It had occurred to me about a month a go that I had not taken any time off since Disney so I decided to take some time off. It also so happened to be Labor Day weekend.
So my wife and I took the weekend and spent time together as a family. It was nice to spend some time together. We went to a few shops, ate at some restaurants, watched Disney movies, cleaned the house, and even my wife did some crafts. It was great to take some time out of the usually day to day and just be a family and relax.
We took the kids to The Disney Store and they lost their minds. They always enjoy going and picking out a new stuff animal. Evie sometimes thinks she can leave the store with a handful of stuff. You have to watch her.
I got some good training in this weekend as it fell on my leg and push day. I am getting stronger heading into week three and my body is changing in ways I am loving. I really do believe I will be show ready on time.
Me and the kids got some much needed naps in.
We even had the nephews over and played with them to get us ready. We will be keeping them in two weeks. One house, two adults and four kids… GOD HELP US! Although I did find out they can be bribed with mashmellows
By the time Sunday rolled around we were tired and spent the day getting ready for the next four days of work and school but we found some time to take fun pictures.
Not a bad way to say goodbye to Summer.
We have not had a medal Monday Monday in a while and I completed my virtual race for August! I have to say this was a fun event and I managed to get the August medal and the medal for completing all three races. So now that this series of races are over I have a lot of great things happening in the fall that I am super excited about. I even got my family involved in some of them.
Here is the August mug
Here is the one for the entire series of three races!
This week we are talking about my favorite mouse. I don’t have very many mugs with Mickey on them but I do have. a few. When you go to Disney world your are surrounded by all things Mickey which is great. Some of my favorite memories was meeting this guy in Epcot. The first time you see Mickey at Disney World is very surreal. You see pics and videos of other people but until you are right there beside him and hugging him it is a different ballgame.
As you can see we met Mickey a few times but each time was just as magical. I am so looking forward to seeing this mouse in 2018.
For now I will just drink out of this mug.
It has been a hot minute since I posted a Medal Monday so I recently completed my time for the July Disney Virtual Race and wanted to share my medal for the month.
This month I really hopped back on the track and treadmill. I have not really ran this hard since the Charlotte Marathon event last November so it has been since to work my distance back up and to get me ready for the races and competitions I have coming in 2018.
My favorite breakfast at Disney World was the one at 1900 Park Fare. OMG that breakfast was amazing. The food was so good and the selection choices were outstanding, My favorite thing about this breakfast was that they had the omelet station attendee. He was so nice and loved to spark a conversation with any of the guest.
My favorite foods were the breakfast pizza, omelets, and the bacon. The pastries were on point to.
The cool thing about this breakfast is that is character dining also. You meet Marry Poppins, Alice, Tiger, and The Mad Hatter.
The Mad Hatter was so funny. He came over to our table and told jokes and was making absolutely no sense but in pure Disney style.
I got this mug to remind me of that amazing breakfast and to be mad as a hatter.
Who is excited about the new Spider-Man movie opening this weekend?
I know I will going this weekend to see it. I am a huge Marvel fan and when I saw this mug at The Disney Store, I knew I had to have it. The eyes change when warm liquid is in the mug for added amazing. Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite characters and I have been excited about this upcoming movie since I saw the web slinger in Captain America: Civil War.
Are you going to see it? I will be bringing my mug with me.
This weeks mug tells exactly how I feel this morning. I really don’t want to wake up and go to work today. I have no idea why the early part of the week I feel like a zombie.
One of the things I love about this much is that not only does it feature Goofy, who is my favorite, but the cool saying on the side. When were at Disney I made sure to meet him as many times as I could.
