Lots of big smiles this trip, it was awesome

BCV is awesome, so close to Epcot, and SAB is such fun.

I left off with mom and I heading to DTD. We were heading to meet mousetravel and her DD. (I don't know if she likes to say her name on here so I'll just refer to her by her board name.) I was really looking forward to meeting them because hers were among the very first TRs I started reading on the boards, and that was before I started posting. We had been texting back and forth that morning. She and DD wanted to eat at Rainforest Café for lunch and the plan was if they could get right in we’d meet after for ice cream at Ghirardelli but if they had to wait mom and I would meet them in front of the restaurant. Just as the bus got to Westside I got a text that they were able to be seated right away. Perfect timing, we got off and walked towards the Marketplace shopping along the way.

There were walls everywhere, I have not been keeping up on what is being done at DTD











This flower arrangement was gorgeous



It was super hot and these poor kids were out singing. My heart felt for them.



We stopped in Basin for a bit and mom found some chapstick she fell in love with. We also saw some soap we thought would be good for gifts but figured we would be back. Of course we didn’t…







Next up was TrenD, one of our favorites. We spied a few things but resisted.



This used to be where the walk through to the sports store was. I was really out of the loop of what’s going on at DTD.



Empty handed we headed out. I showed mom Little Miss Matched and we went through Goofy’s Candy Co. She then wanted to look at the Rainforest Café’s shop but I didn’t want mousetravel to see us and think we were stalking them. Mom scoffed at my fears and still wanted to go.

She was amused by this frog. He was similar to Turtle Talk with Crush.



I thought this was too cute



We browsed the whole store and then headed over to Fun Finds. This guy was just too funky.



We saw a few other things that we didn’t pick up and should have. The ‘we’ll be back’ struck again.

A little while later we caught up with mousetravel and her DD. We got some delights at Ghirardelli and sat outside and chatted for a while. They had fabulous southern accents which I just soaked up. I have a bad habit of not even thinking that someone will have a different accent then I do since I hear them in my voice when I read their TRs…

I had a strawberry shake, I think she got a salted caramael sundae. It looked heavenly.



And mom had a warm chocolate chip cookie



I was a bit bossy and insisted that she share when we found out our new friends had not known there were even cookies on the menu. I think they might get one in the future now. Thanks again Alicia for that cookie knowledge!

We had a fabulous time chatting about trips and Disney. They were leaving that afternoon and still wanted to do some shopping. I think we would have been chatting long after we parted if they weren’t heading home. I hope one day our paths will cross again. Thanks again for meeting with us and sharing part of your vacation!



It was super hot that day so mom and I headed back to BCV after our marvelous meet. We wanted to swim in SAB.

This poor guy was falling asleep on the bus.






Evening plans included seeing Chubby Checker at the Flower Power Concert and dinner at Via Napoli.

I am always surprised by people's accents as well. I never know what people are going to sound like. Not at all shocked by yours and your moms' voice but that might be because we live in the same general area. I always have a hard time with the southern accent and the midwestern accent. I just never expect it.

I heard it was REALLY hot the weekend you arrived. My GF was down there picking up her daughter from college and warned me about the 95 degree weather. I was thrilled that it cooled down at the end of the week.

Fun pics. Those walls at DTD were annoying, but I think its going to look great when they are done!

Hey, there Getting caught up again. Love the new update!

Thought it was funny how people say you & your mom look alike (I think you do, too), because that's what everybody says about me & DD!

That was kinda strange about all the crazy construction "happenings" going on at DTD.

That frog at Rainforest Cafe is so funny! That was neat!

I think we got some really good pictures! We had a great time with you & your mom. Funny about you mentioning the accents!!
It would be fun to meet up again someday!

And that sleepy guy is pretty funny!
