Growing up my family was never huge on the 4th of July. We didn't go to a lot of the big community celebrations and unless Disney was involved we didn't head out to see a lot of firework shows but now that I'm grown and I can make my own plans I absolutely love all holidays the 4th of July included. It's one of the things that Mike has had to get used to - that I go crazy each and every holiday and I'm always looking to do something fun to celebrate. So this year Mike went above and beyond and made reservations for the Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany Pavilion at Epcot! I was so excited to get to go to the park, to have a great place to eat dinner and to know we would be out and about taking lots of photos and just enjoying our time together - and that is just what we did!
We had so much fun in the park! We went on our favorite rides, we had a really great dinner - though we both ate more then we should we didn't eat as much as we could have so we were pleased about that. We enjoyed the show at the restaurant, we chatted with our table mates it was a lot of fun. We were pleasantly surprised that for the first bit of the day that we didn't have to deal with a lot of crowds and as the evening went on most people were lined up waiting for the fireworks so we got to continue to enjoy the rides and the park with no lines or crowds! As expected the Epcot fireworks were magnificent!!
We got home around 11ish and immediately took Hooper out for a walk and Mike lit some sparklers - he did this mostly because I wanted to get sparkler photos! We have plenty left over so I think we'll be going out for another little photo session soon!!
Today I am battling some pain in my back, this pain has been bothering me on and off for a while - I even discussed it with the doctor but she didn't seem concerned. Usually it bothers me when I'm in the car for a long time or any time I'm sitting for a while like the movies but it started while we were waiting for the fireworks and it just won't quit. There is so much I wanted to get done today but I'm having a tough time getting going. Wish me luck!
I think it's time for another contest so I will be announcing that this week so stay tuned!!!
