    I had no idea BBB was that big. I guess I imagined it to be like 5 or 6 chairs in there. It looks like everyone was having a good time.

    I remember that picture of Claire with Tinkerbell. I love that one.

    I don't know if you remember but I told you before I don't know how you can plan a vacation with such short notice (not the trip for this tr but others you've done). Well now I know. My mom called me on Thursday to tell me she was giving me a surprise trip for my birthday this month for just River and I. We leave on the 27th:banana: I was so surprised I thought it might actually be a couple years before we got back!

    It is kind of small, but bigger than that. Maybe 12 chairs?
    It can be done ...when you put your mind to it. It's not always ideal, but in some ways kind of fun to put together. How exciting you get to go so soon. Does your Mom want to take Claire and I too? ;)
    You'll have a good time and sometimes doing things differently is a fun experience too.

    We'll be staying at All Star Sports this time because its the cheapest. I'm going to miss Pop but River said he wants to try Sports also.

    About 1 hour after my mom called me I had the room booked. I got all the dining reservations I wanted. I even got River an appointment at the Harmony Barber shop and at Pirates League. I was sure there would be nothing available because its so close to the 4th of July.

    I know we'll have a great time. It will be our first trip with just the 2 of us.

    Thats awesome. Glad you got it all booked plus a few extras. I have gotten things last minute too and it surprises me at times.

    Getting close to the reveal. It’s so exhausting. It must be, because I think every year I have a yawning picture of Claire too.

    A little bit of primping before the big moment.

    [​IMG]

    Abby was hilarious. Gail would pull the shield away and she would push it back to her face.

    [​IMG]

    At one point in time she pushed a little too hard and it went flying and crashed to the floor and broke. The Fairy Godmothers in training said not to worry as they had this happen about once a day.

    We got a good laugh at how she would steam this baby up.

    [​IMG]

    And now for the big reveal number 1.

    [​IMG]

    I always crack up at these too because the kids always have a weird look on their faces. I think it’s because they look so different. It takes them a minute to see it and then the smiles come out.

    See Aunt Mary clapping in the background. That’s something our family does about all sorts of things. Skip used to laugh about how we clapped for every little thing and now if we don’t clap he wonders what is wrong.

    Now Abby is close to being done. I can’t believe we made it this far. She got a sprinkling of pixie dust.

    Getting her primped up with her sash.

    [​IMG]

    She’s impressed with it.

    Back to Claire before Abby’s big reveal.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Alexis had to be sure they were doing everything right for Claire.

    [​IMG]

    Abby, are you ready to see yourself as a princess.

    [​IMG]

    She was feeling a little shy about this.

    [​IMG]

    And when she turned around, it kind of took her a minute to see herself.

    [​IMG]

    She did look VERY different and at first I don’t think she really knew it was her.

    I’m not so sure about this.

    [​IMG]

    Hmmmm, maybe it’s not so bad.

    Now when you get a bag of goodies at the end ……. that makes it all worth it.

    [​IMG]

    And a backpack too!

    [​IMG]

    It can’t get any better.

    [​IMG]

    Claire was the final one to be transformed into a beauty.

    Abby looks positively angelic all dressed up as a princess. I know you won't like to hear this, but Claire looks so grown up in the reveal photos.

    I love that they are loving their makeovers! The three of them look so cute! I know how much you love the "bubble hair" lol. I do like the red though. Abby is a trip walking around with that bag! I love that the give a gift that can actually be somewhat useful!

    so, I'm probably gonna "quote reply" a lot until I catch up, SORRY!:flower3:

    I'm glad you had a great Sail Away party time! Looks like it was a fun party.

    Kadence liked seeing the pools and slides. She thinks Claire is quite brave to go on the Aqua Duck.

    How nice your sister got you a gift for all that you did to get the trip together. You did good!

    Hey Carey!! I see you are updating too. I'll have to get over and read.

    She was so sweet looking. She was such a little munchkin and she looked adorable.

    Thanks. They did look so cute. And most importantly, they liked how they looked.
