Fun Day at DisneyWorld with Pictures

Sunday, February 24, 2013

Gwen and Natalie meet Ariel:

Gwen and Natalie meet Jasmine and Alladin:

Gwen and her mom (my daughter) ride the magic carpet:

I've got lots more pictures, including me being the Wardrobe in a "production" of Belle's story, while Gwen is Chip and Natalie is Phillipe, the horse. It was a blast!! Many of the pictures have to be edited - turned and cropped - to fit on SP.

I carried a water bottle around and found that helpful, except it leaked and got my husband wet once, Natalie wet once, and me wet several times. (It is my hand held running bottle and I didn't want to throw it away. It's hard to get the lid on right.) I ate a grilled salmon salad for lunch. Got too hungry for supper - we didn't eat until too late. Next time I'll carry more healthy snacks because the other adults were eating junk and weren't hungry earlier. We had some good and some not so good snacks for the kids.

I saw lots of people wearing 5K medals for the earlier race yesterday and everyone I talked to said it was a fun, fun race with lots of characters and good spirit. Today is the Princess Half Marathon. Lots of people yesterday wearing buttons declaring their intention to run it. I saw two women in pink shirts that said, "Forget the glass slippers, this Princess wears running shoes" and saw two similar looking people in shirts that said "Twins RUN in my family." I've got the bug! I'm going to run a Disney half marathon in 2014 for sure, probably the Princess in February 2014. For now, I am planning on running a half in November. I believe the first ever half in my home town of Lakeland will be November 9th. Then I may go run the Women's Half Marathon in St Pete again two weeks later, as ONEKIDSMOM is talking about coming again, and that would be just too cool to do that one again!!

Hope you are making great memories with your family, too!!

    Looks like a wonderful time. It is inspiring to see so many runners. I love the no glass slippers and give me running shoes comments. I love my workout shoes.

    The Princess HM sounds like such fun! And that t-shirt slogan: this princess wears running shoes... classic!

Whether you decide two HM's that close together is too much or not, hope to see your smiling face at some point next November. And someday when I grow up (retire) I want to be like you!
