#7 Have an adults only weekend at Disney

This weekend, I actually crossed two things off of my list. David and I went to Disney with three other couples. No kids… Just the adults :-)   
We arrived at Port Orleans (Riverside) on Thursday night before any of the other couples. We checked in and took a friend of ours out to dinner before gallivanting around Disney.  This is our room, which was great, but the view was even better. 
After dinner, we went in search of the campground at Disney where we will we be staying in December. On the way over, we went to the Wilderness Lodge and just happened across the electric water pageant. I had always wanted to see it, but had never quite been in the right position to see it. My timing was always off! It was awesome! We got to the campground, walked around, and as we always do… Go about determining which is the best campsite at each different campground.

On Friday morning, we went to the expo, which was packed, where we met up with the Herrings. After that, the four of us went to the opening game of spring training for the Braves. We sat in the outfield grass and it was perfect.
Friday night, we went to dinner at the Yacht Club resort at the Yachtman's Steakhouse. We celebrated Carrie's birthday and the food was awesome. Then we walked around the Boardwalk Resort, which I had never seen.  It was an awesome environment. 

Saturday, we spent the day at Epcot. We walked around all the countries and had an Italian lunch to Carbo load for the race on Sunday. We didn't stay until the park closes like we normally do, because Sunday we had to wake up at 2 AM. This truly was a perfect day.

Trying out the hats of the World !!!

Power to the Princesses!!!
One of my Favorite Princesses!!!
Sunday, we woke up and ran a half marathon in the morning and then headed to Magic Kingdom at noon. We moved a little slower this afternoon, because Our legs were exhausted.  We wore our shirts, medals and tiaras to the park all afternoon :) 

We stayed through the fireworks, but couldn't make it one minute longer. We were asleep by 9:30.
Monday morning, we left to head home. Experiencing Disney with only adults was awesome. I love experiencing it with my kids, it is just an entirely different experience. I will be repeating both… With my children And without.
