I wish I took pictures of the bathroom. It was amazing. I would love to go back to Epcot one day and see the stuff we didn't get to see.

so isn't Test Track the BEST!!! except for what it does to your hair
The line was huge to see the Fairies. If it wasn't for the special button..we would of stipped seeing them. Test Track is awesome. Kylee went on it once and didn't like it, so Scott and I had to take turns watching her.

Mary is so sweet. How cool you got to go on a ride with her and test track at that.

Being in Epcot during the F&G festival is amazing isn't it? All the flowers and topiaries are so beautiful!

How cool you got to meet up with Mary, even if just to say hi!

I'm glad you faced your fears and took the ride on Soarin'.

TT 4 times??????
I think we could of spent our whole time there...lol..just kinding. We did stay longer than I thought we would.

I conquered a lot of my fears during this trip. Once I got the ok from Cardio to go on these rides I told myself I will not be afraid and I will go on rides.

I'm enjoying seeing all the scenery around Epcot as you travel to the different countries.

How did Korissa like visiting Japan? Did you have any sushi while you were there? Can't wait to see the pearls from the oysters that the girls picked out!
We did get to meet them. I skipped a few Countries or this trip report would never end...lol.

Korissa loved Japan. I on the other hand had to deal with a little crabby pants at this time. We ended up having dinner at the Tokyo Dining...so yes, she got her sushi. I will get the rest of the day up tomorrow.

Pick a Pearl

We finally made it to Japan to do the Pick A Pearl. The girls were so excited all day to do this. This was their one big thing they got to do. We go in and Kylee started right in with the fits. She was crying and flopping on the floor that she wanted to do the Pick A Pearl too. She had her big thing and she was too young to do this(ok..maybe not too young, but what is she going to do with a Pearl). I'm trying to listen to what the ladies that do the Pearl were saying, but than I had a kid hanging on my leg crying and having everyone looking at us. BTW...she had an attude all day. I knew she was way overtired, so I was trying to be patient with her, but enough was enough. I had to take her outside and gave her a stern talk. If this was her Wish trip we would of left and went back to GKTW, but this was Korissa's trip and she wanted to finish with Epcot...even though she was exhausted too. Anyways...Kylee finally calmed down and we watched the girls pick their Pearls.

The oyster tank



I told the girls to pick the smallest and hairiest Oyster...Per what I read on here. Korissa was first..



Than Kyra..and Ashlee



Korissa's oyster is on the left..Kyra in middle, and then Ashlee's is on the right



Opening up Korissa's..Not only did she get one, but 2 Pearls. It's Twins!!!!!







Opening up Kyra's Oyster..



Only one Pearl but it was a very pretty pink color.



Ashlee's











After the ceremony was done the girls went to go pick out their rings. They told us it would be done in a hour. We decided since it was 6:00pm to eat in Japan. I thought maybe the rest will help with Miss Crabby pants. She was still whinny and caring on. We ate at the Japan Dining. Scott and Korissa had sushi, I had the terikai chicken and beef, Steven, Scott, and Kyra had the Curry Udon soup, and Ashlee had just the Beef Udon soup. All was yummy. After dinner we picked up the rings.

Kyra's...I did take these pictures last night. I don't have a picture of Ashlee's


Korissa's Twins..modeled by Kyra's hand...lol



We left Japan and headed to the next World.

Kids being funny



After this picture the kids went up to a CM to look at his Pins and he started to talk with us. He was very nice. He wanted to know what Korissa was dealing with. We told him that Korissa and Kylee had Mitochondrial Diease and it affects the way they produce energy. He told us to hang on and he will be right back. He comes out with 2 icees for Korissa and Kylee. I thought that was really nice of him, but I did have 3 other kids. If you are going to do something for 2 than please do something for all, because now I had Steven and Kyra say...that's not fair and was upset that they were left out. We did tell him thank you and we moved on..and since Kylee took 2 sips and was done...Kyra and Steven shared the rest.

It started to get dark fast..




We finished up the Worlds and the kids wanted to do Test Track one more time so we headed over there.



Scott and kids on ride



The kids actually went on it twice. Once with me and the other with Scott since one of us had to sit out with Kylee. We were all exhausted and poor Korissa couldn't even walk anymore so we started to head out. I did catch a little bit of the fireworks.









We got back at the Villa by 10:00pm and again did our nightly routine of taking turns showering and me doing the nightly ironing for the next day and the load of laundry. I think we all crawled in bed at 11:30.

Up next....Sea World Day!!!

Passport pictures!!!

All caught up. Looks like a great day at Epcot. We have gone in April the last 2 years so it was sad not to be there this April to see the all the flowers.

We did the Pick a Pearl in December and before we went I purchased some Carriage necklaces that hold the pearls. It was a neat experience and I had one for DD7, my mom and of course me.

Looks like your day at Epcot was great...how fun to meet Mary!

Love the Pearls too. I got to do this in high school and I still have and love my ring. Glad your girls enjoyed it and sorry Kylee was not having any of it. Our kids are so close in age they tend to crash at the same time. Having such teens and younger ones must be a challenge sometimes.

Loving your TR...so fun to see your families trip after watching you plan it all!

That's fantastic that Korissa got twins in her oyster! Love both pictures of the pearl rings. Those will be keepsakes as a reminder of this wonderful wish trip!

Sorry that Kylee was being cranky and tired! That was great that the photopass photographer got her to smile. Love that picture of you all holding her!

That's great you went on Soarin' and Test Track! Epcot is a lot of walking and Korissa did pretty good to keep up until you left. Glad you got to see some of the fireworks on your way out!
