    Chapter 7 continued…

    Aurora tried to get him to interact with her but he held off until the very end.

    Then Ariel came over and he was all about her.

    When it was time for the parade, Ariel came and got him to help lead it. Then of course I was the creepy looking adult following behind. The guys had a good laugh about it. But, I had to follow because he was so cranky and tired, I didn’t know what he might do. I should have known he would be the perfect angel since he was with Princess Ariel.

    In between all of the princesses, we ordered and I have absolutely no recollection of who got what. I think we ordered: Tradisjonell Kjøttkake - Norwegian Meatballs served with Mashed Potatoes, Seasonal Vegetables, and Lingonberry Sauce and Svinestek med Frukt - Seared Pork Tenderloin - with Apricot Glaze, Multigrain Pilaf, Sautéed Mushrooms, and an Apple-Fennel Slaw. I’m pretty sure D got the mac-n-cheese. We didn’t order anything specifically for G because I knew he’d eat a little of this and a little of that if we were lucky. Well, on one of my visits to the buffet, the guys ordered him a kid’s pizza because he said that was what he wanted. He finally did pick at it but he would only eat standing up.


    As we were finishing up, we realized the fireworks were about to start. I knew our safest bet was to stay inside until they were over. We explained to our waiter and he told us there was absolutely no rush and for us to just enjoy ourselves. We ordered dessert and they also brought out a cupcake with a candle for G and a birthday card signed by all of the princesses. We ate until we couldn’t eat anymore and still was able to take some desserts to go. When the fireworks started, we could hear them but they weren’t loud. G did ask what the noise was and we told him. You could tell he was a little anxious because he kept talking about them. We finally finished up and headed out once the fireworks were over. The guys had to go to the bathroom so they boys and I hung out by the front and we got to see some of the princesses again. This helped distract G momentarily because he kept asking if the fireworks were all done. Even getting in the stroller he kept wanting reassurance.


    Then we started the long trek over to the International Gateway. We were checking into a new resort that was within walking distance. R walked with us even though he needed to go to the parking lot.


    We said our goodbyes with a promise to see him one more time the next day before we boarded the Tragical Express.


    D had no idea where we were going until we were about to walk in the door.

    It was a little snug but we've stayed in value so it wasn't an issue for us.

    We found the pack-n-play in the closet. Got it all set-up and D’s bed made. We did baths and went to bed. This was our latest night out this trip and we were tired.

    What a great day!! I have never caught Character Training at Epcot, so that's definitely a goal for a future trip! We really love eating at Akershus. My son is a Princess lover (still! at age 9! I always wonder if that will wear off soon, but I think he just loves the attention they give him :) )
