Disclosure: This photo was taken before the 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and was part of the PhotoPass CD that we received. Although we paid for our own trip to Disney World to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration, we were given an incredible deal from Disney. Also note that Disney never asked us to blog about this event. As a long time Disney fan, it is my pleasure to share my experiences from the event. More about the PhotoPass coming soon!
You know you are a child of the 1980’s if you can remember playing Atari and Coleco Vision games. Enter Q-Bert, Donkey Kong, Frogger, and all of the old school game characters. Shortly later, Nintendo came into our gaming world. We met King Bowser, Link, and others.
Welcome to the world of Wreck-It Ralph. Characters from our youth will be revived to meet our children and entertain families together. On November 2, 2012, Walt Disney Animation Studios will release their new movie that will take us on an arcade game playing journey. I had heard about this movie here and there, but I have to say that the trailer has me extremely excited to take my family to see this film. Here is the latest trailer to share.
We have all watched this over and over again. I know that we will be heading to the theater in November to check out the rest of Wreck-It Ralph’s world. What is your favorite old school gaming character?
Disclosure: Disney PR notified me of the Wreck-It Ralph trailer. I was not compensated for this and simply wanted to share since I adore all things Disney. You know we will be going to see Wreck-It Ralph when it is released November 2, 2012.
Five years ago today, I was very pregnant with my second son. JSL had not gotten the memo that he had been given eviction orders. He decided that it was not in my best interest to come Mother’s Day weekend when my favorite doctor was on call. Instead, I spent Mother’s Day 2007 hot, uncomfortable, and wishing I was holding my baby boy.
Of course, the joke was on me when I realized that I had been in labor all during Mother’s Day and just blocked out a lot with sleeping in front of the AC unit.
Now, I am the mother of two beautiful and amazing boys. NHL and JSL keep me on my toes, make me laugh, and treat me like the princess in our house ….most of the time. It only seemed fitting to jump into a photo with Cinderella and my two little princes.
Now, I will leave you with a special Mother’s Day message from Disney Pixar and the characters from Brave.
Happy Mother’s Day to my mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, aunts, sister-in-laws, cousins, other family members, friends, and all women. May your day be filled with many wonderful memories.
Disclosure: Disney PR notified me of the Mother’s Day Brave featurette. I was not compensated for this and simply wanted to share since I adore all things Disney. You know we will be going to see Brave when it is released June 22, 2012.
As the mother of two children, I have a hard enough time trying to film my own family from time to time. It is hard for me to imagine trying to make a movie all about animals, nature, and everything in between. Of course, Disney Nature makes this task look relatively easy.
Each year, Disney Nature continues to bring stories of animals to us. This weekend, for Earth Day we get to meet Oscar in the new release Chimpanzee.
If you take your family to meet Oscar during the first week, part of the money will go to help chimpanzees in the wild. I know that we are hoping to take the kids to see this. As a child, I fell in love with chimpanzees thanks to reading books about Jane Goodall. Now, I hope to show my children what this woman has done to help chimpanzees that are endangered. I love that she has helped with this project and supports it.
If you have seen Chimpanzee I would love to know what you thought and how you will work to help Oscar and his family.
Disclosure: I received PR information about Chimpanzee. Since we are fans of Disney Nature, I wanted to share this information with my readers. I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.
My boys love all things related to super heroes. Of course, when I say my boys, I mean all three of the boys – including TechyDad. Yes, my husband has been talking for months about a new movie coming out
The Avengers will be in theaters May 4 and I have a feeling it will be a date night since the boys are a little too young to see it before we preview. Of course, just because they can’t see the movie right away, doesn’t mean they are not excited. The kids are thrilled to see that Marvel characters from The Avengers will now be made into LEGO items. JSL already has begged to get Captain America for his birthday. NHL loved how Hulk was scaled to be larger than the rest and I agree that is a really nice touch.
Here is a preview of the movie if you have not seen it.
Are you planning on seeing The Avengers? Do you have a favorite hero that you can not wait to see in LEGO form?
