This week MiniMe, Beloved and I went to see the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. First of all, the park is decorated beautifully. If you've never been able to visit France, England, Morocco or Germany during the holidays, you can experience a taste of it at Epcot. Walking through them all is a great way to learn more about holiday traditions around the world.
We started our evening with dinner at Marrakesh in Morrocco. Everyone had to put on their "try new things" faces as the menu at Marrakesh is a little different than what we're used to. MiniMe, who usually has no problem trying new things, was being a little stubborn. So when the salad and appetizer came and I couldn't get her to give it a try, I let her know that they wouldn't let her ride the camel after dinner if she didn't give everything a try.
"What camel? Is there a camel? Can we really ride it?" she asked.
"There's a camel," I replied. "But I doubt they'll let you ride it if you don't participate in the meal."
So wouldn't you know it, she gave a few things on the menu a try. And wouldn't you know it, I made up the whole camel thing. Well kind of.
She was not amused.
But we all thoroughly enjoyed the Epcot Christmas experience!
