Downtown Disney

Today is our last day so we let the kids slept in a little. Reed, Chloe and I went to the Resort Bakery to get breakfast. I needed to try the chocolate croissants! They did not disappoint.IMG_3489

We took some breakfast back to the room for Chance and Christian and then packed up our stuff. All of our balloons still looked brand new so as we checked out of our resort we found families with kids that looked like they were checking in. After we left our bags with the Resort, we boarded a bus to Downtown Disney.downtown-disney-00-fullIMG_3494

The bus let us out right by the Christmas store. I love Disney’s Days of Christmas store they tell you Merry Christmas all year! We enjoyed The Art of Disney, Once Upon A Toy, and World of Disney Store. After shopping we were hungry and the lady that sat next to us on the plane told us her favorite place to eat in Orlando is Fulton’s Crab House Riverboat. We understand why it is her favorite. It is now our favorite. If you like seafood, you must eat here.

Christian enjoyed the chilled seafood platter at Fulton's

After we ate we went bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. We practically had the whole upstairs to ourselves. After bowling we wanted to ride the ferry boat back to our Resort but it was not running due to wind. So, we took a bus back to our resort where shortly after we were picked up by the Magical Express, which took us to the Airport. Spirit was of course unorganized and slow getting checked in but we got a good deal. Not really sure that we will fly Spirit again. We arrived back in DFW safely on on-time.

When we first got to Hollywood we went straight to sign up for Jedi training, but we were too late. The line was very short on the Star Tours ride and we had that as a fast pass so we rode it and changed our fast pass. The boys were able to ride Rock’n’Roller coaster 4 times because of Chance and I both having it as a fast pass and doing the ride swap because Chloe wasn’t tall enough. We rode Tower of Terror twice. The first time the line was only a 10 minute wait and the second time with a fast pass.

Mother’s Day

Night before Mother’s Day Chance took me to get my favorite ice cream treat at our new Dairy Queen!


At church we started our Change for Real Choices and our 7th graders were amazing.  They labeled bottles and passed them out to people after both services.

I am so thankful for these 3 kids that God has blessed me to be their Mother.


After church Reed had a scrimmage.  Then after the scrimmage Chance and 2 of the other coaches took us to El Paseo!


It was a wonderful Mother’s Day!
