The third and last day at Disney

The favorite part of this trip for Tanek was getting to meet one of his favorite characters. Handy Manny. He watches Handy Manny every day and loves him because he fixes and builds things. In Tanek's imagination he builds lots of things too. He has built all the Disney buses when he was a bus builder, and he has dug all the big holes around Keystone when he was a builder. I love the imagination of a 3 year old. And he is just as serious as he can be. He is a builder and he knows the names of all the large machinery like backhoes, track hoes, bulldozers. He knows the difference in them and what they do. SO, Handy Manny is one of his favorites because he can fix them if they break.

A big hug from Manny
Of course we always visit Radiator Springs because he still loves Lightning and Mator

Riding on the magic carpet is always fun

We watched the electric parade. I couldn't really capture the pictures on my camera, but this one turned out ok. It really is a cool parade.

A few shots from New Orleans...Riverside. We stayed here a few times back and they have such good food we came here for lunch and then took the boat to Downtown Disney. We always get the dinning plan and you get so much food we have trouble eating it all. We ususally have to get our snacks to take home because we can't eat all the food they give you and it is very reasonable. We love the big water wheel.

These shots below are from Pop Century where we stayed this time. We love it here because all the decor is from past decades. This time we got to stay in the "50"s" which was right down mine and Anita's ally. It brought back so many fun memories. Below is the beautiful Lady. She still lives on in the lives of our grand-children after all these years. She hasn't aged at all.

And her man "Tramp"

How long has it been since you even thought about a Transister Radio? That is what that square thing is on the side of the buidling that they are dancing too. And the 45 rpm records. Tanek thought they were tires.

Goofy with his surf board

How many of us had one of these to play with?

Then we go to the 70's. And the big wheel lives on today. I have one on my back porch that Tanek rides on.

And the mood ring? We used to wear them to see if we were happy or sad?

As always our traditional picture is to take a picture of Tanek on the way home. He rarly falls asleep in the daytime, but after 3 days at Disney he always falls asleep on the way home. This time since he wasn't back to himself from being sick he actually fell asleep every day.

He gets a good nap on the 2 hour drive back home. And as always a good time was had by all. Usually everyone but the driver (hopefully) gets a short nap on the way home. Another 3 days of "Magic" are over again....at least for another couple months.
