The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights

One of the reasons that Wine & Dine is my favorite half marathon is that once you get near the end, when you’re starting to feel pretty tired and your feet hurt and the end seems (and is) still miles away, you suddenly turn a corner in Disney’s Hollywood Studios and you see this and suddenly your fatigue and worry are whisked away! Can you tell how happy this made me, even after more than … Continue reading

Saturday Update

Wow, I’ve been busy!  I guess it’s inevitable this time of year but it always takes me by surprise.  Today  is Eli’s 4th birthday!  Happy Birthday to my wild child!

Saturday Update: just a little late

Well, we made it to Walt Disney World despite the rainy weather and crazy traffic.  Yesterday was a busy day with packing, traveling, obsessing about the Disney Parks Moms Panel pending announcement and going out to the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue for dinner (stay tuned for a post on that fun experience).
