Finally playing catch up after a busy weekend.



So cool that Candi got waved at ...

I may need to have a beer day at F & W next time. Since I usually partake in the cocktail area - I don't switch to beer while I am there.

Nice update! I know I have heard Sugar Ray's "Fly" but I don't recognize the names of the others. Guess I will have to check the others out on the internet and see if I just don't know the songs by their names.

Cool that Candi got waved at. And even cooler you are taking her to hear Blake Shelton!!!

Sugar Ray would be a good Eat-to-the-Beat show, more current than say "Herman's Hermits" and a few hits that people know. That's awesome that Candi got a shout-out from Mark McGrath, but gee, first Chip and Dale, now Mark McGrath -- are you getting jealous? Who's next? One of the Jammitors???

Actually, I've heard Mark McGrath interviewed on the radio and he seems like a very cool, down to earth guy.

Gosh, if you don't like Samuel Adams are you un-American? Maybe with all of those varieties I could find one, but I didn't like their regular lager when it first came out.

really i didnt know that, maybe she did have a crush on him.

nope no concert yet for her...3 new kids concerts? or other people?

I love Angry Orchard beer! It's probably one of the alcoholic drinks I really miss while being pregnant.

DH would like the Hops booth!
i think it helped it just got done raining so not that many people were around yet.

it is a good beer for the summer time,

giving up beer for a while is worth it when you see that little one for the first time.

when are you due again?

a beer day would be fun for you since you dont want to mix and i already saw the pics of how much of the other drinks you have, you might not make it out of WS on your own power.

you didnt tell me hermans hermits was playing there, i would book a trip for sure.

nope not jealous
if they keep coming at her, i might get some free passes out of it.

im sure you would like some of there beers, i like at least half of hteres that i try, some dark ones some lighter ones.

im not a fan of ther regular one as well, but there other flavors i like.

there summer beers are pretty good this year.

5 sangrias? Interesting. I know my DW would be interested.

she still talks about it and how it was soooooo cooooollll that he called her out and waved to her.

So what did you do? Heckle him? Storm the stage?

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.


Hi. Wow, what a great report. I have been reading it since yesterday and will be staying at AoA in August, love the pictures.
Last year in Disney I did the pick a pearl and got the same size, if you don't me asking what price range was the necklace? Did you get that in Disney? If so where? Thanks

I'm going to take a wild guess that this is sponsored by Sam Adams.
she gave me a drink of it and it was pretty good, but sadly we did nto find it at the center to buy a bottle.

no no fight i let her have her moment

no fights with blake, i think he would be cool to hang out with, he can call her out in the crowd if he wants.


highly sponsored by mr adams...
