Last Day in Florida

Since today is our last day here and Don will be headed back to work as soon as we get back, we figured we'd just hang out around the house today. In the morning we took Rainah to the playground where she met a little friend from England named George. They played together for a little while and then we headed back for some lunch. After Rainah's nap we hung out by the pool where she had a great time! After dinner a few deer even came by to say goodbye! We're leaving bright and early in the morning, so off to bed early!

Disney Day 4 {Downtown Disney}

After a relaxing evening and a great night sleep, we decided to go check out Downtown Disney and do a little shopping.  We started out with a Ghiradelli coffee... to DIE for!  There were lots of fun stores, including the lego store and a great toy store with sweet Mr. and Mrs. Potato head stuff.  It was a nice relaxing morning, and we had a fun lunch at the T-Rex restaurant, where there were meteor showers and dinosaurs everywhere.  Rainah had fun and it was a nice low-key day.  Here's some of the fun:

She'd fit right in with his crew!

Trying on more hats!

Those are all legos... well, Rainah is in there somewhere, too

More legos!  Amazing!

And more water to play in

Disney Day 3 {Hollywood Studios}

This morning we got up bright and early, grabbed some breakfast (and coffee), checked out of the hotel, and got on the bus to head over to Hollywood Studios. Our first stop was the Playhouse Disney show, which we KNEW Rainah would love. They had puppets from the shows "Little Einsteins", "My Friends Tigger and Pooh", "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse", and "Handy Manny". It was really cute and she got really into it.
Then we went to the Little Mermaid show, which was also really cute. She loved the dancing fish and surprisingly sat through the whole thing.  
As we were leaving that show, Rainah was able to meet several characters, including the Little Einsteins and Jojo the Clown and her lion, Goliath.  She loved giving them all hugs and kisses and hamming it up for the cameras.  
We had a quick lunch and let her play on the "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" set, which she loved, but then it started raining so we took cover for a few minutes.  It passed pretty quickly so we walked around a bit more and attempted to watch the Muppets 3-D show, but Rainah refused to leave her glasses on and and was starting to get a bit restless.  We walked around a bit more and saw a parade with a bunch of the Toy Story characters.  
After that we took the bus back to the hotel and walked around and got a few more photos before we took off to go back to Aunt Ruth and Uncle Jeff's.  Rainah got her first good nap on our way back, too.  We had a great time at all the parks and hope we can get back again!
