That is just a random from Earl of Sandwich. I loved it too, Hannah's smile had issues as the trip went on... so it is funny to see

It was a massive shopping spree. I just wanted the darn canvas bag, DH was all for getting the shopping done.

Wow, sounds like it really poured but that is a great excuse to get your shopping done and I can think of much worse places to get trapped by a rainstorm!

You got some great souvies and I'm glad Em got some dinner!

The Mickey bars were the perfect way to top off the evening, but I'm not seeing a picture of Luke eating his!?!

Sounds like a very fun evening was had by all!

Oh and I'm glad you and Hannah got your soap from Basin, I'm still kicking myself over that one.....
Luke did not get a Mickey bar. I was a mean mom, I could not deal with him eating it. Basin was fun, I could have spent a fortune!

The girls are so cute in the mickey ears at the contemporary!
I like the little CS place there at the Contemporary. I think it was super fun to watch the monorail whiz by while snacking!

I love all your purchases. I insist on getting an ornament and an album each trip too. The puzzle is a great idea for those snowy winter days, I'm going to steal that idea from you (as well as many others I'm sure).

I love EoS and it is a must for us each trip. That stinks that they didn't get to play in the fountains. I remember your past pictures of them running around.

So lucky to be on the monorail. What a dream!!
There is a stroller rental place there now. I wanted to investigate if we could have used our length of stay rental there too, but I did not check. It was a bit trying, Emily was a bit of a pill at first after waking up and Luke is 20 lbs!

We have year ornaments for all our trips... one bit the dust this past year, but that is okay. It happens. Buying the album makes me eventually print pictures, I am waiting for a great deal and the photopass CD for that.

EoS never disappoints. It was yummy and I was hungry. I did not care what DH picked!

I just adored your pictures in the store you have some really cute kids and it looked like they had fun and ending the night with Mouse Ears...always a great way!

I think the canvas tote will be my school bag. I just pulled the one I have been using out and thought I would change. I figure having a Disney school bag will remind me why I go to work!

I love the Mickey Ice Cream bars, I had been waiting to have one!

I had my list... which MeMom's pictures always helped me add to. Honestly we did very little buying after that evening....I will share them later!

I almost bought that puzzle and looking at yours am regretting not getting it. Oh well. I miss the days when I could dress my girls alike. Hannah and Emily look darling in their princess tees and I love the picture of someone putting ears on the little man.
We have lots of princess tees. I know that it won't last forever, but I sure am enjoying it!

You guys look like you had a ball, and finishing up with Mickey bars sounds like the way to go! Doesn't WOD just get PACKED when it rains?? And it seems to rain anytime we go to DTD in the evening...Glad you found what you wanted!
I figured if I found something I liked better later we could return an item, but we did not. I liked having the down day on our arrival day, it was fun to relax!

WOD was crazy, but we were stuck. It was monsooning and the lightening was crazy. We just figured we could wait it out.

The pictures of everyone trying on hats are too cute!!! My favorites are the girls eating their Mickey Ice Cream Bars at the Contemporary! What a fun first night!
It was not the night I expected but it was great fun!
