We started our off day with lunch at Earl of Sandwich (yum!) and then went to the Disneyland Hotel to walk around and check out the shops-- and characters!
While walking around outside we ran into Minnie and Goofy!
After some shopping fun, we made our way to Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar for appetizers and pretty drinks while the kids ran over to the Coffee House to get dole whip floats. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the breeze (and break from walking!) for awhile.
Ellie asked so sweetly for a cup of cherries that they obliged-- and she loved it!
We spent the rest of the afternoon walking around Downtown Disney and then everyone took a rest/nap at the hotel before we went to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles for dinner (double yum!!).
When we got back to the hotel, the kids conned Grandma into going to Starbucks and using her free drinks to get them each a venti frappuccino! Grandpa didn't get anything, but we let him carry our iced teas around so he didn't feel left out-- and Ellie is the queen of finishing everyone's drinks.
