Memory Lane: The Magic Kingdom

Good Morning, Blog Lovers!

So, last week at this time I was counting down the hours until I got to leave for the Magic Kingdom. This weekend, I'm counting down the hours until my family comes to visit! (I'm always counting down to something).

Since it's almost the weekend, I thought i'd share 10 things I absolutely love about the Magic Kingdom. 

1. Parking so close you can walk to the first gate 

  • Take the speed train (Monorail) in the morning (Faster to the park).
  • Ride the Steamboat back in the evening (Slower to the car).
2. Awkward family photos

  • All over Disney - there are perfect places to take those embarrassing photos that you will love for the rest of your life.
3. The random indian on Mainstreet USA

  • side note - my Indian friend was gone! Main Street U.S.A. is under construction.
4. The Florida Mountains 

  • Space Mountain
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railway
  • Splash Mountain 
5. DoleWhips

  • Seriously, ... I could eat one of those right now.
6. Swiss Family Robinson Tree House

  • I love that movie.
7. Dumbo

  • So many happy memories!
8. Mickey Ears

  • The ones you wear
  • The ones you eat
  • The ones you take pictures of
  • The ones you find hidden all over Disney!
9. The Electrical Light Parade

  • Never gets old, never loses it's magic!
10. The Castle. ...

  • Seriously, my favorite thing to look at.
    • True story - last Saturday, I sat in the rain on the park bench eating my mickey ear icecream and staring at the castle.
      • Don't judge me - I love the castle. Besides, It was just named one of the top 100 Florida Buildings by American Institute of Architects.

Anyway - these are only a few of the magical things I love about the Magical Kingdom. 

Do we have any in common?

Our Visit to The Little Farm

If you live in the South Florida area and have young children, I recommend filling a car with some friends and family and heading down to Goulds for some fun at "The Little Farm".*
As a mom of young children I'm always searching the web for fun (free or inexpensive) adventures for our family. It was on one of these searches that I found The Little Farm. 
I was skeptical at first because it was 5.00 just to park the car, but... when you've been cooped up in your house with three kids for a few weeks you start to look for opportunities to get out. 
At The Little Farm you will find lots of animals to look at, a cute photo opportunity ($12.00), pumpkins, petting zoo ($4.00), butterfly garden (free), horse and pony rides ($3.00), a play area and food for purchase. According to the website, proceeds from the food and pumpkin purchases during the pumpkin patch event are given to charity.
Our family had a lovely afternoon playing on the farm. We decided not to go inside the…

Tips for taking your Toddlers to the Magic Kingdom - AFTER Bedtime!

Hiya Pals!

In an attempt to capture as many beautiful memories of the days when we traveled through Disney with three toddlers, I have brought my Youtube Channel back to life!

In my most recent vlog, I share several tips on how to have an amazing time in the Magic Kingdom with your toddlers after they are typically in bed. You can find three of the tips listed below.

Tip 1  Make sure children are well rested. Since we live about 5 hours from Walt Disney World, our children are often asleep most of the time we are driving. Since it's next to impossible to get them to go to sleep once we get to our hotel room, we opt for a few hours of fun in the parks. 
Tip 2 Have a plan.  We decided to grab fast passes for the Princesses and Peter Pan because those activities typically have a long line. In order to make the most of our evening, we only did things located inside Fantasy Land. This helped maximise our time inside the parks. 
Tip 3 Utilize the Baby Center!  We always head to the baby c…

MOM HACKS: Postpartum Hair Loss & Regrowth!

Remember when you were pregnant, and everything seemed to glow? 
If you, like me, find yourself sweeping up enormous amounts of hair from you floor, or constantly cleaning your shower drains and vacuum cleaners, fear not. 
You are NOT alone. 
Our hair goes through different cycles. There will be times when your hair is in a state of rest, and then will shed. According to what I've read, when you are not expecting, you loose about 100 hairs a day. However, once you become pregnant, your body slows down the cycles. Thus, keeping those 100 hairs nicely on your head.

Once your beautiful baby is born, and your hormones start to go back to normal... the cycle returns and your hair begins to fall. With all three of my pregnancies, this happened between 3-5 months postpartum. It's quite unfortunate that just about the time I was feeling like a human, and getting the hang of motherhood my hair started falling out.

Now that I've gone through this process three times, I thought I'…
