After our absolutely amazing meal and experience in the castle, it was time to move on to some more fun stuff!!! Our dinner reservations were so late that we had missed the first MSEP, so we stood behind the beautiful castle trying to decide what to do next. We asked Emma if she wanted to find a seat and watch Wishes, but she was ready for some rides!!!

We headed straight for fantasyland and hopped on Snow White's Scary Adventures without a wait at all. After that, we rode the teacups and then headed over to see what the wait time was for the Tomorrowland Speedway. The wait was only about 10 minutes, so we hopped in line to ride. This was Emma's first experience driving a go kart, and she loved it! She was a swell driver too. I really thought I was gonna get whiplash. It was so fun though! We giggled and had a great time, and even beat Daddy in the race!

After our turn on the discar, I mean, nascar circuit, we started toward Frontierland. It was almost time for the second showing of the MSEP, and we wanted to get some good seats! Daddy headed off for a souvenier bucket of popcorn and a coke, and Emma and I sat down to wait for the parade to start.

The parade was marvelous, as usual, and the popcorn was GREAT!

Next, we headed straight for another of Emma's favorite rides, Aladdin's Magic Carpets! She seriously loves this ride, and does everything she can to try to get me and Daddy spit on by that silly camel. She usually always succeeds, but we aluded the camel on this trip.

After our flight, we took a nighttime cruise on the Jungle Cruise, then rode the carpets again.

Since we were in the neighborhood, we decided it was time for another great treat. It was time for Dole Whips!!! YUM YUM YUM!

By this time, we were all starting to get pretty tired, but we pressed on. Besides, we still had a lot of time left. The park was going to be open until 3 am!

We took another couple of spins on the teacups, rode Dumbo a few times, and rode the Barnstormer 2 or 3 times too.

We were complete exhausted at this point, so we decided to start heading for the exit. We didn't make it until 3, but 1:45 was late enough! We made a pit stop in the Emporium to look around, then headed out and boarded a bus to get back to our resort.

When we finally got back and got into our jammies, we all melted into bed. We were tired! It was time for a good night's sleep, so we could get our fun on in Epcot the next morning!

Yep, it was definitely a late night! But SO much fun! We like Jungle Cruise at night too, it's so cool!

You HAVE to try a Dole Whip! DH likes the floats the best. Emma and I always share a pineapple or orange dole whip. They are super yummy!

I promise I have not abandoned my TR. I've had a lot going on the last few weeks, and haven't had a chance to get on here at all. I promise I'll be back soon with some more updates, and I'll fill you all in on the things going on with me now too. Thanks for hangin' 'round!

Good Morning everybody!!!

Let me just start out by saying how sorry I am to have been gone away for so long! It has just been crazy here, and I haven't had much time for anything lately.

Here are some updates for you on real life situations:

About three weeks ago, I was contacted by another company and offered a job. I have been so stressed over what to do, because I really love what I do. But, in the end, they made me an offer that I couldn't turn down. So, I put my notice in at work, and my last day with the bank will be July 2nd. I'll start my new job the very next day.

What's my new job you ask? Well...I will be going from being a personal banker, to working for Bobcat. Yep...you got it! I'm going to work for a company that sells construction equipment. LOL. Big change, huh? I'm actually going to be the office manager there, and will manage the employees in the branch, do payroll, and do all of the accounting work. To say that I am excited is an understatement. I can't wait!

I will no longer have to work on saturdays!!!! I'm not going to know what to do with myself! It will be Monday-Friday, and if I need to leave early for something, then it's not an issue, because my position is a salary position, not hourly. YAY for flexibility!!

Also, Emma had her dance recital last weekend, so last week was BUSY! They had practice on Monday and Tuesday, dress rehearsal on Wednesday, complete show run through on Thursday, and the shows were Friday night and Saturday night. I am STILL exhausted! LOL. Not only was Emma in the show, but my husband was too! Every year, the studio owner asks for some dad's to volunteer to do a dance in the show, and my husband (along with 9 others) volunteered this year. The dad's are always a spot in the show that offers comic relief, and this group did not disappoint!

She dubbed the guys the Dancin' Dads, and they did a routine that was a spin off of the video on you tube called The Evolution of Dance (you should watch it to get a good idea of what they did.) Soon, I will have a DVD of the show, so I'll be sure to post some videos soon. These guys were hilarious! I can't wait to be able to show it to you!

So...that's what's been going on with me. What's new with ya'll?
