Why does summer vacation fly by so fast?! Here we are, approaching August, and I just don’t know where they days have gone! Oh wait…maybe I do…shuttling to different day camp activities…caring for summer colds (including my own)…a week at the beach (no complaints there)…
We still were able to incorporate some Disney magic!
We saw Finding Dory in 3D– which was good as far as sequels go – but BRING THE TISSUE BOX! My kids only cried at the “happy tears” moments – but every flashback to little Dory and her parents (and be warned, there are many) made me a water works. And in case you haven’t heard – stay until the VERY END- past all the credits – for a little Disney Pixar extra to enjoy.
We made a big deal about the countdown to the first episode of the new Disney Channel series “Elena of Avalor”. Plus we took a trip to the Times Square Disney Store and saw all the new Elena merchandise.
Our summer PJs – of course are Disney themed!
My husband and I had a wonderful date night – we went to see Finding Neverlandon Broadway – and while it is not a Disney production – it is a wonderful show about J.M.Barrie, the author of our beloved story of Peter Pan. There were some beautiful magically staged moments in the show. Plus, a CRAZY TALENTED college friend of mine, Kevin Kern, played the lead that night and graciously let us come backstage after the show to take a look around. The show is set to close on Broadway on August 21st – but there will be a National Tour – GO SEE IT. There is one scene near the end which is just so magical…and it uses…you guessed it – pixie dust!
And most recently – while on our beach vacation – I took a little “Mommy break” and went shopping in town. I popped into the KMart to get out of the 90+ degree heat and saw these awesome treasures:
I only bought the game – but we love it and have been playing it every night!
So – July slipped through my fingers – but I plan on buckling down in August and Sprinkling tons and tons of Pixie Dust your way!
