With everyone back at the motel & changed out of their wet clothes....we packed into the van & drove over to the Paradise Pier Hotel. When you enter the lobby.....surfer Goofy is there to greet you.....Photo Op!!




Like these since they have all 7 of my kids in them!

Tyler snapped a few pics as we waited for the restaurant to open for dinner (our ressie was for 5:30pm):

The menu:



The sign for the new character breakfast hosted by Mickey Mouse:



Decor:



We were seated & they got our drink orders & drinks out to us very quickly!! Here's one of the smoothies (I do remember Derek getting a Smoothies, but the waitress dropped it right behind him & it splattered all over....the people at the table behind us got the worst of it....but I had it on my legs & I was across the table from Derek).....oopie!!



Ty & yet another self portrait....lol:



Ty was bored or found something interesting on the drink menu:






Some random pics of the family as we waited for our dinners:













Next post will have the kids making their own pizzas & hamming it up for the camera!

So the kids chose to do the Make your Own Pizzas!! Last year Anthony did this & he had so much fun....Addy remembered & wanted to do it as well this time. No funny chef hats this time......sniff sniff.....lol












Here's Anthony's pizza:



Here's Addy's pizza:



Here the kids are taking their pizzas up to the chef to cook them in their brick oven:






I'm not sure who did these with the kids....but they cracked me up....what a bunch of hams!!

Addy's beautiful sausage pizza with a side of green beans:




Anthony's spicy pepperoni pizza with a side of fruit:

I remember telling everyone to make faces...but going back & looking at these....you'd think we were all punch drunk.....lol What a crazy group!!













So we've never done it before....but decided it was time to order.........THE KITCHEN SINK!! It's a huge sundae with 10 scoops of ice cream, chocolate & caramel topping, Chocolate chip cookies, Brownies, Nestle Crunch Bar, Sprinkles, Cherries & Whip Cream......a big sink filled with deliciousness!!





This is what was left......10 people is just about the right amount of people to tackle this bad boy!!



6 ADULTS, 2 KIDS, 3 NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS, 3 SMOOTHIES, 1 KITCHEN SINK + TAX + TIP= $168.21 less 15% AP Disc = $150.70
PCH Grill is a hidden gem in the Paradise Pier Hotel. I think people miss coming to this restaurant since it's not in the parks or DTD. They may come for the character meal....but both times we've done those here....it's a very small group of people. The food & service is very good. They dub themselves as California style food....very very tasty & affordable pricing for large families. Once we found this restaurant last year...it has become a favorite of everyone in our family (of picky eaters!!)


These pics were taken outside as we waited for the Valet to bring the van around:





After we got back to the motel....Tyler, Mike, Anthony & Addy went back over to the park. They rode BTMRR, the train, Space Mtn & Buzz Lightyear. Tyler went back to the motel & Mike ran kids to DCA to check out the Glow Fest & then brought them back for bed.

This concludes Day 4!!! The next set will be from an Off-Disney day as we try out Knott's Berry Farm.

I love the crazy face pictures. I also really love the picture with the rocks. Okay, I am a nerd when it comes to things like pictures of rocks, there is so much to see in them. Yes, I am a nerd for nature.

We try to get to this every trip....but poor planning last year got us there at opening but leaving early to make a breakfast reservation. We picked up a wheelchair for Betty as she was having issues with her hips & knees. She really didn't want to do it but I think secretly she enjoyed it!! The lines were a tad long....surprised me since it was Wednesday & should be a lighter day.

I have a question? The lines for the turnstiles were THIS long at 7:30 am?? That is incredible with it being that early before park opening at 8! Did they open a few minutes early to wait at the rope at main street?

I am going to have to get there super super early if the lines were this long a half hour before opening....yikes! Trying to get my plan together....

Leaving tomorrow!!

Yup we were there just before 7:30....I was surprised by the length of the lines....especially since it was a Wednesday & that is typically a lighter day year round!

UGH!!! I got a warning email saying yesterday that I was nearing my limit on photobucket...so I went to my 2nd account for more uploads. I got another email tonight (now keep in mind....I quit using the 1st acct) & they said I had exceeded so all my pics from that acct are gone in my PTR & TR!!! I upgraded so they're supposed to be reinstated....but I don't know how soon.....THIS REALLY SUCKS!!!!

Oh my gosh...I just caught completely up on your TR.

Your family is just lovely. Everyone seems so patient with each other...I just love the shots of the older boys with the little ones, being wonderful big brothers. Also, the way you have family systems in place where you trade off and some go back to the room with what seems like no arguments is just wonderful.

It's so obvious there is a whole lot of love in that family of yours. It's humbling.

Thank you very much! We had a discussion during the planning stages on how we would handle the nap/bedtimes for the twins & kids. Everyone agreed to make 2 in charge for the day & not have 2 at nap & 2 different ones at bedtime. This did work out & everyone knew when they would be on "duty"....so no surprises. It did feel like you missed a lot of the day when on duty....but it was fair & equal & all worked out in the end.

We are very close & we survived....so that's a testiment in itself!!

Gonna be a little break before I get the next posting up.....I upgraded my photobucket acct because all my earlier pics have disappeared for using to much bandwidth........unfortunately it upgraded the wrong acct so I am now working on uploading all those photos again. It's a lengthy project but at least it will put all my disney trip photos on one acct!!! Will check in tomorrow!!
