    Loving Jessi's family photo at Kona!


    We didn't have a great experience at Kona last time, but maybe we will try it again.

    Hurrah! I'm so excited! I have to work a full day tomorrow, but will be leaving work at 4pm to head to Midway to have dinner and then jump on a plane. We'll be arriving too late to do anything but sleep, but we'll have an entire day on Thursday.

    I'm so bummed right now, it's nap time at the hotel and I went to send in my lunch update from Cosmic Rays... The picture isn't on my phone. I know I took one, but it seems to have disappeared somehow! DH and I both ordered chicken nuggets. He got the carrot cake dessert, I got the mango sorbet. The chicken nuggets were standard. The mango sorbet tasted a little weird, but I still ate it because it was so hot and muggy outside and it was cooling me off! DD also enjoyed the sorbet sort of, she would make a funny face (I think from the coldness), then say yum and want more. Lol. Anyway, she's having a fantastic first birthday and we're headed back to MK as soon as she wakes up so we can attend out first MVMCP. Just not sure where we'll eat dinner...

    I also wanted to report that I wanted to get lunch at BOG. People were lined up before 10 to have lunch there! We walked by again around 11 after experiencing Under the Sea, and the line was so long, there was no way we were going to wait.
