Your family is absolutely adorable!!! Enjoy those little ones. They grow up way too fast.

Chapter 54. My Precious

First another apology for taking so long between updates, was really busy lately and was gone for 5 days at the indy 500 (which was a blast)


Chapter 54. My Precious

It had come time for the long awaited destination for epcot.

Even though we did not allow each other to buy something for an anniversary gift that was one day before we left on the trip, i still broke the rule and bought her something.

My gift was the pick a pearl for candi.

She was really excited.

Before we left i had given her a necklace to put the pearl in, but that will come later after the other pictures.

So we went inside and paid for the pick a pearl.

We were given a number and told there was 4 others in front of us...

So we walked around the shop for a few minutes and what seemed like less than 10 minutes we were having our number called to come back up for the event.

The area around the pick a pearl was packed.

But not with people waiting there turn just people trying to see and push in on everyone to get close.

We had to nicely (which translates to asked a few times nicely then ask a few time not as nice to tell people we need to get through to pick the pearl, and if they wouldnt mind moving over so our family could see the whole event.

Finally we were able to make enough room for candi and parker to see, and i was just to the side with noelle in the stroller.







basically it started with candi picking a pearl, i told her about picking ones that are not as pretty which i had heard translates to ones that are better than others.



not sure what she was saying here, i have it on video but not with me. so the next few will just be part of the ceremony





the next one she had asked her if she sees the pearl, candi said no, then she moved the things in the shell around a little and showed it to her.


here she is digging it out of the oyster


and showing the pearl to candi.


what is left of the discarded oyster after the pearl was taken out.


this was a extra picture so i could remeber the price in case anyone wanted to know the price of the pick a pearl.
also because her pearl is now sitting in the salt/what crystal stuff to clean it off the rest of the way.



and banging the mighty drum after her pearl was out.



marking the bag with the size and bagging it up for her.


she got a 7 1/4 mm pearl, which the lady said was bigger than normal.



and here is the necklace that i got for candi before we left, she loved it, it is the Cinderella carriage for her necklace, it opens up and then clasps shut with the pearl inside it.

good thing her pearl wasnt any bigger as the cage did not close all the way but i was able to get the necklace through the part in the top that holds the cage shut so there is no way it can come out now.

candi was thrilled with it.


in case you cant tell from this expression.


we did run into a drunk lady at the pick a pearl that almost ended up in the pearl tank she was wobbling so much.

but despite that we had a great experience there and i would recommend it.

if you want info on the necklace just let me know ill send it to

from there we went outside and stopped at the japan booth.


i think candi was still on cloud 9 after her pick a pearl cause she walked up to these girls to order her sandwich and they said they dont work there just eating there food, there was another stand on the other side they pointed her too that was open.




after going to the right side, she then proceded to get her snack.


it was a very good sukiyaki beef pan, which is a marinated thinly sliced rib eye with sauteed onions and teriyaki sauce...we loved it.


the picture didnt turn out the best but that sandwich was awesome we both loved it.
it started to spit rain a little bit so we rushed over to the japan store area in the back by the kid cot station...i had never been over here before and it was neat to see what was around.


since we were in the area we stopped so the kids could do there kid cot station.



since it was pouring out pretty good parker was able to color a good amount of his duffy and noelle lost interest pretty quickly so she entertained herself by playing in the window sill



the rain didnt last long and soon enough we were ready to leave for our next spot.

I am interested in the necklace. I meant to do Pick A Pearl on our last trip, it didn't happen. That sandwich looked yummy. I have never had anything from the Japan kiosk. But during Flower & Garden I did try frushi from the food kiosk in Japan that they had. Let's say it was interesting.

Loved seeing pearl experience.

Looks like she got a great size one

I have always wanted to do that, but forget.

Can you give me the info on the necklace? So pretty. Thanks

Good move. We've done that before. She usually gets something really nice and expensive, and I get a Dunkin Donuts gift card or something.

Because, you know, they're more important.

I love doing Pick A Pearl, it's so much fun! And yes, you can get a pearl too big for that necklace. It took me four tries to get one small enough. Not that I minded trying over and over!

That sandwich looks really good. Do you remember if the onions were put on top or mixed in with the meat? I'm not a fan of onions so I'm wondering if I could get it without them.

i sent you a PM with the info in it.
i wanted to do it on the trip prior but forgot as well, so i figured if i bought the necklace before hand it would help me remember better...and it did.

really what did you do with all the extra pearls? sell them to people in line just watching you.

they were mixed in, but you could not even tast them or see them, so not sure if they were just cut really small or what...at least i think they were mixed in since i didnt see them on top.

hmm wonder if they were there at all. false advertisment.

Dan, I've always wanted to do the Pick a Pearl and somehow we always forget or it is way too crowded when we do think about it. But after seeing Candi's face, I am determined to get it done of the my three trips this year.

Thanks for the text message...I appreciate it.

OMG!!! I love that Cinderella Charm.. I would love that too. no wonder she was so happy!!! That's funny about going up to those girls. LOL

I also noticed in your signature that you have stayed at CBR and CSR.. which one did you like better? We are currently booked at CBR but I am just not as excited as I normally am about resorts.... Which do you think is best? Our boys will be 5 and one month shy of 2 during our trip.. We even thought about doing POP and saving some $ but I cant make up my mind.
