Lucky number 13! Today is my birthday so we start off with Owen singing happy birthday to me and talking about his dreams of purple scooters (he has this Züm blue and purple balance bike/scooter.) We talk about going to Mighty-O for donuts and coffee and walking around Green Lake. Then we sneak upstairs a la Mission Impossible to wake up mommy. Then we play Endless Numbers on mommy’s phone. Later in the day we watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers and get Captain Owen’s reaction to them. Finally we close out with his rendition of Row Row Row Your Boat.
The Disneyland episode! We recently took a trip to Disneyland, and Owen and I sat down to discuss the big day. We talk about Pirates of the Caribbean and what type of pirate he wants to be when he grows up, Peter Pan, Belle, The Little Mermaid ride, It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight (my favorite ride) being closed for upgrades – there was a cast preview and apparently the upgrades are fantastic. Then we talk about the Bug’s World bumper cars that he can finally go on since he hit 36″, Astro Orbiter, and the Disneyland Railroad and the dinosaurs. For a little extra treat, after the chat, you can hear snippets of us actually riding Astro Orbiter and King Triton’s Carousel.
