The Lion King Movie Night

Last night was our latest movie night! We watched The Lion King. Ashlyn enjoyed it but she actually didn't sit through the whole thing. I'm thinking maybe she just wasn't in the movie mood. She normally has a really good attention span and will usually watch a whole movie. It had been quite awhile since I've seen the movie, but my Daddy sent me a copy recently. I was incredibly excited!!! I had been looking around EVERYWHERE for a copy to borrow since it is in the Disney vault right now and I didn't feel like buying it on ebay. I knew it was a fabulous movie, but I forgot how fabulous.

So here is our table. I decided not to decorate the dining room table this time and just focus on our kitchen island thingy. We didn't have much, but I thought it was cute. Baby Simba didn't stay up there for very long. He is one of Ashlyn's favorite stuffed animals (it goes between him and her stuffed Princess Aurora doll) so she wanted to carry him around. :)

I knew exactly what dress Ashlyn was going to wear. I just thought it was perfect for the theme.

Before dinner we went on Safari for Simba!

Where's Simba?

We kept it simple. Aaron took Ashlyn into the kitchen and once I hid Simba in her doll bed and then once in her princess tent thing. After that she didn't want to give him to me to hide. She wanted to carry him around. :)

For dinner we had Wildebeast Steaks, Pride Rock Baked Potatoes, and Forest Broccoli Trees! (We had a very last minute guest and we just had enough broccoli for 2... Ashlyn had dinner earlier... so that's why it's so skimpy. haha)

For dessert was Rafiki's Banana Pudding! I alternated the Nila Wafers with animal crackers to keep with the theme.

Monday marks 100 days until our upcoming Disney trip! We are in the process of making a countdown calendar to hang up on Monday and we'll have a special dinner. I'll be sure to post about it afterward! Have a great weekend. ♥
