They don’t get much better than this!

Waking up to sunshine was a good sign, Madison’s stomach feeling better was a better sign but being the first to be seated at the Tusker House buffet with Donald Duck and friends set up a great day! I can not say I have ever had the pleasure of being first in line at a freshly stocked buffet. What makes this even more special was being the first table in line for the characters to visit so we were able to wrap up a great meal which was loved by the kids in 35 minutes setting us on our way to the safari.


The weather was just gorgeous today! Having Madison feeling better and smiling again made the day bright for all of us!


Megan was able to ride Expedition Everest 5 times making today complete for her. Madison on the other hand hates rides so Frank and I took turns walking with her collecting stamps for her discovery card. She completed her card which made the day complete for her. Seeing the girls happy made the day complete for me and having all of us happy, well I guess that makes the day complete for the hubby.


Tomorrow we are set for breakfast at Cinderella’s castle and dinner at the luau. The weather looks to again be fabulous. I look forward to another great day!


Just another day

I start the day with the hope that today is better than the last.  Yesterday started with the system issues at Disney which was not really bad but a foreshadowing of things to come.

During the afternoon I had an oportunity to lay down for a while which I jumped on.  I grabbed 2 ice packs settled in flat on my back with the packs under each arm.  Ahhh the comfort.  It did not take long to slide off to dream land.  I do not know how long I was asleep when I heard the sounds of my doorknob being rattled followed by the doorbell.  I was in such a deep sleep I twisted and jumped straight up ice packs flying.  Turns out it was of course my husband who forgot his key.  I swore I pulled all of the stitches out of the right side.  Thankfully after sitting quietly with another ice pack and a pill the pain subsided.

Once I was again in a happy place, I began to get dinner ready for the kids before soccer practice.  Raviolli.  I started to boil the water and then headed to the fridge for an already opened bottle of sauce (by no means am I Julia Childs in the kitchen). As I pulled the bottle out it hit me that the lid was not secure.  When did it hit you may ask?  Well when the bottle dropped to the floor staying fully intact, which I believe made the situation worse.  Sauce literally  shot over 20 feet into my dinning room hitting not only chairs and the table but leaving a red streak as far as the eye could see across the beige carpet.  I stood screaming which brought the entire family to the scene.  There was a time early in our marriage that this would have caused a screaming fight between Frank and I over who put the jar away open.  Thankfully those days are long gone and everyone jumped in to clean up.  Once almost finished someone looked up, it was on the ceiling also! OMG!

Pain once again after carpet scrubbing, more pills. The carpet is not perfect but with 2 kids, an 80 pound dog and a husband it was not before the sauce.

So the Disney planning of the day.  Thankfully no issues today! These will be for a day spent in Animal Kingdom.  We will start at The Tusker House Cafe with Donald and the gang for Breakfast and The Rainforest Cafe for a fun and lively lunch.  We will head back to the hotel for an African inspired restaurant meal at Sanaa.

We are all so looking forward to this trip!
