After binge watching Cobra Kai (read my review here) on YouTube a few weeks ago, I started thinking about how much I still think about or quote my favorite movies from the 80s. I sat down and starting writing out the list. As I researched each movie a little, I was noticing that the years the movies were released all differed.

Last week I was talking about how eating healthy has changed how things taste for me. Some foods I used to run away from are now quite delicious to me – including Indian Food! One of the items I mentioned that we’ve recently tried was a gluten free cupcake made with chickpea flour and chocolate hummus as frosting.

This Disney dad just returned from a week at the World. I jokingly started making a list of things that drive me crazy when I am on a Disney Vacation. So I decided why not 12! Here we go! #12 – Disney guests who cannot figure out the finger scan at the turnstiles. Every park has the same entry turnstile. It consists of a pass … Continue reading Disney Dad’s Dozen – Top 12 Things That Drive Walt Disney World Dads Crazy
