Our 8 year Celebration...

Tomorrow is our 8 year wedding anniversary so yesterday we left for a day and night at the Beach Club resort at Disney and went to Epcot. The Beach Club was awesome and now we are planning a large scale family vacation in one of their suites for us and the kids and we are going to try to drage my father along and step-mother who has - GASP - never been to Disney in her lifetime!!! So we are thinking we can guilt dear old Dad into going with us if we pull the "see the boys enjoy Disney with Grandpa". How could he resist???
The Beach Club definitely could move into my #1 favorite on site resort spot bumping Coronado Springs down to #2. Their pool is huge - actually 3 large pools joined together for the Beach Club, Yacht Club, and Villas and sports a huge pirate ship slide! They also have a Cape May Cafe to remind me of Jersey days and a great old fashioned ice cream shop with burgers. We went to Epcot for the day and had dinner on the patio dining area of the restaurant in Italy we ate at 5 years ago on our 3rd anniversary. It was beautiful to eat outside at sunset! And the canoli we had for dessert was divine! :) We also were able to see Illuminations for the first time in 5 years since normally we are unable to see it due to Bam-Bam's issues with fireworks and crowds. We walked on the Boardwalk for awhile before turning in for the night. Then this morning we went to the Cape May Cafe for a character buffet breakfast with Goofy, Minnie and Chip & Dale. It was great. we hit downtown Disney for souveniors for the boys and a thank you gift for my sister for watching them for us before heading home. It was a much needed break alone together!! Can't wait for the next time we visit "The World".
