First Family Vacation.....First Day in the Parks....Hollywood Studios and Ohana

After our first night at WDW it was time to wake up bright and early and get our day started at Hollywood Studios.  Everyone was up and at 'em....well, with the exception of one...

She was kind of crabby and didn't want to get up.

Once everyone was up, dressed, out the door and on the bus we were headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  We had reservations at Hollywood and Vine for breakfast with some pretty important people.  We walked up to the gates and waited with everyone else, then I noticed two workers off to the side with a list so me being me, nosey, went to talk to them about our reservations and how to get in to get to the restaurant.  They asked me a few questions and in a matter of seconds we were through the gates....leaving everyone in our dust.  They had to wait until the park actually opened.  HA!

Since we had early reservations we were allowed in the park before anyone else, which makes for great photo ops!  You don't have to worry about a million other people in your pictures.

Breakfast included June and Leo from the Little Einsteins, Handy Many and Special Agent Oso.
Oso was by FAR MG's favorite, Mads was pretty happy with all of them.  They have a fun little skit and let the kids come up to dance, MG wanted nothing to do with it and Mads was unsure but went anyway and ended up not liking it.  She has become a bit shy for some reason.  The food was pretty good and we would go back again.

After breakfast we hit the road and saw The Little Mermaid show, Muppet's 3D and walked around looking at everything and of course visiting with more characters.

I have no idea what this is.

We also ran into Phineas and Ferb.  That was fun!  They do a cute little skit while you are waiting in line.

What's up?  lol

After all that fun it was time for lunch.  We had lunch at 50's Prime Time Cafe.  It was PACKED!  The food was good, the waitress was terrible (very slow service, MG actually ended up falling asleep waiting for our food).  It is a really cute restaurant and I like their theme.  We would go back but probably wouldn't be our first choice, just because it was soooooo busy.

Mads liked it.  It reminded me of my Grandma and Grandpa's kitchen growing up.

After lunch we went back to the hotel.  We were just tired and hot and just done.  We planned on going back later in the day but that just did not happen.

Once we got back to the hotel we were spent.  We all laid down and we all fell asleep.

For dinner we had reservations at Ohaha.  I had heard a lot of REALLY great things about this restaurant.

We were 5, maybe 10 min, late.

They made us wait 2 HOURS to get us back in!


I know, you would have left and gone somewhere else.

I would have also, if I hadn't heard such great things about the place.

The service here was also lacking (theme here?  Yep, pretty much), the food was good for the most part.  I did NOT like the bread everyone raves about but I LOVED the bread pudding.  I had no idea I liked bread pudding so much.  It was REALLY good.  The steak was good and so was pretty much everything else.  I also did not enjoy the weird noodles they had.

Where we sat you could see the castle, it was beautiful.

We would go back and next time make sure we are not late for our reservation!  lol

I think all of us fell asleep on the bus back to the resort.  It was a long, hot day.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Granny's Flitters

I love my family!  There are so many things I love about each person and also about all of us as a whole.  One of the things I love about my family is we love traditions. Today I am going to share just one of the many traditions we have.....FLITTERS! To me when I think of comfort food, I think of Flitters.  It was a special morning to wake up to the delicious smell of flitters frying in the morning.  It is one smell that every time I smell I am brought right back to childhood and great memories. I am not really sure where the name "flitters" came from or if someone just made it up.  I can tell you how it got started though! My Great, Great Uncle Orville's mom (Grandma Cook) baked bread.  On the days she would make extra bread dough she would invite all of her grandkids over for a flitter night.  She would make her bread and then the extra dough she would roll out, cut into strips and fry up for the kids to enjoy.  That tradition was then passed to my
