    A flower bed....:lmao:

    Next we move along and pass by a few other countries (Italy, Germany, etc) but I don't have any pics. We stop and browse in what I'm assuming may end up becoming Africa but for now it just says "outpost".

    Next we cross the bridge and are now in China. FJ decides to give us a quick tour around China. The detail here is also amazing.

    Hi Cherie! You're taking awesome FJ pics :rotfl2: :lmao: How cool is the "flower bed" pic? DS must have had a blast going through all of the tunnels and stuff. I'm starting to dread how hot it will be when we go in Aug!

    Do they REALLY still make Monchichi's?!?! I remember the WHOLE song! Wanna hear it?

    Monchichi, Monchichi.. oh so soft and cuddley
    With her thumb in her mouth she's really sweet
    Love to tickle her little feet
    La..... la.. la
    La..... la.. la
    Happy, happy Monchichiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!

    That is SAD, I know!:(

    Hey Jordan, just out of curiosity, what IS your nationality?!:confused3

    Wonderful pictures, Blue. Didn't realize how very much they had on display for the FG Festival. Thanks for sharing!!:goodvibes

    Thanks.
    I loved the flower bed too. Funny!
    We did go back to Norway and Mexico on a different day. One of DS's favorites is the boat ride in Mexico.
    LOL, yes FJ looked sharp in the red. (Chinese shirt....not sure if there's another name)

    It was all very pretty and a whole lot of fun!

    It is funny isn't it??:rotfl:
    I think we made some of those when I was in elementary school. FUN!

    FJ was a blast to hang with.
    The little play area's were so cool. DS had a great time!
    Just don't be affraid to go get wet every once in a while. I think that was my mistake. We should have taken some pool time or gone to a water park.
    :lmao: :lmao: I love that you still know the song!! I had that tune stuck in my head but couldn't remember all the words. Too funny!
    I'm not Jordan, but I can tell you that he is Japanese-American. :thumbsup2

    It was too funny.:rotfl:
    I was really liking the idea of the pizza garden! I may not do it in the shape of a slice, but it would be interesting to grow everything myself. Ok, I should say TRY to grow everything myself. I was definitely not born with a "green thumb".

    After leaving World Showcase, we stopped at a bench to eat a Mickey Bar. That's when this little guy came around and started doing tricks for us.

    We head over toward the butterfly garden. Here are pictures from our walk over....

    Anyone who read my last TR and/or my PTR for this trip, can understand the irony between me and the sponsor here.....:rotfl2:

    Minnie Topiary...

    Butterfly topiary...
    [​IMG]

    The butterfly exhibit was pretty cool. You could check out the cocoon's of the up and coming butterflies and the butterflies that were almost out! There weren't as many flying around as I thought there would be but we were there the first week of May. I bet there were many more by the next week!

    After the exhibit, we take our time looking around at other topiaries, playgrounds, and exhibits.

    Solar powered hot water heater....

    DH brought DS to the restroom while I was looking at this. I was completely alone in this area. As I was reading, I saw something move out of the corner of my eye. I went to take a closer look and found this little guy.....
    [​IMG]
    (if you look at the picture before this one, you can see him watching me take that picture. look to the left. I didn't even see him until he moved after I took that picture.)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    He let me get pretty close to him. I took a couple of pics while he munched some grass. Then I switched to video and got a little before I moved and made a noise and he took off into the bushes. :rotfl: oops!

    [​IMG]


    We then head into Mouse Gears where I tried my best not to spend too much time because this is where we usually spend way too much money. :rotfl: Look at all those Jelly Belly's!!!!
    [​IMG]

    When we walked back outside it was almost dark. We decided to head out. DS was tired and getting cranky. Here are some pics on our way out....
    [​IMG]
    I love the twinkly pavement on the way out but can never get a decent picture of it.

    Hidden Mickey?? A survey marker...

    It's funny how fast they fall asleep after a day in WDW!!!

    Butterfly exhibit looks great. I think we must have missed that on our trip last year.

    I love all the topiary, so pretty:thumbsup2

    That darn claritin :faint:



    How funny that the bunny was watching you:rotfl:

    What a cute little thing he was:goodvibes



    Speaking of cute, that picture of DH and your son is so precious:goodvibes
