Rhinos, Housekeeping and Katrina and the Waves…
Quite the headline, right? Oh yes. The events of the past few days have been eventful.
-J has thrown around his charm or ability to chat it up with a few Spanish speakers. Because of that talent, my kids have enjoyed free breadsticks, free pop and free churros. I might rent him out when we get back home.
-For not being a strict scheduled trip, we were racing the clock last night to meet Mickey and the princesses. Talk about stress. Now I know how it feels to meet the queen. Waiting and waiting and then boom, there they are and you really hope your deodorant is still working. Come on, you know what I am talking about.
-The moment when you are in line to meet princesses and you realize your boys are the only testosterone in the room. And the camera guy wearing the while polyester riding crops? They took his man badge away when he clocked in. Poor guy.
-So much amazing people watching. Best was the 18yr old girlfriend catching a ride on her 72 yr old boyfriend’s Hoverround scooter. Love AND efficiency.
-Just now my kids were singing ‘Walkin on Sunshine’ by Katrina and the Waves. I love them. Our hotel neighbors might have a different opinion.
-The safari at Animal Kingdom was great. However, I only came home with shots of animal fannies. To which my kids starting singing about rhino butts. 100% sure our hotel neighbors hate us.
-Our schedule has been nutty and pool time has been sparse. My fish, L, is not loving that. So I made the kids run in the sprinklers at 11pm last night. 110% sure the resort hates us.
-M ordered hot cocoa for dinner tonight. And the waiter brought it! And now I can’t feel my tongue. Freakin’ hot cocoa.
-We got pillow pets for the boys tonight. There was a lot of scheming to get them to be a surprise. When the boys found them, they were so excited! Nana asked who gave them the pillow pets. L responded ‘Housekeeping!’. Maids and Santa always steal our thunder.
-Fits of rage in between photo ops have been more frequent today. Always awesome. Really makes me rethink the child leash idea.
-As we are walking back to our room last night, the boys start spouting lines from Alvin and the Chipmunks. ‘Aawwwwk-ward!’ Hilarious…and then the 50th time, not so much.
-The beach is tomorrow. Pray for us.
