Hi guys! Happy Tuesday. This is kind of a weird week for me since we are in Louisiana with my family while Bobby takes care of some business in New Orleans. You would think I would get a lot of work done not being in my actual house with distractions like laundry and dishes, but I am having a really hard time focusing here. I thought a fun picture post would be a good one for today, sharing some of my favorite photos from marathon weekend that weren’t in my race recap. We were in Disney for 6 nights, so a lot of other fun things went on besides the races themselves!
We stayed the first four nights at the lovely Yacht Club. Bobby had never stayed here before so it was fun to experience something new with him. We had a great room with a king bed and a huge balcony overlooking the quiet pool.
We hung out at Hollywood Studios Friday
Then picked up Karen and Jason from the expo and went to dinner at Trails End Buffet at Fort Wilderness. It was a fantastic meal with good friends and we went back later in the week!
On Saturday after the half marathon, we got cleaned up and headed over to the Magic Kingdom for lunch at Liberty Tree Tavern (and to stay loose for the marathon the next day!)
The next day after the Full marathon we went to dinner with Jen and Jeff at ‘Ohana
We had a great time with them as usual, and we were sad they were leaving the next day.
Monday morning we checked out of the Yacht Club and into the Beach Club for two nights on the concierge level. We called it a late anniversary weekend getaway.
Our room wasn’t ready so we ate breakfast and walked over to EPCOT. I love the proximity of this resort. Bobby even found a limited time magic photo op in Canada, but the characters weren’t there yet.
We ate lunch at the quick service place in China, before meeting up with Karen and Jason so they could eat in Mexico.
We texted Crystal and found out she was nearby, so we went over to France to meet up with her and Mary. The four of us met four of us first met this same weekend back in 2009. Crystal was running the marathon and the other three of us were not even runners yet. Too funny!
As we were taking photos, a random Japanese couple ran up to us and asked to take a photo with us. Sure! They handed over their camera and we took a picture. Bobby was laughing so hard, but he still managed to snap a photo with my camera, too.
After the mini photoshoot, we got a call saying our room was ready. We were dreading unpacking the car, so we just decided to go ahead and walk back and get that taken care of.

We had dinner at the hotel at Cape May Cafe, and it was nice to just walk back to our room after dinner. The next day we went to Animal Kingdom with Karen and Jason.
We at lunch at Flame Tree BBQ (side note, we loved all the eating outside we were able to do in the gorgeous weather!)
We went back after lunch and spent some time just relaxing at the resort, and went back to Trail’s End for dinner. We were sad to leave the next day, but we had a great trip and I can’t wait to go back for Princess!
QOTD: Would you prefer vacationing where it’s cold or hot?
