Today we started our day off at Downtown Disney and went to Disney Quest. Matt and Sarah have been looking forward to this trip for forever. Disney Quest is a huge indoor arcade. It has a ton of different virtual video games and activities for kids of all ages. My favorite was the Pirates of the Caribbean Virtual game. You had to wear 3D glasses
After Disney Quest we headed over to Epcot where we started exploring the World Showcases. We only made it through Mexico, Norway,
Norweigan Troll - 1st time Sarah would even go near the thing!
and China before we had to head over the United Kingdom for dinner. After each country I asked Matt and Sarah three questions each about what they had just seen/ heard. It was a pass/ fail quiz as I counted this as a day of school. Thankfully, they each passed as they listened to what was being spoken. We ate dinner at the Rose and Crown Pub - excellent food!
Daniel play hopscotch while waiting for dinner - shocked us all by already knowing how to play!
Daniel's picture of fireworks over the Magic Kingdom Castle! Pretty smart!
We ate there tonight as you have the opportunity to stand outside their property to get a great view of the fireworks display. Daniel has been in his glory as each night we have seen fireworks - he LOVES fireworks! Epcot's display is by far the best one in all of Disney. He loved them.God is truly blessing us with wonderful weather and incredible opportunities to enjoy our kids. I am loving this vacation. I am still planning on NOT returning to Philly. Each day that goes by it gets more difficult to think about going back to the stress and craziness back there. Each day it gets easier to convince Andy to leave it all behind and find a life that is less stressful. He is sleeping so much more here and we are actually smiling a lot more at our kids and saying yes instead of no all the time. We have met several people who work for Disney that have actually grown up where we are currently living - they say, too, that they never want to go back and love life in Florida. God is going to have to do a mighty work in my heart to get me back there. We'll see......
