1900 Park Fare

We had dinner one night at 1900 Park Fare where Cinderella, the Prince, The Wicked Stepmother, and Wicked Stepsisters hang out.

When Milana met the Prince she was extremely interested in his gloves. She thought they were pretty neat. Not sure why, but it was cute the way she studied his gloves.

Mila liked Cinderella's gloves as well, but we managed to get her to stop looking at them long enough for a picture.

Ironically, the wicked stepmother really seemed to be Milana's favorite character. She thought it was funny the way she kept making that mean face. Each time we talked about her (the Wicked Stepmother) Milana would make that face and put her fist under her chin. She STILL does it when we talk about her.

Milana enjoyed meeting the stepsisters as well. Let's face it. Milana enjoys meeting anyone and everyone.

When Milana first met Drizzella (I can't spell folks) she walked over to her and lifted her arms up to for Drizzella to pick her up. I of course am having this internal struggle in my head as we have been trying to teach Milana that she doesn't hug or kiss anyone other than family, she doesn't need to be picked up by anyone - again other than family. So I was getting a bit anxious.

Fortunately, Drizzella is a WICKED Stepsister so it all worked out. Drizzella looked at Milana and said "You want me to pick you up?" "I don't pick anyone or anything up except for maybe my cat." "If you lift me up, then I will lift you up." So it all worked out.

Chris found himself yet another girlfriend. Looks like this may be why he likes Disney so much :)

While we were finishing up eating the Step Mother came back to see Milana. She came back and told us she was so happy that Milana was still here and that they had all been talking about her in the back about how cute she was. I thought that was so cool that she made that big of an impression on them. It made my day!

Disney Part 1

We decided on a last minute trip to Disney. It began with about a 9 hour drive to Orlando. During said 9 hour drive a certain little one repeated this the entire way - "Mommy! Disney! Going Disney Mommy?" Occassionally she would throw in "Daddy - Disney - Daddy, going Disney!" It was a LONG ride!

Our first night there we had dinner at Boma. It was really good. I am not generally one to experiment with unknown foods, but I really enjoyed it. I was disappointed that I didn't get to try everything. (Well minus the meats).

Here we are waiting for our table at Boma. (Me, Milana, Riley)
 This picture is a bit on the blurry side, but here I am with Milana and Peyton.
 Peyton, Milana, Chris, & Riley on the Generation Gap Bridge right by our hotel. The girls LOVED this bridge as we saw tons of turtles swimming in the water. When we would look down they would swim right over to us looking for food.
 This is also at our hotel. It is the play area. I wish I took more pictures of our hotel - both inside and out. It was VERY cool.
 Here is Chris with his new girlfriend. We had breakfast at Chef Mickey's on Sunday morning. On Tuesday night we got in line to meet Mickey somewhere in the Magic Kingdom. When we got in to see Micky we were surprised that Minne was there too. As we were finishing up our pictures Minnie was trying to tell Chris and I something. We of course had no clue because I guess we just aren't that good at charades. Anyway...Minnie asks one of the Disney workers for paper and pen. On it she writes - I remember them from Chef Mickey's. At Chef Mickey's she had walked by Chris and elbowed him in the head. So I guess that is why she remembered us. We thought it was pretty neat!
 After coming out of Muppet Vision 3D we ran into these cool characters. Phineas was a riot - very silly!
We also figured out what we were going to do today!
 Peyton, Pluto, and Riley at Chef Mickey's.
 Mila, Daddy, Ducky Mo Mo, Riley, and Peyton
 More Chef Mickey's pics. Mila having a blast twirling her napkin in the air and singing. Ooh! Another neat bit of info. The last time we were at Chef Mickey's was about 4 years ago. The waiter we had this time was the same waiter we had 4 years ago. We remembered him as he is originally from a city close to where Chris and I are from.
More pictures and random bits of info to come.
