It's a great place to eat. Very small, so I recommend eating there early in the day, otherwise it may be hard to get in. The kids sundaes are too cute and they loved them.

Thanks! I think I mentioned it in my PTR, but forgot to mention it here. She just turned six.

Haha @ Joaquin's exaggerated sneezing. I think I can relate this to some people I know, but I won't elaborate as it is not a very pretty subject to talk about. So let's move on shall we...

Awwww... the Beach Club looks so nice, I totally want to stay there someday or anywhere on the BoardWalk for that matter

Beaches n' Cream looks so nice! I've heard so many good things about it and it seems to haunt me. The regular lunch food looks good and the Ice Cream looks even better. I like how it looks to have a bubbly candy shop feel to it, something to keep myself eating the food. Any Kitchen Sinks while you were there?

And poor Wicket... he seemed to have been pulled in many directions throughout this meal and then he ends up on the floor holding the balloon. Poor little guy But at least he behaved

Can't wait to read more!

The Boardwalk area is definitely one of my favorites. I love staying in that area.

Beaches and Cream is awesome and the atmosphere is very 50's soda shop. There was one kitchen sink when we were there. The kids were all excited when the lights started flickering for it.

I realize I did abuse poor Wicket at this meal. But I made it up to him later in the week when I took him home to Endor.

Joaquin took his map reading responsibilities very seriously. But it's a good thing we didn't let him guide us, because goodness knew where we would have ended up!

Hi Lessa! Welcome aboard.

I know. Beaches and Cream pictures just seem to do that to people.

I have a Wicket too! (Although we changed his name by deed poll to Chubb Chubb). Hope he behaves better than Yeti.

How gorgeous is your nephew? And so well behaved!

Really enjoying reading another report starring you and Jason!

Is the No way Jose as big as it looks?

Thanks for joining this one!

Wicket does prove to be a little better behaved, but marginally....

Good choice changing his name to Chubb Chubb!

Joaquin is a really good little boy. Only has a few moments of overall crabbiness.

Yes, the No Way Jose is really as big as it looks. Roughly the size of my head I would say.

Oh my gosh, I love your nephew's cheeks! Haha, and your Ewok mascot!

Oy, your screening in the airport makes me NOT look forward to flying for our Disneymoon. Those security people sounded a little power hungry. Or maybe they were just having a bad day.

I love Joaquin's furrowed brow as he plays his Cars game!

I thought the thing about your dad not being able to do anything on his own was funny. For whatever reason, when my mom's at home (or if it's just my dad and me at home), he seems to forget how to use a microwave, and we have to do it for him. But when he's by himself, he's never had a problem!

I totally agree about the stroller issue. It's the person pushing it! And I know that in crowded situations or in excited situations, things happen. I know they might accidentally push a stroller into a person or someone might accidentally step in front of the stroller's path. But can't people just say sorry and move on? It doesn't have to be such a big to do.

AWWWWW, so cute that Joaquin hugged that stranger!!!

I would LOVE to share a No Way Jose with Howard, but alas, we are both lactose intolerant! I can have some ice cream, but it can also get me really sick and nauseous. I just want to be there at Beaches and Cream because of the atmosphere. It looks like ice cream would taste SO much better there!

Joaquin's cheeks are pretty fabulous, I must say. Ha ha.

I think the security lady was just having a bad day or something. Who knows. Normally everything at Milwaukee airport is easy as pie, but this time, not so much.

My dad definitely has that sickness. He is perfectly capable of doing things when he's alone, but get him with anyone else and he's suddenly lost his ability to do anything.

I feel so bad that you guys are lactose intolerant, only because you miss out on Beaches and Cream! You're totally right, ice cream just tastes better there.
