Oh Trentmom ~
I am sorry, I forgot that you were leaving so soon. Did you notice when I started this thing???? I have practically been on a posting spree lately. But I will try to post a new chapter (or two) on Monday before you leave.

Patience.

Please.

Or, in the alternative, at least you will then have stuff to read when you get back, right??? (Plus your own trippie to post at that point!!!)

Birthday Cake? I WANT CHOCOLATE CHIPS.

Thanks Melly for the bump. I would return the favor but I don't want to catch anything.

So, we wandered out of the world, eating our FREE ice cream and enjoying the magic. We headed back to the resort and got a FEW minutes of rest in before changing and heading to Park Fare. Chosen especially for NoFear's fourth birthday dinner.

I had done it right. Ordered birthday cake. Made her a new Cinderella dress. Made sure it was noted on the reservation. WHOLE NINE YARDS.

We decided to drive to the Grand Floridian and explore that strange and new world of VALET PARKING. We live in South Georgia. The tallest building in our town is all of four stories. And both my husband and I are poor government workers. We don't valet. Shoot. We barely manage to wear shoes every day. So this was something. Embarrassing. Because I didn't think about the carpload of carp we had in our van. That we ALWAYS have in our van. I just don't understand people who have both small children and clean cars. They're just not right. Somehow.

So, I cringed as I watched B hand over the keys to my van. That I love. Carp and all. And I thought about Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but decided that those valets didn't look like they wanted to go joyriding in the Silver Bullet. So I let my embarrassment go (it wasn't like I was every going to see them again after tonight) and instead looked forward to checking out the Grand Floridian. Which, by the way, is absolutely beautiful. The lobby is breathtaking, and very much like hat I imagine all fancy victorian-style hotels should look.

We found our way to the check-in desk, and while I gave our names and double-checked on the cake, they made sure that Goofy called NoFear for her birthday:



Fairy Godmother was in the lobby and made quite a fuss. She and NoFear shared a fairly lengthy conversation (we were the only ones out there).



Dinner was delish. I really liked the much-maligned strawberry puree. MMM, dessert first course! Otherwise, I found the whole buffet character meal stress the same as always. B does not have any angst about these. He goes, gets his food, and eats. I, on the other hand, check to make sure there is no character near. Go QUICKLY, and get the kids food. Rush back, get them started eating, again check to make sure no character is near, and if there is, wait for them to come. Cut up whatever needs to be cut up for the kids. See what else they need. Rush to the buffet, grab myself a plate and whatever it was they needed. Go back to the table, give the kids most of the contents of my plate, look around again for characters . . . and so on. By this point B is on his third plate and declaring this a really relaxing meal.

Ahem.

Sorry about that.

And we saw all the usual characters. Suzy, Perla, Cindy and Prince Charming. But sadly, no Flower's Child.

Cindy was about the prettiest princess I had ever seen:



And, as is/was his custom, the Shrimp decided that SHE was A-OK.



ANYWHO. We had a good time. And. At the end, they brought the cake I had ordered for the birthday princess. They brought it out with a birthday crown. She dug the crown.





But she didn't really dig the cake. Because there were CHOCOLATE CHIPS on the dessert table. She ate chocolate chips. I had her cake wrapped up to go.

At some point prior to the meal, it was discussed whether any of us would return to the Magic Kingdom, which was staying open late that night. We knew we didn't want to take the Shrimp back, and Grammy and NeatKid volunteered to take him back to the villa that night (via Disney transportation) and let us take NoFear out for more birthday fun! So, after we finished up with dinner, we got her changed into shorts and t-shirt, and we all boarded the monorail. We all got off and we escorted them to the correct bus stop, then B, NoFear and myself headed back to the MK for fun!

We immediately took the train to Frontierland and rode Splash, then BTMRR. As we finished BTMRR, there was no one in line so we took a second bonus ride without getting off!! NoFear thought that was the greatest thing EVER. She also still had her birthday button on. We could have gone a third time, but B's tummy couldn't take it. We got off and caught the tail end of Spectro, then headed to Fantasyland and rode SnowWhite and Peter Pan. We also then watched Wishes from right beside Dumbo. I had never seen the show from back there, so it was a little strange having some stuff go off in front and some behind, but we certainly felt immersed in the show! After the fireworks we wandered out of the park (with the rest of humanity) and took the monorail back to the GF, retrieved our van from valet, and headed back to the villa. NoFear was asleep before we got out of the parking lot. But what a birthday it had been!

Looks like Nofear had a great birthday. The cake looked awsome.

Loved that you had the kids wearing the same colours for dinner. Hope you got a picture of the two together.

Nice that you got to spend time with Nofear alone on her birthday too. She must have felt so loved that night.

Amy, I love it! The pictures are so precious. BORG on the dinner buffet character relaxation thing. Ugh. It's better now that 2 out of 3 of mine can cut their own food for the most part.

And I LOVE that you and B got some time with just the bday girl over at MK. That is specially magical!

Hey Georgia.

I got back late last night....Thanks for having something for me to read.

Your DD looked beautiful in her Cindi Costume and yes that was a pretty Cinderella.

I hear ya about the stress of the character meals.

The meal at LTT in the beginning of the week was awesome...DH hugged Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Chip and Dale.

We saw them later in the trip at Garden Grill, was hiding and was getting upset almost the whole time.

Kids can be so unpredictable....

That was nice you got some special alone time with your DD for her bday.

Sounds like a great Bday and great day in all!!!
