July 5, 2016: Sweet Home Exhaustion

Yesterday was a very late night … I don’t think I was climbing into bed to chow down on my giant cinnamon roll from Gaston’s until almost four o’clock in the morning! 😯 Still, despite my aches and pains today because good god, am I out of shape + this kid is getting heavy!, I can’t deny that it was a…

July 4, 2016: Sweaty Family Fun

And here I just finished writing something about Disney World being way too busy on Independence Day to visit … so where do you think that I ended up yesterday?! 😯 It ended up being very much a last-minute, impromptu trip – we didn’t even walk into the park until sometime after 7pm, but as Christopher’s auntie is moving away…
