Disney Trip #3

Last Saturday through Monday, Maddie and I were in Disney World with my dad and stepmom who were visiting from Ft. Lauderdale.  We stayed in Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter Resort.  Which was nice but one of the smaller Disney Resorts that I have stayed in.

This is the opening to the pool.  Behind it (you can kind of see if you look close) is a huge water slide that looks like a dragon.  Saturday morning we checked into the hotel and then headed over to Magic Kingdom.  It was sprinkling most of the day but thank God it didn't get unbearable.  My stepmom has most of the pictures from Saturday when we were at Magic Kingdom.  I made reservations for that night to eat at a restaurant inside the park called Crystal Palace.  It's a really yummy buffet and they have Winnie the Pooh characters that come from table to table.  Madison was still not all that thrilled with the characters but she would let them get a little close to her but she would definately let them know when she had had enough!  Piglet came over to our table (again my stepmom has the pictures sorry!) and started playing with her a little bit and she tolerated it.  Then Piglet started blowing kisses at her and she blew kisses back.  I guess she wanted Piglet to leave after she blew the kisses but he stayed there.  So Madison started blowing MEAN kisses.  I can't really explain what she was doing in writing you had to be there but it was hilarious.  On Sunday the plan was to hang around the hotel and then go to Downtown Disney where there are restaurants and shops.  We went to the pool in the morning but we weren't there for long because it started raining.  It's so cute watching Maddie with other kids.  She likes to get in their faces though.  She'll wave and say hi and then try to poke them in the face.  When we were at the bus stop waiting for a shuttle to go to the park there were three little kids there.  I let Madison down and she ran from each kid to the other saying hi.  She did this for about 5 minutes and she started getting tired running forom one side of the bus stop to the other.  Everyone there was cracking up at her.  Anyways, on Sunday after the pool we went to Downtown Disney and ate at the T-Rex Cafe.  It's just like The Rainforest Cafe but with dinosaurs.

Maddie was very hungry when we got there but when she got some food in her she looked around at all the dinosars.  Every 15 minutes the lights would dim and the dinosaurs would come to life.  Maddie thought it was pretty funny and growled along with the dinosaurs.  But I think it was a little overstimulating for her because she was getting a little crazy and wasn't sure what to do with herself.

Afetr lunch we went into all the shops.  I bought a few bars of goats milk soap and one bar of calomine soap for Madison at a store called Basin.  Goats milk soap is supposed to be really good for skin with excema.  If that doesn't help Madison's skin I don't know what will because I've tried everything it has never fully cleared up.  Later on Maddie danced to the music that was playing there.  She was really getting into it!  She loves dancing.  When we got back to the hotel that night she crashed.
Monday we had intentions on getting up early and going back to the pool since we weren't there for long but none of us could get out of bed.  So we checked out and took the boat that took us down the canal behind our hotel to Downtown Disney to eat lunch.  We walked around a little more for about an hour.  We took her to the water area...

..She got caught in the middle of the water and wasn't to happy.

Needless to say at the end of our trip she was very tired.  Here she is on the boat on the way bakc to the hotel where our cars were...

Poor Baby!!

...But she wasn't too tired to have some fun as we were leaving the hotel.
