Soccer~Downtown Disney

Sunday was our last full day at Disneyworld. Boo hoo! Carter had soccer games at 12 & 4 so we planned to spend the entire day at Wide World of Sports then head to Downtown Disney for dinner. The sun was shining bright and it felt great to soak it in one last time!

On the way to the first game, we took a charter bus hired by the tournament. It was a huge over-the-road bus and it was packed! The bus driver let people sit on the floor and double up seats to accommodate more people(a tad bit illegal I think). I had one kid on my lap, one next to me, and three bags. My camera bag ended up getting shoved under the seat in front of me and when I reached to take a picture at the WWS entrance, I noticed it was missing. Worst feeling ever! I was seriously sick to my stomach...not to have lost my camera (which is the most expensive item I have ever bought!) but that five days worth of pictures had been lost. I walked back to the bus drop and the very helpful guys working radioed the bus driver and he found my camera bag buried under a seat. They put it on the next bus and I received it just 30 minutes after realizing it was gone. I was so happy!!!

Carter's team was pretty much over-matched the entire tournament. Some of the teams there were absolutely amazing. In fact, a lot of the kids don't even play organized team soccer, they only play 3v3....and you could tell! They were awesome. But Carter had a great time and played really well.
In between games, we sat in the baseball complex and watched some very minor league baseball. There was an airplane sky-writing some biblical inspirations! Carter went with the Hurfords to Fuddruckers for lunch...I think he needed to get away and be with his friends!
Sunday night, we headed for Downtown Disney to eat at T-Rex. Carter chose to stay back at the hotel and hang out with Zach. They swam with the rest of the team and who knows what else!Bennett was mortified that he was sporting the same sunglasses tan line as his dad!!T-Rex is a very cool restaurant.
I bought this Tinkerbell skirt for Cate's birthday while she was asleep in her stroller. As soon as she woke up, Brady threw the bag at her and let her open it!! So much for it being a birthday present!
Great picture of Cate having a meltdown. It was her one and only major meltdown and only lasted about 3 minutes. Not bad for it being 11pm on the 6th night of the trip!! But realistically, there is no need for meltdowns when you have seven adults and three brothers willing to accommodate your every need :)

On Monday, our bus didn't leave for the airport until 12:00, so the kids had all morning to swim and play at the playground.
I did not get to enjoy the pool because Scott and I had to try and pack this tornado of a room! I thought it was funny when my sister commented that it's pointless to pay more for a bigger room when you aren't in it very much...of course, she had TWO people staying in her room and we had SIX! Aunt Fran and some of her favorite people! See where Cate is sitting? She looked like this the ENTIRE trip. I was looking forward to getting home so I could actually see her :)

And that's the end of my pictures :( Disneyworld 2012 was the best time!! Looks like Brady will be joining the 3v3 circuit this somebody warn Disney...we're coming back in 2013!!!
