Our day at epcot

This morning we went to epcot. It was hot today. Disney is real good about making the wait lines cooler by having A/C blasting. It wasn't that crowded and the longest wait time was 30 minutes.

Here are a couple of attraction. The Cisco Kid was so excited he met the height requirement so he could ride Test Track. This was a great ride. Not only was it a great ride, but it was very informational. It informed us on how every aspect of the cars are tested for safety and reliability.

We were behind this car. We are going to go through their tests for brakes, suspension, acceleration etc.
The three of us are in the front seat and the Cisco Kid is covering his eyes because their was a trucks headlights headed for us.
The attraction, The Seas with Nemo & Friends is so cute.

Tomorrow we are off to Blizzard Beach.

The Balloon Ride

The balloon ride was allot of fun. We flew 400 feet up in the air. It was a helium filled balloon that was tethered to a pulley. It would release so we could go up. The view was great. Other than the wind picking up a little and causing the balloon to drift off center, it was a mellow ride. I could see the possibility of that ride getting scary if the wind picked up. This is worth trying.

After the balloon ride we went to the Rain Forest for dinner.
Dinner was really very good.

This was a cute little train. The Cisco Kid loved riding it.

These are a couple of games they have at Disney Quest. I have to say I really didn't like the place. Its a very, very large game place. Five stories of games to be exact.
The guys are riding a Buzz Lightyear bumper cars. These cars could pick up rubber ball that they had scattered around and the passenger "gunner" could put them in a shoot and shoot them at another car. They said it was a blast. You see the Cisco Kid driving.

Tomorrow we plan on spending the day at epcot. We'll see what adventures we can do there.


Disney World

We have arrived at Disney.
Tonight we have decided to take a balloon ride in Down Town Disney. I will let you know how that goes when we get back.

Many Thanks and getting ready for Disney

I would like to thank everyone who participated in "What would your children say?" "Wednesday" There was a few new families that joined in the fun this week. We had hilarious to shocking posts that were very entertaining to read. I really enjoyed all the posts and the comments made not only on my blog but on everyone else’s. I'm looking forward to next week.

Today we are getting ready for a Disney trip. Over the next five days I will probably totally bore you. last night I mentioned to the Cisco Kid that we have to pack for Disney and that was all it took.

He got the suitcase out. He said the smaller suitcase was his.
He then started packing,
and he packed,
and he packed,
and he packed some more.
I reminded him that we are going to Disney and he won't have time to play with any of that. He then said, but I NEED THEM!
Well how can you argue with someone who "needs" that stuff.

"What would you children say?" Wednesday

This is the second post on the funny, hilarious and everything else in between, "What would your children say?" Wednesday. If you don't have a kid, feel free to post something about your furry four legged friends!

Let me set the stage for you. Every night we have the same routine. The Cisco Kid gets a choice of a desert. Then he gets a bath in our big tub. He just about uses it like a pool, playing with all his toys and watching TV. Once he has his bath and brushes his teeth, he reads us a story and goes to sleep. On the weekends he gets a treat. Everything is the same except we read him a story and he gets to fall asleep in our bed watching T.V. Last month for some reason, this crazy six-year-old child thinks he is impervious from any and all repercussions. As the Chief was changing the channel on the TV in the bathroom, this boy who has temporarily lost his mind decided to kick the Chief and say, what do you think you are doing. I want Scooby Doo. I have to say that definitely was the worst move this kid made. The Chief, who is usually very care free and laid back with the Cisco Kid, decided in a blink of an eye, this boy just lost all TV privileges, all playing in the bath tub /pool, no falling asleep in our bed while watching TV, and the one that hit home the hardest, was no desert the next night.

The next fifteen minutes is him pleading his case to me. Cisco kid: Mom, talk to Daddy. I want sugar.
Me: I will not talk to daddy. You did something wrong, you have consequences . Cisco Kid: Mom please I want sugar.

Me: Did you say your sorry to daddy?
Cisco Kid: Yes, and he said thank you and I'm still not getting sugar.

Me: Well, he's right. Cisco Kid: Why me.... as he stamps his feet.
Cisco Kid: I'm so sad. Why is this happening to me.

Me: That's what happens when you do something wrong. You are going to get all your privileges taken away.
Cisco Kid. I won't do that again. " while he is stamping feet again."

Me: I bet you won't.

Me: Not helping by taking his picture.

Me: OK it's time to go to bed.
Cisco Kid: Will I get sugar tomorrow?
Me: No! you have consequences. Stop asking or I will take sugar away the next night also.Cisco Kid: NO! NO! But mom I just wanted Scooby Doo.

Me: You know that you don't kick anyone and talk to daddy that way. Cisco kid: OK... I understand. Will I ever get sugar again?

Me: OH! MY! GOODNESS!!!!! Me: Get In Bed.

This child was saying something else at this point. I can't remember, I blacked out.
Me: Finally!!!!

He really is a good child. I just can't wait until he has children and reads this.
