Here are our day three morning shots of Zev hugging the Goofy statue. Do you notice anything special about him today?
He was so excited to be wearing his Goofy costume on his way to meet Goofy.
Here is my son literally kissing Goofy's feet. Ari said he was just a few inches from bird poop, but we couldn't stop it.
We went into Epcot and had our picture made with our own little Goofy.
We met my fantastic friend Becky (who helped us out with our trip!) and she took these fun pictures.
She took this cute one of Zevi too.
As soon as we walked in, who did we see? GOOFY! Zev was so excited to see Goofy when they were dressed alike. Goofy pointed out that they matched too.
Zev was having the time of his life.
Here Goofy was trying to Zev how to stand like him in a picture. See Zev's little foot and arm?
Zev did not feel shy today. Everyone in line behind us thought it was so cute. They were taking pictures of Zev and Goofy too.
Right before we left Goofy even signed Zev's hat!
Then we went off to the Nemo ride. Here is Zev outside. He does love to pose with statues.
playing a matching game inside
Zev and Daddy in the shark's mouth! Ari looks a little more scared than Zev.
Next we went on the figment ride which Zev really liked. Here he is after conducting music with his arm.
We walked around Epcot a little more, and ate the most delicious lunch ever. Ari, Zev, and Becky ate in Morocco. I had escargot and my favorite sandwich in France. I was a happy girl. Then Becky had to go to work running events in Epcot, and we were going to go back to the Magic Kingdom. On our way out we saw that Goofy was still standing there with a very short line so we went to say goodbye.
This would be our perfect Christmas card picture, if only Tahl was in it!
Zev is still trying to pose just like Goofy taught him. This time he also remembered his gloves.
Do you see me Goofy?
Goofy's assistant had a great idea for them to pose together as big and little goofy.
How cute is this? After this though, Zev kept wanting to walk around with his hat pulled down low to look like the real Goofy.
Next we went to meet Daisy on our way out. Zev had lost most of his shyness with the characters by now and was just hugging her up.
Zev also really improved on looking at the camera and saying cheese.
We got back in line AGAIN to meet Goofy for a third time that day so I could get a picture with my cell phone to text to my mom.
Zev didn't seem to mind the chance to play with Goofy again.
We also got this picture which showed how over the moon he was to be with his hero.
Then we went on the the Magic Kingdom. The first thing we did when we got there was to let Ari show off his amazing hula hooping skills.
Ari tried to do it with Zev in his hoop, but he didn't really help much.
We went right back to ride on Dumbo again. This time I got to go with Zev.
What I think he loved most was the power to make the Dumbo fly up and down.
He wasn't really sure that the wanted to ride on the Goofy roller coaster again, but we talked him into it.
He was a little sorry.
Ari said the whole time he was going, "eeeeeee eeeeee." He was very afraid. When we got off he made it very clear he would NOT be riding again.
We went have a celebration snack! This was a delicious Mickey pretzel.
We went back to see Mommy and Daddy's favorite Mickey's Philharmagic. Zev loved it just like us. We saw it a few times over the trip.
Cheese! I think we rode the teacups three times too.
Then we went back to eat dinner and see the fireworks at Epcot. Becky had set us up with VIP seating.
She also brought Zev a cupcake surprise.
He was covered in frosting, and he told us this was a no grown-ups cupcake. He was not going to share any bites!
Becky gave us all these really cool glasses that show Mickey's whenever you look in a bright light. Zev told us he saw "millions and zillions of Mickey's!"
Ari used them over the camera lens to take a picture of what it looked like.
I was surprised the pictures turned out. Thanks so much Becky for the best fire works experience ever! We love you!
