Once Upon A Pancake

This past Saturday, the high school music boosters sponsored a breakfast fundraiser.  It was at a local restaurant and featured lots of Disney and other movie characters.  Laura and I went with Alaina and Ruby, and we had such fun!

Here we had just been seated and the girls were quite excited about some of the characters they had seen.  They were dressed up in their princess dresses, and all around us were other kids that were also dressed up.  We were greeted at the entry by a King and a princess.  When I went to pick up the tickets I had ordered, the lady told the girls they looked so nice, and asked who did their hair.  Ruby piped up "My mumma did, she's the best!"  I told Laura she needs to remember that praise!

We had a good breakfast; pancakes, eggs, sausage and hash browns.  The girls probably didn't even eat half of it, they were too busy looking around.


Elsa and Arielle stopped at our table.  Miss Ruby, who had been so excited, was suddenly very quiet!


After we ate we got to go downstairs where they have reception rooms.  They had more characters down there, along with games for the kids to play.

 They stopped for a minutes so I could get a picture of them.



They were greeted by Woody, from Toy Story.  They each got to pick out a new toothbrush!


 Here's some of the games they played - throwing a ball through Olaf, playing Plinko, ball toss and pin an eye on Mike.


There was a fishing game too.


The girls came with me for a little while, and we stopped at Great Grandpa and Grandmas house so they could see the princess dresses.
It was a fun morning!

They look so pretty in their princess dresses and beautiful hairstyles. I love that picture of Ruby with the princesses standing nearby - she doesn't look impressed at all, haha.

When we went to see Beauty and the Beast on Sunday I noticed that some little girls had come to the show in their princess dressed.

What a nice time for the girls. They did look like little princesses. Laura always fixes they hair so beautifully.

Jenny said...

Oh dear. Dagny would have had herself a time at that event. I wish she and Ruby and Alaina could play together. Then I could scarf up all that luscious breakfast food, haaahaha. The girls' hair is always so beautiful; Laura really is gifted. I always struggled with my girls' masses of thick hair. I've never been good at braids. Our Erica has that same talent, though. xoxo

So much fun! Every picture of Ruby is funny - especially her face when Elsa and Ariel were visiting!
