Day 124. The Final Day.

We all slept in until 9:30 after our LONG day yesterday. Don’t you love hotel black out curtains? We made it just in time for the free breakfast at the hotel. Pastries and hot chocolate. How perfectly healthy! We spent the rest of the morning in the pool and had it all to ourselves. After that, we got packed up, checked out of the hotel and then headed over to Downtown Disney.

Our first stop there was Tortilla Joes. I think that is the only restaurant we have tried at Downtown Disney because we love it so much that we can’t not go there. While we were eating, a balloon lady come around to make animals for the kids. She made us a shark, monkey, and turtle. Between our table and the table next to us, she spent about 20 minutes and made $9. I’m thinking of a career change.

We use a stick system in our classroom for some motivation. The kids get two grand prizes per year. One in the fall and one in the spring. Our Grand prize this spring was $20 Disney Money to pick a souvenir. It cost the kids 50 sticks. Every time we go to Disneyland, we always have the kids spend any money or pick a souvenir at the Disney Emporium outside the park in Downtown Disney AFTER our day at Disney. This way we are not shopping or looking at stuff like that during our time in Disneyland. It works out beautifully.

The kids took about an hour to look through every single item in the store, pick out, and pay for their stuff. Cameron chose one bag of candy and kept the $16 cash that was left. Emma chose to buy a Minnie Mouse stuffed animal. Taylor got a pair of Mickey ears and a keychain with her name on it.

After we hung out for a little while more and took a couple more pics, it was time to get back in the car and head for home.

It was a great trip. WAY TOO FAST! However, I am so thankful that we got to go!

Now there are just 46 school days left until summer.
