On day two in the parks we went to Epcot.  This was the only day of the trip where the heat was almost unbearable.  It was mid-afternoon on the second day of our five in the parks, and I seriously thought there was no way I was going to make it.  My body was so exhausted that while the family went on Mission: Space, I laid down on a cement bench and took a nap.  It was late afternoon.  I dozed for about 30 minutes and the temperature dropped substantially during that timeframe.  When I woke up, I felt much better and was able to really enjoy the rest of the trip.

Epcot had fewer rides than the other parks, but it was tremendously beautiful.  It has food from around the world.  Some of us had Italian, others had French, and others (gasp!) had Chinese:).   The flower gardens were amazing.  And Epcot has one of our very favorite rides: Soarin'.  It recently changed from Soarin' over California to Soarin' over the World, so we were able to go back and visit the great wall of China.

Our younger kids can't wait to drive:

Posing with the floral sculptures was a must.  They were incredible!  (If you can't tell, Sophi LOVES to be photographed!!!)

That's Lady and the Tramp behind us.

In the Mexico area we enjoyed the music of a Mariachi band.  Conner and Lexi wanted to dance.  I also love Sophi's little wiggles at the end of this. (The devices that Conner and Lex have around their necks are descriptive services.  They tell visually impaired people what some of the sights are as they walk through the park.)

For Lexi and Conner the sounds were very important.  They liked this waterfall:
