    Well hello again everyone! :)

    Looks as though I took too long to get moving on my TR so they finished it and moved it to the completed section! So here we are with part two!

    I am sorry for the long hiatus. There was some employment drama and some family drama and some moving around and things got a little hectic. And as you know, I took too many photos that my computer wont let me load the photos directly from my camera! But things have calmed down somewhat, enough that I had time to spend a couple of hours at Walmart today making a photodisc!

    For those of you who might be stopping by who didn't happen to see any of part one, you can go ahead and click on the link in my signature! In anycase, I'm Stacy - the brunette, and the redhead is my DBFF Lauren!

    So! I left off at The Candlelight Processional with Neil Patrick Harris on December 2, 2008! He was awesome, but it was getting super super Canadian-type cold so we didn't spend much time hanging around Epcot afterwards. So we walked back through World Showcase toward the Canada-side. We made a stop in England so I could find something very special to me (and many others I know!):

    and to take some cliched photos of course!:

    and DBFF who was thrilled to be in that phone booth!

    And I snapped some quick photos of the Christmas decorations before we headed out for the night:santa::

    I'm here...like I could stay away.

    I never noticed the Mary Poppins blocks. Gonna have to add it to my next time list (which by the way is getting quite long and I'm not sure gnomefest is going to cut it. What is a girl to do? :rolleyes1)

    Thanks for coming back you guys! :)

    It was definately like a Canadian late-fall cold! It was weird to be doing Christmas-y pictures in May!

    Oh Katie Bless your heart! I had never noticed the Mary blocks either! I saw them on someone else's TR and made it my mission to find them! I too have a list of things that have to get done during Gnomefest...half of it is from last year's trip too! Don't worry, we'll work on our lists together! :)

    Happy Sunday morning everyone! I thought I'd try to get in a quick update before I head off to work for the day. So, in the words of Peter Pan, "Here we goooooo!"

    It was a beautiful sunny day when we woke up the next morning which was a nice relief from the chill of the night before...but it was still a little chilly so pulled on some sweatshirts and headed out to the Magic Kingdom! But not before I could snap some more POFQ photos!

    As soon as we got there, we headed through security, through the turnstiles, and through the tourists heading towards the rides...to get to the Main Street Bakery!:woohoo: Oh I adore this place! I could live off of those croissant breakfast sandwiches forever!! (but I do take the ham off and give it to DBFF Lauren) However, there is of course usually a line here too so I killed time by taking photos! Lauren was really impressed!;)

    I've never noticed the ice cream parlour like this! They were busy making the waffle cones!

    Then we finally got up to place our orders!

    As we got up to the cashier, he declared my meal to be a "breakfast of champions!! That's an adult's Happy Meal!" He was so cheerful and nice....and he was right! Look at what a healthy breakfast I had!:

    [​IMG]

    But it was delicious! :cloud9: A great start to the day!

    What I wouldn't give to have that breakfast every morning! :cloud9: Much better than my bagel or cereal!

    It did make me quite happy! The sugar kick was needed that morning too! The cold had worn us out the night before and we were hitting the half-over slump!

    OK, have I said this before? I could never stay at POFQ because of these jesters and those creepy alligators they have around. What is it about them? I don't have any clown phobias or anything :confused3 I also can't stand seeing pictures of the pool at the boardwalk, who wants to slide though a clown's mouth? CREEPY I tell you!!

    Love your breakfast! I'll take your ham during gnomefest

    See, I used to be terrified of clowns as a kid! But the POFQ stuff doesn't bother me....however in regards to the clown slide at the boardwalk, I did once say to Lauren that it looked like the clown was throwing up children!:rotfl: And I would be glad to give you my ham!:goodvibes

    Yay you're here! Thanks for coming back! :hug:

    Hi everyone!

    So! After we finished our "adult Happy Meals", we headed over to Tomorrowland! We decided to make Space Mountain our first ride of the day!

    After we came back to earth Lauren declared her breakfast was a little shaken up and she could use something a little more tame. So we took a slow walk over to visit our friend Buzz Lightyear and help him save the universe from Emporer Zurg!

    Once again, Lauren beat the snot outta my score....

    We decided it would probably be best to avoid Fantasyland at that point until the stroller brigade cleared out a bit, so we headed back through the Hub. The sky was an amazing blue colour so I had to stop and take some (more) photos of the castle!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Surprisingly there was no line for the photopass guy so Lauren and I got our photo done!

    [​IMG]
    We found out there was a reason why no one was getting their photo done at that time...we were looking straight into the sun! Please ignore our snotty-looking expressions in the picture! We were being blinded!:rotfl:

    I had to snap a photo of the gardens near Crystle Palace, they were just so gorgeous!

    [​IMG]

    See you next time in Adventureland!

    Wow. You got some amazing pictures! The sky was an incredible blue. Almost perfectly matched the blue in the castle! I don't think you gals look snotty in your photo at all. I see you're wearing sweatshirts so I guess the Canadian cool was continuing? :rolleyes:

    That is my absolute favorite color, a perfect shade of blue. Love the castle pics with the clear sky as a background. B E A U T I F U L !!!!

    Thanks C! The sky was so incredible! I think maybe the chill was a factor in it's colour. It was still pretty chilly that morning but you'll see in photos later in the day it warmed up a bit! Even the chill couldn't ruin such a gorgeous day!

    Thanks P! Lauren doesn't take the jerky ride motions so well sometimes and she gets queasy or headache-y, so if we've just eaten she claims her tummy is "shaken up". Lauren pointed out that we look as though we're judging the photographer's outfit and don't like it in the photo!

    Thanks Lana! It's not so often you see such a clear blue sky is it? It was stunning! I felt extra lucky to be there! :)
