I have to admit I used Belle and Tink as cover as we looked at each colour of Mickey heads and discussed the merits of each.
They have a home depot in Canada, i did not know that, learn something new every day.

I used my DW as a cover, but she was looking for samples for a baby room, so I ended up taking a handful of every color...i think we ended up with at least 3 of each. I had about 150 total.


and did not use a single 1, i forget them at home.

Is that because your dollar is not the same as ours? What is 1 american dollar worth up there?

I should have made one of those boxes for DW, she collects those things also, and brings them home.


Great looking lunch boxes...did you say what those were from, or where you got them at?

Finally day 2!

Sorry this is moving slowly.

Thanks for sticking with me, I'm enjoying remembering every little detail and this is a great way for me to extend my holiday since there isn't another trip anywhere on the radar.

We had Mickey and Stitch call us nice and early so we could get an early start at EMH at AK this morning.

Flew out of bed again and had to grab the camera before I headed into the shower. They were just too cute!




Tink, there's a hippo on your head!

While the family was getting ready I grabbed the mugs and headed off for coffee (if you can even call it that) and breakfast for the troops. Brought it back up to the room so they could eat up there this morning.

Last time I did that.

Seems while I was getting breakie, Belle was having a fit about her clothes. "Too baby-ish" was the whine of the day. Get over it. That's what you are wearing! Mean mommy was returning quickly! Told her that I had heard enough and handed her breakfast.

Who can guess what happens next?

Any mother can.

She "accidently" dumped her food all over the shirt that was the problem.

GRrrrrrr......

Now what should I do. I don't know. I'm torn. She did it on purpose so she wouldn't have to wear it so I should still make her wear the dirty shirt but on the other hand all the photos for the day will be ruined. Decisions, decisions.....

"Change your shirt but sorry to say it but that is all you have for breakfast. You can try again at lunch to eat."

"But Mommmmm....."

Lets go get the bus.

Headed out and took the morning photos of the girls just in case they go missing I can show a CM exactly what they were wearing and how they looked today. I know, I sound paranoid but Declansdad made me do it!

Here is Belle in her second outfit of the day




And Tink




We get off the bus about 5 mins before EMH was to start and yet I don't see anyone around.

Hmmmm.....that's okay.......lets stop for a photo!




Still not seeing anyone.

I am thinking maybe EMH is not that popular at AK.

Nothing else is entering my mind.

Certainly not that I could be wrong about something.....

Get up to the turnstiles and all I hear is crickets chirping!

In fact the turnstiles are all still covered up.

Oops!

Sorry about that!

To pass some time they went on a hunt.....

Here they are admiring their catch!




And a view of the mighty creature!




That was fun for awhile and then it got old.

A few other people were starting to show up and I had a thought!

Scary things happen when I have thoughts.....

"Girls, get up here."

"Why? We don't want to"

"Tough, get up here"

Waiting......




Still waiting.....




And then it happened! It really happened!
i the picture of the girls in front of AK!! Too cute!

now, stopping the story lik ethat is just plain mean. must-know-what-happened!!

You guys are a riot!

I love how good our dollar is doing right now. I am seriously considering paying off my cruise even though the balance is not due until September. Have to take advantage of our dollar being worth more than the American while we can.
