Disney World Part 3

I really enjoyed riding on the monorail.
Everyone keeps asking the girls if they met Mickey Mouse.  They sure did, and so did the grandparents!

They are about to go in the Cnderella dinner.
Prince Charming
Sarah Kate was so excited that she met Cinderella!!!!

So happy!!!!!

Prince Charming asked Emily to dance!  It made her day!!!!
So proud after her dance.

To be honest, I was not too excited about going to WDW.  I am not a princess/cartoon kind of person.  I was never into anything Disney when I was a child.  I just liked playing baby dolls and I have always liked real life t.v. shows and movies.  I have never ever been able to pay attention to cartoons.  I guess I am just WEIRD. girls love all things Disney and I loved seeing everything through their eyes.  WDW is a well oiled machine.  It was just soo so nice and clean and a whole lot of fun!!!!!  I loved everything about it.  I would go back today if I could.  What could be better?  I was with my family that I love.  I got to sit on slow moving fun little rides with the girls.  I saw the best 3D EVER!!!!  I experienced technology at it's best.  I did not have to cook or clean or do laudry for a week.

My in-laws took us all to Disney when they celebrated their 30th anniversary. I was not too sure about it but we did a Princess lunch at the Epcot Centre and honestly, I was just as excited to meet Cinderella as my 7 year old niece was!

My son and daughter-in-law just left for Disney this morning. They are celebrating her parents' 25th anniversary, her grandparents' 50th anniversary, my DIL's graduation from college and my son's big job promotion. Not a kid in the bunch but a bunch of big kids. Glad you guys had fun!

So glad you had a good trip! We went last October and had a great time. Neither of my kids (especially the boy!) are that into princesses, so we don't do any character meet and greets, but they still had a great time. I'd love to go back too!

I was the same way. When we first took our daughter a couple years ago I DREADED it!! Then we got there and I fell in love. We have now been back 4 times in 3 years! My kids love it, we love it, it's clean, and it just works :) Glad y'all had a blast!

It looks like ya'll had a lot of fun. How awesome your girls got to get dressed up and have dinner with Cinderella and meet Prince Charming. I haven't been to Disney World since I was 5 and I know it's changed sooo much since then. I can't wait to take our kids. I know they'll a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y love it!!

I have really enjoyed reading about your trip! We love WDW! Soarin is my favorite ride too. The Cinderella dinner is so fun. I love SK's expression when she is hugging Cinderella. I'm so glad you got to go!

We were in Disneyland last week! My dad wanted so bad to take our girls (4 and 11 months). I had the hardest time getting excited about it because I'm just not a "theme park" sort of person, and like you said - was never into cartoons! Once we got there though, I did have the best time. How could I not? Our 4 year old was just enamored by all the characters! The only ride she cared anything about was the carousal (that you can ride for $1 at the mall!) - ha! But she adored meeting all the characters, and after leaving Rapunzel, realized she "forgot" to tell her something, and Rapunzel was kind enough to come outside of her cottage so our sweet girl could tell her she is her favorite princess and give her "one more" hug!
Enjoyed your reading dear.:)

I'm the same way Laurie... Enjoyed Disney movies, but was never "crazy" into it. We have been 3 times with our kids and my husband and I both say we could go without them. Ha!!

So glad you had fun! I enjoy reading your posts!!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
