Mother's Day at EPCOT

Wow! Mother's Day was 5 days ago and I am just now getting a chance to post something about it. When did time start going by so fast? It seems like months go by as fast as weeks, weeks go by as fast as days, and days just don't have enough hours in them. I keep hoping that we will get to slow things down a little and just relax, but with 2 seven-year-olds and 1 ten (almost eleven) year old, I don't think that is going to happen.

Anyway, last Sunday we packed everyone up and spent the day at EPCOT. I love going to EPCOT for Mother's Day because it is right in the middle of EPCOT's annual Flower and Garden Festival. This year was just as nice as always. We had perfect weather and the flowers were in full bloom.

Here are a few pictures from our day...

Caitlyn and Caley posed for a picture inside the front entrance of the park. I love the flowers and trees that they put in this planter. They look like the ones that are found growing all over Minnesota in the summer. It makes me want to go home.

Caley and Caitlyn walked through the "Fairy Garden" to find rubbings for Tinkerbell and her friends. Inside the garden they had topiary's of all of the fairies.

Caley stopped working for a minute to show her rubbing/coloring page and pose with one of the fairies.

This is one of the hundreds of butterflies inside the butterfly exhibit. I was checking out the plants inside the butterfly garden. I am trying to turn a corner of our backyard into a butterfly garden. I got some good plant ideas from EPCOT's garden.

CJ "willingly" stopped for a minute to have his picture taken in front of this garden that is planted to look like dolphins swimming in the ocean. Disney comes up with so many cool ideas.

Three crazy ostriches and three crazy kids. At this point the kids were thinking about their empty stomachs and asking to get some dinner. Ahhhh....I am so glad they appreciate the flowers!
