You is kind. You is smart. You is important.

The realest smiles I’ve ever seen .
Briton is one excited little boy to have new pictures of himself to hang on his bedroom wall .
I love his sweet tender heart so much 👶🏼💙
Loved getting all my childrens pictures taken Friday. I just ordered all the prints and our 2018 Christmas card. I cant wait to show you the picture we chose.
Is it really coming to a close? October 2018 has been a FAVORITE! From collaborations, shooting holiday campaigns for Nordic Track, working with Chasing FireFlies, Disney World, and so much more. This month has been one for the books and a month I have cherished!
Tonight I am getting ready for the kids school parade, and our fun halloween activity for the kids class parities.
We decided to do a fishing game where the kids will fish for prizes.
I invited my mom to come down for the fun so I am excited for the kids to have her there with us. It always makes it more special to have grandma there at these sort of events.
I wish you all a very safe and fun Halloween!
See you all November 🙂
Holland was super excited to get to go back to kindergarten. She was released until she got her immunizations, and we are proud to report that she is now all caught up.
Before you critique my “procrastination” this was all intentional.
Let me just say that immunizations, flu shots, circumcition, everyone has strong opinions about how they go about these things.
For me flu shot is an absolute NO (had a friend die from it (see post here))
Immunizations are Time Sensitive! (not one to rush shooting my kids up with who knows what) we do a SUPER delayed schedule. I have an uncle who suffered from polio from the age of 2-death (2015) never able to walk, so I do believe in them. It’s just a timing thing for me.
Circumcision 100% its what I prefer in men of all ages.
Just wanted to clear a few things up, and also share the link to one of my favorite outfits I’ve ever worn 🙂
When I was a kid we took these same kind of fun old time photos, so it was so fun to do it with my family. It was so spontaneous and so much fun!
Disney World I miss you so much already! Since the minute we landed we have been going nonstop over here. Ive been commuting 4 hrs a day for fitness holiday photoshoots (its been a blast!), catching up on homework, assigning babysitters, unpacking, catching up on the blog, and adjusting to home life.
Todays post is going to be more like a journal entry because I always want to remember how much fun we had!

On our first day we had planned to sleep in and make it a pool and relaxing day, but with Disney World out your back door we decided to make it a Magic Kingdom Day.

From our hotel we could just walk to it. We stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin on the Dolphin side. It was so nice not having to deal with a rental car and to be able to walk to some of the Disney Parks. If you couldn’t walk then you could take a shuttle or boat.
The following day we finally slept in and had a catch up day and went to Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party. Where we dressed up and trick or treated Magic Kingdom. It was amazing!
Blizzard Beach. I remember when this fun ski resort water park opened and the commercials were all over the Disney Channel. I was so excited to come here. I had been wanting to go since I was Hudsons age. It was so worth the wait!

Spent the day at the Swan and Dolphin pool. Holland got her hair braided and we played on the play ground. We then went to Disney Springs to our favorite TREX restaurant. If you go, make sure to order the extinction dessert. The dry ice volcano in the middle is so fun for the kids.

Hollywood Studios. I love Hollywood Studios. They just opened a whole new part of the park called Toy Story Land, the lines are NUTS, but so worth it. My favorite ride is still Tower of Terror. The shows are all super fun too.
Animal Kingdom Day. We love the safari ride and the expedition to everest ride here most. Next time we come we are going to do the Pandora land. We walked through it at night and it was so magical.

Our last day at Magic Kingdom! I was really feeling the love and had the best time with my husband and family. We really wanted to enjoy this trip and make this trip about our family. Our home lives our very busy and scheduled, so it was so nice to just take a break from it all and to just enjoy.
I know you all got Disney Overdosed by me, so thanks for following along!
I have been asked lots of questions on my IG DM’s and I am so sorry I have not gotten to most of you, if you do have questions please feel free to ask on my blog (birdalamode.com) or on my IG pics I see those first and respond quickest there.

We had a relaxing Sunday walking the boardwalk, eating yummy food and just taking in our views and nice warm weather. We flew out late that night on a red eye and haven’t stopped day dreaming of our next Disney adventure ever since. Is Christmas too soon? lol but seriously already want to go back!
