Happy Birthday to ME

My birthday was last Friday and to celebrate, my girlfriend and I, (and all 4 of our kids), loaded up and headed to our favorite place - DISNEY.  This is the same girlfriend that I went with back in May for her daughter's birthday.  The hubby was in watermelons so he couldn't/didn't want to go and my friend's husband works out of town, so it was just us!

We arrived at our hotel on Friday morning and were able to check-in right away (YAY!).   We immediately put our luggage down, packed a few snacks and headed to the Magic Kingdom.  We had a certain sweet little girl that was begging to ride Dumbo, so that's the first thing we did.  

Considering it was JUNE in FLORIDA, and HOT as the blue blazes, the kids did really well.  And really, I've lived here all my life.  I think it was about 89 on Friday with a heat index of maybe mid 90s or so?  Maybe even 100?  Either way, I know it could have been much worse.

We rode a few rides, and visited a few gift shops, where Chip and Dale made an appearance! HA!

 For my birthday dinner, all I really wanted was to eat at Trail's End Restaurant.  They have a "comfort food" buffet and because all of us really get tired of park-food, we love to eat there.  They have lots of games for the kids to play before being seated--hula hoops, horseshoes, a playground, checkers, etc.  It's really really neat!

 Our gang told the waiter it was my birthday and at the end of our meal, he brought me out a strawberry shortcake, and had the dining area shout Happy Birthday...it was a little embarrassing, but oh well--all in good fun!

 When we travel together, we get adjoining rooms because our kids love to go back and forth between the rooms in the evenings and early mornings.  They just have a blast together and are SO well behaved.  This is my oldest and my friend's youngest one night watching a show on TV.  IT WAS SO CUTE!!

Saturday morning dawned bright and early and we hopped on a bus to head to Epcot!  The kids each had something they wanted to ride and were so excited!

We had a great day at Epcot Saturday and then headed home in the early afternoon.  What a great birthday trip to Disney we all had!
