A Thank You on Memorial Day

"I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead." 

Robert G. Ingersoll.

To all those who have lost their lives, to all those who lost someone who served, to all those who still serve and to all those who wait at home, I stand in awe of your strength and bravery and am humbled by your sacrifice. Thank you does not seem enough for all you have done and endured, but you will forever have my thanks and respect.

Pixie Hollow at Epcot- Pixies & Fairy Houses & Flowers, Oh My.

 The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is always one of my favorite Walt Disney World events. Last year I have skipped the Pixie Hollow display. The area was being used as a meet and greet for Tinker Bell and the fairies resulting in a very crowded area. This year Tinker Bell was at her dedicated site at Magic Kingdom, so I decided to check out Pixie Hollow.

The level of detail was incredible. Every display had hidden elements just waiting to be found. There was a section for each fairy plus the new Winter Woods area home to Periwinkle, a new fairy. Each section was themed around its pixie and each section had a fairy house.

Sick Days & Kids

We just got over an episode of the plague in my house. Okay, not literally the plague. It was one of those dreaded illness that starts with one family member, spreads to another until it hits everyone and then somehow mutates until starts all over.  Good times.
