Day 3 - Mom's 60th birthday Dinner and Downtown Disney

We all met for dinner at the Olive Garden on our 3rd day in Orlando to celebrate my Mom's 60th birthday! We enjoyed a great meal, lots of laughter, and lots of noise coming from the children's side of the table ... and a yummy birthday cake! After dinner, we headed to Downtown Disney to shop! The children were armed with the money that Mamaw and Papaw gave them! We headed straight for the Lego store. Wow ... impressive! Jonathan bought a Mater lego set, and Martin bought a Star Wars lego set and then we moved on to the Disney Store. The Disney store is absolutely massive. My advice on this store is this: Do not enter the store unless you have a phone and the other people in your party have a phone. Do not let go of your children in this store ... you might never see them again! LOL I've never seen anything like it!
Rosalie knew what she wanted the moment she entered the store. She bought a very large stuffed Minnie Mouse with a pink dress. She was and still is thrilled with her purchase! Jonathan had some money left over and he bought a red pirate gun. Aaron bought a Club penguin stuffed toy. (and I forgot to mention that he actually bought a stuffed elephant at Animal Kingdom the day before ... he collects elephants)
Martin also bought a stuffed Mickey Mouse dressed like Obiwankenobi.
It was a fun night for the children ... celebrating Mamaw ... and spending their money! (and just in case you start thinking that your money can go a long way at Disney ... Mommy and Daddy did provide the extra funds the children needed when their fund wouldn't take them as far as they needed. )

Jonathan was proudly handing over his money to buy his lego set!

  1. i think its amazing what can be built with legos!

  2. What a fun day! I agree that the Lego and Disney stores are HUMONGOUS! Looks like all the kids picked out prizes perfect for them!
