Our last day at Disney!

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique...so brilliant. Such a highlight of the trip. We did the one in Downtown Disney, and watching her sweet during the process made it worth every penny. Also, we got some really good laughs over the fact that she very confidently picked corn rows as her hair-do. :) 

 Lyla and her super sweet Fairy Godmother :)










 Since Lyla was all dolled up as Cinderalla, we thought it was only appropriate to go have dinner with Cinderella, Prince Charming, the Stepmother, and Stepsisters. We ate at 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian Resort, and the food was delicious! This was one of our most fun, favorite meals. 

 (she was really nervous to meet Prince Charming. When I asked her why she said, "I'm just afraid he's going to want to marry me.") ;) 


 (the stepsisters were her favorite!)


After dinner, we took a boat ride over to Magic Kingdom and got the classic picture at the entrance. Then we went to Story Time with Belle and Lyla was chosen to play Felipe, the horse. So cute! \

We ended the night with the fireworks show and it was truly amazing!! At one point, Tinkerbell flies out of the castle and over the crowd and Lyla grabbed John David's face and so excitedly said, "This is my dream!!" It really was the perfect way to end our vacation. 






As we were leaving the park, Lyla asked me to please take her picture with this Indian Chief. Ha! 
A wonderful Disney Vacation indeed!! We were all worn out, and honestly I'm not sure I could have done another day. We packed it in, and had a blast. Thankful for the special time spent with just John David and Lyla. And I know Lowen got spoiled rotten herself at Jan Jan and Pops. :) 

Disney World Day 3!

Day 3 was my favorite day! We spent the first half of the day at Animal Kingdom. We ate a huge brunch at Tusker House with Daisy, Donald, Mickey, and Goofy. We went on the Animal Safari which was amazing!! I truly felt like we were in Africa! We also watched the Finding Nemo Musical and it was amazing!! So creative and well done. Loved every second. And then we ended our time at Animal Kingdom with Lyla getting her face painted. She took this very seriously. :) I honestly thought for a second that she fell asleep in the middle of it, she was so still.


















We then headed to Hollywood Studios. It started raining right when we got there, but only lasted about 10 minutes...just enough time for us to duck in a gift shop and buy some over-priced popcorn. :) The rain let up just in time for us to head over to the Beauty and the Beast Play. This is something that Lyla really wanted to see, and it was wonderful as well. After the play, we headed over to Animation Town which was Lyla's favorite part of the whole trip I think! She got to meet Sophia the First and Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. She was honestly more giddy and star-struck to meet them than any of the princesses! We watched the Disney Jr. show, which Lyla LOVED because it was all her favorite shows she watches on TV. She giggled and danced the whole time. We also got to see the Little Mermaid show, which was super cute as well. So, basically this day was my favorite because we got to see lots of shows and musicals, which make me happy. :) 





We ended the day with dinner at the 50's Prime Time Cafe. This was some of the YUMMIEST food we had all week, and it's so cute! You literally feel like you've transported to the 50's and the waiters and waitresses pretend to be your mom and dad. She made Lyla set the table, which she loved. It was a super fun night to end a great day!
