Hahaha too funny to take the kids on Dinosaur without warning! Honestly though, what's a warning going to do? Make them disproportionally afraid and work it up in their minds probably. LOVE the ride photo!
Lunch looks good! I totally understand limiting the kids' sugar and therefore not having cookies at lunch. If you get one sugar fix per day, don't waste it on those things!
Uh oh... littlies crying? Not good foreshadowing there!

Exactly! A warning does nothing for kids except make them freak out more. So we always go with the no warning route. If they get mildly damaged....meh....what can you do.

What the Heck Is Going On in This Picture?! - Part 2

Hi everyone!

We are back with another episode of "What the Heck Is Going On in This Picture?!"

First though, I want to share some news with you. It's some exciting stuff!

Next year will be jam packed for me. Why do you ask? Well, on top of moving, studying for the CPA exam, and life in general, I have three Disney trips on the docket. And I couldn't be happier! I wanted to share with everyone. And if DISmeets happen out of them, well, thats just exciting. MEK, you know I'm talking to you!

Trip 1 -

January 18 to 25

This was a pretty last minute decision for us. This is going to be just my parents and I. So we'll get A LOT more of this.



This will be a trip of new things. My parents first visit to the Dark Side (I have to, I'm sorry!), and we're sticking with table service that at least one of us haven't done before.

Trip 2 -

May 17 to 25

This is a combination of getting the last weekend of Flower and Garden, and just being able to enjoy the nice weather. My BFF Farrell is coming on this trip, and her hubbers is likely coming as well. And my parents. So we'll get more of this.



And with Farrell along.....well......it can get exciting.....







Trip 3 -

Nov 8 to 15

I'm guessing this will be the last weekend of food and wine. I wanted to go for a full week of food and wine, but no. I am now in charge of budgeting at my job, and October is entirely budgeting. Boo I tell you. So, last weekend it is!

This will be a trip with some friends of my parents and I, so the three of them, myself, and my Mom and Dad. So again, you'll get more of this.



I'm super excited! I can't wait, it's going to be an amazing year if everything works itself out. I'm not going to do a traditional PTR for any of them, but I may just tell you a few things here and there along the way.









So, without further ado, here is our update of "What the Heck Is Going On In This Picture?!"









Anyone care to harbor a guess what Joaquin is thinking about?

See you in my next update!

Awwww, three days?! That's such a bummer!

With Joaquin, that is entirely a possibility.

OMG, so many trips coming up! Flower and Garden and Food and Wine, so awesome.

I'm an accountant too, but apparently much more fiscally responsible than you Good luck with studying

Joaquin's face is amazing here... I'm going to say he's thinking about that foot-across Mickey rice krispie treat, or some sort of other treat!

You've got some great trips planned and everything is so nicely spaced. I love that. And yay for an impromptu January trip. That sounds like a ton of fun!

With 3 trips it sounds like 2014 will be a great year for you

Yesterday after they announced the dates for Flower and Garden we picked the same week in May, in hopes of catching both that and Star Wars Weekends

Awesome trips you have lined up! We'll miss you by a week in May.

I can only assume Joaquin is going over the mental checklist for his world domination scheme.

Wow all of your upcoming trips sound amazing!! May and November are my 2 favorite times to go! And I've always wanted to try January, it seems like a nice uncrowded time to go!

Hmmm, I'm thinking Joaquin just got the offer of a lifetime to sell "Tee Tee".

Hahaha. I'm actually pretty fiscally responsible normally. And for us, we are already AP holders (deeply discounted last year due to DVC) and DVC members, so if we play our cards right, trips aren't really that bad for us. All I have to come up with is the ability to eat and to get down there successfully. And in January, we're actually driving, and my Dad has a Volkswagon Diesel, so we're only going to end up spending $250 round trip for gas. Split between the three of us. How can you pass that up!?

Oh, we will definitely see each other on our arrival day! We're trying to actually fly down on the 16th after work, so we'll would be there for a full day on the 17th. I'm so excited!

Ohhhh, second Darth Vader cupcake. My face would look like that too!

January just kind of happened. I was crunching numbers, we talked about doing it as inexpensive as we could, and I couldn't resist the price honestly.

He definitely does look like he's going to eat something, doesn't he?

So we'll overlap! Maybe we'll cross paths or have the opportunity to meet up. You and Caitlin remind me so much of my Mom and I.

I actually chose that week when I forecasted it based on that exact same reasoning. I wanted F&G and Star Wars weekends. We're sad, aren't we?

Girl, you and I keep going on this collision course, yet we never collide! We get so close.

Doesn't he already dominate the world though?
