Friday I’m in Love {June}

Happy Friday!

1 (1)

{1} I’m not sure I have ever actually binge watched a show, especially when I was taking classes. However, now that I have all the time in the world (so to speak), we’ve been actually binge watching TV. We’ve almost watched two whole seasons of The Good Place in the last couple of weeks. It’s really funny and the short episodes definitely make it binge-able.

{2} We’ve been spending a lot of time outside and in the pool this month. The kids have had a SwimZipΒ rash guard for a couple summers now, but we seriously love them. The zipper makes it super easy to get on and off without having to pull them over their heads, and it’s a whole area of the body that doesn’t need sunscreen! These have also been great for water day each week at camp.

{3} I got my Corkcicle stemless wine glass for Christmas and I’ve acquired another one since then, but it has been perfect for summer drinking by the pool. There is also a lid that comes with it. I highly recommend!

{4} I started Beachbody’s 80 Day Obsession a couple weeks ago. I’m really loving it so far. I am not usually one to be able to workout at home or at night, but I’ve been doing both! I’m only on day 11, so I’ll keep you posted as I make my way to day 80.

{5} A friend recommended the Chore Pad app which we implemented at the beginning of the summer and it’s been going really well! It’s super easy to use and the kids have responded really well to it. We don’t always follow through with these type of things, but we’re still going strong which is also a win for the parents.

What are you loving this month?

Hollywood Studios {June 2018}

To kick off the first couple days of summer, we headed to Hollywood Studios on June 1st. This was a much anticipated trip as it was the first ride on the Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster for a few of the friends. The morning started with a trip to Starbucks to fuel the day.

Untitled

We thought we may have time for Star Tours before our first fast pass but it took a while to get into the park, so we headed straight for Tower of Terror. We ended up doing child swap and taking turns going up in the tower. Kenley lucked out and got to ride it twice.

After Tower of Terror we saw the Frozen Sing Along show. This was our first time seeing the show and I am truly disappointed in us. The show is hilarious! I kept telling Greg that I can’t wait for him to see it.

Untitled

We hit up Star Tours next before it was lunch time!

Untitled

We opted for some indoor activities after lunch and saw the Muppets in 3D! It was a cute show, but not as cool in there as we had hoped.

Before heading over to what we thought would be our last fast pass of the day, we met Chewbacca!

Untitled

Riding Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster with six year olds is the best. The looks on their faces are priceless. They both love the ride so much, but the start of it gets them every time.

Half of our party were able to snag an additional fast pass for Toy Story in the evening, so Remi in guest relations hooked us all up with fast passes AND free ice cream for the kids. Obviously, we got a selfie with him. Our day had been extended a couple more hours, so we headed back out for some dinner.

We caught the Little Mermaid show before ending the day with Toy Story! It was such a long day, but so much fun!

We kicked off summer the best way we knew how and these mamas were tired by the end of the day!
