Quick Trip To Disney!

Stephanie, Tanek, Anita and I decided to make a quick trip to Disney for a little fun & R&R. We stopped on the way at the outlet mall, had lunch at the Rain Forest which was really neat, checked into our hotel the Buena Vista Palace and relaxed a little. Tanek liked seeing the animals and we were in the elephant room. When I ask him what does the elephant say he will always answer "Roll Tide". I try very hard to teach him right.

Tanek and Stephanie by the alligator. He also knows the alligator says "chomp chomp".

This was such a cool place to have lunch. We even enjoyed the thunderstorms they had every 30 minutes. It is after all the rain forest.

Winnie the Pooh, Tiger and Piglet like Downtown Disney too!

A very short swim in the pool. As you can see behind the thunder clouds were rolling in fast. All of a sudden we had such a wind that blew over all the lounge chairs and umbrellas and we made a mad dash for our room.

After the storm was over we went back to Downtown Disney to do a little shopping and let Tanek play at the lego store. He loves lego's and of course his mommy bought him a set of "Bob the Builder bulldozer". He played with them for a couple hours after we came back to our room.
We were also able to watch the fireworks from Epcot and the Magic Kingdom from our balcony.
That was really cool. NO crowds.
Here he is with his lego package.

It was great fun playing with the lego's and building things.

And finally bedtime came. He had been up since early Thurs. morn. We left our house about 7 a.m. and he finally was ready for bed about 10 p.m. He never once got crabby or tired the whole day. But when he finally laid down in bed he was out in just a few minutes.
He is asleep with all his friends from Disney.

The next morning he was ready to go again. The end of the first day and the beginning of the 2nd day. More pictures to come.

We have had a great time making special memories going to Disney. Thanks to Anita and Stephanie (with all they know about how to do Disney) I have learned to love it too. There are so many things to do that you don't ever get bored. And since we have season passes you don't feel like you have to try to see everything at one visit. We can come back the next month, or week or whenever we decide too. It has been lots of fun and one of Tanek's favorite things to do is ride the Disney bus. We were able to ride the bus, the monorail and the boat. He was happy and we never even went into the parks. We knew we did not want to do that in this heat. We had a very relaxing and fun time.
