Defining moments of the day

So today we spent 12 hours at Epcot.

Yes, twelve.

And I have the aching knees to prove it!

I'm exhausted and the keyboard is a bit blurry.  I sorta feel like I just returned from a trip to China.  Oh.  Wait.  If you count circling the entire world showcase...I did.

There's much to tell about our experience today.  And I will ~ later.  Just not tonight.

There are many, many wonderful pictures and memories to share, but below are the few defining moments of the day that simply had to be recorded before I sleep.

My girls meeting their very first princess.

My boys in front of their very favorite character.

(Yes, we took them back by after they woke up.  This nearly two hour siesta brought many smiles from strangers.  Oh, and no, we didn't loose Daniel's shoe, it was in the stroller basket.)

My babies in the area that represented their heritage.  They were so proud to be in China.

the movie in the pavilion was great and even featured daniel's province!
And things I'll remember hearing today?

Ky: as the lights were twinkling on buildings around the world showcase during the illuminations show, "It's a dream come true Mommy!"

Caleb: as we were walking out, "Thank you Mommy and Daddy for bringing us here!"

DQ: after meeting Aurora, "I do think she really was a real princess Mommy, don't you?"

Daniel: during EVERY ride we rode, (in his most excited voice) "Look, look!"

Looks like a wonderful time! But 12 hours?!!!? Try not to overdo it... :) You have to pace yourself.

What a day! Wish I was a little bug that could ride around on the handle of the stroller and watch everything and hear everything that is said. I am so delighted that you are there having a delightful time! Love you.

What amazing quotes and observations from your sweet ones. Lifetime magical memories for sure! My favorite, is of course, the picture in front of "China". What an amazing God to bring them full circle in Disney! :0)

That is so awesome! Love the quotes at the end. The photo of the boys sacked out in the stroller in front of the Cars dude (sorry, I don't know the name of the character, Noah's a Toy Story man)... such a priceless photo!

I just loved Aurora every single time I met her! Of course, all the Disney Princesses are lovely and sweet, but she was special.
