A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes...

Lively Situation has been on another adventure.  For the past week, we have been at the happiest place on earth: Disney World :)

We drove down with Mama J, and my Nanny and PawPaw on Sunday, visiting Hollywood Studios on Monday.  We were there for a short time, but saw the main parade, visited many characters including Winnie the Pooh, the Incredibles, and Pinocchio who danced his way around the building with Sugar Mama.  
We met a few Disney Junior characters also...

On Tuesday we visited the holy grail... the Magic Kingdom.

Met a few princesses...

What an experience as a parent.  Watching my children be so excited about meeting these people made me tear up.  There is magic there.. if for no other reason then people who visit bring it with them. 

Wednesday we had breakfast with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, and Donald.  

Even our smallest girl got in on the action.  She could not have been more disinterested in the characters.  They would talk to her and she looked at them as if they were insane.  The magic is lost on her still :)

We also visited the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique to get princess make-overs courtesy of Mama J.  Nugget girl had an absolute meltdown.  The costume was too itchy and she didn't like the shoes.  So I opted out for her.  This place is magical, but also overly stimulating.  So only Sugar Mama emerged with a make-over. 

The lady working at our hotel asked for her autograph, which she signed as Belle, only she signed it Blel.. 

On Thursday we decided to scale it back some and relax.  We visited DownTown Disney for some eating and shopping.  My nanny got their faces painted... Notice Sugar Mama's hair still in place.  I'm not sure if its a tribute to all of the hair gel, or her cautious sleeping :)

We made it to the Magic Kingdom one hour before they were set to close for a private event.  But speaking of making dreams come true.  I just knew that if Nugget girl were to ever see Jessie from Toy Story in real life she just might pass out.  We'd met Woody and Buzz earlier at Hollywood studios, but imagine her reaction when the parade came through and Jessie was on the float.  Nugget girl was absolutely stunned when she came off the float to dance with the kids....

We had a pretty magical time while visiting Disney World, but we are exhausted.  We need a vacation from that vacation, but I'm pretty sure I said that when we came back from Vegas :) I cannot wait until we go again, to continue pin-trading and actually ride the rides.  Sugar mama rode the Tower of Terror with us and was frightened of the Twilight story line, not the actual ride :/

Today I am Thankful for: 

Timing: God's timing is always right.  I was nervous about things going on this trip and Butterball turkey was so good, and the trip went so well, I just know that our timing was right.  

Until Next Time...
