It is now Wednesday and our plan for today was to end up at Epcot for fireworks. So we spent the morning at the village to try to take it easy. First up, the horses at the village! Jaycee had a few pony rides when she was younger, but none recently. So it was exciting to see her so interested in the horse rides. She loved them! When Jaycee's turn was over, she got off the horse and signed "my turn, horse." She even tried to say horse for the first time ever. It sounded like "ss" but it was something. Needless to say, she got a few extra horse rides.
Then we decided to try the village putt-putt golf. The kids have never done this before so we knew this would end up being a little wild! And it was! The mini golf course was first class with neat surprises. Jaycee hit any ball she found whether it was hers or not. Elijah kept using his club backwards. Jaycee got tired of hitting her ball and ended up throwing it in the hole. I laughed and laughed at the kids but my husband and I aren't planning any putt-putt golf adventures any time soon.
It's was 10:30 in the morning by then, so of course it was ice cream time!! Why not? Rules don't apply at the village. With full bellies (again), we headed to Downtown Disney. After we finally figured out the parking due to the construction, Elijah hit the Lego store with dad. Jaycee and I went in search of a princess dress nearby. Success!
Epcot was next! We did a few rides before getting in line for all the princesses. Belle, Sleeping Beauty, Jasmine, and Snow White were all there. Elijah was bored, the poor kid! But, Jaycee was happy.
Later that day, we visited with Mickey, Goofy, and Minnie. I decided to get in a picture with Jaycee and Minnie. Jaycee cried and got so mad. She didn't want me in the picture. Here's that magical moment:
We loved several rides at Epcot. We successfully stayed around for the Illuminations fireworks show. Staying out late is not my idea of fun, but Jason wanted to see it. It was neat. I'm glad we stayed. I'm always thinking about the medicine we have to do when we get back, but I tried to not let the medicine and vest treatments dictate the schedule. It was a late night, but it was good.
More wish trip coming next time............
