Clara and I are horribly late to the party  Embarrassed But we have been having our own fun!

I am slowly on the mend and we have some fun adventures planned soon!
Yay! It's awesome getting to see some of her adventures so far. Sorry you've been sick. Hope you are feeling better!

I was at MegaCon in Orlando yesterday and got a photo and autograph with the amazing Christopher Lloyd!! Back to the Future is my all-time favorite movie so I was just over the moon to have had the opportunity to see him!



Unfortunately, we spent the entire day in one line or another so I actually didn't manage to get any pics, let alone any with Hatty. Cry I totally wanted to get a bunch of cosplay pics and stuff...but nope. We just never wound up having time. But it was still a ton of fun! I've just been recovering today.  Cheesy

On behalf of Inselaeffchen and myself, may I present the 2nd international little visitor meeting. Here is Baranof and Hatty posing with Kermit at Disney's Hollywood Studios on Sunday:

Not only did the LV's get to hang out but my husband and I had so much fun with Inselaeffchen, her husband and her adorable twin girls. It's amazing that something as simple as the LV swap can turn into true friendship! I hosted her LV, Apti, a few rounds ago and when she told me she was coming here to Florida on a WDW vacation, we planned to get together. We had an amazing time and my husband and I now have two awesome new friends - all thanks to this swap. Cheesy

Had a busy weekend! Still need to offload the pics from my camera but Hatty has now gotten to see THREE of the four theme parks at Walt Disney World adding both Epcot and Hollywood Studios to her experience! Grin Here are a few pics from my cellphone:

Epcot!




It's Flower & Garden Festival so there are fun character topiaries all over the park.


(With bonus Monorail going by in the background!)


Disney's Hollywood Studios!


Bust of Walt himself!


More pics on the camera but at least you can see some of the fun. Grin We also got back together with Inselaeffchen one more time before she heads back home to Scotland so there's a few more International Meeting of Little Visitor pics forthcoming. Grin

Hatty had a busy weekend. It was my birthday yesterday (Monday May 16th) so this weekend, we went and had dinner at Be Our Guest restaurant in the Magic Kingdom (WDW.) The reservations are hard to come by and in fact I made my birthday one way back in November! Shocked

Waiting to enter Beast's Castle:


Beast made his way through the dining room. (Later, after the dinner you can get your photo with him)


Monday we went and saw Captain America: Civil War, but we went to this awesome new theater with these amazing RECLINING seats!! They were epic.

These are just my cell pics. I have more for the scrapbook on my DSLR.

Yesterday was a momentous day in LV history! Inselaeffchen (from Scotland) brought Baranof (from Alaska) to Walt Disney World in Orlando and met me and my LV, Hatty (from Australia!) It was an international LV meetup!  Grin

Here is Hatty sitting on Baranof's lap in front of Minnie dressed as Elsa:


Of course this also means that Hatty had her first visit to Walt Disney World! She had so much fun. We took a ton of pics, but just a few teasers. (The rest I'll save for the scrapbook.)

She met Princess Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) who thought Hatty was just the cutest!


And of course no trip to Magic Kingdom is complete without getting a pic in front of the Castle!


...or two! Cheesy

My mom, sister and I got together yesterday for a belated Mother's Day. We went to a cool store that does vintage/upcycled items, had lunch and generally just had a nice day together.

Hatty checked out a shell jewelry box.



Then we had some food. I got a yummy pizza:



There was a metal statue of Captain Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribbean) right outside the restaurant, so Hatty wanted her pic with him. Cheesy



At the end of the day, she stopped to smell the gardenia flowers that were blooming.

Tomorrow, I'm going to get to meet Inselaeffchen in person! We were LV partners a couple rounds ago and she's on a Florida vacation. So I'm going to meet up with her and we'll have an international Little Visitor meet too! Grin So wildfyre, your LV will get to meet up with abuckshort's LV!

Today (Saturday May 7th) was Free Comic Book Day! So we hit two different comic book shops.

One of them had some amazingly creative homemade cookies in superhero designs:


Between my husband and I we got a bunch of awesome comics!


Which Hatty promptly dug into:


Much fun was had and many comic left to be read! Grin

Early this morning, way before dawn (around 5:30am) it started to thunder. For the next 2.5 hours we had near constant flashes of lighting and a continuous rumble of thunder rolling across the sky. After an hour or so, it started to rain and the lightning and thunder increased. It was a heck of a storm. My part of Florida is known as "Lightning Alley" and is one of the most lightning-active locations in the world. (Our NHL team is the Tampa Bay Lightning for the same reason!)

Around 6:30am I thought Hatty might want to see some of it, so I grabbed my cell phone and went out onto my balcony. There's a minute long video here: https://youtu.be/RRQXMfSUoI8 The video quality isn't amazing since it was dark and I shot it through my screen, but it gives you a good idea. Wink As you can see the lightning was nearly constant!



After filming, I was able to get back to sleep for a little while thankfully.

Unfortunately, we had a miserable weekend. I paid $200 to be part of what was supposed to be a HUGE festival. That's a LOT of money for me and this is my job so I rely on shows and markets to make a living. Unfortunately, it was a total dud. I sold $70 worth of items and lost a ton of money. Basically, I don't get a paycheck this week. Cry

Almost nobody around mid-day:


So nothing fun for Hatty. I had hoped she could enjoy a rockin' festival but...yeah. Nope.

Hopefully, Hatty can have more fun next weekend. Sad

Hatty came for a walk around my apartment complex today, taking in some local plant life and the pool area!

Pretty pink hibiscus flower!


Artsy palm tree pic! Cheesy
