISbuds! Ahhh, so I'm not the only one to do the Chinese character thing - cool that there are some things we can do for our uniquely-named wee ones :D

I'm sure you will remember it always - such a warm, loving moment between the two of them

Please keep it up! I'll be reading!

HI stumbled upon your TR and read all your chapters courtesy of your convenient links! I enjoyed reading it and must say you have a beautiful family. I have 2 DD's of my own so reading your last chapter made me tear up! I hope my DD's will be like that one day (they are 3 and 16 months now). you can really see the joy on tinks face! priceless. I'm looking forward to reading more

Hey Annie, I am not sure about revealing the details.....so much is still up in the air that I am trying to not get excited about it. The kids don't know.....too much going on between now and then.....when is the Glow Party this year?

Thank you so much kizuna! So nice to hear that you have been enjoying my trip report. I have been enjoying reliving it! The next chapter should be up soon!

Thank you so much. I loved the way the pics turned out. Really captured the moment I think. It is nice to hear of someone who gets along with their sister, seems I hear so many stories of sisters who don't get along. I am an only child so the whole sibling dynamic is a new thing to me.

Glad you found me here mom2disprincesses! I am glad you have been enjoying the report so far. I am about 1/2 through now I think and more is coming up soon!

Isn't it great having 2 DDs? I love it! I always wanted a sister and never got one so I am enjoying watching their relationship develop with each other. Moments like that one make it so wonderful!

I love Rob Thomas & Disney World equally. Is that a bad thing? I think not. :)

Chapter 28 - Dinner Time!

After we wiped our happy tears from the girls’ “moment” we settled in for the 30 min wait we were told we’d have.

Not two minutes later they called us!

Score!

Or not.

They took us into the restaurant and promptly seated us in the little room behind the cooking area completely away from the action where you can’t even see what is going on.

Grrr.....

We sit down but I just can’t do it.....

“Excuse me, is it possible to be seated in the main dining area?”

“Only if you want to wait 45 mins to an hour.”

“We’ll wait.”

So we are taken back to the waiting area and order some drinks to occupy us (okay - just me but whatever) while we wait....

Drinks didn’t even make it to us (okay, me) before they called us back in....

Score!

For real this time!

Here is the view towards Magic Kingdom from our table.




Wasn’t long before both the food and the entertainment started.....




Here is Belle....




And Tink who incidently ate 2 bowls of the chicken wings herself!




The kids did the coconut races (fun but Belle cheated and kicked her coconut the whole way....), the limbo and just had an all around good time.










The food kept coming.....

and coming.....

and coming.....

Never seen so much food arrive at a table.

Just when you think you were done, they brought more!

The kids and HG got up and learned some dance moves and a song. I took pictures from my seat. Did I mention those drinks were strong?!!














Just as we were finishing dinner they lowered the lights and Wishes started over at the Magic Kingdom and we were able to watch it from our table. For some reason I didn’t take any pictures of it.....so unlike me!

We had originally planned on going down to the beach to watch but we were having such a good time in the restaurant we lost track of time. Oh well....it was magical from where we were....

When it was time to go we were planning on taking the monorail back to MK and then take a bus back to the hotel but we thought about the crowds leaving the park after the fireworks and decided to take a taxi back.

Best $20 we could have spent!

Made it back to the hotel and fell into bed exhausted from a long day and full tummies.

And I just have to add - the dresses were still white at the end of the day! Small miracle I know! Nothing got spilled on them all day long! Woohoo!

Wonderful update...and those wings look good...I can see why she polished off 2 bowls by herself.

We weren't able to get into Ohana's this trip...darn it. Next one though!

Sticky wings AND still white dresses?

Do you carry around large bibs that they wear?

LOL

Nice update...I need to get back to mine. Sigh.
