A Big Weekend - Part One

This weekend the Allen family has all the things. Literally. 
We started on Friday with Parker going to his last regular day of high school and his brothers going to middle school. Daryl and I headed to Epcot to meet up with the Hill family. 
Amy works for Disney and she got to bring two family/friends to the castmember preview of the new Guardians of the Galaxy Cosmic Rewind Coaster in Epcot. She and her husband CJ invited me to join them; Daryl hung out with the Hills kids while we rode and took them on a couple of other rides. 

The ride was AMAZING! Our whole family is going back on MOnday night for the passholder preview. But it is definitely my favorite roller coaster on Disney property, edging out Expedition Everest and 
Rock N Roll Coaster. 

Then we headed back to Mexico for lunch - frozen lime margarita and guac with chips for me; frozen strawberry margarita and empanadas for Daryl. 

We hung out for a bit but it was SO hot. We left and headed home and got a nap in before heading out to church for the Broadway Variety Show. My ensemble, God's Echo, sang an entire choral suite with a ton of numbers from West Side Story. There were lots of other numbers from a wide variety - going all the way back to Showboat and as recent as The Greatest Showman. 

And Daryl provided all of the tech help for the night. 

It was a full fun first day of this super busy "weekend."
