Also at Epcot we had some waffles from "Norway." Disney's do not compare to Katharine's, but they were a good snack and kept our bellies happy until we could get out of the park and somewhere for a very late dinner.

We ended up visiting Magic Kingdom twice. The first time we stayed until the fireworks...which Lucy and I missed because she was so scared. We ended up hanging out in a gift shop the whole time. We returned on our last day for a few hours to enjoy some of our favorite rides a few more times. At one point I saw a family with 4 children who looked to match up with ours, but about 5 years older than each of our kids, and I wondered if we would be back as a family in a few years. I can tell you one thing--if any more of our kids become "adults," it will take that long to save the $$ needed. ;)

and Pluto, who was obviously very tickled--I bet Mary Beth was tickling him--look, she even looks guilty. It was a good first day, even if it got off to a rocky start. Besides all this, we also saw a Komodo Dragon (which, strangely enough, had come up in our school work last month a couple of times) and dug for "dinosaur bones." And when all was said and done, we were all bone tired ourselves. Time to rest up for tomorrow--MAGIC KINGDOM!

After lunch we walked across the street to Castillo de San Marcos. This Spanish fort was built to protect St. Augustine from English expansion and is the oldest masonry fortification in the U.S. Cory loved this place with all the cannons, even though by now he was pretty whiny about all the walking.We proceeded to wait for a trolley, which took much longer than we expected. Long enough that we eventually decided to walk back to the trolley stop where the van was. Along the way Lucy started doing somersaults. Funny kids.

While on the East coast, we visited St. Augustine, the oldest European settlement in America. This really deserves a separate post. Until then, I'll tease you with this fun picture.

After that we headed to a Wal-Mart for some last minute things we would need for the launch, and then, as I mentioned yesterday, we settled in for a few hours of sleep. A good Easter. We missed church, although I did stumble upon a sunrise service on the beach when I went out for an early morning walk. The kids won't have fancy Easter pictures this year...don't think that's what it's all about, though, so it will be okay.
