Beauty and The Beast

Saturday night was Mom/Daughter and Father/Daughter date night.  Raymond took Abby bowling and to eat at Meemaw's and I took Allie to dinner and to see Beauty and the Beast at the Orpheum.  We went with Ainsley and Ammie.  After dinner at Chili's we headed downtown. 

Silly girls

waiting so impatiently for the show to start. 

This was Allie's first Broadway show at the Orpheum.  She asked during the first act if we could back and see it again the next day. It was a success and I will take her back to see another show again soon. 

Summre Update

Hanging out at The Tacky Shack in Oxford, MS.  We went and saw my brother, Keith in his new place in Oxford, MS.  We went to lunch at the hole in the wall place that was had a Volkswagen Bug inside.  The front seats had been removed and a TV placed in it.  The girls sat inside the car for over an hour watching the Disney Channel. 

Trip to Target

Bellevue VBS Show, the girls and Nock Nock.  Bellevue' VBS ends with 3 performances of their drama that the kids have seen each day.  They had a man in a hang glider flying across the room this year, rain and snow (water and white confetti).  After the show you get to go stand in a long line to get pictures made with the performers.  Kinda sounds like Disney......

Then the next week it was VBS at Highland. Living on the Wild Side.  Here is Allie, Abby & Reid with their Panda Jars.

Our swimming pool was tossed at the end of last year when it got a hole in it, so this summer we joined the YMCA.  We went out to the Millington Y with Amy and Ryan one afternoon.  Here is Allie coming out of the slide. They loved going down this slide over and over again.  For a while the girls and Ryan had the slide all to themselves.

Another Lost Tooth

Allie lost another tooth on Saturday the 4th.  She has been messing with this tooth since our Disney trip.  I think she really wanted to lose it while we were in Disney!  I had put the girls to bed and she comes running out of her room, "momma, momma, look!" and there was her tooth. You can see how happy she is to have lost it.  The tooth fairy came to visit and brought her 4 quarters!

Note to parents: Have kids stop reading now!!

Note to self: Keep dollar bills on hand from now on.....Neither Raymond or I had a signal dollar bill on us or in the house!  So lesson learned, keep a dollar on hand, you never know when you might need it :)

Disney Food

I have been posting about the places we ate while we were in Disney, now here are the food pictures!  At Epcot we had lunch at Sunshine Seasons in The Land.  I had a Chicken Caesar salad with chocolate mousse cake. The cookie on my tray was one of the girls. My plate and the dessert plates made a Mickey Head :) 

Allie had a Pizza panini, surprisingly she ate it and liked it.  Abby had Mac & Cheese that was not very good at all.  Raymond had a turkey sandwich with some apple salsa like side and a muffin. 

Dinner was amazing! La Hacienda will be on our list to eat again next time we go to Epcot. 

Tri-Color Chips and 2 Salsa

We shared the "La Hacienda", it has steak, chicken and pork along with corn and mixed grilled veggies served with corn tortillas. 

Dessert~ Empanada and more chocolate mousse. The girls had ice cream.

Hollywood Studios ~ Mama Melrose
Raymond's Flatbread
 Allie's Pizza

my yummy dinner-can not remember the name, chicken, pasta, red pepper and spinach
 girls dessert
 Cannoli Cake

I don't have pictures of the 2 buffets we had breakfast (1900 Park Fare) and dinner at (Boma).  Boma was good, I would recommend it if you were looking for a place to eat at Animal Kingdom Lodge.  Park Fare was your typical breakfast buffet. The girls enjoyed the Characters at Park Fare. 

Whispering Canyon Cafe ~ A Must Do for us again!
New York Strip

Canyon Skillet (chicken, beef, pork and ribs, corn, mashed potatoes and baked beans)
 Lots of Ketchup
 Bottomless Milkshakes (we all enjoyed this)

O'hana Breakfast ~ Best Breakfast ever!!!

Fresh fruit and pineapple bread (I found a recipe for the bread and hope to try it this summer)

It was served family style and they brought mickey waffles to our table as well. 

Alabama Family

We took a different a route home than the one we took to get to Orlando.  Going home we drove through Atlanta and over to Kevin and Susan’s and spent the night.  Saturday morning we got up and the girls played with Zachary and Marissa.  They all get along so well, I really wish we lived closer to them.  We all went and had lunch at Ron’s BBQ with Susan’s parents. After lunch we went back to Kevin and Susan's and all the kids rode Kevin’s 4-wheeler around the yard.  The girls loved riding the 4-wheeler.


All good things come to an end. After a fun week in Disney and fun with some of our cousins we continued our journey home.

O'hana Breakfast

Friday morning we headed out early again for breakfast at O’hana with Lilo, Stitch, Pluto and Mickey.  Best Breakfast we have ever had at Disney!  It was family style and everything was so yummy (Disney Food post coming). 

After breakfast Raymond went back to Hollywood Studios to ride ToT and RRC and the girls and I rode the monorail around through Epcot.  We got off the monorail at Epcot and caught the bus back to Pop Century. 
my bag is to heavy!!

Back at the hotel the girls and I loaded the car, shopped a little in the gift shop and I fed them lunch while we waited for Raymond to get back. 
Raymond got back around 1, got a snack and we left Disney L  Abby even cried when we left.   
Bye-Bye Pop Century
