Oh that birthday button.

Yesterday Michal and Kenna discovered the power of the Disney Birthday Button. When you wear it, people tell you "happy birthday," give you Mickey Mouse stickers, and, best of all, desserts with candles appear at the end of meals. That little round badge is a pretty powerful thing it turns out. And in the spirit of recognizing a good thing when they've got it -- especially something that involves chocolate and sprinkles -- Michal and Kenna insisted on wearing their birthday buttons again today.

So with birthday buttons proudly displayed, we headed back to Epcot where we brunched with princesses in Norway and, of course, received two of the much-coveted birthday cupcakes. We then headed to Animal Kingdom, where it turns out lots and lots of other people headed today too. We ended up in Dino Land, where Michal and Kenna got their faces painted -- the highlight of their day -- and later we had dinner at a fabulous restaurant at our hotel -- the highlight of my day. And yes, our meal, thanks to the cherished birthday button, ended with a birthday dessert. This time it was one I could get excited about -- molten chocolate cake and ice cream . . . with two candles.

It's a good thing we head home tomorrow or I am positive they would both want to wear their buttons for a third day. And I would be tempted to let them. There is, after all, dessert involved.

  7. Loving the new blog layout, etc. The picure here is a real let down though. How come you and Eric didn't opt in on the face painting?
