Around The World

On our last day at Disney World, we tried to jam in as much as possible. While I went to conference sessions, Mike took the kids to Blizzard Beach, one of the two water parks on the property. He’s a good dad…I would never have taken them to a water park! “Oh, your dad is…

Surfing Sunday 03.11

On Friday, Annabel and her bestie performed in the school talent show. This year, they did a dance to Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” so we did ’em up 80s-style, with neon and crimped hair. It’s a good thing Annie wasn’t around in the 80s because crimping that mane of hers took me…

Four Souls Walked Into An Elevator

James’s obsession with the Tower of Terror began, ironically, when he rode on the ride that replaced it at Disneyland. I’d kiiiiiind of tricked Mike into going on the ride, and James insisted on going with him. Mike hated it (“Why would I want to go on a ride that simulates me falling to my…

Welcome To The Magic Kingdom

Hey friends! Did you miss me? I think this is the longest I’ve ever gone without blogging. I didn’t intend to take a break, but between the travel, the conference sessions, and time in the parks and on the cruise, I would fall into bed every night totally exhausted. This was one of the most…

Surfing Sunday 02.18

I’ve spent the last part of this week in a fog because yet again, there has been another act of senseless violence in our schools. I am sickened and horrified and FED UP. I’m in awe of the student survivors of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. They are eloquent and powerful and ANGRY,…

And Away We Go

Our big Christmas gift to the kids last year was…a trip to Disney World. I NEVER thought I would go to Disney World. We only live an hour from Disneyland and I just couldn’t see us ever spending the money for a trip to Orlando when — again — Disneyland is practically down the street….
