It is Super to be 7!!!
Friday afternoon I brought treats in to Lindsi's class to celebrate her birthday. Then, after school, we drove down to Ft Wilderness (at WDW) for a weekend of camping & birthday celebrating. We met up with my parents (& Jami). My sister & her kids drove over for the evening. After supper, we walked over to the BIG campfire & did a sing along & met Chip & Dale.
They also show a movie, but since we had a big day planned for Sat, we decided to call it an evening. Lindsi's CI batteries died just before the sing along started. I was so glad I could just leave the girls there (with my family) & run back to get some more. Oh..the perils of being a single parent.
On Sat, we headed to a breakfast at Chef Mickey's. The girls enjoyed it. For us, the Princess breakfasts are #1. We have also enjoyed lunch at the Crystal Palace with Pooh & Friends. This was good, but of the 3, was probably third on our particular list of favorites. They enjoyed it. Although this was the trip that Lindsi finally "got" that they are really people dressed as big characters.
Because it was Lindsi's actual birthday, she had a free day at Disney. We opted for Hollywood Studios. We had not been there before. It was less crowded, lots of air conditioning, & we only had half a day to spend at the park. We actually saw everything we wanted to....Beauty & The Beast Show, Little Mermaid Show, Muppet Show, Honey I Shrunk The Kids Playground, Block Party Parade, & saw several characters. We can mark that one off our list now. Lindsi got several Happy Birthday buttons to wear & absolutely EVERYONE at WDW made a huge deal out of it being her birthday. It was great fun for her. After a quick dinner at the camper, we went down to watch the boat parade & fireworks show.
On Sunday we went to the pool, Lindsi & her cousins rode & rode & rode down the water slide. We went downtown Disney & played in the water area there as well. We visited the Lego Center, the Toy Store, & the new Dinosaur Store. We went to the Disney store & so absolutely true to form, Lindsi chose an art set & Jami picked out Cinderella shoes with their Disney dollars.
A fun & exhausting weekend!!!!!! Happy Birthday Sweetie!!!
