The show was excellent, the music was really good and a great time was had by all.
At the end of the show, for a monetary donation, the audience was offered the opportunity to get their picture taken with the actors portraying Sophie and Sky. This was the icing on the cake for Kinzie. Here is the Polaroid we got to take home.

This visit was special because Kinzie's and Maeby's cousins, Emma & Brooke, had just returned from a long visit to Walt Disney World and they were eager to reunite....
... and where better to do it than where "a kid can be a kid".
Kinzie and Maeby both took a ride with Chuck himself...
.... these photos were captured by one of those new speeding cameras you're seeing now on the busy roads. I keep telling those girls to slow down!
(it looks to me like Chuck needed a designated driver - too much pizza and skee-ball will do that to a mouse)

And of course, what is a trip to Chuck E. Cheese's without a stop at the photo booth... it only costs one token.
We last visited Chuck E. Cheese's and his photo booth back in December of 2007.

After some Saturday afternoon recovery time, we hit up the Embassy Suites hotel bar (where Blair was staying), Pie In The Sky for dinner, followed by a visit to the Riverfront Tavern... capped off with a final stop to the "World Famous" Lonnie's Western Room in Printer's Alley. It was great to share with Laura some of my old stomping grounds from my college days.... and another post-4:00am night!
Sunday morning included a trip to Sam's Sports Bar & Grill to watch the Ravens lose to the Vikings (I used to watch every Ravens game at Sam's), a trip to Sonic!, and some relaxation at Garth & Laura's house after two straight long nights out.
I'd just like to, once again, thank Garth and Laura Click for opening their home to us while we were in town.... also, to Laura, thanks for taking some great pictures and sharing them with us!
Check out their blog too!

For those of you who were unable to join us for Mackinzie's 4th birthday party, these photos are for you!
Each year, Laura strives to make Kinzie as cute as humanly possible on her birthday. Many people still talk about the shiny, sparkly silver dress from her 2nd birthday. This year, Laura really outdid herself and made this puffy, colorful tutu all by herself. It was pretty awesome!
We celebrated Kinzie's birthday at the Bounce Party N' Play in White Marsh.
Kinzie had previously attended her friend, Ava's, birthday party there back in January - in fact we blogged about it way back then.
This was the first year that Kinzie was able to invite some of her friends from school and we were very happy to have them join us.
Here our friend Tana is taking her turn with Maeby.

... a trip to M&T Bank Stadium to watch the Ravens first preseason game of the year! The official Ravens photographer came through our section and snapped this picture. Its then made available online for purchase with a Ravens frame to put on a shirt, or mug, or whatever. I chose to rip the picture from the website - gotta love the 'print-screen' option! - and post it here on our blog for free!
Maeby was a good baby all evening. She was really interested in the game and all the excitement for the first hour or so, but then she eventually got a little tired and cranky. She slept for about 30 minutes and by the time the 3rd and 4th string players were scrubbing it up in the fourth quarter we were all about ready to head home.
Great win - by the way. Any time, preseason or not, when we get to stick it to the Redskins is a good time. Hopefully the 23-0 win will precede another great season for the Ravens.
I love being able to take my girls to Ravens games - but it is strictly a pre-season thing. The regular season games are a little too intense for my little girls.
Laura took a lot more pictures, so maybe she'll post them later.
We leave this evening to pick up Kinzie. We're very excited to have our big girl back soon!

Here's daddy and his two girls waiting outside...
This was the closest we could come to Minnie holding Delaney. You can see how thrilled Maeby is haha...
And Beautiful Mackinzie with her Minnie Mouse ears :) I love this picture :)
So we are done with our 3 character meals, and our 3 hopper days at Disney. We are spending just a couple relaxing (and for bert - working) days before we head back to Maryland on Wednesday! It was a WONDERFUL vacation in which we fully spoiled ourselves and our girls! But we do look forward to being home and spending time with our friends and families! We miss you! See you soon!!
