A Weekend at Disney - Trip Report part 3

We had a great time in Epcot and now we were ready for a break and lunch!!! We walked back to our resort and headed upstairs to change into our bathing suits. Now we had some food in our fridge saved from the night before so we ate first then changed.  Now before leaving, our toilet overflowed - ugh!! I ran out of the bathroom to call maintenance.....thankfully maintenance was there in 5 minutes.  The man fixed the toilet in less than 10 minutes and told me that housekeeping would be up shortly to clean up the bathroom and that we didn't have to wait in the room....yay!! Time to hit the pool.  On our way out, we ran into my sister-in-law and niece who were on their way back.  So we went back into the room for them to change and finally we went out to the pool.
The pool was great, now the problem was deciding where to go swimming in this huge pool.  Storm-along Bay was really awesome!  We finally found our spot and jumped in!  The water was warm and the bottom was sand....amazing!!!  The girls definitely had a blast!!!





















Now, by 7pm we had to get out of the pool and get dressed to go back to Epcot for the Dessert Party I had to attend with the travel agency.  Besides the Dessert Party we also had private seating for Wishes....I could'nt miss this!  So off we went, but we stopped in France for a chocolate crepe & icecream.  We also stopped in Morocco to check out the stores and take some pictures.  





















Then we headed to Canada for our dessert party.  Once we arrived, baby girl had some more icecream, and I had coffee and some cookies!  Then a quick story about the creation of Wishes by Scott Wolf and then fireworks time!!  As always, it was amazing - I love all the Disney fireworks shows, and the private seating was an extra special treat.  














When it was all over, we hung out there for a bit and then made our way back to International Gateway.  I took a few more pictures along the way.


















We are back at the resort and we are exhausted!!!  Time for a good night's sleep.....this is our last night here!  Tomorrow morning we are packing up and taking one last stroll before heading out to the airport.

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
