Oh how we've long awaited this movie's arrival.  Essie has said for months "we are gonna see dat movie in da summer".  And FINALLY it was time...we waited all week for Friday night.  When I picked up the princess from school I had a surprise for her...

The movie was great...and Essie has worn her BRAVE dress every day.

A new school and father's day...

Essie started a new school last week.  She's been on the waiting list for awhile and her spot finally opened up! She goes 3 days a week right now but will be full time once fall comes around.  It's a preschool center in a home that is run by an amazing husband and wife.  They've done this for 30ish years and have such an amazing reputation.   Essie cried every single day at her old school.  It was a good school, just not consistent with teachers, etc.  Well Essie has not cried once at her new school.  She loves it and drop off is a breeze.  I think that speaks volumes.  Anyway, last week they had a father's day brunch. They sang songs and gave daddies a card.  It was precious.  I am so thankful lil priss is finally at a place she feels comfortable!

Magic Kingdom...

We spent our last two days at the Magic Kingdom...it was truly magical.  Thursday we got soaked to the bone...like saturated wet so we took a break and went to the hotel to dry off.  That night we went back to watch the fireworks and parade.  What a special night that was!  I unfortunately don't have any pictures from that because our camera was stolen Friday afternoon...with all our pictures on it! Yes, our brand new SLR that we saved up for...just gone and we were devastated.  But we do have the posed pics from Photopass thankfully to share.  Magic Kingdom was by far our favorite and we spent the first day riding rides and meeting princesses! It was a dream come true for my girl to meet Rapunzel and Merida! Our second day we rode rides the whole day and left out around 8 p.m....without our camera of course. Ugh.

Our third day at Disney we went to Epcot...it was NOT our favorite park.  I think the girls were too young for most of it...also, it rained like crazy so everything kept shutting down.  Also with the way Epcot is set up, there was nowhere to hide to get out of the rain!  We did LOVE the new Brave playground...in fact they were shooting commericals for it while we were there! 

Our favorite parts of Epcot was getting to eat at Akershus with the Princesses...this was amazing to watch Essie's face the whole time. 

We also loved meeting Mulan. She was the most natural Princess we met...she took her time with the girls and made it so special.  Just look at that hug pic...melt me!

Hollywood Studios

Our second day in Disney, we went to Hollywood Studios.  I love this park...it's probably my 2nd favorite!  We rode some rides, watched some fabulous shows, and got rained on! 

We left that afternoon, took a quickk nap, and rode over to Ohana for our late night dinner reservations.  We LOVED O'hana...the food was amazing and the girls loved learning to hula and the coconut races.  We also go a fabulous view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks. It was truly a magical
