|Gospel Brunch performers at House of Blues|
After being entertained by the gospel show, we decided to go separate ways for the afternoon. Mum and dad found a shady spot to listen to the musicians playing in the square, Peter and the kids hit the Lego store before going to the outlet mall for some shopping and Justyn and I wandered around Downtown Disney mixing people watching with some shopping. Finally we collected mum and dad and caught a taxi back to the house to have a bit of rest and relaxation!

Later this afternoon, our friend Patty and her daughter Keegan who live in San Diego were coming to visit so Justyn and I decided that we needed a few items from the grocery store so we took the Red Baron (the name of our Dodge Journey SUV of course!) out for a drive around the local streets. Visits to the diverse American grocery stores are a huge source of entertainment for Justyn and me as we love checking out the different items and especially gazing longingly at the cereal aisle! There was no cinnabon cereal but we danced a little jig when we discovered find Ben and Jerry’s Late Night Snack icecream in the freezer section!
|Dinner at W Laster with family & friends|
Before long Patty and Keegan were knocking on the door. We had last seen them nearly three years ago when we were riding rollercoasters so it was wonderful that we were able to catch up again. They had booked a hotel not far from our house and stayed for dinner. When the shoppers returned, it was wonderful to be able to introduce Keegan to Taylor, Brittany and Byron and the two girls got along instantly. For dinner, we decided to try The Cheesecake Factory based on Patty’s recommendation so with order in hand, Peter and Taylor braved the traffic and queues to fetch our dinner which included a Banana Cream Cheesecake! Dinner was great (even though the cheesecake was completely frozen…) and there was lots of laughs and stories over glasses of wine and beers.
