Looks like a nice time at “Ohana.
The pic of Noelle after being hopped up on ice cream is too cute.
Great update and pics.

Looks like a great meal at O'hana. One of these days I'm going to try that place. Everyone seems to love it.

Noelle just seems to be having a ball. Really cute pictures in this chapter.

Happy birthday Parker!

With Candi wearing her Hawaiian dress, I expected to see you wearing your matching shirt...but I like your Mickey/Donald Hawaiian shirt.

Oh man, now I'm hungry for potstickers and noodles and broccoli and meat and bread pudding. Mmmmm.

Happy 5th, Parker!

glad you liked it, i occasionally see someone who doesnt like it at all and never want to go back

they had a great time there, the interactive dinner stuff is a big hit with them.

glad to have another hoosier on board.

we love going to indy to events and so forth its a fun city to walk around.

I am glad you enjoyed your potstickers, I like the wings....


And dessert... unless the fireworks are going on and your tablemates eat it before you turn around... I was saved a taste.
we usually dont have a problem getting a table there quick...we generally get a reservation within the first hour it opens so not much backup time.

i like the wings as well, but much quicker to pop a whole pot sticker in your mouth...and i really enjoy there noodles and vegtables.

thats when you grab the bowl and hold it in your lap while turned around.

I could have a dinner of just the pot stickers, bread, noodles and broccoli. Starch starch and more starch please! With one of those drinks in the hurricane glasses on the side.

Lovely picture of the 4 of you, what a relaxed and happy looking evening.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PARKER!
she certainly did, she likes to be the center of attention.

those would make a great meal option nothing wrong with extra starch in disney you walk it all off

it was another great evening and not over yet. more fun ahead.


thanks he had a great birthday.

Very nice father-daughter pic, too!
it does seem like just yesterday he was born...it has gone fast but we have done so much in the 5 years with him.

i really like that picture of us as well thanks.

hope the chapter links helped you out and you didnt have to scroll through each page.

very few people did look, i think it being a loud restaurant helped not draw to much attention our way. but that was another reason that we kept taking him out as to not make it too much a situation...just hope that moment is behind us on future trips.

we try and get pictures at certain spots each trip, that is one of them. just have to keep making reservations at whispering canyon for a reason to go there.

Can't wait to catch up... hopefully tomorrow.
the one where just candi i went to? that was turkey run state park.

we have been to brown county state park, that is another fun one...i have an update on that inn, i think in the previous trip report i had.

Happy birthday, Parker! I forgot that his and Will's bdays were so close. We had Will's party today at my mom's, and tomorrow I get to be a normal mom instead of a teacher at his preschool birthday thanks to an unused snow day tomorrow. Kindergarten for our two boys next year...wow!
hope you can fit in a trip to the water parks, im sure they would love it.

that is another place we really try and hit each trip.

i know i cant believe that they are old enough for school, but im sure they will do great, he loves preschool now...only bad part is it cuts into the middle of the year trips.

Hope Parker had a wonderful birthday party!

thanks, once she gets going it is hard to stop her, i pushed her chair away from the table so she wouldnt hit her head, and she still went nuts throwing her head around.

thanks he had a great birthday party

Slowly catching up on everyone's TR's.

I love your recap of your first week at Disney--the pictures show all the fun you were having.

Sounds like a great day at the Water Park. I had to laugh as I watched Noelle in her high chair falling asleep. It amazes me where little ones can just fall alseep.

We are FINALLY, for the first time, trying Ohana in August. I've heard mixed reviews on it and was always hesitant to try it but figured we would decide for ourselves. Those potstickers look really yummy.

Love the family picture at the Poly.
