    lol! Wait, I need actual content?

    There is a lesson in everything. For example, we are currently learning that coming up with great ideas is a lot easier than executing on said ideas.

    Thanks! We actually made an episode but I didn't like it at all - took an entirely different (but more complex) approach that is currently in progress. Good thing I have all this free time on my hands. :confused:

    Ah yes - recitals
    The opportunity to witness the fruits of your offsprings labours for about 3-5 min and then watch other kids who you really do not give a hoot about.
    Be them dance or music they are a wonderful activity to participate in .......
    I am glad that I am past (most) of them.

    My favorite part was how Toni's hair magically transformed into a bun when she left the kitchen and went outside! :p

    Serg (aka, Fractal Jr.) wins the Good Housekeeping Award! :p

    What stood out in the video was just how much food was in your refrigerator. Mine is usually close to barren, but I guess that's because I always eat it all?! o_O :joyfull:

    Great first video--I could tell it was a team effort! :happy:

    Love it! I subscribed. (Of course, Hope will probably unsubscribe me since she does that to all my YouTube channels. Perhaps if you include an episode featuring some Shopkins, she will allow it. lol)

    So bwahahah!!!! :hilarious::hilarious: Ending hilarious. Beautiful hydrangeas on the table. Like how Sterg leaves every light in the house on like a Boss.
    I think you have the start of something good here. Just do some camera reviews have your kids do some toy unboxing videos and 5 million views later you can quit you day job.

    Hi @fractal , Happy to know your family tradition is alive and well, I hope you have fun with it taking on new dimensions as your family changes and grows. We have been changing and re shaping our trips to The World as our brood has changed, for over 30 years now, and wouldn't have it any other way!!
    We are" D" minus 2 days till we are Home at SSR on July 17 - 21. Perhaps we'll bump into you all in the Parks.
    I am a retired R.N. from over 25 years and send my sincere congrats to you/DW, and especially your daughter on her acceptance into Nursing School. I hope she enjoys her studies and finds much satisfaction in her chosen field.
    Sprinkle a little pixie dust on your day!!

    Disney magic!

    That was one of the few times acting was not needed. :rolleyes:

    It was a bit exaggerated but he's gotten too used to living in a dorm room.

    Thanks!

    Thanks! @MinnieM123 It was a good day - food usually doesn't last too long around here.

    Thanks! lol.

    Thank you @Figment Forever ! Unfortunately we are out of the Shopkins age group. :)

    Everyone in this stinkin' house (except me) leaves the lights on. I'm just waiting to get asked why we don't drive an electric car to "save the environment".

    Thanks @littleroo ! This is more work than I thought.

    Thank you!

    Unfortunately we will just miss you. :( We hit WDW on the 25th. Alex is actually graduating in early August and she recently accepted a job at Univ Pittsburgh Medical Center as a nurse. Music to my ears!
    Have a wonderful trip!


    Thank you everyone for following on Youtube. Not sure what's going to come of it, but I am working on a few episodes offering tips for beginner photographers and how to up your game at WDW (and overall).
    Also planning to film a lot while at WDW - and of course take plenty of photos. I'm starting to really get excited!

    First full episode is up!
    Tips on shooting Fireworks...






    8 days to go and I'm getting excited!

    Some issues are popping up however to cause me some angst.

    First - we haven't received our magic bands yet and the tracking number given is useless as it's not giving any update. We are leaving Thursday evening for Tampa so we don't have much time left. :eek:

    Second - my Mom has been having some issues with her left knee. She's been to the doctor several times, including last week. His advise to her for our trip is to skip the parks and just stay at the resort! :eek::eek:
    Now we are trying to decide between getting a power scooter or wheelchair. I dread the scooter because of the whole issue with the buses, but my sister is pushing for that because it will also help at the hotel.

    Third - Val's Dad recently helped someone with moving and hurt himself. He may need some sort of assistance! :eek::eek::eek:

    Looks like I'm going to have to really dial up my patience levels.
