2011 Disney World Post-Marathon Fun – Marathon Weekend Recap 4

Wow…….so I just put all of the pictures of our crazy times after the Marathon on this post and wow….looking through them all had me CRACKING up!  Heather, Bobby, Jason, and I are such nerds but we have a blast together!  I love you guys…really, I do! :0)

After the Marathon, we got on a bus for our hotel.  Bonus: NO long line at ALL! Yay!

We showered fast and changed fast since we were late for our Crystal Palace reservations and made our way to the Magic Kingdom!


Now let the laughter begin……


Smile, please.  Just take the picture!

This was incredibly amusing.  Piglet apparently thought that Bobby’s medal would taste good (?!) so he put it in his mouth.  When Bobby realized what Piglet was doing, he yelled:


“Don’t eat my medal!


I laughed so hard my side hurt. 


Poor Piglet was astounded!  He gestured with his hands like “I have my eyes on you!”  Hilarious…seriously.


I think Bobby was shocked by what he said….

Anyway, after our many adventures at Crystal Palace, we decided to go back to our hotel and rest.  We all had reservations that night for Whispering Canyon Cafe.  We were excited because we ate there in 2009 after the Marathon (Jen and Crystal ran that day) and we had a blast!


Heather and I with our medals!


After Bobby took our picture, he decided to take one of his own with my camera….


My husband doesn’t know how to smile, either….

I’m not sure what’s going on here but this picture CRACKS me up!  This wasn’t even our waitress in the background!! 


We all ordered milkshakes to drink….


….and The Skillet!  YUM!


Hungry boys!

I told the waitress that we needed ketchup cause it’s fun when you do that!  The only non-fun part was when we had to get up and bring it to another table….cause after you run a Marathon and you sit for a while, it’s hard to get up and move without groaning! :0)



We asked our waitress to take our picture.  Right before she snapped the picture, we said “Everyone hold up your meDals!”  My husband being the weirdo that he is, held up his FORK.  After we took the picture, I inquired as to why his fork was in the air and he said, “You told me to hold up my meTal!”  Wow….

If you’ve never eaten at Whispering Canyon Cafe (for dinner) at the Wilderness Lodge, you are totally missing out! 


These waitresses sang Happy Birthday to a young girl, then before she could do anything with her cupcake, the waitresses started EATING it! It was so funny because it was so unexpected!


Bobby and Jason messed with our waitress most of the night, so when it came time to celebrate Heather and Bobby’s Anniversary, the waitress was very comical about it.  “They’ve been married four years…I can’t imagine why they’ve lasted that long…” Funny stuff!


Of course, they made all the Marathon runners stand up and sing/move to “If you’re Happy and you know it….”

“If you’re hurting and you know it, just *groan*…” :0)

After all the shenanigans were over, we left.  Jason and I walked around our floor and out onto the balcony-you can see the Electric Light Parade out in the water! :0)


I was exhausted and didn’t last very long after dinner was over.  I was asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow, I think! :0)

What a fun ending to an incredible, dreams-come-true kind of day!

Up next: MARATHON MONDAY in the Magic Kingdom!!!
