Raising Disney Kids; Walt Disney World Trip # 2 Update 

Our next Disney Trip with kids is inching closer and closer.  This year I am letting the kids pick a theme for our shirts for one of the days we are at Disney.  We have Villians, Star Wars, and Princesses.  These themes do not surprise me one bit.  I’m just not one hundred precent sure how I am going to do each theme.  We have now rented a 12 passanger van so we can all ride together and only have one car.  This should be fun.  This trip we really will be a bus.  I hope the kids think it is an adventure.  We have not officially told them we are going to Disney yet so everything we say is “if we go back to Disney”.  Although the four year old did tell my dad the other week Disney Hotels are her favorite.  Me too little one, me too.  This year we are staying at Coronado Springs.  I will get them to my favorite (Port Orleans Riverside) one of these days.  Put I know one thing for sure we will not be going back to Pop Century or any resort that has the Skyliner.  

36

,

I can’t believe next week I will be 36.  It seems like just yesterday I was turning 30 and now I am closer to 40 than I am 30.  Turning 36 really doesn’t bather me it is just a little weird.  But I guess you are doing something right when people don’t believe you when you tell them you are turning 36.  I did decide this morning in 4 years for 40 that is the year I sepnd my actual Birthday at Disney World.  I am already giving people notice.  I already have my dream resort picked out too.  We will see what happens.  

Disney+ Day 2

Here is my list (so far) of what I think is missing.

Angels in the Outfield

– The Happiest Millionaire

– Summer Magi c

– The One and Only Genuine Family Band

– The Gnome Mobile 

– Dumbo’s Circus (maybe wishful thinking on my part)

Under the Umbrella Tree (again maybe wishful thinking)

– more Mickey Mouse Club episodes 
On a side note I watched the new live action Lady and the Tramp.  I was never a huge fan of the original so the fact I liked the new one is pretty good.  

Disney Childhood

As far back as I can remember Disney Movies/TV has been a big part of my life. I guess that is where my love of Disney comes from. With the launch of Disney+ today, which will be like a blast from the past, I thought I would share some of my Disney filled Childhood with you.

🐘 My favorite Childhood Disney Channel Show was Dumbo’s Circus

🧜🏻‍♀️ First Disney Movie I remember seeing in the theater, The Little Mermaid

🧳☂️🎠🧹 I used to play Mary Poppins and Bed-knobs and Broomsticks

🐩 I loved 101 Dalmatians so much my first dog was a Dalmatian puppy.

🌷👑💋 My favorite Princess movie is Sleeping Beauty

❤️ I loved D2 The Mighty Ducks for the hot guys (especially the cowboy 🤠) (I thought Joshua Jackson was cool before Dawson’s Creek)

So far I’m not 100% thrilled, there are a few things missing I thought would be on here. (I think part of me was hoping Dumbo’s Circus would be on Disney+. But that’s not the only thing.)

My Ever Growing Obsession

My Minnie Ear Obsession just keeps growing.

Just ordered these

Updates

🏈🎀 The five year old is playing football and the four year old is cheering so this past Saturday morning was spent in the blazing sun watching them.

🏁 I don’t follow NASCAR like I used to but I’m not going to lie when I saw the headline Dale Earnhardt Jr was in a plane crash my heart sunk. He was my first NASCAR love. I’m glad him and his family and crew all survived.

📺 I still can not get into this new BH90210. I was super excited for it and it had been a big let down to me.

🏰 I think we have created a Disney Monster. The other day we had some stuff for the kids so we put it in an old Disney Parks bag we had and as soon at the four year old saw it she asked if we went to Disney without her.

🌅 I purchased Where the Crawdads Sing, looked at it and decided it would be my vacation read when we go to the Outer Banks in October.

📚 I thought I was getting my reading groove back but not really. I think part of the problem is I have so many books I want to read I just can’t decide which direction to head.

A Few Random Thoughts/Updates

📚 5 & 10 Reading Update: This past weekend was a little hard, for a change I was not the first one up and we had stuff going on each day. But I got my pages read. I’m really enjoying this. I am further in this book this way than I would be if I tried to just read it.

⚓️ A Disney Cruise with the kids might actually be on the horizon. I’m already thinking about their fish extender and door magnets!

📖 I usually enjoy reading on my Kindle but it seems right now I am on a kick where I only want to read actual books.

📔 Has anyone read Where the Crawdads Sing? I am hearing so many good things about this book, I might have to check it out.

🎃 I am not ready for all this Halloween stuff I am starting to see.

😭 My little man starts kindergarten tomorrow. I can’t handle this. He will be heading off to his first day with his Spider-Man backpack we got him.
