Another year around the sun has passed. I turned (gulp) 48 years old this weekend, and because of moving I felt all those years. After unloading the truck, and finding the floor, I decided enough was enough. It was time to celebrate birthday at Disney. First was lunch at Chevy’s Mexican Restaurant. I haven’t had their chips and salsa since Staci was an infant. They were delicious as I remembered. Afterwards it was off to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. For the first time, I got to park my own car and ride the tram. It was kind of cool to show my annual passholder band and just get told to have a great day as they waved me through. No parking fees for me now. The tram was fun and arrived quickly. It dropped us off at the entrance.Hamm and Buttercup invite you to knock down both moving and stationary barnyard animal targets using hardboiled eggs. Then on to Rex & Trixie’s Dino Darts to pop balloons in front of a bubbling volcano in this game starring Rex and Trixie. After that was the Green Army Men Shoot Camp where players tossed baseballs to break plates at a green army men firing range. Next up was Buzz Lightyear’s Flying Tossers where he urged players to toss rings and make them land atop the Little Green Men. Finally, to score major points it was time for Woody’s Rootin’ Tootin’ Shootin’ Gallery where you shoot suction-cup-tipped darts at a variety of mine-cart targets in this game inspired by the “Woody’s Roundup” television show. I scored 92,000 points, which I thought was good until I saw Lee had scored over 140,000 points LOL. We all left laughing, smiling, and happy. They all loved the game, which made me feel warm and fuzzy inside. In addition to the warm fuzzies my old body was aching as so were theirs so we decided to call it an early night. We stopped for a Frozen lollipop for Staci on the way out to the trams, and then made it back home, only getting lost once LOL. Ten minutes after we got back home there was a knock at the door. Not expecting anybody, so nervously opened door, and lo and behold a gorgeous yummy Edible Arrangement from my friends RJ and Megan. It was a perfect ending to the day. I had a great birthday.
disclaimer: I took none of these pics, all were borrowed from google LOL I was having too much fun strolling around, and did not take a single picture.
