Now it's Charlie's turn.
We went to Arabian Nights in Orlando as our "Anniversary Dinner". It was a good show. We watched Medieval Times and the Pirates Dinner shows on our last visit, and this one was quite a bit different.
When we called and booked the tickets, the woman told us that the show was at 6pm.
When we arrived at the appointed time (5:15) to get our tickets... the parking lot was deserted.
I found a back entrance, wandered around, found an office, and learned "oops, the show isn't actually until 8:30 tonight"
I have a bit of a life mantra goes: "don't stress out about things you can't change" and I generally find ways to roll with the punches. That being said, this was frustrating news for a family with 2 young children. The woman in the office told me that I was not the first person who was misinformed that morning and that she was very sorry. I might have seen if they wanted to make it up to me by giving us free drink tickets, but seeing as we already had 6 free drink tickets, I just walked back to the car.
I returned to our car where the 2 1/2 year old son (who had missed his nap) was sitting in his car seat demanding dinner. I broke the news to David and we tried to find something to do.
We drove through Celebration - which was interesting, to say the least :) Charlie took an evening nap in the car and Anna and David braved the picket fences and perfect neighbourhood of Celebration to join in with some kids at a park. We returned to Arabian Nights two hours later and our kids enjoyed the show. It was a good show!
At the end of the show, however, Charlie realized how tired he was...
"Charlie - are you going to sleep on the floor?"
"yes. i want to sleep on the floor"
It was a long walk to the car, with a 2 year old screaming NOOOOO I WANT TO SLEEP ON THE FLOOOOOOR! It was pretty funny, but I felt badly for Charlie who was sooooo tired.
Just moments before the utter collapse of toddler exhaustion:
