Second Star to the Right Blog Party


Summer 830

go visit Fawn, our amazing hostess, to see other Peter Pan inspired adventures  !!!

*An adventure at Mermaid Lagoon*

Come, children and let me tell you a story…

that the fish told me.

The merpeople had a meeting to decide how to get rid of Captain Hook’s pirate ship.

The wise seahorse had an idea.

“sink the ship and pull it out to sea” he said.

so the fish worked together with the mermaids to sink the ship,

and the sting ray had help from the shark to pull it out to sea by a rope.

the merchildren were facinated by all of the sparkly treasure that was on the ship.

the jellyfish said they should invite Peter Pan and the lost girls to come to a party to celebrate.

The little mermaid told Peter Pan to come to their party.

The lost girls waited for the mermaids by the secret fountain

the mermaids came and showed the way…

We went to visit one of my sisters and her family a couple weeks ago.  They live in Las Vegas so we went to the Mermaid exhibit  where they have a real mermaid swim with the fish! the kids all had a ball watching the mermaid!  There is a wall that has artwork of mermaids on it… so beautiful.  ((for anyone interested… this is at the Silverton Hotel on Blue Diamond.))

the rest of the pictures are from walking around the Las Vegas “strip”, and one of the girls swimming.  We had so much fun that week!  and it just shows you that magic is everywhere around us.

    Hi Missy
    Great story. I really enjoyed it. I loved seeing your beautiful berry swap goodies too both sent and received. Sorry I missed your birthday. It looks like you had a lovely time and some great gifts. I picked something up for you when we were away that I was going to send you for Christmas but I will get it sent off straight away and it can be a late birthday gift.
