My First Adventure

The day has come and I am ready for the gang to pick me up. The gang, for those of you that are new friends, are the CCSI pioneers and include Opus, Olive, Momo, Asta, Karl, Ruis, and me.


I received a package from Opus and Olive for my birthday with specific directions that included being packed by Monday at 9:00am and to wear the blindfold that was in the box. I have been ready and waiting not sure what is up but know it will be a travel adventure of some kind. I sat by the window all morning waiting to hear the sound of the MFV's motor as they arrived.

I had so much time this morning because I got up early from excitement that I cleaned my room and put my suitcases in the living room so I could just grab them and be off in a flash, I sure hope I didn't forget anything.

Before I knew it they were here and right on time!

After driving which seemed like hours and hours, that is probably just because I was so excited to see where we were going, I heard sounds of music, rumblings, and lots of laughter. I couldn't figure out where we were until I was allowed to take off my blindfold.

To my happy surprise I found out that we were at the Seuss Landing at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida! The gang is treating me to three days and two nights, paying for all my food, accomodations, and the theme park tickets. This is so purrrfect as I had a Seuss birthday party just a few days ago so this just fit right in! I'll keep you posted on what we are up to as the adventure continues. Don't forget, too, that I will visit with all of my friends that came to my party. The mom has been busy and I haven't been able to see everyone yet but hopefully by the end of the week she will have more free time to help me out on this. Good thing I am away from the house because I would be bored with nothing to do.

ps: Be sure to check out the auction this week, Ollie is donating her time and talent to do self portraits for a donation. These portraits are a limited edition so don't wait to long. Check out the details at Fiona's Fundraiser Week #6.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh Gracie I am going to miss you while you are gone! I had so much fun at your party! I wish mom hadn't gotten sick, so I could have stayed the whole time, but I did have to be there to take care of her at least part of the time - it is only fair. But I will be dreaming of you while you are in Seuss land - it sounds like it will be very fun!!

Smooches!!
