A Princess for Waldo!!

As we walked over to Norway for our Akerhaus Princess Lunch, or what now affectionately call Yakerhaus Princess Lunch – we stopped at the restroom so I could transform Maddie to Her Royal Highness Princess Madison.

The others waited patiently and snapped a few shots around Norway.




I checked us in and Waldo kept pestering me about who was first and we were there before those people and they got in before we did. OMG, sometimes he’s worse than a little kid. I finally had to snap at him that we would get called when OUR table was ready.

Naturally, 2 seconds before they “announced” us, Waldo disappeared. The area in front of the restaurant is relatively small, but somehow he got away. I send out the search and recovery team and they brought him back within a few minutes. We’re really getting better at finding him these days. He generally wanders into food or candy shops and sure enough, we found him a the Kringle thingle bakery.

Finally our name was called and we were escorted to the photo line. Maddie was tickled pink to see Belle was the photo princess and she was dressed in her yellow gown as well. We sent the kids up for the picture, as the rest of us looked like wet dogs!

[CENTER]Evan, Belle, Maddie & Belle.



The photographer went beserk when he noticed Maddie’s Belle doll dressed up to match. He oohed and ahhhed and pointed her out to Belle who also oohed and ahhed. We went over to our table and perused the menu. We placed our food order and then the Princesses started parading in one by one.

First came Jasmine ...


We got a bonus! Cinderella!


Princess Aurora ... she seemed kinda off though.


Finally came Ariel ...

As soon as Ariel signed their autographs books and took the picture, she headed toward the next table. Well, not before Waldo jumped up and shouted "Take our picture!" Ariel practically ran over to Waldo and posed with him. And then she flirted with him. It was a riot. And Waldo, well Waldo loved it! He was grinning from ear to ear for the rest of the meal.


TE wasn't impressed. In fact she made a hilarious comment that I cannot repeat on the DIS, for fear of points.

There was a family of 6 sitting next to us, they had 4 little girls ranging from say 10ish to 3ish and when a Princess would show up at the table, the youngest would dive under the table and refuse to come out. It was a riot!

I spoke with V and she and Lauralee had been at the pool and were heading back to their rooms to get organized and such. Our original plan was to meet up at the pool, but Fay decided to muck that up, so we came up with Plan B. We would meet up at the Carriage House and figure it out from there. Waldo and Andy were heading to DTD and to Fuego’s Cigar Bar and had invited Tony to join them.

All I have to say about Yakerhaus is YUCK! It was soooo nasty and soooo overpriced. I would rather spend the money at CRT or even 1900 Park Faire if Maddie ever wanted to do a Princess meal again.

Maddie trying to get Evan to "look at the camera"



Me & Andy


Waldo (still grinning) & TE

We headed out with all intentions of exiting the park, but Waldo has spied some yummy treats at Kringla bakery, so we stopped there to get some things to-go. I remembered KatGarcia (shout out to the cuz!) mentioning how much she loves the School Bread, so I decided to try some. It looked super yummy and since I love coconut, I had Waldo get me a piece.

Finally ready to leave the park, we slowly walked toward the exit and felt the first signs of rain a-comin’. As soon as we got on the bus, it was complete down pour! The rain did not let up one tiniest bit. As we arrived at the Grandstand bus stop, we jumped off and under cover. Within a few minutes, the rain had subsided, so we made a mad dash for our building. Waldo, thinking he had outsmarted us, headed for the 1st yellow building he saw. Too bad it was the wrong yellow building!

We got to the room and dried off. I called LL & V to see what the plan was, only to find out Tony wimped out (LY, Tony!) because he didn’t want to get caught in the rain. The girls were heading to AP for dinner, so Waldo and Andy decided to walk me down and then they could catch the boat to DTD.

I was anxious to get down there, I hadn’t see my friends in almost a year, and I was busting at the seams. We finally made it down, and as we entered AP, I heard V yell out “HEY, T!” I did my infamous stroller run/walk and gave her a BIG old hug and then it was LL’s turn! Boy, I missed them! But let me tell you, we just picked up where we left off last August. I still get verklempt when I think about it. These ladies have become such a huge part of my life, and I couldn’t wait to sit and catch up. With out the boys.

They finished their meal and we finished our snack ( I knew I needed something in my stomach, as I had an idea the evening would entail booze! ) and that's when Waldo and Andy started ribbing Tony about bailing out (no pun intended) on boys night out. Tony decided it he was in if they were in. Secretly I had hoped Tony would start talking about DVC and really seal the deal for me.

DIS-friends!



The boys left and the 3 of us took the kids over to the area near the Turf Club. They have a bar and couches, table & chairs, a pool table, etc. It’s very homey in there. The kids played on the carpet, and LL, V and I sat at a table, ordered a couple of drinks and chatted about everything and anything. And then we pulled out our Flat Friends, Jen and Michelle! Those party animals!



Leo & Maddie dancing!


Evan challenging Miss V to "Rock, Paper, Scissors" - this was a RIOT to watch!

It’s funny, because in all honesty, our children are very different. But they got along famously – they are all very sweet and very kind and really enjoyed each others company. As did their momma’s.

<INSERT PHOTO OF THE MOM'S>

Yup, you guessed it, I don't have a picture of the 3 of us!

The rain was really coming down and it got late, so we decided to call it a night. We had AK rope drop tomorrow and as much as I love my girls, I do have to keep my AIS time. But first we had to stop at the gift shop to get some poncho’s. Dude. I hate the smell of the WDW ponchos. They’re so gross, and I get clausterphobic in them. As we head out, wouldn’t you know the freakin’ rain stopped! GRRRRR!

We said good-bye to V, as she was in a different section and then LL and I said good-bye as I headed to my part of the Grandstand and she to hers. I got into my room, and decided I should eat something to soak up the Devil’s juice I had. It was after 11pm, and I had planned to just toss the kids in bed, but Maddie’s hair was bothering her, so I took the crown off, then the pins, then the rubber bands, then the Mickey hair clip. Her head was like a freakin’ clown car, pins just kept coming out!

When I finally got it all down, her hair was still up, but the very top was hanging over. She looked like she had a mushroom cloud on her head. We both couldn’t stop laughing – well, the devil’s juice didn’t help, but it was still funny. I had to bathe her, so Evan decided he should bathe, too. I put them in bed, and jumped in myself. I texted Andy to find out where they were and they too were heading back.

I went to sleep and then I woke up around 3am with the worse stomach ache ever! I was doubled over in pain and then I felt it. That yucky feeling in your throat right before you blow. I won’t go into details, but let me just say, Champagne Mojito’s and School Bread DON’T MIX!

The alarm went off at 6:45 am and….

To be continued ....
