Disney Birthday {aka Favorite Vacation Moments}

Since I'm sure you're all sick to death of the amount of Disney I blog about, I'm going to combine my favorite pics from this trip, with Marissa's birthday, since my favorite pics ARE from that day.

And just a little FYI, I only took 256 pics this trip.
A record for me!

Shocking, I know!

We found this treat in the room the night we checked in. It was a perfect start to her birthday which was the next day.

Before going into breakfast at 1900 Park Fare we posed for this pic. I can't wait to hang it up, {{despite how dark my hair looks...}} At breakfast, Tigger made her day by signing "Happy Birthday" in her autograph book. When we made our reservations we told them about it being Marissa's birthday & they made sure she was celebrated "Disney Style". During breakfast they brought her this monster cupcake....guess it's a great pick-me-up for the long day ahead. Next we headed to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for the girls' make-overs. Marissa's sash was different from Gianna's & said "Birthday Princess".By the time we were done, it was time for lunch at Tony's Townsquare. After we ate they brought over a sundae for her & we sang "Happy Birthday". She loved it!When we headed outside, we watched the parade for a bit.Then we headed off to hit the rides! LOVE this shot of Gianna (in yellow) holding Joe's hand down "Main Street".Marissa wanted to drive we went on "Grand Prix". I helped her a bit (Joe rode with Gianna) & I am not looking forward to this girl driving. SCAREY!! Good thing she's got a few years to practice!

We hit the Teacups & as usual they all tried to make me toss my cookies.....stinkers! Joe & Gianna went off for Space Mountain & Marissa & I went on the Buzz Lightyear ride a few times.

Dinner was at Tony's again--what can I say? We LOVE it there!! How do you like my "bling" that Marissa asked for me to wear during her make-over?? I needed the extra "sparkle" apparently.
When we went back to the room Marissa was willing to pose for some pics before bed.
I still can't believe she's TEN!
Taken right before we left to go to the airport.
Feels like our home away from home.
Kinda. Sorta. ;)

I'm sure there are a few more pics that take my breath away but I'll try not to make this post any longer than it is. Besides gotta leave something for the next trip!! LOL!
