Thanks for reading! And welcome back. The movie was great. Not the best movie I've ever seen but it was really pretty and the story/acting was good. Mila Kunis was awesome. I'm excited about Monsters University too!

Sorry about the nightmares.... I know! They need to do a special at WDW.

Thank you! He was just amazed by all the fishies and "meemos".

I can't believe I forgot to tell you guys about my feet! Remember the starting of those blisters? Well, they just kept getting worse. And the band-aids wouldn't stay on b/c it was humid and my feet were wet. By around 11am, the time we were heading towards World Showcase, I decided I needed to stop these things in their tracks! So I headed into Mouse Gears and bought some flip flops. Not the best walking shoes but I didn't care as long as they weren't rubbing on those blisters! Here are the shoes I got....



They were super comfy and I wore them again during the trip after this day. I don't know what was with my crocs....never had a pair do that before!

I took this picture of my feet when I got home later that evening. Nice, huh??



It actually looks worse than it felt. They didn't really bother me again the rest of the trip. But they were painful that day!

Okay, back to the report! We are heading to World Showcase....towards Mexico!

We were all thirsty so I headed to the little F&G kiosk to get a specialty margarita for me and a juice for Seth - some sort of specialty juice they had at that booth and now I can't remember what was in it (other than no alcohol ) - and Mom went to La Cantina to get a Diet Coke. Then we took a seat in that area out near the water.

Here's my Rosita Margarita. It was very yummy but - holy cow - strong! They didn't skimp on the tequila! Love the rose petal garnish.



Seth enjoying his apple juice and some shade.



Playing with Granny....



Hmmmm...what's across the water over there ("ova daye"???)?



Looking at the ducks with Granny.....



After our break we headed into the Mexico Pavilion.....



....and rode the Gran Fiesta Tour....



If you read my TR from 2011, you will remember we had a smelly surprise when we got off this ride....a yucky blowout diaper! Luckily, that didn't happen on this day. But Seth did love the ride just as much as he did on that trip!





Mom wanted to look at the crystal store in the pavilion, so Seth and I walked around a little. I loved this shirt....



He loved all the fountains and would always stop to look....

Heading on around World Showcase.....



We stopped in China to get my favorite adult beverage at EPCOT, the Peach Snap.....so good!



Actually, I think Mom kept walking while I stopped to get this. I caught up with her in Germany.







Can you guys tell there's a smudge near the bottom center of my lens? I didn't notice it until later.

My second-favorite pavilion, Italy. So pretty!







We decided to stop in Morocco for another break. This is my favorite pavilion so I was happy to take a break there!



I wasn't really hungry but I knew Seth probably was, so I headed into Tangeriene Cafe to get him a kids meal. I also got some pistachio baklava (one of my favorite EPCOT snacks) for myself.





I fully intended on sampling more from the F&G kiosks that day, but I just wasn't hungry. If it's hot out, I don't eat as much. Probably a good thing both for my wallet and my waistline!

By the way, those chicken tenders were GOOD. Probably the best chicken tenders we had in a kids meal during the trip. And of course the pistachio baklava was super yummy as always.

Seth would go run and play on the fountain, then come back and eat a chicken tender, and repeat....







I took this video while we were sitting there. I have no idea what he's saying but his gesturing is funny!



It was time for us to go meet Terrie and Joshua to ride Soarin', so I called Terrie and they were already there. I told them to go ahead and ride and we would be there in 30 minutes. I wanted to let Seth finish eating (he's not a great eater so once he starts, I don't want to interrupt him!). After he was done we headed to Japan, looked around a little and then hitched a boat across the water and back to the UK....



Back in Future World and we are heading for Soarin'!



Next up....will Mom Soar...or won't she????

How fun! You'll have to post a pic if she does decorate it!

ETA: All caught up - I love seeing how interested Seth is in all the details. So fun to see things through little eyes!

Disney water fountains are fascinating to little ones - and they're pretty cool to big people, too. Brooklynn was always drawn to them when she was that age.

I can definitely relate on the eating factor like Seth. My little girl who will be 3 next week is the same way. Some days are good and some days are bad. She likes things one minute and the next not so much. Right now, we are going through the stage of sandwiches are yucky and if I eat one, I'm not allowed to kiss her.

Seth is such a cutie! I'm glad he was able to spend time with his Granny and you were able to spend time with your mom. It sounds like you were having a very nice day (minus the blisters )

My youngest loved the water fountains when she was young too. Disney got lots of coins back then.

I hope your Mom tried Soarin'.

I feel your pain. I wore a brand new pair of Mary Jane Crocs also on our last trip and got blisters. They were on the bottom of my foot between my big toe and the one next to it. I couldn't figure it out. Of course it did rain every day.

I like the flip flops that you picked up that day.

The video of Seth is too cute! I love how he's bobbing his little head and gesturing. Too cute!

Joining in. I had a pair of crocs rub me to blisters in Disney as well when they don't at home. I figured it was the heat making my feet swell a little and found that wearing the little footsies socks in them stopped it.... not the coolest combo in the world but it worked

I hope you caught the blister in time.
I saw that lady with the flower golf cart. She was a hoot.
Wow she is bringing sexy back. LOL. What an outfit.
Cute flip flops.
How did I miss a Rosita margarita. :O(
Never had a peach snap. Looks good.
The last pic is pretty.
Great updates and pics.

Thanks so much for reading! Yes, he's growing like mad. Getting so big! I don't know what his fascination was with Daisy!

I will. My stepdad probably won't allow flowers. Seeing WDW through his eyes is better than any trip I took before he was born....no doubt!

Yes, yes, yes...do it Mom!
I think Seth stopped at every fountain he noticed to check it out. You will have to see if Mom goes through with it....she's not a thrill rider (not that Soarin' is a thrill ride, but to her it is! )!

What I don't understand is how he can eat so little and be so big! He's 95th percentile in height and 80th percentile in weight. It's baffling! But honestly, the way I look at it is I will put a variety of foods in front of him but I'm not gonna force him to eat it. I don't want eating to be traumatic. If that happens, he won't eat anything. Eventually one day he will pick up things outside his comfort zone and try them. And at 2 he just doesn't understand reasoning and consequences, etc. (Don't get me wrong, he is punished when he disobeys....but not with eating.) We will start being more strict about his eating in a few years.

Luckily Seth didn't ask for change but he did notice it when we were in line for IaSW! You shall have to wait and see!!!

I do think it has something to do with moisture and Crocs. Never had that happen before so it was very odd!

Thanks for reading! I had another pair of brown crocs I wore later in the week and they were fine. It was really strange!
