19 Years Later

Back in 1995 my family and I went to what was then called MGM Studios.  There, my parents took some photos of my sister and I playing in an area modeled after the movie, "Honey I Shrunk the Kids". This weekend I took some photos of Rocco in the same exact spots since the area is still there, 19 years later. Funny to see that not much has changed.



Frozen at Hollywood Studios

For a limited time, Hollywood Studios had a "Frozen Summer Fun" experience that included snow to build a snowman, an ice skating rink, and of course a bunch of Frozen merchandise for purchase - it is Disney after all. Rocco liked playing with the snow, but declared that it was "too cold" haha.



Afterwards, he fell asleep so I couldn't help but take photos of him with various stuff from the Frozen shop including an Olaf hat, and a stuffed Sven.

Happy Birthday Mom!

For my mother's birthday, my sister and I (plus our families) went to Jacksonville for the weekend to celebrate. I let my sister take most of the photos, but here are a few of the ones I took in the hotel room. Gianna's matchy-matchy outfit makes me smile - even the shoes had little sunflowers on them (though you can't tell in the photo).


 

Rocco is such a sweet big brother

Sleepless Nights

We don't get a whole lot of sleep in the Mintz household between Rocco waking up in the middle of the night crying for Mommy/Daddy/Gianna (true story) and Gianna's penchant for middle of the night bottles. So here's proof that sometimes they do in fact sleep - if only they would stay asleep for 8 hours straight and on the same night! I can only dream of the day (or night rather) that my dreams will be uninterrupted.

The House of Mouse

It was another nice weather weekend, so we packed up the kids and went to the Magic Kingdom for the day. Here's a couple of pics!



The kids love the Winnie the Pooh ride


Gianna's Honeybee outfit was a funny coincidence!

Balloon Swords

Rocco was playing with his cousins Kieran and Lorelei with what used to be a dinosaur shaped balloon but at this point it had unraveled and looked more like a sword or something inappropriate - you decide.

Glimpses of the Future

Sometimes I feel like I can see glimpses of how Rocco will look when he is older, and this is one of those times.
 


But then a couple of seconds later he's giving me the look below, so it doesn't last for long - LOL!
