    Saturday morning and as luck would have it when we are not going to a water park then it decides to be stupidly sunny and hot.

    But we went to DTD instead for the mandatory 'buying other people gifts' shopping trip. Something for the parents, something for the god daughter, something for the neighbour's uncles daughter's best friend's hamster. That kind of thing. God forbid we actually have any money left to buy stuff for ourselves.

    Socks. We bought ourselves some socks. You simply cannot have too many socks.....

    And soap. I got 8 different soaps yay! But not the beaver butt soap, that's for a different park.

    Shopping done and we head off to the MK. And it is CRAZY in there today. So many people!! Mostly with strollers, prams, scooters, wheelchairs. Wheels, anything with wheels basically. All that was missing was some crazy parent riding a quad bike with children in a side car. Most queue rides are 40 minutes and over. People and their manners sigh.....

    We try to use our FP for the speedway cars, but it starts to rain (again!) and it's closed. So we do space mountain and then go back just as it opens again. We confuse staff again with our multi coloured magic band light up thingies. They're impressed. We're smug..... Well, a little bit.

    Ok a lot.

    Chef Mickeys for dinner. Great variety of food. Haven't even sat down when I get rugby tackled by Minnie stalking us for a picture. I'm going to have to take out an injunction against that one. Have to time grabbing handfuls of food between character meets. Have to report Pluto for trying to hump my leg. Not sure if it was the character or the staff member inside. We have that effect on people.

    Back out for some wandering out MK followed by preferred viewing in the rose garden for Wishes. Very good seats. If you can get these do so, the view of the fireworks is amazing and Tinkerbell flies right over your head.

    Dash back to the bus....employing usual tricks of using tazer guns on small crying children (give them something to actually cry about), yanking of pony tails when someone undercuts us with a pram, and of course the old favourite, tripping up the obese man in a fitness t-shirt and taking out hundred people at a time. Snag the last places on the bus back to AKL and we are done for the day.

    Stephen's bravery at sitting through his first journey in IASW warrants a present...possibly the shirt in the first pic?

    They disappear for months and we don't know where they've gone and we're all sad again. They mustn't do this to us.

    Great photos, don't tell me there were done on a phone! IF they were:
    A. I am never taking my DSLR again,
    B. Where can I get that phone?

    That T Shirt by the way is hysterical!
