What a day!

One of my favorite pics from the day! This kid is so cute and full of personality, I couldn't believe it. And smart as a whip. All of them were, in fact. P, though, was more of an age with Taylor, and the two of them got along famously. While the big boys were off doing space mountain, P and T went to see the Laugh floor, ride the people mover, and otherwise try and get into trouble.
Finally, I was able to get the two older kids to smile for a picture. The only reason they deigned to smile, was because their beloved speedway and space mountains were in the background, and I asked them to take a pic with those rides in it. They couldn't have posed fast enough!
We ended the very long day with dinner a the Grand Floridian cafe. Here's a pic of the special dessert the chef made for the boys, as the have allergies and couldn't order off the menu. After dinner we returned to our hotel after 9 at night. The boys were zonked, and couldn't understand why T was still jumping around full of energy.

That, is one of the great mysteries of life. After we parted company, the only way I averted and all out tantrum from T who was upset and "missing her cousins" was with an outright bribe of going to the hotel arcade. She was instantly diverted, and T and her tired old mom spend another hour in there, fooling around.
So ended our big day. We left disney the next day, in pouring rain. Both of us were literally drenched trying to pack up my van in the pouring rain. I posted this last pic, as T basically got her face painted every day we were there. Here she is, sporting the "Flower Mask". I must say, those disney face painters are true artists. They use glitter and everything and the results, that don't show as well in pictures, are stunning.

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
