ODS Girls Day ~Parade Day

Finally, the morning we've been waiting for.  Months and months of baby girl and her friends spending their Saturday at the dance studio practicing.  It is finally time to show what they've learned and they will be doing it down Main Street U.S.A!! So exciting!!

Not sure who's more excited.....me?  or baby girl?  LOL!!! Either way, we are all excited!

So I had to help her get dressed and get her makeup done before breakfast.

Then we went down to meet everyone and have breakfast together.

After breakfast, there was a quick group picture and then they were off to catch their bus.  Parents were on their own, so we took our car and headed over to Magic Kingdom.

Once we got there, we quickly found the group of ODS parents - everyone wearing their ODS Royal Blue shirts!  We were ready to cheer on our girls!!

We see the parade coming and it was such a wonderful surprise to see that our girls were the ones to open and lead the parade!! It was amazing and they performed like true professionals.  All the girls did and amazing job.

After the parade ended and we gathered all our girls, it was time to start enjoying the rides.  On this day we planned for my daughter and her 3 friends (The Fantastic 4) to spend the day riding as many rides as they could together!!  Us moms tried our best to get all the fast passes at the same time, and I think we did great at getting this done.

After several hours and several rides, everyone was really tired and cranky, so we decided to go back to the hotel to eat dinner and go swimming.

We ate at the hotel, the other girls went to a restaurant with their families.  After we ate and rested a bit, I went with baby girl to the pool.  There she met up with another girl from her dance class and they played for a little while.

We were at the pool for about an hour, and then I was ready to call it a night.  We did have another early wake up call the next morning for the stage performance at Epcot so I really needed to sleep!

Hope you enjoy the pictures and video!!
