Winter is coming. In my house, that means long weekends trapped inside with increasingly crazy, argumentative kids enraged by too many hours fighting over the rules to Uno, Life, and Monopoly.
My birthday (Dec. 17) and Christmas have come and gone, and now there's a nice pile of geeky presents stacked on the Geek Tree's rocket-themed tree skirt.
My family and I recently went to Disney World. This is part 4 of my 4 part series looking at the trip. Read Part 1: Downtown Disney, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Part 2: Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Part 3: Pin Trading, Autographs, Fastpass, Card Games.
Up until October 2012 I'd been to Disney World five times, never with kids. This week that all changed as my wife and I took the kids on our first-ever destination vacation to Disney World.
I was on the road last week, missing my family terribly and looking forward to getting back home. Oh sure, I had a blast on my trip -- I got to hang out with higher education friends as part of Moodle Hack/Doc Fest at Kalamazoo College, I saw two baseball games, and got to watch prices rise and fall at the Kalamazoo Beer Exchange -- but I was looking forward to coming home the whole time.
