My next Disney World tip? Can’t make this one any more clear or plain for you. STAY AT DISNEY’S ART OF ANIMATION RESORT!!! Unless it’s when we’re going back (because, yes, we need to get back) and then I don’t want it over crowded. LMAO
Now, I could go into a really long explanation about why this is THE resort to stay at, but honestly? This is one case where a picture really can tell a better story. So, here’s a buttload of photographs from our time at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. Right from that first night we arrived, until our last minutes on Disney property:
Charlie is a little dog with a ton of personality packed into his little frame. I had a lot of fun with him and his people – in spite of a drizzly not so nice day. So, without needlessly painting the lily, here are a few photographs:
I initially planned on sharing a couple stories today… the girlie had her pre-k graduation ceremony today (no, she won’t be in kindergarten next year, she’ll be in pre-k again – so next year this time we’ll have another pre-k graduation). She had a playdate too. I also considered sharing the little tale I shared on FB, which I suppose I still can because it’s short (though I considered telling the elongated version). But instead I’ll share something else, but only after the story I shared on FB. LOL
Today, the girlie said to me that she was going to pretend to be a lichen. But she went on to clarify: “a lichen that grows on trees mom, not the people who turn into werewolves”. I thought it was pretty cute. And if nothing else, I think we can safely say that we’ve provided her with a well rounded education thus far. 🙂
So… early in the evening, I dropped the wee girlie and my husband off at my parents place before heading to a photo shoot. My parents were heading out and asked if we could watch everyone. Well, when I came back after my shoot and was making myself a grilled cheese sandwich the girlie came running into the kitchen and asked me to get my camera to take a picture of her and her Auntie Marie (my sister and Lily-Ann Marie’s namesake).
Firstly, Lily-Ann never asks me to get my camera to take a picture of her. She’s sick of me taking pictures of her. I have to barter to get pictures of her these days.
Second, Lily and Marie are often not even on talking terms. They love one another, but they each have a problem with one another too. With the girlie, it’s the green eyed monster. Marie gets my attention (or my moms) and the girlie doesn’t want to share it. With Marie, the problem is that the girlie is three… and three is chaos.
So, for Lily-Ann to come running into the kitchen asking me to take a photo of the two of them together? That’s big. She further elaborated (when I took too long at the hot stove) “Mom, Marie is outside. I asked her and she said yes. Go get your camera, I need you to take a picture of us.” What else could I do? I turned off the stove and got my camera. But asking me to take ONE picture? Nuh uh.
