My blogger buddy Athena invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
Day three and I’ll keep the theme of magical firsts for Sloane. This one is at of all place the Magic Kingdom itself D$sney World in Orlando, Florida. This particular picture of the 5,235,263 million taken on that family trip was memorable for me because at the same restaurant The Crystal Palace there is an eerily identical picture of me from my honeymoon in that same restaurant with that same annoying future pink piece of bacon.
Sloane had a blast on that trip, her dad ummmmm not so much. Disney in August is asinine; inhabitants of the sun were probably cooler than I was. Plus that vacation was with the in-laws, ALL OF THEM (insert joke here), but plenty of memories made anyway.
Now I need to go find that excellent bartender from the Caribbean Beach Resort on Facebook. Other than seeing my daughter have a blast he was the highlight of the trip as each evening he would entertain me and every other father on vacation that were at max capacity of in-law overload syndrome. By the end of the week he knew every one of us by name and just what special elixir to mix us to treat our in-law overload syndrome!
Today I will nominate my main man Martyn from across the pond in the good ole U.K., Martyn authors Inside Martyn’s Thoughts, about being a single dad home schooling his children. A former school teacher himself he posts all kinds of amazing activities he does with his two boys. He takes them on field trips to see castles, I mean how frigging cool is that!
