Beach Trip!

I got to go on a "girls trip" to the beach. We went and stayed at Mrs. Emily's family's beach house in Saint George Island, Florida. It was wonderful! The weather was perfect. There was a big group of girls from Emily's family also staying there. There was a total of 9 girls and Mr. Essig. We had an absolute blast!

Baby Ellie enjoying my chair

We really didn't cooperate too much for pictures. We wouldn't both look at the camera and smile and the same time.

When the mommies joined in, we really wouldn't look at the camera

Ellie's little bitty feet in the sand. So cute!!

"Surfing" with Mr. Essig

Making sand angels with Kate

Not sure what I am doing here


Some of us went crab hunting one night. It was fun, but I was scared of some of the bigger crabs.

Dance Observation

Mommy got to go to my dance class and see how much we have learned. We also got our costumes, which I love!

Our ballet costume

Me and my friends Ella, Claire, and Caroline

Here are a couple of videos of what I know so far of my dance.

Disney Day 1

Disney was amazing!!!! Here is the day by day details of my trip. Lolli and Pop, thank you so much for this wonderful and memorable experience! Love you! Mommy said she still hasn't gotten the pictures that Lolli took and may add some to these later, so check back to see if any of these post are updated with more pics. Oh and she said to excuse some of the quality of the pics that were taken with her phone.


Me and Mommy taking a picture of Mickey in our hotel

I was so excited when we arrived

After waking up from my nap, we went straight to the Magic Kingdom to see Cinderella's Castle!

Me pointing out the castle to Daddy

The beautiful castle!

Me and Daddy in front of the Castle

The first ride we went on was the Mad Hatter's Tea Party tea cups. I had fun, Mommy got a little dizzy.

We also had to go on the classic, It's a Small World

Me and Mommy got our picture taken inside of Cinderella's Castle

I also got to meet my first princess and get my first autograph in my book. It was of course my favorite, Rapunzel!!!

They did a neat light show on the castle

We had a great first day and finished it with the incredible fireworks show!

I was exhausted

Disney Day 2- Universal Studios

We went to Universal Studios on the 2nd day. It was a little cold that day, which I am sure people who go there in the crazy heat of the summer would not be happy about me complaining about the cold. We had a great time. Mommy and Daddy said that may have been their favorite of the the parks.

Me and the guys in front of the Universal ball

I got to meet Dora and Diego

and Curious George. We also went to his town. There was a great Woody Woodpecker kids roller coaster in this area too. I think I rode it 3 or 4 times. We also rode the E.T. ride, which scared me a little bit.

Loved Dr. Seuss world and all the rides there.


We all loved the Harry Potter section and got some yummy fudge there. Mommy and Brent went on the big roller coaster and said it was great.

Hogwarts Castle was so neat!

In front of the Simpson's ride

Mommy, Daddy, Lolli, and Brent rode some other big rides and said that The Mummy and The Simpson's rides were great. I stayed and played with Pop. We also all saw the Shrek 4-D movie which was funny and the Twister ride which was a little scary but neat. Fun day!

Disney day 3- Animal Kindom and Hollywood Studios

Day 3 started at Animal Kingdom with a Safari!

Pop got me my own pin trading necklace and pins. The idea is to trade pins with characters and workers, but I liked my pins too much to give any of them away.

Very neat tree that we actually got to go in and watch A Bug's Life Show in 4D

We had a very yummy character breakfast at Tusker House in Animal Kingdom. Donald welcomed us.

I dressed up as Minnie Mouse for our meal.

Daisy was there

So was Mickey. He gave me a bunch of kisses since I was dressed up like his girlfriend.

Goofy was also there and got us all to dance around the restaurant with instruments.

Very happy walking with Lolli and Pop after our meal. We then went and saw the Lion King show.

After the show we go to meet Minnie!! She liked my outfit.

We then went on to Hollywood Studios. We got there in time for the parade and I got to take my own pictures.

Love Boo

Thought the dancing dog was so funny.

Great Toy Story float

We saw the Little Mermaid 3D show. I just loved all the shows and all my cool classes.

We then got to meet some more characters like Pooh!

And the awesome Incredibles

Mommy and Brent were the only brave ones to ride the Tower of Terror and said it was a great ride. I like hearing everyone scream that was on it.
