Just squeaked in here with my Wide-angle Wednesday! I have an excuse though, I was actually taking photos all day.
After getting my run done this morning, I came home and decorated. I'm a little crazy about celebrating Disney when we are counting down to a trip. We do "Disney Days" that are usually themed around a movie or ride. Since the trip will be a Princess trip, just me, Savannah, and her friend Eleanor (who has never been to WDW!!), I wanted to do something big for our 100 days. I decided that the best way to do this was to collect 100 things that represent rides/Disney/magic and put them on the table. Let me tell you, this was harder than I thought! It took me a few days just to make the list and I wanted to purchase really only food items, so I had to find all the things myself.
*funny side note: Savannah walked in, looked up at the 100 that I tried to write with sharpie on the balloons, and said, "WHAT are THOSE?!?!?"...apparently she didn't see the 1 and just the two balloons with 0's on them...ahem...guess I don't do zero's very well. LOL
If this makes no sense, basically each thing represents something Disney: Rubix cube for Pop Century, oranges for Soarin', a globe for World Showcase, matching t-shirts, fastpasses, rubber bracelets to represent Magicbands, our countdown chain, beach towel...you get the idea! It was fun and I printed out a list so the girls could try to find everything. It was like a table scavenger hunt and they had fun finding everything.
Naturally there has to be themed food as well, so I picked some easy things like goldfish (Nemo), and animal crackers (Safari), but decided the big food item should be one of Savannah's favorites. The first trip we ever made with friends, we went to DTD and ate our first dinner at Rainforest Cafe. I know you can find them around the US, but Savannah had never been to one outside of WDW (still hasn't) and she was blown away. My friend ordered a VOLCANO for dessert and I think her head nearly exploded. Ever since then she insists that we go to RFC on our first night and get a VOLCANO! so I decided to try my hand at it...
Pretty impressive, right? The girls dug in but they barely put a dent in it before they were stuffed. Those are stuffed faces. LOL
Then they pulled out the maps that I had on the table and Savannah started showing Eleanor each of the parks. After they spent some time doing that, they had to get ready because it was time for more photos. Eleanor has never had a photo shoot, so I told her I would do a mini-one for her. It was chilly out, but she braved it and was a trooper, even got up in a tree! Shots came out great, she loves them.
So there you have it! Tons of wide-angle Wednesday, so much that it took me until nearly 9pm to post them!
Do you ever do anything special to count down to a Disney trip or a race?
