Continuing our February/March Walt Disney World trip...I know the updates on this is a bit disjointed and random, but you can find all the updates on this trip so far HERE
We left off wrapping up our first full day with Henry flirting with the It's a Small World Cast Member and scoring us a back-to-back ride on the Happiest Cruise that Ever Sailed.
We all slept hard that night, it had been a long, full day!

We didn't set an alarm. As usual for this family. We all didn't even wake up until 8:00 am! It was bliss!
We took it slow that morning, watching some Playhouse Disney
Playing on the computer while enjoying a wonderful, wonderful breakfast
Playing with the monorail
And really, just enjoying our morning in the room.
We eventually left the room right around 10:00 am
We headed down to the Boardwalk and toward the International Gateway (the "backdoor" entrance to Epcot).
And within minutes we were here
Sigh. So pretty.
The World Showcase was still not open, but they do have the Kim Possible stations open, so we grabbed a FastPass for that.
This was something I had been meaning to do for several trips, I was determined this time!
We slowly made our way to Future World
A few of the Flower & Garden Festival displays, even though it wasn't quite officially started yet!
Suddenly some two-wheeled guests were flying past us
Henry was VERY excited to see the Segways. Joe and I took this tour during our Disneymoon and had a pin with a Segway on it from the tour. Just before we had left on our trip Henry had asked about them, and he instantly recognized them here in the World Showcase!
I cannot explain how excited I was to see those flower beds. They are BREATHTAKING! And they smell soooooo good.
Okay, who wants to be in Epcot RIGHT NOW?!?! These pictures are making me 'homesick'!
We decided to go get Test Track FastPasses, but they had some sidewalks blocked off in preparation of Pixie Hollow area for the Flower & Garden Festival, so we cut through Mouse Gear instead-which was a-OK with me, I wanted to shop here anyway!
Of course, when you walk into a gift shop with a child, it isn't always easy to just peel them outta there. Joe and Henry shopped for a bit, while I ran for FastPasses
Back to shoppin'
1 of each please. LOVE the 40th Anniversary stuff!
Henry reallyyyyy wanted a couple cars. We said "Only one.", but then he reminded us he had his own money! And he did! We give him a few coins each time he does things that we are working on-such as cleaning up after himself, obeying RIGHT away, putting his dishes in the sink, etc. plus, birthday money. Soooo....
The one we bought him
The one he bought
Could he be any happier?!?!
