There is a huge upscale shopping mall right across from the hotel with some rather kicking restaurants attached to the facility. After Peter took a nap we explored only a corner of the mall and had a lot of fun. We had lunch at a chain Irish Pub-looking place called Fado and dinner at P.F. Chang’s Chinese Bistro another franchise chain. There is a Johnny Rockets we are eyeing for lunch today. Most of yesterday was about recovery from the drive and getting ready for the convention today.
Caroline went to sleep at a reasonable time but woke up at 4:40 AM due to a bad dream. Daddy tried to let Mommy sleep but Caroline wanted me so she got me and I sent Peter back to bed. She decided to get up at 6:30 after I had been up and down a number of times so my lack of sleep is probably going to show on my face today. My biggest job this morning is keeping her quiet so that the others can sleep. We played with her ponies and Teddy. We watched Madagascar which got funnier then when I had seen it in the theater. Currently she is eating breakfast and revving up for the day. Ariel and I will probably take her back to the Mall at some point after we have seen all there is to see here at the convention.
I am grateful for the fact that “Finding Nemo” is still in production so I can replace the copy that is scratched beyond the ability to play.
