Wonderful evening to a relaxing day. I've never been to WPE before, but everyone raves about it, and that pizza looks really delicious.

Ugh, feeding the birds is always a mistake. Here at home, I always dread when vacationing families feed the seagulls at the beach. they have no idea that they'll begin attacking you! Can definitely see how that would make you wanna hurry up and leave.

I am so with you on the pool time. I had such wonderful weather in June and enjoyed the pool every afternoon. It was delightful.

We tried WPE this trip and it was delicious. Both the salad and the cheese pesto pizza sound amazing. I love pesto, so that sounds like its right up my alley!

Great end to another great day.

Sounds like a really great day! WPE always looks so good, we'll really have to make a point to get there one of these days!

For some reason, Disney birds really seem to bring out the worst in people. They'll sit right next to one of the signs saying not to feed them--feeding them!! So annoying.

Looking forward to more!

Being a guy I have to ask, what are Toms?

What is it with these girls and their Tom's? Caitlin has to get a pair at Curl each trip and is already deciding which to buy next month. What did she get painted on them? Caitlin wanted the Red Wings logo but the artists were too backed up.

Your dinners look so good! You know we love WPE too

Sounds like a great evening!

I have to tell you...last night, Brandon and I were talking about our DTD night. He was complaining because he doesn't want to eat at RFC again (neither do I), and I was trying to persuade him that there are lots of good places to eat. I told him we should eat at WPE because who couldn't like a place by Wolfgang Puck!?!
And then he said, "I know that name...but I have no idea who he is..."
So I told him that he invented the chinois salad! Still, I get this: .
So then I told him I really just wanted a good pizza, and could he just back me up on this one!? We're probably going there now, if the kids don't insist on some other random place. WIN!

Do you have a picture of the Toms? I didn't know someone there would paint them for you! How does that happen, exactly? Do you have to purchase the Toms from a certain store or what? I'm so interested in doing this, maybe for my kids! (Okay, or maybe for me)

I know! I know what Toms are! But the real question is... why, when she said she needs a design on her shoes and wanted to go back to DTD, didn't you say, "Okay, bye! Have fun!"

She's 19.

Admit it. The thought of her going without you to DTD made you realize you were ready for more fun.

Right?

Right.

I have to come clean here. I've never been to WPE. Maybe some day...

What makes it worse is our first on-sight stay was POR so it was just a boat ride away.

Great, now I don't know if I should serve you teppanyaki or my home made pizza. Did you know Ruby has told me not once, but twice that she wants you guys over for dinner? Hmmm..... maybe around our birthdays???

I think it's a rule that you have to stop.

Mmmmm that pizza from WPE looks awesome! So does your Haagen-Dazs treat for that matter, too bad about the birds being so bold though.

Yay more pool time! I didn't know you could get designs painted on Toms, how cute! I bought a pair, and they are really comfy, but I don't see how people can walk around Disney all day in them!

Yum WPE looks so good...I really have to go there!

Sounds like a great end to the day . Just out of curiosity where did Shan get the TOMS shoes painted? I think it would be awesome to have Disney style TOMS but don't know of any place that does toms art.

First let me say, that pizza looks sooooo good!

And I know I've said it before but I SWEAR Shanleigh needs to audition to be a princess one of these days. She SO has the look of Snow White, or really any of them. She's got the skin tone and an innocent, sweet face- she could so rock that!

Finally, bummer on your ice cream time being interrupted by the birds and such. I agree, people really need to follow the rules, it's for good reason.

Well, I look forward to your next update, hope you are all well there!

Carla

You really have to try it on one of your trips, I think you would love it!

It was really bad...and it wasn't like they were sparrows they were the grackels (not sure about the spelling) and they kept landing on the table and the chairs...it was a little startling!

So glad you enjoyed WPE as much as we do! We have yet to be disappointed!

Once we tried it the first time we were hooked! It's a must for us even if it's breakfast!

You got that right sista!!! The one family sitting at the table next to us were so bad...how do you expect kiddies to learn when the adults don't know better!

Your dinners look so good! You know we love WPE too
I can't imagine those two together shopping a DTD We would look like pack mules by the time they were done She got cherry blossoms on her pair of tan ones, however, like Caitlin, she wanted the Jets logo but they said they aren't allowed to do sports team because of some law So she picked the cherry blossom!

We think of you guys everytime we're there because it was Caitlin that turned us onto it in her first Dining Review...been hooked since!

Hilarious! Love that story...you are going girl, I feel it!!

I promise to post one tonight, I will have Shanleigh charge the camera battery when she gets home and by later this evening I will post a picture! Outside the Curl store they had a young man that had a couple of binders of designs with prices (her's was $20) and then, depending how backed up they are, you can wait for them or come back! She bought her's at the Curl store and that's where we had to pay for the design and then bring him out the receipt so I'm not sure if you could take your own pair, but I honestly don't see why not

You and Shanleigh sound so alike...she said she thinks her cousins need a pair each now!

I know! I know what Toms are! But the real question is... why, when she said she needs a design on her shoes and wanted to go back to DTD, didn't you say, "Okay, bye! Have fun!"

She's 19.

Admit it. The thought of her going without you to DTD made you realize you were ready for more fun.

Right?

Right.


You know me too well....can't get anything past you

I knew it!



I have to come clean here. I've never been to WPE. Maybe some day...

What makes it worse is our first on-sight stay was POR so it was just a boat ride away.


We'll both have to work on Ruby...if she knows you're not going to do it commando style and maybe a certain other family went at the same time and the mom's in both families just took it easy sometimes, we could make a go of it???

Great, now I don't know if I should serve you teppanyaki or my home made pizza. Did you know Ruby has told me not once, but twice that she wants you guys over for dinner? Hmmm..... maybe around our birthdays???


[SIZE="3"][COLOR="blue"]Awww....she is pretty awesome (so are you before you think I'm favouring Ruby) and around our birthday's would be great! BTW...we're not fussy eaters as I'm sure you figured out by seeing Jeff in person[SIZE]


Absolutely beautiful shot. And I don't say that lightly.


It's the one I have on my desk at work...I just loved it!!! Thanks!!!

Oh, yeah! That bulky uncomfortable thing hanging around my neck... :


When I bought an HSC Lottery Ticket I was hoping for the camera but instead we won the Sony Portable Ipod something...it's in Shan's room!

I think it's a rule that you have to stop.

Okay, it's my rule... but still.


It's a great rule!

Really? I had no idea.




Who?

Speaking of confused.....I had a moment there when posting apparently!


Wow! It'd have to be really bad to force me to walk away from ice cream.


At first it was kinda funny thinking about Jeff freaking out here, but then, karma got the best of Shanleigh and then it wasn't so funny!

And another wonderful update. Thanks, Jacquie!
Thanks...tell Ruby and the girls we said hi!

She found them really hot the day she wore her black ones to the park so after that it was evening only!

You really do...so yummy! Wish we were there now!

Right outside the Curl store! They are set up to the left of the entrance as you go in! You'll have to check it out on your next trip!

LOL...you are so funny my friend! A little girl asked her on one of our days if she was a princess when we were sitting having dinner...it was the cutest thing and I will go into detail in the TR but it was priceless.

I was having sea salt caramel ice cream...my favourite flavour ever, and I couldn't finish it...not happy!

We are doing great and hope you guys are too!

DTD in the evening makes me a little crazy with the crowds so we decided to go early, have dinner and get out as fast as possible...didn't happen as you could see
