Show & Tell

Today Peyton brought in her picture from Cinderella's Castle for Show & Tell. Mommy's job was to write "3 clues" about the picture so that her classmates could try to guess what she brought for Show & Tell. I just spoke with the other Room Mother who had the honor of watching Peyton present her photo to the class. She said as the clues were read, Peyton was very energized and intrigued that her teacher was "so into Cinderella". . .the 3 clues were:

1) This is my favorite Disney Princess

2) She lives in her very own Castle in the Magic Kingdom

3) I had lunch with her at her Royal Table last Wednesday while in Disney World

Right after the teacher read the final clue, Peyton, astonished at how similar her interests were, exclaimed "I DID TOO!"

bye bye M I C K E Y M O U S E

It was so hard to say goodbye to Mickey Mouse but Peyton had the right idea. Rather than sulk about a trip coming to an end, let's plan the next one. After discussion with Daddy, sounds like Peyton will be taking us along to the Polynesian within the next 13-15 months. . .

See these purses? They are the direct result of Daddy taking his girls on a shopping spree in the Contemporary Resort's gift shop!
Daddy sat with Peyton for one last Donald Duck video prior to catching our ride to the airport: Aboard Disney's Magical Express:

Magic Kingdom & Epcot

We maxed out on fun during our final full day at Disney World. While Daddy ran back to adjust our Fantasy Football lineups we waited for him at the Monorail station. . .



Our princess dinner was at Ackershus (Norway) in Epcot. Not only did we enjoy a delicious dinner, the girls got to pose with all their favorites:



. . .and a trio of desserts, too!

Hollywood Studios and Downtown Disney

We enjoyed Hollywood Studios today, including special encounters with Quincy (from "Little Einsteins") . . . . . . and Handy Manny:
We had a delicious lunch at Disney's Sci-Fi Drive-In theatre:

The tradition continues. . .we posed by the Cindy Williams hand prints:
Just as storm clouds arrived, the girls pretend to set sail. . .
Peyton is having a blast going down this "big kid slide" at our pool:

video Peyton inherited my DNA when it comes to posing for the camera. She is TRYING to look just like this Lego Lady:

Pooh & Friends:
Taylor prefers Lego doggies:Cinderella is just about EVERYWHERE . . .

Another fun day at Disney World

This morning was a Magic Kingdom outing for us. . .
To infinity and beyond. . .
Dumbo. . .
The Magic Kingdom train ride which included various views of the Contemporary. . .
The girls got to pose with Stitch. . .
We found some extra time today to go pose in the gym :-) If they had better operating hours (for some crazy reason they close at 9p.m.) I would have had time to actually workout in the gym. Maybe tomorrow. . .
Dinner was at Chef Mickey's and the girls ate well and enjoyed their table guests. . .
. . .a little after dinner dancing was enjoyed by all:

Since Taylor had a 3 hour nap before dinner, we decided to go to Epcot for some late night fun. It was lots of fun avoiding the sunshine and heat but we crashed around 11p.m. which made bedtime very smooth tonight :-) Kia thinks Peyton may sleep until after noon tomorrow!
