Family & ODS Showcase

So it is Wednesday morning....these days are going a bit too fast for me, but sadly that is always the case when we are having fun!
Today there is more make-up and hair to do but baby girl had to wear her black leotard with ODS T-shirt and black Tights.  We went down to eat breakfast with all the other girls and then headed to our car, while baby girl wanted to ride on the bus with everyone else.  We all arrived at Epcot and first thing to be done was a group picture taken by Disney photographers! 

Took a bit of time to get everyone together but they did it!! Then they were off to the theater, while hubby and I stayed behind waiting for my parents and niece to arrive.  They arrived about 15 minutes later, so we stopped at Starbucks for my iced coffee and headed over to the theater.  

We were early, our girls were performing in the second show but since it was so hot out, we went in and watched all the performers during the first show.  Once that was over, we moved to get better seats and then it was showtime!  Of course, our group was towards the end, but it was fantastic!! The show involved so girls from different levels so all ages performed.  It was the most beautiful performance I had ever seen out of this school.  Absolutely amazing!  

So after the show was over we went to eat lunch.  

Once we were done eating we walked around a bit but nobody knew what they wanted to do, my niece didn't like to ride much and it was really hot, so we went back to the hotel for some fun at the pool!

We just relaxed at the pool, I had a drink (or 2) and just watched the girls have their fun!  Later that night we went out for dinner and called it a night!

It's been a very busy & hectic trip so far, and even though I enjoyed every second, I was looking forward to a more relaxed day. 

This trip report is going to be in several posts, so here you will find links to everything:

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
