Taste testing Oreo Eggs

It's a little late, but we're finally getting around to trying these Oreo Eggs.
We love trying all sorts of different Oreo cookies so when I saw these of course we're going to taste test them.

They're just about the same size as those delicious Cadbury Creme Eggs that I love every Easter. I'm wondering what's on the inside.

Celebrating my birthday at Disneyland

Happy Birthday to me!
It's been a fun weekend of volleyball, food, and movies. What better way to wrap it up than to go to Disneyland.

Hermosa Beach AVP - Saturday

We had so much fun yesterday at the AVP that when T asked me what I wanted to do on Saturday, I said I wanted to come back!

Hermosa Beach AVP - Friday

The AVP is in town!
Ever since moving to California and taking my first beginners beach volleyball class, volleyball has been my new favorite sport. 
T and I would spend hours every weekend playing volleyball on the sand. And a great part about volleyball is that you get to see some of the best players in the world up close and for free! That's right. The Hermosa Beach Open is completely free for anyone to come watch! And depending how early you arrive, you can set up right next to the courts.

First Disney visit in a while - New Rides and Experiences

These are some really long breaks (for us) for visits to Disneyland. Our last trip was more than a month ago! And in that time there have certainly been some new additions to Disneyland since we've been gone. Let's go!

National Ice Cream Day!

Happy National Ice Cream Day!
Yes it's an official thing. Back in 1984, Ronald Regan designated July as National Ice Cream month and the 3rd Sunday of July as National Ice Cream day!

We celebrated it at Disneyland!

Goal Completed! All 12 Disney Parks around the World and in less than 12 months!

I've been behind on getting out some trip reports because we've had a couple really big trips. Really big like 2 weeks long with lots of stops. In my previous Tokyo trip report, I went into so much detail it was a bit ridiculous, and these aren't going to be any different. 
Looking forward it's been daunting to start. But now it's time to get started. In the coming months, we'll dig into the details.
To commemorate the whole thing, I made a couple fun things. First, a giant picture collage. In it, we're posed in front of all the major icons from each park. I want to get this printed large and framed.

And second, I was surprised Disney didn't create something like this already. I wanted passport stamps for each park. Something simple to commemorate a visit to a park.
I couldn't find it, so I made it myself. A little bit of photoshop skill plus some tips and tricks from a good tutorial. There you go, 12 custom passport stamps, representing each Disney Park.

After the jump, I'll provide some of the files I used to create that passport above.

Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A

We love Chick-Fil-A and when Cow Appreciation Day comes around, you can be sure we're going to celebrate!
Chick-Fil-A has been celebrating this day for 15 years now, every June 9th, giving away a free entree to anyone dressed like a cow. Last year they gave away nearly 2 million entrees!
