Last day--Jacksonville

On Sunday, we headed up to Jacksonville to see Nathan's Uncle Brad and Aunt Katherine and of course their dog Scout. We got to also spend some time with his grandmother Ellouise (Poe) at the nursing home. She loved seeing everyone and the boys loosened up with her once they learned that she loved to hear their jokes. They said she loves to tell knock knock jokes to everyone at the nursing home so now she has some new ones to share. Later that afternoon, we went to the beach for a while. It was a lot of fun for the boys and it was so good to see Brad, Katherine and Ellouise!

Disney Day #6--Downtown Disney and Epcot

On Saturday, we started out by going to Downtown Disney. The boys loved Goofy's Candy factory where they got to custom order their own pretzel sticks and marshmallows on a stick covered with chocolate, caramel and all kinds of candies. They also loved the Once Upon a Toy store and the Lego store. We headed back to Epcot for the rest of the afternoon/evening. They boys had a lot of fun in the Innoventions building where they got to star in their own video games. You can play the video games at the following links.





Disney Day #5--Swimming and Epcot

We started out Friday by taking a boat to our sister resort and checking out their pool then it was back to our resort to the water slide. Later that day we went to Epcot. There they rode Mission Space, Test Track and Soarin'. They also really enjoyed Turtle Talk with Crush where the dude with the short fur and the red shell (aka Jared) and also the Dad Dude (aka Nathan) became part of the show! For dinner that night, we went to Ohanas at the Polynesian Resort. The food was wonderful and we had a great view of the castle--especially when it was time for the fireworks. At the restaurant, the boys did the limbo, learned to hula dance and had a coconut broom race. It was a lot of fun!
