Pre-Trip A first, a last, and a galaxy far, far, away... (Now with bonus London TR!)

🐝 BEE IS GOING BACK! 🐝 BEE IS GOING BACK! 🐝 BEE IS GOING BACK! 🐝

So, this title might be a bit misleading. There are actually several firsts planned for this trip, and a semi-first. But "A first, another first, yet another first, a sorta first, and a last" doesn't roll off the tongue (or fingertips) so well.

For now, I'll leave you with the cast.

Me (Bee): 30
DW (M): 30
M's mom (MIL)
M's dad (FIL)
M's brother (BIL): 27
My brother (Jay): 24

And a countdown!
Our next trip  

EDIT: Now we're doing a Passholder preview and going down early for two nights, then flying home, then proceeding with our regular trip as planned. So, here's THAT countdown:
CRAZY PEOPLE DO A PASSHOLDER PREVIEW

M and I both found swimsuits so we can swim in the scary clown pool :D

Now I'm working on finding a pair of sandals for the pool. I found some I like at Target online...and so did everyone else, apparently, because they are all sold out. :arghh:
What kind of sandals?

New ShopDisney order arrived! These mugs were on sale for $7.49 (!!!) so we grabbed the pair.

And, of course, we have to add to our Disney shirt collection before we go!! We got two rainbow WDW shirts and one Mickey and one parks pocket shirt. The Mickey shirt is actually super huge and long (almost down to my knees) so it may require a bit of altering before I wear it.

Day 6, cont.

Our next destination was Queen Mary's Rose Garden, which is inside Regent's Park.

There are literally thousands of flowers (maybe millions??) in the rose garden; they are mostly roses of course, but there are other kinds of flowers as well. The smell was just incredible. The next 2-3 posts will be just photos from the garden.

As you can perhaps tell from the ripples in the water, it started to rain while we were there. We didn't mind as it was light enough not to bother us, but heavy enough to bother most of the people there, so we soon found ourselves nearly alone in the garden!

This variety of rose is called Singin' in the Rain!
