Just caught up with the rest of your plans. Can't wait for you to get started! We really enjoy Denny's. Plenty of them to choose from as well.

I'm sure we will visit Dennys. We didn't go last time but I absolutely loved the peanut butter and chocolate pancakes

Trails End dinner buffet has always been somewhere weve wanted to try but never made it to. I like to have a few options for us so I managed to secure us an adr for early evening on Memorial Day after our trip to Discovery Cove. I was surprised to see a lot of availability so close. We would then be hopefully be able to make it to Chip and Dale's Campfire Singalong. So we will see when we are there if we fancy this or stick to the original plan of The Sugar Factory.

Last little change. We are ditching Mama Melrose Fantasmic Package. This was a meal I was going to pay oop for and mainly for Fantasmic which thinking about it is a waste. We are going to re try 50s Prime Time Cafe. It was our 2015 meal of the trip but disappointed last time. Im hoping that as expectations will be lower we will be having a better time. Going to be a fair bit cheaper than Mama Melrose

Many ask about Evie so thought Id share that weve just got back from Evies latest Great Ormond Street appointment. We brought this one forward over concerns her vision was gettting worse. Unfortunately that has been confirmed. Her left eye basically can only see some light now. Her right remains stable and hasnt deteriorated as much as the left thankfully. Its horrible to hear but its not really a surprise. We also finally after 3 years got our gene results back to confirm her condition is Stargardts which weve always suspected. Me and DW are both carriers of the defective gene so unfortunately combined its a one in four chance of our kids getting it. So Evie has it, Lily Belle so far shows no signs of it. On a positive they are hoping to do trials of tests on this particular faulty gene. IF this happens and its an incredibly big IF then it could possibly slow down or stop the deterioration. It would never cure. No timescales on these kind of medical tests. It could be years or not all.

Im pleased its over for another year. Great Ormond Street is an amazing place but at the same time a heartbreaking place to be.

So onwards and upwards. We through a charity event are going to see Wicked in the West End tomorrow. We have a special touch tour of the props beforehand and we have second row seats so we are looking to that very much. The also happens to be a Shake Shack down the road so will be leading the family there for lunch

Its also only 41 days to go!

Shake Shack: New camera Test

Please forgive me posting this but I really wanted to test out the new camera and there are lots of Shake Shacks in Florida so it may give anyone planning on going a little insight. This is the one just by Victoria Train Station.



We had just finished our touch tour of some of the props for Wicked and had an hour before the show started so there was only one place we were interested in going for lunch. If youve read my previous reports then you know when I see WE I mean ME.



It was 1pm on a Saturday in London so I was concerned how busy it would be. It was busy but the queue moved fairly quickly. A little too quickly if Im honest and we didnt get quite as long as Id have liked to read the giant menu.



I panicked and stuttered through the order and the server must have thought me a moron. We were then given a buzzer to wait to buzz for our order to be ready. The girls were given the responsibility to find a table. Kelly realised 12 seconds later that was a silly idea and went off to help.

It didnt take long for the buzzer to go off. I was really excited as this had been on my to do list for ages. It was already on a downer in Kellys eyes when she saw the cost.



DD1 Evie Mae had a cheeseburger with bacon. She said it was nice but the bacon was to crispy.

DD2 Lily Belle had an all beef hot dog. She said it was good.

DW Kelly had a ShackBurger. It came with lettuce, tomato and Shack sauce. She thought it was ok but small for the price.

I went for a double Smokeshack which came with bacon, chopped cherry peppers and Shacksauce.



I thought it was a really tasty burger. I really enjoyed it.

The girls shared some cheesy fries and I got some garlic mayo and onion fries. I loved these and so did the girls. Kelly really didnt like either of the fries. The fries at Shake Shack are crinkle cut.



For drinks the girls and Kelly got milkshakes. They said they were ok but I was disappointed with the size of them for the price.



So overall. It was nice but really pricey for what it was. 56 for that! Five Guys would be similar and overall I think I prefer Five Guys as well. If we pass a Shake Shack in Florida Im not sure Id go. Its a place I wanted to try but its out of the system now.

Indulgence over Ill be back May 9th with the post Twilight Check In meal.

George

Firstly, sorry to see about Evies diagnosis but as you say, it just confirms what you already knew. Fingers crossed for her that her right eye stays as stable and also that Lily Belle isnt affected. Will GoSH gene test her or do you just have to look out for changes?

Looks like your new toy is working well. Weve not been to Shake Shack and definitely wont be paying London prices. We did Five Guys last time we went to DLP and really enjoyed that so its on DSs list to do next time we venture into London.

How was Wicked? Its top of my to do list of London shows at the moment. Hope the girls enjoyed it, especially with the props tour before.

Finally, good luck with the builders! Hope they get lots done before you jet off. Not too long to go now
