For the first time, I felt like a proud parent. I watched in wonder at Erin excitedly conversing with Belle like they were best friends. Belle listened intently and took her time with Erin.

Such innocence, such purity, such Disney magic. It was just one of many moments I had enjoying the innocence and pure joy of youth....I walked away with a bit of mist in my eye....


Yay for the Crepes. Glad they are included in Dining Plan.
Nice pic of Kim and Wendy.
Gotta try this drink. We don't drink except on vacation and on special occasions.
Teary eyed reading your response to Erin and Belle and seeing the pics. Best of Disney.

I was up late...There are even more great pix of Erin and Dylan and Baby J coming up later....This is still their 1st day there.....

There was another slush that was orange in nature. That looked good too.

Going by the expression on your face when you were quaffing it this drink is obviously pretty gorgeous and it's now pretty near the top of my "to do" list for 2009
She was in absolute heaven.

The drink is a must do drink...for sure.

... some of the best moments at Disney are the ones where you witness children totally believeing in the magic and it's the best when it starts to rub off on the adults.
I couldn't have said it better.....

We laughed every time we went on a hunt for a snack.

I never understood the whole character thing until I saw Erin w/ Belle.

Loved the special effects on that first picture

What did they have on their crepes in France? I had one there as well and wanted chocolate and raspberry preserves on it, but there must have been a language barrier cause she only put chocolate It was ok. Not as good as my memere's.
I figured since I was delinquent for a few days that I'd post a few updates....

I was always goofing around with my new camera trying different settings.

I think they had the raspberrry and chocolate, but I think Kim just had chocolate. Hers was okay too.

How cool that you guys were "dreamed" by a stranger! Only at Disney, right? That was so nice!
Only at Disney...and people wonder why we like to go so much?

Receiving the ears was a great way to start off Wendy and Derek's portion of the trip.

Playing in the water was perfect solution to hot, sweaty Asian children.

Good grief!! It doesn't take long to get behind on this trip report. The updates are great! I love the pictures of the kids in the fountain.

You are only the second person I have ever heard use the word "butt" to describe the temperature. My husband likes to say it is "butt cold out" . He has never said it is " butt hot" though. Although living in Ohio there is a better chance of saying "butt cold" than "butt hot".

I think that is the most I've used the word butt in one paragraph.

Woo Hoo! Never had 'em. Are they gud?

Grey Goose is gud. I've seen this drink at the kiosk but never ordered. I always get wine. I'm going to have to try this out as it looks very gud and I love vodka.

I'm so there with you. My little DD is so cute around the characters... like they're real. Well, I guess they ARE real to her.

Looks like you had an awesome time. Yay for snack mojo and niceness-karma-dreaming.

The pics in the fountain are sooooo cute, and Yay Erin for going on test track.

In case no one mentioned it: SSE = space ship Earth

Great Peeps pics. Flat winkers looks like she was gonna have a sugar rush.

What happened to Binder?? Did he get jealous and run off.

Sorry I'm not more lucid....I would probably look like Flat winkers if HHBG took a pic of me right now.

Yay for snackworthy snacks. I mean to try the crepes, but get sidelined by the slushes.
