Anniversary Weekend {etc}…

We had a wonderful anniversary weekend. It totally revolved around relaxing and eating and doing whatever the heck we wanted. Including sleeping until 10:30. I don’t think I’ve done that since I was a teenager!

We have vowed everyone to secrecy with our trip location, because the kids would have a fit! Dan’s parents live in central Florida, so we dropped them off with Grandma and Grandpa and headed to stay at the House of Mouse.

We went and did things like staying at a bit of a nicer hotel {although the kids would have LOVED it there!} We usually stay at Pop Century, which is great because we’re usually park hopping.

And we went to Epcot and went to all of the countries and even all of the shops that I’m always too nervous to take the kids in!

We ate a yummy lunch in Mexico. They just redid this restaurant and it was very good. We were able to sit right on the water and it was so nice.

We walked around and rode Soarin’ {I had never riden this one because Luke can’t ride it yet, but it was fun!} and watched Captain EO, which was like being teleported back into the 80s- it was great. Cheesy, but great. J

We took the day at such a nice, easy pace! They gave us Anniversary buttons, so everyone told us Happy Anniversary. Ha! J

We ate dinner at the Rose & Crown in England and it was so good. I had Shepherd’s Pie and could have literally liked the bowl. But I refrained.

They sang All You Need is Love to us since it was our anniversary. It was cute.

Saturday was my glorious sleeping until 10:30 morning, so we got ready and went to eat lunch and shop Downtown Disney.

I’ve warned that this trip was a lot about food! After we shopped, we headed back to our hotel to watch the Florida/Tennessee game. After the game, we got ready for dinner and headed over to the Yacht Club to look around. Super nice hotel.

We ate dinner at the Captain’s Grille, which was awesome. It’s definitely made it up toward the top of our list of restaurants at Disney. We went down to the pool area after dinner, which was nice. The kids would have LOVED it there. There were all sorts of slides and fun things there.

We packed up the next morning and headed out to pick up our kiddos~ who wanted no part of us or going home! They were having entirely too much fun with grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins. My sister in law took some pictures of my kids in their bounce house {thanks, Amanda!}. I think they had a grand time!

After our relaxing weekend, we made the 6 hour trek home. I really think it feels twice as long when you are going home! I thought we would never get back. And we entered right back into reality.

The relaxation and quiet sure was fun while it lasted!

I’m also linking this on {embrace the camera} this week- note there are 2 pictures of me and Dan in this post. This must be some sort of record. 🙂
