Hello friends! Well we are at Walt Disney here in Orlando for a few days hanging with our family and celebrating our niece’s 3rd birthday. Well it is not really her birthday just yet – it’s later this month. But this was the one time our whole family was able to be together so we are celebrating it earlier. Which is fine with her as she gets a few more presents and cupcakes!
Gary and I (lori) started our day at 3am to make the drive down to Orlando.
Juice first thing to get be going. Enjoyed a BluePrint Cleanse green juice that I got from Whole Foods. It was pretty good. Different but decent. It has been a long time since I have had celery so I think that taste was throwing it off for me. Michelle and I are not big celery fans.
Enjoyed half of my protein plantain bread.
Perfect traveling meal for me.
Finally made it to a Starbucks in GA off I-95. Much needed!!!
Later it was kombucha time. I also sipped on a coconut water that I did not take a picture of.
Michelle’s breakfast was 2 bananas, hard boiled egg and coffee.
We made it!
Even through the 4+ of driving during the rain!!! We survived. We were so happy to arrive at Disney.
I am not a big fan of driving in the rain especially long distance. Saw some crazy accidents.
Crazy weather yesterday in Florida!
Gary and I finally arrived at the resort to meet-up with the rest of the family. Saved half my protein plantains for Michelle and I to have at lunch with a little mahi mahi (from the disney resort) and leftover veggies from my house.
We both hugged our loved ones for our #PFChallenge! Did you?
We played by the pool once the rain stopped then it was time to get ready for dinner and gift time.
After the gifts were open it was time for cupcakes! Michelle ordered a lot of gluten-free vegan cupcakes from BabyCakes here at their Orlando store.
We ordered the cupcakes and had them delivered to our hotel but the cupcakes ended up getting lost. Not sure how you could loose 24 cupcakes but it happened. Luckily they eventually found them and had them sent to our room.
12 chocolate and 12 vanilla!
Delicious. The vanilla ones were a tad dry but the chocolate ones were perfect.
She loves her cupcakes!
Love her little pink dress too!
Then there was a surprise gift for all of us girls from our parents.
We each got rings that are from 4 family generations that our mom had.
In love with them!
Beautiful and so honored to be able to wear something with such family history!
We each enjoyed one glass of wine before heading to dinner.
Joy keeps everyone very entertained
My plate (lori) was veggies with ribeye. I got mine cooked medium and it was perfect. Hit the spot for me.
Michelle’s plate: veggies with pork tenderloin with pork belly. She said it was good but different. Not sure if she would get it again or not. But enjoyed trying something different.
It was a LONG day but sooo worth it in the end We love being able to spend time with our family. And love going to Disney.
We hit the bed early as we have all been up really early and have a busy Friday! We hope you are having a magical day!
Twins question: Do you like driving in the rain? Do you like driving long distance? What is the longest you have driven in the rain before? Have you ever ordered something to be delivered to a hotel and they lose it?
What do you like to do with your family? Do you go on family vacations? Did you hug a loved one yesterday?
till next time,
