Disney Cruise, Take Two

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

Last week we went on another Disney Cruise. Those of you who were around a year ago might remember the Disney Cruise review that I published back in March of 2008. Instead of writing another full review, I thought I’d just write up some details of how this year differed from last year. For starters, […]

Disney Magic Caribbean Cruise Review

Written by dad - 4 Comments

It seems like just yesterday that we were in the early stages of planning a Disney cruise, and yet… Here we are in March, having returned from the Western Caribbean over a week ago. Given that it’s still relatively fresh in my mind, I thought I’d put pen to paper (so to speak) and hammer […]

Happy New Year, and a Holiday Recap

Written by dad - 2 Comments

This is just a quick note to wish you all a (slightly belated) Happy New Year! We just returned from a trip to visit family (where we got a much-needed dose of snow) and are still recovering. All in all, things went very well. We had actually planned to stay home for the holidays, but […]

One Child Left Behind: The Life of a Fourth Child

Written by dad - 5 Comments

We’ve previously written about the life of a third child, and how you need to be careful not to let their needs slip between the cracks. Well, it turns out that the same sorts of things need to be said in defense of the fourth child, as well… My lovely and talented wife was recently […]

This just in from the Department of Homeland Security… The Bush administration is expected to announce on Thursday that it will exempt children from new rules that will require people to show passports when entering the U.S. at land or sea borders.

Sick Kids and Creative Clothes

Written by mom - Leave a Comment

Son #4 had some “intestinal distress” on the drive back home from Disney World. Since we had been visiting Florida, I hadn’t packed very many pairs of long pants. As we drove further north the weather became very chilly. Unfortunately for him, he had exhausted his supply of long pants because of the illness. What […]

Florida Travel Recommendations?

Written by dad - One Comment

We’re looking for a nice family-type vacation spot along the Florida panhandle that would be suitable for a 3-5 day trip in mid-February. Does anyone have any recommendations? We’re looking for both general information (cities and whatnot) as well as specific information (e.g., hotel/resort recommendations and things to do). Please don’t be shy…

Disney World and a Nasty RSV

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

After a whirlwind week at Disney World, we arrived home Friday night just in time to take our sick two year old to the pediatrician before they closed for the weekend. As it turns out, there’s been a nasty RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) making the rounds, and he came down with it about halfway through […]

Roll Your Own Discount on Disney Tickets

Written by dad - 3 Comments

We’re a little over halfway through our Disney World vacation, and I wanted to share a bit about how we got a ‘discount’ on our park tickets. First off, I should say that Disney is pretty stingy when it comes to getting a ‘deal’ on park admission — people will pretty much pay what they’re […]

On the Road

Written by dad - Leave a Comment

I’m writing this from a hotel room in Orlando (actually Lake Buena Vista) where we’re on vacation at Disney World for the week. We’re two days into our vacation (three if you count the drive). Day One was spent at Epcot (with a quick bit of ParkHopped to the Magic Kingdom at the end of […]
