My daughter, DIL, and the grands drove 3 hours to go to Disney World yesterday (Saturday). We had a wonderful time...the weather was PERFECT, with a high of 66, and it was clear...not a cloud in the sky! How do you like this topiary we found of Mickey??? We decided NOT to take them to a park since they are so young, but to have an enjoyable, and slow paced day shopping at Downtown Disney, then riding the bus to the Wilderness Lodge to have lunch in the Whispering Canyon Cafe. Then we took a boat to the Contemporary Hotel and got a coffee and watched some of the older Mickey movies (some even in black and white) in a special little tucked away area in the lobby just for kids with couches and soft hassocks to sit and lay upon to watch the large screen. We then took a ride on the monorail and got back to the placed we had parked and allowed Donovan to go back into a LEGO shop to build 3 little Lego people and package them to purchase. It was his souvenir.
Well..... his Mom had gotten him pennies smashed down in a machine that imprints different Disney images onto them (pressed pennies), so... Grandma Julie HAD TO BUY him the special book to store them in, so he would be able to take it back with him on future trips to further his collection! Of course she did!!! :)
