It's my birthday weekend! And I'm lucky enough to have my family here to celebrate with me!

Hunting Lions at Disneyland

Today at Disneyland we're celebrating The Lion King! And because we're lions today, we're going to hunt for other lions at the park.
For hats, there's Ian sporting his Young Simba hat from Disneyland Paris. My Simba hat (which we're calling Mufasa today) came from Disney World. Alli has a rare Nala hat which I think was released around the time of the movie.
And you can see in the background, the banners are sporting lions on their banners. Lion Count - 1.

Quick Disneyland Visit

Today was just a quick visit over to Disneyland. Both parks opened up at 8am today, but we had a slow morning getting ready and didn't leave the house until late. That meant we didn't get to the parks until 9:30am.
Our hats today are classic Disney character ball caps. Some version of Goofy and Pluto has been around for years and years. Goofy, Pluto and Donald can all still be found around the parks. Mickey however is unique, in that I can't remember seeing another one. He's definitely part of the set though. He's winking just like Pluto.

104° at Disneyland so we're celebrating Snowmen

Southern California is currently going through a heat wave and Anaheim hit 104º today! I know of one snowman at least that loves the idea of summer, and sun, and all things hot. So maybe all snowmen love summer, right? In order to "stay cool" we're going with a snowman theme today.
For hats, I've got a Mickey Snowman from Walt Disney World. Alli couldn't be talked out of her princess Rapunzel hat. Ian has a snowman Mickey from Disneyland Paris. Theresa is sporting Winnie the Pooh from Disneyland Paris. And Jacob has our buddy Olaf from here at Disneyland.

Happy July 4th!

Happy July 4th! Everyone is celebrating today!
Ian has been so excited for July 4th.
Ian - "We're celebrating America's birthday! I'm going to go down the water slide. And throw water balloons. And ride in the bike parade!"
All that excitement meant he was talking to Alli about all these things well after he was supposed to be asleep. And he woke up early in anticipation.
With him up and everyone else getting up, we got an early start on breakfast and had our fill of all types of pancakes, meats, eggs, and hash browns at the Original Pancake House.

And we got the house all decorated for the neighborhood block party. Now's a great time to bring out my Lego Mickey Mouse mosaic.

#myOreoCreation contest, tasting different Oreo flavors

I love tasting unique flavored foods, so when my brother (who lets me know about so many new foods) told me about the #myOreoCreation contest flavors, it wasn't long before I was at the store looking for them.
So, what flavors do we have? A Piña Colada Oreo Thin. A Cherry Cola with Pop Rocks Oreo. And a Kettle Corn Golden Oreo. All of them sound interesting and all of them are worth trying!

And whenever we try foods, it's always better to try them with others. I might like something, but others might find it gross. Except the kids. They like everything.
