Week 45: update includes David's first middle school play and going to see the new Marvel movie, Thor!

Friday November 10th

I went to photograph David in his first middle school play.  He had 4 small rolls, he was a citizen, sloth, a coconut guy and his main roll was the Nun's Priest.  He did a fantastic job in all his rolls, but I busted out laughing for his roll as Sloth.

Monday October 9th

We spent the morning at Animal Kingdom and headed straight to Pandora!  It had one of the coolest rides I have ever been on!  After Pandora we did all the attractions we had wanted to hit and then it was time to get back to the resort so we could get for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween!



The costumes lasted about an half hour!

Tuesday October 10th

We were able to spend a few hours at Epcot before we needed to be on the bus back to the airport!  We fit in Soarin', since we had not had the chance to ride it before.  It was the perfect end to our trip and meant we were able to cross off all of our bucket list items!

All good things come to an end!

52 Weeks ~ 2017: Week 40

Week 40: weekly update includes Charlie's race day and our surprise trip to Walt Disney World! 

Sunday October 1st

Today Charlie ran a half marathon.  He usually runs in Boston this time of year but we had a secret trip planned during the event so he decided to run a local race.  The boys and I dropped him off at the start and had enough time to grab some breakfast at a nearby dinner.  We even got to see the start of the race and get a high five after the first mile before we headed to meet him at the finish line!

Breakfast before we head to the finish line!
Ready to cheer for Dad!
It was a gorgeous fall day for a race! This was one of his best races in a long time! He hasn't run this fast since 2014. He came in 9th overall and won 1st place in his age group! Official time was 1:20:53!

Thursday October 5th

Surprise!  We're going to Disney!

Our flight was delayed for 2 hours, so we didn't arrive to our hotel until really late!  It was right to be because we were starting our first day at the Magic Kingdom bright and early!

We made it!

Friday October 6th

At the Magic Kingdom until mid-afternoon and then Epcot for dinner and fireworks!
