Disney World Fun!!!

We ventured to Florida (I know, what a surprise!) to visit Mickey for Gary's 50th birthday. We were going to keep a surprise from him, but I'm not very good at keeping those kind of secrets. Although I cannot post a lot of the pictures because Baby M is in them, I did take a few that don't show her face.
Here we are riding Toy Story Midway Mania, one of our favorite rides!

Here's my yummy dessert at one of the restaurants!

Baby M loved the characters at Crystal Palace when we ate breakfast there.

Here's the big kids in front of the castle...

Dinner at our favorite restaurant, Teppen Edo, the Japanese steakhouse at Epcot!
Madison, Bailey, Avery & Kendall

Here's the girls riding the boat in Mexico at Epcot.

I've got to get more pictures from the girls' cameras to post later. We had a great time even though it was quite warm! We decided August was not necessarily the best time to go.....

Check out these great pics from Lesley Proctor. She took my daughter's wedding pics and did a fantastic job.

Great Times!

Here are some more pictures from the reception. It was really fun and so good to see so many old friends!

This is Avery with her best friend since the age of 3, Kayla Saffell.

This is is my cousin's grandson who asked if he could go see "the princess"! So cute! Avery said he was her favorite new person!! Haha!

Here's all the Hendrix clan that were there!

And here's all of the Dykes family who made it to the reception!

What a blessing to come from such wonderful families and have such wonderful friends! Thanks for making it such a fun day!

The Big Reception!!

Here's what the room looked like before:

And here's some of the food we bought to prepare...

And here are the tables ready to go...

I loved the drink urns I found at Sur La Table, I thought they were beautiful. We served Nanoo's lemonade, a favorite that my mom always made for the grandkids. It's basically Country Time lemonade plus a lot of extra sugar. It was a big hit at the reception, thanks Nanoo!

Here are the beautiful cakes by Katie Rowten. She did a fantastic job, especially replicating Kendall's fireman hat.
Those are their initials on the top of the cake, kDa. They don't show up with the black background.

And a few shots of the Candy Bar...
Personalized M & M's with K & A's pictures on them.
We had a great time and so many friends and family came. Thank you to you all, we are so blessed to have you in our lives! I'll post more pictures of all the people soon.
