as i sit here at the horsespital waiting for my shift to begin, i am overcome with a fit of hilarity at the sight of brittany planking that troll. she just cracks me up with every planking photo. that girl was born to plank. just a guess, but i'm thinking that viking wasn't looking for love. methinks he had his eye on your school bread. but if he made a move for that heavenly pastry my money would be on you, especially if you were packing heat (i.e. 357 comb) from your photos i see not much has changed. vikings still plunder,loot,kill,and like the company of ladies. also it's nice to see you turning your life around. seeing you sharing your school bread with a chinese goat really warmed my heart. me, i have to watch the norvay film every trip. my ancestors would probably be a little p.o.'d if i didn't. anyways i enjoy watching it. i'm with you on those norvay fragrances. i've been buying Geir for several trips now. i'm currently out, which pleases my wife immensely. for some reason she detests it. but come september i'll be smelling like a norwegian. that troll topiary bears an uncanny resemblance to me, even to the 4 toes and 4 fingers. not to mention that nose. you got some great pics. ya gotta love those sunny florida days.

i used to go into the stave church and listen to the music and let my thoughts wander to the land where my folks came from. before they changed the display they used to have a picture of a churchyard. i could feel an emotional pull as if my ancestors were calling from that distant land. holy cow! would you look at me getting all mystical. well it turns out they weren't calling at all. i had indigestion from eating at the nine dragons earlier. anyways i went into the puffin's roost and asked about the music they played in the church. they didn't have it in the store but they ordered me one. it came a few weeks later. i still listen to it although i don't get mystical much these days. to prove my point. i concur completely that brittany was spot on with that troll topiary; right down to the iphone he had in his left hand and those buck teeth.

I fell behind there for a bit but it looks like I'm all caught up for now!

I absolutely love all of your pictures, they're so unique! Haha, and I will probably steal the 'be that statue" idea for the next trip, it;s just awesome!!

Looks like a great Epcot morning so far, with lots of snacks of course, as that's all Epcot's about!

That's awesome! Prior to reading your TR's I might have had the same reaction to seeing anyone play Be That Statue/Topiary!

Yay for Norvay!

Subbing! I have to agree...that Norway movie is pretty intense. I LOVE the Be that Topiary game - we have totally played that in my fam too. Also love the Space Mountain photos - too funny! You guys do the best poses in photos. Looking forward to more!

what i wouldn't give to be riding big thunder mountain instead of riding to work. i'd finish the wildest ride in the west and mosey on down to casey's corner for that all american hot dog,french fries(with cheese sauce),a big ole soda pop,and sit outside and take in the sights and sounds of my happy place. my wife called earlier and said they hit the lottery. they all chip in and get tickets from georgia. well turns out after they divy up and taxes they each get around $10.00. if they have been 6 more zeros on there i'd have told the horsespital " adios, i'm off to the world for a month". well, a fella has gotta have a plan and a dream. ah, one day!

Brittany is seriously the Disney Planking Queen! Every trip will bring a new thing to plank. I seriously need to purchase all the Laila products. I approve of you purchasing more Geir products this sept.
I wish my ancestors came from Norway! I would feel an even stronger love towards the pavilion. You got the music?! That CM was super nice to do that!

I LOVE NORWAY!!!!
Thank you so much!!!!

Seriously I would give anything to be in the Magic Kingdom tonight, listening to the "singing bushes" and taking in the atmosphere. Congrates on the $10 winnings! Hopefully she didn't spend it on one thing.

YES! I hope you have a ball with the game as much as we do!

A Nice Stroll Around The World


We had a nice relaxing walk around the showcase, next up the outpost. There were drums to be played and creepy things to take pictures with.
Brittanys got friends on the other side!



We then found our way in Germany



While we were browsing the stores Alicia and Brittany became fascinated by the pickle tree and the pickle ornament tradition.





Our next stop was the wonderful USA, who just happened to have one of my favorite disney character in topiary form.



and for your enjoyment we may have played another round of Be That Topiary



I came prepared by wearing my toy story crew neck and toms



Goodbye America



As we were walking past Morocco we noticed that Aladdin and Jasmine were out. We didnt stop because we were on a mission to make it around the showcase and get some food



So goodbye Morocco, hello France.
Once arriving in France we noticed that Belle was out as well. Only this Belle was a very familiar Belle, she was the Belle who we surprised the previous night over in the Magic Kingdom. But what am I saying&.there is really only ONE Belle.



Brittany wanted to get a crepe so we got in line while Alicia and Andy went into the gift shop in search of a tshirt. With a sugar crepe in hand we went in search of a place to relax.



While Brittany enjoying her crepe a lady came up to her and asked where she got it. A little awkward but were always glad to help other Disney guests.



Alicia and Andy came out with no bag in hand, which means their searching was unsuccessful. As we made our way to the UK we notice the crowd that was started to form.





Its a bird, Its a plane



Its PETER PAN!!!





Tik Tok Tik Tok&



This was a fail on the be that topiary&we arent even looking the right way.
Lets try that again



While we were leaving the UK we noticed the ever famous sky writing.



What ever could it mean? YOUR PREGNANT!? Nope
As we headed back towards future world you should have seen all the people stopping to look up at the sky taking videos and photos. It seemed like they were all new to this whole sky-writing thing. Alicia ruined the secret and blurted out what it was going to say and one teenage boy got real mad. Like 99.9% of the time its about Jesus.

Goodbye Flower and Garden Festival its been fun!




Before we left we tried to get Alicia into the Butterfly home but she was not giving in. She HATES butterflies and anything buggy.



We finally made it back to future world






Continue to Next Post

Love all these pictures of the topiary! I would never even think of doing that ever. I love the one where you are being the crocodile. Especially how it happens you notice the sky writing right after taking the picture lol

Love the people who are new to the whole skywriting thing. Though sometimes I think the people who fly those planes need to be more original. A huge Mickey in the sky maybe or some Disney phrase. You're flying over Disney for goodness sake!

Mmmmm, Crepes! So good and I never got to have one on my last trip :P

Can't wait to read more!

just finished reading your update. world showcase is always a favorite. the shops and the food in particular. your photo of the pickle tree reminded me of my best friends wife. her ancestry is czech/german and she always put up pickles every year out of their garden. so it was only fitting that we buy her a pickle ornament from the german pavilion. she hangs it on their christmas tree every year. that photo of the crowd at the uk pavilion, all i can say is who is that chick in the middle with the shades and funky hat? wow, that's one hot mama! you might have intended a crowd shot but you have put all us fellas in a tizzy with that innocent little photo. you needed some of me and my brother's homemade pixie dust. a little of our concoction and you could have been on the roof with peter. thanks for your approval for buying more Geir. the better half might put me on the couch til i use it up, but sometimes there is a price to be paid.

I FINALLY smelled Laila during this past trip in June. It. Was. AWESOME! I sprayed a ton on one of those tester strips and stuck it in our suitcase later on. I should find it tomorrow and see if it still has that scent. While we were in the shop, I told my husband about it, and he was like, "Why don't you get one?" Haha, then I showed him the price.
