Our day at Epcot was so fantastic! It's a super-enormous playground for people who love learning and imagining - just like my family! So we felt right at home.
A couple of notes before we begin:
1) I'm not going to write a lot. I am tired. The pictures probably speak for themselves anyway.
2) If I ever decide to become a "photographer," I will probably regret putting unedited snapshots on my blog. But (see item #1).
My favorite people:
Here's Andrew posing with a crash test dummy. He was wearing his Buster (the Mythbusters crash test dummy) shirt. It was a beautiful moment of destiny.
We all really enjoyed the World Showcase area of the park. There was so much to see - fun rides and Disney-tastic sets and replicas like only Disney can do. Plus? Oh yes. Amazing food.
In France, of course, something sweet from the patisserie for my future French pastry chef. There was even a girl named Emma - from France, of course - working in the patisserie! Le sigh.
I seem to have taken lots of pictures of colorful lights in random places.
Kids doing even more stuff:
Fireworks and lasers at the close of the day:
One last glimpse of the famous Epcot ball as we left:
Lastly, just for my aunt, here is a tomato tree with Andrew's head blocking the view a little bit.
It is nowhere near the size of the one I saw last time, which they specifically mentioned on the tour as being the record-breaking tomato tree. Still, it's pretty impressive!
I'm sure you can tell that we had loads of fun. It was definitely hot out - the heat index was somewhere around 104! But we really enjoyed just being together and roaming through the park at our own pace. We could probably spend three days straight in the park and not do everything we wanted to do. Here's hoping for a timely return.
