9:00 PM - Dusk
Under the leafy branches of the apple and cherry trees in the orchard, a magical world has appeared...
- blue lights - a computer - snacks - lots of pillows - sleeping bags - DVDs - 3D glasses -
Let the first official Orchard Sleepover and Doctor Who Party begin!
"Rose, always bring a banana to a party." - The Doctor
Edible ball-bearings? Oh, yes!
btw, the cupcake on the far right was dubbed "the David Tennant cupcake" by my bro because he said the frosting looked like David's hair;)
We settled down with our bananas, cupcakes, delicious caramels from France (thanks Winnie!), put on our 3D glasses, and then I introduced Kellie to the wonderful world of the Doctor.
We watched Rose and Dalek from the 9th Doctor's time, then skipped ahead to Ten with The Christmas Invasion, then Blink, and wrapped up our evening with Army of Ghosts and Doomsday.
Oh, and on a previous sleepover, we watched Silence in the Library-Forest of the Dead, so technically that was Kellie's "real" first introduction to Doctor Who. Sorta chucked her in at the deep end, you might say. ;D
When we got to David Tennant, the squeals began...and really never stopped after that.
He's brilliant...and amazing...and adorable...and has GREAT hair...and he's brilliant...and...I'm stopping now. ;)
There were sooooo many other episodes and specials I wanted Kellie to see - Father's Day, The Empty Child-The Doctor Dances, Girl in the Fireplace, Rise of the Cybermen, Idiot's Lantern, The Runaway Bride, Smith and Jones, Shakespeare Code, 42, Human Nature-Family of Blood, Voyage of the Damned, Partners in Crime, Fires of Pompeii, Planet of the Ood, The Sontaran Stratagem-The Poison Sky, The Doctor's Daughter, The Unicorn and the Wasp, Turn Left, The Stolen Earth, Journey's End, etc. - but when it's 4 o'clock in the morning, and you suddenly realize that dawn isn't too far away, it's time to go to sleep. Hehe - yeah, we only got about 4 hours of sleep.
But, it was absolutely the BEST sleepover EVER!!
We woke to gentle, early morning sunlight shining through the leaves overhead.
While I was feeding the horses, Kellie tidied our campsite and snapped photos.
Blanket tents are cool.
Actually, I'd forgotten just how much fun they are...but I never will again.
3D glasses (made by my bro and I - template here) and pin-back buttons made by Kellie.
One for each of us (we let my bro hang out for a bit because he really likes DW, too;) - they say "Run", "Timey-Wimey", and "Allons-y". Very awesome!
And the Bonnie dog got to sleep outside with us, snuggled up next to me.
She's a Whovian, too. :)
Happy Trails, y'all!
