The everyday little things that make our life perfect.

We've had such a fun week!

One of our supplier thought it would be a good
idea to package their brochures with this turquoise paper
 that had been shredded and crinkled.

Hannah was acting very bored that day
so I showed her how she could make a person with crazy hair.

Sixteen people and two hours later, the boredom whining had disappeared!

It is just about time to start our countdown
 to our next Disney adventure!

We headed to the zoo on Wednesday.
We were all starting to get a little stir crazy.

We went first thing in the morning before it got too hot.
Schools had just started this week so nobody was there.
It was great!

Hanging out in the Wells Fargo stagecoach.
Watching the sharks with Daddy.

Hannah loves to take pictures with her iTouch.
When we head to to zoo, she takes a photo of
every single animal we see.

There is a little toddler/ preschool area (in air conditioning) that we
have never been in because it is usually too crowded.

Hannah had a blast climbing up in the silo and playing the games.

Have a great week!

We've had a lazy week since getting home from Kansas.
It is too hot to get out and do much of anything right now.

I couldn't resist this picture leaving our hotel on Sunday.
Princess suitcase, Ariel backpack, baby Ariel in her arms...
she is all set.

(Can I tell you how much I love that she is
able to carry her own gear now?!)

We stopped at Cracker Barrel for dinner on the way home.
Hannah decided she needed to test one
of the many rocking chairs on the porch.

Movie night...
Princess spaghetti for dinner,
then watched Cinderella with her own Prince Charming
So sweet!

Have a great weekend!

Under the Sea

Last Friday, we headed up to Wichita, Kansas.  Disney recently closed its run of Disney's The Little Mermaid on Broadway.  We were so disappointed to hear that since we saw the show in Denver about four years ago when it was being previewed prior to opening in New York.  We loved it then and couldn't wait to see it again!

We found out that Disney was doing a couple of regional tests of the show to see if it would fare well as a National Tour and one was being done in Wichita.  Not only was it just five hours away, but this particular theater was putting on one performance where three and four year olds could attend.  And the theater is attached to a Grand Hyatt that gives us super rates as travel agents.  How could we not go?

We had a great weekend!  Hannah loved the show.  We knew she would.  Not only does she love Ariel, but she is already a huge musical theater fan.  She was so blown away that a little kid played the part of Flounder and went around singing, "She's in love" (song written for the musical) for the rest of the afternoon.

We made it an all-Ariel weekend... Ariel pajamas, Ariel doll, Ariel backpack, etc.

These pics are from the theater's page...
Hannah thought it was so funny that the jellyfish looked liked umbrellas.

"Kiss the Girl"

Ariel and Scuttle

Hannah decided that we needed to order ice cream from room service.
(I think she may have had some help from Daddy!)

Just a couple of pictures this week.  Disney released a huge special that has kept us busy most of the week.  We did send Daddy away one evening to work so Hannah and I did get to sneak in a little bit of fun, girl time.

Hannah picked mac 'n' cheese for dinner and we watched the Princess and the Frog.

We sewed.

And we painted toe nails.

Have you tried these yet?  Sally Salon Effects.  They are basically stickers that work like nail polish.  They come in a ton of fun colors and designs.  Hannah loves to have her toes painted so I thought she would love these.  I picked out the hippie flower design for her to try and she hasn't stopped talking about them.  Not exactly made for tiny toenails but we got them to work.  They are super cute!

 Have a great week!
