What a weekend for my kids! Their mom's bf won an all expense paid trip to Chicago to see the Disney parade on Michigan Avenue. They were able to visit the Radio Disney studios, meet A.N.T. Farm's China Anne McClain and her two awesome sisters, AND be ON the float WITH Lemonade Mouth in the Magnificent Mile Lighting Ceremony parade down Michigan Avenue! Included in this blog post are some pics of my kids with Lemonade Mouth, China Anne McClain, Radio Disney Chicago and Mickey and Minnie! They wish to thank Lemonade Mouth and China for being so nice to them and they had the time of their lives! What's even more special is that we have seen Lemonade Mouth MANY times, we listen to the CD when driving to their grandparents, and we truly LOVE watching A.N.T. Farm and think China is the best. They also wish to thank the staff of the Best Western River North in Chicago for all they did to make their weekend special. One funny story was that I tweeted a thank you to the staff of the @BestWestern River North, and my family happened to be in the lobby at the time. They heard the manager say that they got a tweet from @DisneyDean and they yelled "That's my dad!". We had a good chuckle out of it. I wasn't there but it was fun to see the kids having such a great time.

My daughter is the one in the middle. They danced while Lemonade Mouth sang "Determinate":

Thanks again to Lemonade Mouth, China Anne McClain, the McClain Sisters, Radio Disney and of course, the Best Western River North and Best Western of Illinois. Wish I could have been there, but so glad the kids had a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
