Sunday was the end of the official conference. After the last plenary session ended (at which Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who has a 2 (or three? I can’t remember exactly) year old with Ds was the keynote speaker), we let the girls grab a nap and we headed to Disney. We decided that we couldn’t quite rationalize buying tickets into the park because Piper and Sawyer weren’t going to be able to partake in the festivities, anyway. So we headed to Downtown Disney instead. We stopped at some of the other resorts on the way.
The only problem we had was getting onto the buses. Every time we got on, we had to unload the babies, take everything off the stroller, fold up the stroller (while holding the baby, mind you) and somehow get onto the bus. By ourselves. Did the bus driver offer to help? Nope. Did they just look at us in quiet condemnation? Yup. Yeah. It was great.
But that’s besides the point.
(actually, I think this was another of those “please don’t look me in the eyes” events… But I truly love Piper’s face here, lol)
After we were done on the Boardwalk, it started to rain. No, it started to pour. We decided it was a good time to find a bus to Downtown Disney for real. Thankfully the bus stop was covered. You can kind of see it pouring off the roof above us behind her.
And, sadly, the only pictures I got of Piper with any characters, but cute nonetheless. The most fun part of this, though, was watching the faces of passers by when I put my seemingly four-month old on top of an unstable log. And then step away. Yeah- that was fun…
The rain this day was unbelievable. It wasn’t constant, but man, when it was raining it was r-a-i-n-i-n-g. And don’t even get me started on the humidity in general. I’m pretty sure I scared Piper on more than one occasion with my new ‘do. And probably more than just her, I’m sure.
That, my friends, is why I’m settled in Colorado. Lack of humidity. And, ya know, family ‘n’ stuff…
