We are taking a little getaway up in Orlando right now. We wanted to get a little fix of the happiest place on earth, which today was the wettest as well! We have needed rain for months here in Florida, as we have been in severe drought but it has been raining for three days now and there is no end in sight. When I say rain, I don't mean your garden variety spring showers either...these showers are what Floridians call Palmetto Pounders...the kind of rain where your finger nails dig into your palms, as your husband is driving down the highway kind of rain.
Anyway, torrential rain was not enough to keep us from our missions of the day today, which were to see my friends Tamara and Penny with Tamara's sweet girls, Moose and Goose and to meet Katie's current fav Princess, Mulan. Both missions were completed successfully!
On our way to the park we stopped at Wal Mart to pick up clothing for just such a wet and chilly day since we had not planned for this rain event at all. The clothing the DD is donning is not particularly attractive but between that and their rain gear it kept them relatively cozy.
We met, made our way through a few areas of Epcot, sat, talked and met Mulan who has become personal friends with Moose, Goose and their entourage since they are annual pass holders and frequent Disney World more than I am in the grocery store (snort)
As we were making our way through the puddles and the kiddos were jumping in them, Tamara and I discussed that these are the times that make the best memories. It certainly was a day that I will never forget.
