Impromptu Disney Trip

My acclimation back to work has not been an easy one. Working one job is tough. 1 full time, 1 part time and 1 randomly scheduled is rather difficult. I've been missing my kids and have been struggling quite a bit. But, I will keep on keepin' on! Some highlights from our recent Halloween visit to Disney:
I was rather fascinated with this bottle opener in the hotel.  The Doubletree isn't too shabby.  Blake said they're in every room he's ever stayed in, regardless of hotel grade.  But, in the bathroom, by the bath tub?  Weird.  Why didn't I know about this before?
Beautiful weather.  Great day for Disney!

Christmas is peaking through.

Jack Skellington, meet Jack Starnes.
"Why are you wearing my sweatshirt?  I think that's mine!  And, I know that hat is mine!"
Jack was mesmerized.

Lovely Laine.

New favorite lunch spot.

Nope.  Too much. 
You should have seen what some people were wearing.


Carter lost a tooth mid-day.
The beginning of his next round of losing teeth.  Big kiddo.

Here is where Disneyland gets fun.
We can ride almost every ride in the park together.  As a family.
This was my first time on the Hollywood Tower of Terror.  Jack and Lainey, too.
Loved it!

Another new ride to us. 

Another new-to-us ride.  Goofy's Flight School. 
Teensy 4 seater cars on skinny tracks.  Reminds me of old school carnival coasters.

Awesome views from the top.

Stow away kitteh!!!!!!!!  I wonder how many live at the park?

Kids think it looks like Batman.
Wouldn't that be nice?  Batman escaped the Starnes house only to upgrade to Disneyland.  Same order of chaos.  Just slightly larger in scale. 
I like this theory.  We'll keep it.
Off to work.  Halloween week is ahead with a pumpkin patch visit, carving pumpkins, roasting seeds, school parades, trick-or-treating and more!
Happy Halloween week!

Hang in there ... you'll get more used to working full time, but it'snot easy.

Looks like you had a lovely time at Disney

What a fun surprise! I'm laughing because Austin noticed the bottle opener in our bathroom too. So funny! I guess you can relax in the tub with a beer! :)

Carter looks soooo tall!!! Can't get over it.
