House of Blues

We arrived first at the House of Blues for our Bachelor/ette Meal before going out to Pleasure Island and took some photos. Gav and I are huge Elvis fans and so this was the ideal place for us!











I go inside to check in and find Melissa and Robert, who already found my parents despite having no idea what they looked like! We went out to the patio to wait for the others. My sister wasn’t coming as she was coming to 8trax instead. My dad and Dave were babysitting and my mum and sister were coming out with me.

Anyway, we all chatted outside…



Eventually everyone arrived.

We all go in and they take us to the back of the restaurant. Gav sat with his family and I with my parents, Melissa (Skylarr) and Robert and we ordered our food…

Catfish nuggets!


My mum also had them and was surprised at how delicious they were!



For our entrees, Dad had the steak…



Robert was delighted with his!



So was Melissa! The conversation was so funny on our table but I cannot remember at all what it was about...!



Sam (Katrina’s and my friend) ended up perched on the end of our table.



I had the jambalaya which I could not finish ~ and so did Gav, behind me! I ended up with this… which we gave away!




Anyway, we were finishing up the meal and paying the bill, and I was saying goodbye to Melissa and Robert as they had their floral meeting at home the next day. On the way out I stop to take a photo of Gav’s parents.



And some strange statue:



Then they took one of us…







We walked through to PI and I waited for my penfriend (and bridesmaid) Andrea and her husband Michael who were coming for the evening, and my mum and sister. Andy and Michael turned up and later on my mum and sister, but in the meantime Gav went ahead into the adventurer’s club with his dad, brother in law, brother and his girlfriend.

We hung around outside before my mum and sister arrived:

August 4th, 2008 ~ Rehearsal Day!

The next morning we literally dragged ourselves out of bed despite my body telling me not to, and we showered, grabbed large dark glasses and headed to the Animal Kingdom for our rehearsal breakfast.





Our families were nearly all there waiting for us and we led the way into the Animal Kingdom.

Well, we arrive at the Tusker House and this was where we were due to meet our friends Steve and Sarah (I met Gav through working with Steve). They had flown out separately to everyone else and were staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort. So we arrive and I check in and then they creep up on us, and we were all hugging and I was just on top of the World.

We all had the group photo (I’ll scan this later) and it was huge! All 22 of us! We went into the Tusker House and my family got split onto two tables. My sister said it was fine and not to worry, they would be happy behind us, and Gav sat by me with my parents, Steve and Sarah.



My mum and dad!


Do you like my parents’ t-shirts? Made by my mum, she is such a good sport. She loved them! Dad was particulary proud of his as it said "Disney Father of the Bride".

The meal was delicious! I would come back here in a heartbeat ~ they even had apple and raspberry turnovers!

The Characters Arrive!

...Anyway....back to the breakfast at the time, my sister’s family, bless them ~ all squished up!



Donald Duck arrived and the kids were up like rockets!



…and so were we! I think I looked remarkably awake, given the way my tummy was feeling. I nibbled at everything….*sob* You see that Gavin and I are wearing matching shirts from Australia Zoo ~ we were sent them as gifts! Anyway, on the reverse it says Gavin, Disney Groom and Sara-Jayne, Disney Bride!


Hmm. nice pose!
Safari Mickey…





Daisy! Everyone piled in and Steve took the photo for us.



Goofy popped up next…





Donald came around again……





And Mickey posed again for us…

The Case of the Missing Photo, and a nice chat with a Tusker House CM...

We had a fantastic time and I was so happy that my family were enjoying themselves. At the end of the meal I asked where the group photo was and if it was available for purchase and the server told us that the “other table” had said it wasn’t wanted!

The server kindly disappeared and said it would be about 15 minutes to get another one printed and I thanked him profusely. We had a nice chat about crocodiles and reptiles (and Gav rolled his eyes, ha ha) and the time passed quickly. In the meantime of course, the others had run off at top speed to follow HM. I checked that he had told them about the groomsmen fitting that afternoon and the actual rehearsal and he promised his dad would remember.

We took a few snaps on the way out…



Me holding my poor, icky tummy.







It’s such a beautiful place, I was so glad I chose it or my family would not have visited it.





Everything seems so authentic…







Anyway, photo in my paws, we headed off back to the Yacht Club as Carolyn Allen’s were coming to fit the groomsmen…

NEXT UP: What IS that bell? Fire? FIRE!!!!!
