Looks like a very busy day, but hopefully you can get a lot done at DHS before it gets too crowded.
I was getting pretty tired of seeing the same reruns of the shows on PBS, so adding P&F to the mix was a nice break. And even better, there are lots things that make me laugh too while watching.

I'm thinking we are going to wear out our optimized touring plan! I'm going to put everything in, do what we can, and save the rest for our afternoon at DHS!

I didn't realize you were taking an ABD Italy trip, that is so cool! I can understand how overwhelming it is to plan an Italy trip, when we went as a family in 2006, my parents gave up and handed all the planning responsibility over to me. I had spent the summers of '99 and '00 in Italy in college, so I had some working knowledge, but it still was tough.

The good thing was that with me doing the planning, we visited a lot more archaeological sites that we would have done otherwise, he, he, I'm sneaky like that!

If I could throw my two cents in, I vote for extra time in Venice. It is AMAZING! Like living in a fairytale! I remember when I went the first time, I didn't think I would love it, so I only planned on staying for two days. Well I got there and just fell in love with the city! I ended up meeting some guys who were there on a college program and they let me crash on a couch at their apartment and I stayed for another blissful week.

Yeah, I know staying in a strange guys apartment in a strange city was probably not the best idea, but I was 20 and stupid (and even hostels in Venice were expensive). Anyway, they were engineering students at RPI, how dangerous could they be?
Staying extra in Venice was my first choice! The DIS podcasters said they wish they had more time there because it's such a beautiful city and just a couple of days isn't enough. I'm still leaning towards that because I think just one day in DLP wouldn't be enough either, as much as I'd love to visit there. I have a feeling we will end up spending a couple days extra in Rome at the front end of the trip and a couple days in Venice at the end. I'm most excited about the ruins in Rome! I probably would have REALLY enjoyed the sites you took your family to! I love that kind of stuff, although I can imagine as an archaeologist your REALLY love it!!

Oh my goodness, yes, staying with random guys for a week was risky! But hey, you had a great experience doing it. After seeing Taken and watching the show Missing you wouldn't catch me doing that! I'd assume there was someone waiting to snatch me around every corner.

That's great about Phineas and Furb - when we were in the hospital (after I had my son) my Husband would always end up watching it on TV while I "napped." Now they are both addicted to the show

I hope plans work out for you to see Illuminations!
That's too funny about P&F. My DH also had control of the TV for the entire week we were in the hospital after having DS, simply because I was so tired I couldn't care less what was on TV. We watched A LOT of Sports Center that week!! DH started him on P&F and I was skeptical at first, but all three of us actually enjoy watching it.

We watch it every day during lunch! Adding Perry would be SO awesome!! I think he is DS's favorite. Hopefully he is there by October!!

That would be so great! He LOVES Agent P. I know he would get so excited if he saw a lifesized Perry the Platypus.

Harmony Barber Shop

I finally got on the ball today and called to schedule DS's haircut at the Harmony Barber Shop!


I went ahead and booked it for the beginning of our trip on October 21st (our first full day) at 10:30 am. He already kind of needs a haircut right now but I really wanted to wait and have it done in Magic Kingdom again. So I figured best to do it at the beginning instead of half the days of pictures being with long unruly hair!

We had a great experience there last November for Paxton's very first haircut, so I'm hoping this time will be the same!




Now that I'm looking at the pictures, he just might be wearing his Brees jersey again (hoping it still fits...it's a 2T!) since it will be game day!

He has had one haircut at home since his Disney 1st Haircut and did really well sitting still while she cut, so hopefully he will be cooperative this time too!

Gosh he is soooooooooooo cute. I still haven't cut DD's hair yet. I was thinking about doing it at MK, but not sure if we can fit it into the day. Did they give you a certificate or something?

Thanks!

He did get a certificate and also Mickey ears that said First Haircut.



If you can find time to fit it it, it's a really great experience!!

Awww, cute haircut photos! They do such an awesome job there, and it is so super cheap (!!) is it almost a no brainer to do a haircut at the MK! Speaking of which, I should probably get on the ball and schedule one for Everett.

Yes, for Disney, it is surprisingly cheap! Even the first haircut where you get the ears is only $20. I asked today and the regular haircut is $15. Not bad when you think of all the Mickey stickers that are added in to the experience. I have been saying I was going to call and schedule for months now until I finally convinced myself that if I didn't call soon they might not have a time that worked for us so I'd better get on it!

Yay for another hair cut!! That was the best thing we did on our trip in February! I remember your pics and video from the last trip of the hair cut. Paxton did so well! I need to call and book a hair cut for Alex for December. Can't miss out on one of the cheapest things to do there haha!

It was one of my favorite memories from our November trip too! I think it will be tradition for us on all of our Disney trips! And the ears made a great souvenir.
