I found that I just loved it back there at the Troubadour Tavern. It is a nice shady place to rest and there are clean bathrooms.

6/17 part 3

When last we left our intrepid pair were on a train bound for parts unknown.....would they make their destination? Did they have a destination in mind? Or was this just going to be a three hour tour?

Honestly when we got on the train we ha no real plans. We were just going around the park and figure out where we were going. I suggested going to DTD for a little adult libations. Meaning beer to Weird Bike Guy. He jumped right on it. This might well have been the part of the trip he had anticipated the most. When we got to Tomorrowland we disembarked the train and noticed that Innoventions was open because it had not been the last time he and I had wanted to visit it. And while at Innoventions we were joined by Loho and Bawb, and this is where we lost them. They discovered that there were video games to be played and they pretty much stayed there the rest of that day.






These are the sights that WBG found interesting. Frankly it all bored me silly. I just find the whole thing a waste of my time.

We went across to the little store across from there and it is a hast shop now. We were still on the epic hat search. Still no hat was found but I found some treasures that I had been looking for, and some I hadn't.


I had to have these. I love my Minnie ear headbands but I wanted these clips.

I am even wearing them right now.

I thought these were adorable and they have been used. There is another pair of pink ones in my purse. I am wearing a pair right now.





Our next stop was the Monorail to DTD. Little did we know that this would be the last Monorail of the day. It had broken down right after we rode it. Nothing personal I am sure.

We had one destination in mind as we went and it was indeed the Uva Bar. Now I have wanted to go here since the first time I saw it years ago, and I was finally getting to go there.


I am a believer of using local businesses and this beer was from a Napa Brewery. It was a good beer too.

WBG had a Fat Tire beer. Hmm go tell.

While we were relaxing I was reading the specialty drink menu, and they had this drink called a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, that reminded me of my younger more carefree day so I decided that I had to have one.


Umm with another frosty beer mind you it was warm. Oh my was this a good drink. I love a good shooter. I had to laugh at our cocktail waitress when she warned that the drink was a shooter. We explained that we knew. I must be looking old or something. Should have worn something that shows my tattoos. Long story short....too late....the shooters were to die for. I so recommend them. If you are 21 or over go to the Uva Bar and have yourself a PUDC it was sinfully good.

So, after that we kind of just wandered around and I got to visit every store I had ever wanted to visit but hadn't for whatever reason I hadn't. Namely I can think of at least three reasons, but they were busy and I was going to take advantage of it. It wasn't as exciting as I had thought it would be. WBG was feeling a bit on the hungry side so we went to Wetzel's Pretzel's so that he could have a pretzel dog. The kids and I had had them before when we were at the local mall but he hadn't and it is his type of food. I thought they tasted funny but he didn't and enjoyed himself. We would regret this stop later.

We finally ended up at the World Of Disney store in DTD. It is the ultimate store of anything Disney. I spent probably close to an hour just looking around. I did get some pretzels for snacking on at a later time and then we were waiting for the kids to join is for our trip back to the hotel and eating dinner before coming back.

Weird Bike Guy finally found something he wanted. Any wonder?
WBG and I sat outside across from the WoD store on one of the planters waiting. Somehow I ended up with the camera and I took this picture of the GCH over the store. And these other pictures were taken.



Berht

My pirate WBG.

Nerdy Cookies and Berht goofing off with some of the Kettle Corn I got at the stand nearby. It was great.


During this jocularity the boys were busy shopping in WoD. Bawb had a big purchase to make. He wanted Toy Story loot and he was on a mission to find some. He ended up getting a Buzz there. We all headed to the tram and then to the hotel before dinner so that we could rest and go back. It wasn't to be because WBG and I both started feeling rather ill. So yet another early night in. Sorry kids!!

I hated the stuff on the top floor at Innoventions (the video games, etc.) but I really, really loved the Dream Home and discovering the things in the home. And it's a perfect place to cool off on a hot day. Definitely in my book as something I would do again. To each his own

Love the pics from the Tomorrowland Monorail Station.

I would have loved to play with the things in the house but it was so slammed busy and you couldn't get near a thing. And the majority of the time we were there was spent upstairs and well you know we share the same opinion on it.

Thank you I love those too. Especially the one of the Matterhorn.

Sorry I just threw it over my laptop to get a picture because I realized we hadn't got a picture. It is Mickey on a bike t shirt. And your head is on Mickey's body.

LVE the clips!!!! They're soooooooo cute!!!

I have to admit it......I've never stepped into the Innoventions Building. The boys went last trip....so they were Tyler's pics during the trip report last spring. Other than seeing TR's......I wouldn't have a clue what's in there. With the twins in tow....we may find this place a nice "resting" & cool spot to check out.

I think the clips are perfect for little ones. And obviously old ladies like me too. What I like about them is how easy they are to put in and I was able to wear them all day and they didn't annoy me the way a hairband does after a while.

Innoventions is a great place to go cool off with the little ones. There are plenty of places to sit in there, none are really quiet but there are a lot of cool places to sit.

Okay question answered and I am going to now start our last day.

The day started real early for WBG and I. We were up off and on all night long being ill. I believe we had food poisoning. Not fun. Unfortunately for him he had it worse. When he realized that I was still going to go with the kids to the park instead of sending them with my mom he decided to try and go with us. We got kind of a slow start being sick and all. It took us over an hour waiting in line to get to park. I would rather go in later than we did that day the parking is easier. But enough of that. The first place we went was to have breakfast at the Riverbelle. It was time for Nerdy Cookies to have her Mickey pancakes. By this time I was feeling better, and WBG figured he would eat too so we ate. Meanwhile the girls were preparing for their disboard meet with WDWtraveler27. Come to find out he had just left the Riverbelle.

Everyone split up and went their way. Belan was taking Boo to Fantasyland again, the boys headed to their new favorite place, Innoventions, mom was going shopping and back to the hotel and Scotty and I? We went to Pirates of the Caribbean.



As soon as we were done here we went in search of my Give a Day, Get a Day prize. I had fully intended from the beginning to get the fast passes for everyone but since no one else was interested I decided I would get myself the gift. Now in order to find it I stopped by City Hall, which if you have ever dealt with City Hall you know they are always busy. I left WBG on a bench in the shade as he was feeling really sick at this point. I found out at City Hall that I had to go across the esplanade to DCA to get my gift. I made a point of getting us anniversary pins because this trip was on the almost exact same dates as our honeymoon 18 years ago. Okay so that is cool, I was gonna get WBG and go. Well, as they say the best laid plans of mice and men.....I left him in the shade and I was off to DCA by myself. I should have taken the camera, I left it with him. I did have my phone so there are a few pictures from my foray.


I love the compass in the center of the esplanade.

So I went to the shop in DCA, and right now the name escapes me. I originally was just going to get my gift and go back to WBG but I figured he was in a good place so I shopped too.

I saw this adorable shirt so I picked it up for my great nephew Jason.

Here he is in it.


Here it is, my GAD gift. When I went to get it they made a big deal out of the fact that they had to get the AP one. I had no clue they had different ones. All I know is that I thought it was beautiful.

I bought a few other things I don't have pictures of right now but I may add later. I left DCA and went back to find WBG. When I got there he was looking pretty green, so I suggested that he and I go visit Mr Lincoln so he could cool off a little in hopes of him feeling better. I had high hopes but Mr Lincoln is not the miracle I had hoped for. So I sent WBG back to the hotel with my treasures and our anniversary pins on the ART bus and I went to join the girls and Luis Enrique, aka WDWtraveler27.

So sorry to hear you and WBG got sick! Not fun. And here I was hoping to have a pretzel dog - now I not so sure.

The last installments look great though. Your family is adorable, though careful, the older ones might be offended by that. Boo is a doll and while I can see why she liked the Tinkerbell doll I agree that the Boo one would be perfect. May have to find one for myself.

Anyways, great to hear more from you. Hope things are going well at home. Oh, and how is your sons leg doing? Hoping you hear something about getting it taken care of soon.
