Our Surprise Trip

Last Friday morning, the kiddos woke up to a big surprise! We were headed to Disney after school!  (I will have to upload the video of how we told them later--it's on Zeb's phone.)  Zeb had a medicine program director's conference, so we figured it was a good time to go!  We drove.  It wasn't bad AT ALL! And we did it there and back, including one night's hotel, for less than one airplane ticket!  We had reservations on Saturday at the Rainforest Cafe at 12:00.  We pulled onto Disney property about 5 minutes before 12! Whew!  

This quick pic was taken on the tram.

After naps

we headed to Downtown Disney for the evening.  We spent a lot of time in the lego store.

and then we ate dinner at T-Rex.  We purposefully didn't make reservations for dinner because we just didn't know how the kids would be doing.  We didn't have to wait long at all for T-Rex (since we eat so early).  I had a delicious chicken and veggie dish, but I wouldn't recommend doing T-Rex and The Rainforest Cafe in one day.  They are essentially the same thing!  The kids had a blast though!

Love Sam's big eyes when he was listening to the dinos roar!


Of course we had to hit Ghirardelli's for some ice cream!

That was it for our first half-day!  We headed to bed early so we could be ready for the Magic Kingdom!
