Unplugged and then, unplugged. Oh, and a Stonyfield giveaway!

Last week, while on vacation, I didn't get on the computer, Internet, smart phone, anything for a week. It felt good. I am firm believer in the potential tyranny of technology, so to just unplug for a week, well, it was refreshing.

When we returned home I was anxious to upload some photos of our trip. Our USB cord for the camera? Completely vanished. Both SPH and I contend we saw it on our kitchen counter while unpacking, but it is gone. Another item lost to the mysterious vortex in our home. This vortex also enjoys snatching socks. But I digress...after a week of being unplugged, we returned to find ourselves unplugged, as in, where is that #&$^ computer cord?

But happy day, I have a technologically savvy SPH and he helped me upload some photos. Wanna guess where we were off to last week?

Someplace warm...


Where you can drive with top down...


Have a spot of tea...


A magical place where children all ears...




Give up? This picture pretty much sums it up:



Yep, for the first time since I was seven, I, along with the whole Sweet Pea family, visited the Magic Kingdom and Disney World. We celebrated both R and G's birthdays while there, met up with some good friends, visited SPH's Aunt and Uncle and, surprisingly, ran into R's Sunday School Teacher, R and G's pediatrician and R's former tumbling teacher too.

A great time was had by all, but now it's back to reality and time for me to begin blogging again.

So, how about a giveaway? Stonyfield Yogurt has a new Yo Baby product that combines yogurt, vegetables and fruit. Yo Baby Meals combine organic yogurt, organic fruit and vegetables to create a yummy meal for baby. Brilliant!

Leave me a comment and you could win:


Free Yo Baby Meals, an adorable Eric Carle growth chart, a cute bib, reusable grocery bag and a travel bowl with lid.

Yo! You have until Saturday, January 30th at 6pm EST to leave a comment. I will announce the winner Saturday night. And as an aside, this yogurt tastes so good, it is a good way to sneak veggies into your older child too!

Umm yes, count me in too. Liam is at the point where he is now devouring everything in sight and is ready to begin the great yogurt introduction (although in my life my mother had intro'd it 2 months ago!) Such a Stonyfield fan!

Fun!! Camryn loves Yo Baby. Glad you guys had a great trip. I've never been and hope to make it one day. Matt's family is in Jacksonville, which isn't too far from Orlando so we've got connections in the area. Were the kids surprised?

我一直亂想怎辦 said...

愛,拆開來是心和受兩個字。用心去接受對方的一切,用心去愛對方的所有。.........................

Katie, It really IS a small world! Ha!
