Wordless Wednesday - My Favorite Views

This Week's Theme: My Favorite Views

One of our favorite Disney Vacation Club resorts is Animal Kingdom Lodge. No matter where you are on property, you'll have an amazing view of the animals. We especially like the view of the animals from right outside our room window!

LeapFrog #FitMadeFun Party

We received products from Leap Frog, CLIF Kids, and Mom Select in return for organizing this party and writing this post.  Our experiences and opinions are our own.
LeapFrog recognizes the importance of getting kids up and active. They declared September 6, 2014, "Fit Made Fun Day", a day to celebrate healthy habits and to encourage kids to get moving. To celebrate the day, a special event was held in Santa Monica, California to see if kids from all over, with the help of soccer star Mia Hamm, could beat a Guinness World Record for active play. The event coincided with the launch of LeapFrog's new activity tracker, LeapBand. 

Unfortunately, California is a bit too far for us to travel, but thanks to LeapFrog, ClifKid, and Mom Select, we were able to host our very own Fit Made Fun celebration at home!

Three Frozen Lunches for Back to School

Here where we live, school is back in session this week. Our little princess is entering second grade this year and to be honest, she's a little nervous. To help make the transition back to school a little more fun, I thought I'd create some fun Frozen lunches for her to have on the first days of school. What better way to start the school year than with some mommy-made lunches based on her favorite Frozen characters.

Beyond the Parks- La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil

Deep in the heart of Downtown Disney lies an incredible show where the two worlds of fantasy and reality collide. In each performance, it thrills fans with its daring feats and takes spectators on a whimsical journey into a world that is exciting, daring and familiar all at the same time. This show is La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil.

ShellieMay, the Other Disney Bear

We may be in the minority, but we're big fans of Duffy, the Disney Bear.  You may have seen him at Epcot, or caught his bedtime story on the Walt Disney World resort TV,  but did you know that Duffy has a friend named ShellieMay?

Foodie Friday - Raglan Road Brunch

Back in March, James and I got to have an adults only trip to Walt Disney World. Once we got over the guilt of leaving our little prince and princess at home, we were able to enjoy some brand new Disney experiences. It was nice to have the opportunity to go to new restaurants and do things that we don't normally get to do when we have the kids in tow. 

One of the new places we got to try on that trip was Raglan Road. During the week, this Irish pub-style restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. But did you know that on Sundays, they host the Rollicking Raglan Brunch? It sounded so appealing, we decided to give it a try.
