2020 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend

Sunday, January 12th, 2020

We just got home from another Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend.  As usual, I drove down Wednesday and the family joined late Thursday evening.

Thursday morning, was the 5K.

Friday morning, I ran the 10K with Mackenzie. She got second place in her age group!

Saturday, I ran the half marathon with Kimberlie and Tristan.

On Saturday, Rilianne ran 100m kids race.

And this morning, I ran the marathon — completing the Dopey Challenge.

The weather was brutally hot this year. They actually cut a mile off of the course, but after I already passed that point. So I did complete the entire distance.

On the way home, I had a good meal at my favorite steakhouse – Saltgrass!

The Big Kahuna at Typhoon Lagoon

Friday, January 10th, 2020

During the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend this year, the temperatures are much warmer than usual. Because of that, Disney offered runners 50% off of waterpark tickets.  We decided to check out Typhoon Lagoon.

We arrived early and Rilianne was selected to be the “Big Kahuna”. They taught her a special wave, gave us a private tour, and let Rilianne open the park.  We even got our own private cabana with lockers for the day!  It was an amazing day and a great way to cool off!

Hilton Head Island Trip June 2019

Sunday, June 30th, 2019

Yesterday morning, we woke up at 4:00 AM and drove over to Hilton Head.  We arrived just after 8:00 and enjoyed a full day at the beach. We stayed the night and enjoyed another perfect day today.  Here are a few photos.  I’m sad that we won’t be back again until next May.

Disney on Ice – Mickey’s Search Party

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

This evening, we skipped Mack’s band concert and took Rilianne to see Disney on Ice.  The TV commercials have been exciting her for weeks and only after I bought tickets did we realize that it was the same night as the band thing.  We enjoyed the show.

Paradise Cove Luau

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

We walked from Aulani to the Paradise Cove Luau.  The food, festivities, and show were pretty unique!


Hilton Head Short Trip

Saturday, June 23rd, 2018

This weekend, we returned to Hilton Head for the weekend. It is always great to get away to the beach.

Inside Whole Foods, I found some Amazon lockers. Amazon is currently building a distribution center between my job and house and I’m hoping to see lockers in my area soon.

The kids did a luau with Pluto. Rilianne was mesmerized.  Other than that, nothing special. Just a great sunny weekend at the beach!
