Mother's Day Recap

Mother's Day. It was two days ago and I am just getting around to writing about it. I wish I had a magic wand that would let me make time stand still every once-in-a-while. But, of course that will never happen. The days and the activities just keep marching on. So, we make the most of them and have as much enjoyment as we can.
Mother's Day was somewhat low key for us. We didn't have any big plans. All of the family is back up north, so it was just the 5 of us.
After much discussion and a few tears, we decided on going to Downtown Disney.
We decided to have lunch/dinner at T-Rex, which none of us had been to yet. T-Rex was nice, a little bit scary for the girls. They do not like loud noises, so when the thundering and noises started, they got a little freaked-out, but not bad. The food was good, but way too expensive. It will probably be quite some time before we go back again. I am glad we did it once, but we won't be hurrying back.

After lunch the kids wanted to wander around the restaurant to see the different Dino's. This was a little woolly mammoth that was close to our table.

Next, we wandered into some of the shops. Here are the boys trying on the pirate stuff in the World of Disney. I guess they never grow up!

All three of the "little" kids tried on the Peter Pan hats. The "big" kid sat this one out. ;-0

After a little bit of browsing, we took the kids out to run and play in the fountains. It was a really hot day. They were happy to spend a little bit of time in the water. We have learned to bring swim suits with us to Downtown Disney, so they can enjoy the water. is cheap entertainment!
After running through the water, we went to browse a few more shops and to the real treat of the day! Ghirardelli, for some ICE CREAM! It was sooooo good and the perfect ending to Mother's Day.
