The next day we headed back to Magic Kingdom. We debated if we should go somewhere else but our hotel was so convenient to MK and there were still some things we wanted to do. Next trip we will have to venture out.
|James loved the tea cups!|
|He also requested that Pappy ride the race car with him. Maybe my dad is more adventurous than I was the day before.|
|Looks like Pappy didn't mind!|
We didn't get a picture but I dragged James on the new 7 Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster. He told me he liked it about 5%.
|We headed to the Be Our Guest castle for lunch where we had one of the new, coveted lunch reservations.|
|I will say it was better than most Disney food and James loved his Mahi fish! So much that he cried and begged for me to order him another portion. That was also my signal that we needed to head back for a nap.|
That afternoon our plan was to go back but we were all worn out and just wanted some down time.
|Taking a stroll on the "beach"|
One of James's highlights of the trip was that our hotel had an arcade and Ryan took him to play some games. They ended their time with one last Mickey ice cream.
I really wanted to try the famous restaurant at the hotel and also have an adults' dinner so that night we had reservations with my parents and had a babysitter for James. James was beyond excited about having a babysitter. Maybe he needed a break from us! The dinner was delicious but most of all it was fun to just relax with my parents and talk about the trip.
|The coolest coffee pot ever. And the best coffee I have ever had|
|I need one of these at home to serve with my coffee|
|We even got a rose to take with us|
We were up bright and early to make the trek back to NC.

Some people may be thinking, what about Harrison? Poor buddy got left behind this time. I struggled with the Mommy guilt for that but the truth is, at 21 months this just is not a good age for him for Disney world. He would have loved aspects of it but he sure would have had us all up by 5 a.m. each day and I'm afraid the meltdowns would have been frequent. I promise we will make it up to you sweet boy! Harrison had a great time with his Nana and Pop while we were gone. They went to River Park North, painted, did some practice egg hunts, and played and played. I don't think he missed us a bit! We sure did miss him though.
