Strawberries & Cinderella

Wow!!  I hadn't intended to take almost a week off from blogging but I sure have enjoyed my little break.  I've been spending a lot of time this week playing with the kids and getting ready for my daughter's 3rd birthday party tomorrow.  

Tomorrow I'll have a card to share with you but today I wanted to share a few photo's from last weekend.   We visited a local farm to pick fresh strawberries for Brooke's Strawberry Shortcake birthday party.  She had fallen asleep in the car so she was still sleepy and groggy when we got to the farm.  After about 5 minutes she told her daddy, "my legs are broken" which is code for "I don't want to walk".  Smart girl...at least she knows exactly what to say to get her way, I mean who can walk with broken legs?  LOL   Nathan however loved every minute of it and was on a mission to pick the biggest strawberries he could find.  We now have more strawberries than I know what to do with!!  Most I'm dipping in chocolate for Brooke's birthday party tomorrow, but the rest I'm going to have to freeze and use in pancakes, muffins and cakes.

The next morning we headed over to the Magic Kingdom and enjoyed a few rides before it was time to have lunch with Cinderella in her castle along with the other Disney Princesses.  Brooke was so excited to meet them all in person.  Cinderella greeted us in the castle's foyer and had a sweet chat with little Princess Brooke and gave her a magical wand and a Wishing Star.  Being that Nathan was a prince he was given a sword...which he later tried to slay us all with and it had to be taken away.   LOL  While we were eating, each of the princesses came over to our table and had conversations with Brooke and had their pictures taken with her.  Poor Brookie was stuck completely mute!!!  Two seconds before they would arrive at our table she would be squealing and bouncing in her seat..."here comes Belle, here comes Belle!!" but once they arrived at our table all she could manage was to shake her head yes or no.  LOL  After lunch we hopped over to Epcot where we spend the rest of the day enjoying their Flower and Garden festival.  It was a one of my most favorite family weekends EVER!!  :)






Thanks so much for stopping by!

What a wonderful weekend, Wendy! I wish we lived there! All of our local strawberry farms have closed, it's just too hard to keep the plants alive. Plus to live so close to Disney would be a dream!

Happy Birthday to your daughter, I hope she has a great party!
