Ok, I stayed up way too late but I finished it. You are doing a great job. Love your pics. The boys, and your friends kids, all look so cute. I'd have to say my favorite shots are the one of Cole cheesing real big and of him sleeping on his daddy's shoulder, that is what my Cole would be doing. Oh, and I noticed that not only do our youngest share the same name and are about the same age but apparently they shop at the same stores,lol. My cole has the exact same brown Mickey jacket, too funny.

Can't wait for more.

Awww, thanks for reading, sorry to keep you up so late, though!! I have to agree, those are my favorite pictures too of Cole, especially the big smiley one, what a ham!! And boy do our babies have SO much in common or what? They have the best name and wonderful taste in clothing!! Target sale?!! It was too cute for me NOT to get!!

Have a great day!!

Day 3 continued....

Hi everyone!! Happy Tuesday!

It's a lazy, cold, rainy, icey and windy day here in MA, the baby is napping, the boys are watching a movie (A Goofy Movie on Disney!!) and dinner is in the crockpot...what else am I to do but update my TR and bring back some warm memories?!!! So here goes...hope everyone is having a good day today!!!

We left off heading back out to kill some time from the Character meet and greet and decided to head over to visit Figment. I really love this ride and remember it fondly as a little girl, too. Here are a couple pics of the kids on the way....



We really enjoyed Figment and his journey, it's a cute ride and the kids really got a kick out of it. Zach & Lucas especially liked when Figment sprayed his "skunk" smell...they laughed hysterically at this!! It was cute.

Here are a few shots from the Imagination center afterwards.....
Zach making music

Hailey having fun

and even Cole was getting into it...after Mommy jumped on a few of the squares to show him, sorry, no pics of me doing this!! LOL! You can tell who had the camera!!
Cole looks so serious in this picture!!

We then decided to head to Honey I shrunk the kids show....a pic of the boys waiting patiently with their glasses on..... Lukey looks so little to me in this pic


And finally, it was time for Soarin'!!!!!!!!!!! I couldn't wait. We decided that Todd, Ethan and I would ride first since Emmi neeed a bottle and then Tracey, Adam and Hailey would go next. We had a 12:15 at Le Celliar in Canada and it was about 11:30 at this point, the earliest we could ride. We took our fastpasses and off we went....we made a lot of progress through the line but then we stopped for about 10 minutes or so. Todd text messaged Adam to tell him to meet us inside so we could do a quick switch off when we got off, but he never got it. So, we went for the ride and WOW was it unbelievable and wonderful!!!! It was truly the best ride I've ever been on!!! We all LOVED it and couldn't wait to report back and ride again another time, it was family favorite!! But, by the time we got off, it was time for us to head to Canada for lunch and there was no time for Tracey and Adam to ride now. So, Todd and I grabbed another fastpass for them, the next time to ride was 6:30!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I felt so bad for them, it's not like it was our fault, but it the scheme of our planning, not sure what we could have done differently.

We were now off to Le Celliar for our lunch and we couldn't wait!! Adam had heard great things about this place from a coworker and after learning about it, I heard great things on DIS, so we were all looking forward to this lunch and it did not disappoint one bit!! Other than they couldn't sit us together...they had a table for 6 and one for 4 and since we had two sleeping babies that needed to stay in carriages, it made for some interesting table seating. Worked out in the end though, Tracey and I, along with the babies got a table to ourselves and finally had some time together "alone" to talk and catch up, so it was nice. And it gave us time to come up with the next plan of attack after lunch. We decided we'd give Kidcot a whirl since it's free and we were already in the World Showcase.

The meal was the best we had all week!! Tracey and I had the Mushroom filet and it just melted in your mouth!!!!!!!! It was to die for!! And for dessert, I had the chocolate mouse and Tray has the s'mores dessert. They were excellent and I highly recommend it, if you haven't been, make it a priority!!

From here, we headed out back of Canada to get the kids started at Kidcot....

Day 3 kidcot stations here we come!

On the way out of Le Celliar we decided to try for a family shot, since the backdrop was gorgeous!!


And here is our family....not the best, not the worst, wish Ethan was looking and maybe smiling and I wish I took the bag off....oh well, it's us!


And off to the Kidcot station....now, before I post these pictures, I will tell you that the pics of Todd and Cole are some of my favorite..they tell their own story, so I will let it tell it to you...enjoy!!











Isn't the interaction between them just too cute?!!! I love it....they BOTH had so much fun working on Cole's mask and playing with it too!!!!!!

And here are a few of the other cuties working hard on their masks, too!!




Who knew the free masks would be such a hit!! The kids all loved them and they collected treasures from all the countries the rest of the afternoon. I'm sorry, I dont have any more pictures of them.....

From there, we headed to Norway, we were ready for another ride at this point.... here is some views on the way.....





The line was so short for the ride in Norway and we all really enjoyed it. Here are a picture of our little vikings.... it's such a cute one!! Not the boys and their braids too. LOL!!


We were now on our way to Mexico....

Sounds like you had a blast at Epcot so far. Isn't Soarin' wonderful?

I love that you were able to have some "quiet" time with your friend. That's great.

I love the Little Vikings.

Hi Everyone!

Sorry that it's been a couple of days since I last posted...I'm hoping to do so tomorrow, but no guarantees. Today was a crummy day and this weekend my Mom and I are going away overnight to celebrate our birthdays. Hers was the 30th and mine is on Tuesday, instead of doing gifts, we figured we'd have some girl time.

Hope everyone is well and I promise to update, soon!!

Happy birthday!!
Thanks Paula for understanding!! It was so nice to spend time with my Mom, she's been wanting to do an overnight for years and since I've been busy having babies, nursing babies, etal these last 6 years, there wasn't the time. So this year was the year for us. We had a great time in Providence, RI, stayed in beautiful hotel (The Westin) and had dinner out and a couple glasses of wine and shopped until we dropped!! It was really fun to have that girl time. And thanks for my birthday wishes.....I'll turn 36 tomorrow, ugh!! How'd that happen so soon!?!!!

Hi Sue!! Welcome to my TR!!! You live in Plymouth, too!? It really is a small world, isn't it?!! Aww...you're going to LOVE Pop and Disney in December and MVMCP!!!!!! It's really a magical time of year to go and you will not regret it!! How old are your girls? I wonder if our kids go to the same schools?!!

Thanks for being patient with me, I"ve downloaded some more pics and I'm ready to write but right now I have to get Cole up from his nap. So I'll do my best to write tonight after the boys go to bed. Talk to you then and Happy Monday!!!
