Disneyworld here we come

All the girls wore Mickey Mouse ears to Disneyworld – the night before we blinged the ears up with Swarovski hotfix crystals, and we all wore our special Katie’s Girls Tshirts.  We attracted much attention in our attire, and spent lots of time speaking to all sorts of people who stopped us to ask “Who’s Katie?” or “Who are Katie’s Girls?”.

Chris had a special Minnie skirt (red with white spots), and to top the outfit

off, had a pair of white bloomers decorated with a crystal Mickey head.  What a sight!

Our day at Disneyworld 9.4.2011

Well, we experienced Disneyworld on Saturday for Chris’ birthday.  What a day!!!

We arrived there at 10.00am and left at 11.30pm – the girls had a huge day out!

Cathy, Chris, Cheryl and Sue went on lots of rides – Splash Mountain, Rocky Mountain Train, teacups (Cathy and Cheryl), the cars.

Then all the girls experience Peter Pan’s ride, and It’s a Small Small World.

At the end of the day we watched the fabulous electric parade, then saw the fireworks, after both of which we were all gobsmacked, with very, very tired backs, feet, hips, heads, and everything else in between!

What an absolutely incredible day – of course, the day would not have been a stupendous day out without some serious shopping as well!

Our Big Day of Shopping in Orlando

Today was a sort of rest day, as we have had 2 very late nights (or early mornings).

We started off with a sleepin, then a swim in our pool, then went off to Ihop where we all enjoyed a great lunch.

Then off to the souvenir shop, then Walmart, where Chris (and all the rest of the girls) had a truly wonderful shopping experience!

Then back to our house for a birthday tea for Chris – with pizza, BBQ chicken, chocolate fudge cake.

Then as a surprise for Chris we had a pinatta, who was a green monster – there is a photo of Chris wacking the monster later.

In summary, a great day – Chris is now bejewelling everyone’s Mickey ears in readiness for our big day at Disneyworld tomorrow.

The Girls’ Ramblings

Today was the 3rd drive around this amazing upsize of everything!

From meals

 to cars

to people

 to buildings

We have toured lots of carparks and U-turns (at traffic lights – legal here), (accidentally of course), have met some amazing people. had beautiful weather, and have enjoyed not having to wash up or cook.

Have spent lots of money (what fun was that), (who cares – its our trip), and having fun doing it.

LOL

PS Watch out for Disneyworld on Saturday!

Look out in the coming couple of weeks for our posts about our trip coming direct from USA.
