We really only spent two full days in Mystic, but on Good Friday we had a lazy morning at the hotel and then headed out with Hamilton in tow to grab lunch. We went to Sea View Snack Bar, right down the road from Mystic Seaport, and sat outside with him eating lobster rolls, french fries, and hot dogs. He had his very own hot dog, he was in his doggy glory.
This week is Hannah’s spring break, and so far it’s been pretty up and down. On Monday we booked a trip for Hannah, Hamilton, and me to head to Mystic for the second half of the week. Spring break fun with me and the small ones! But then I woke up Tuesday with another sore throat, went to my doctor’s walk-in clinic, and confirmed that I had strep. Again. Second time in two weeks.
We’ve been trying a thing around here, or at least I’ve been trying a thing, to better organize our time. Because I’m not a homeschooler. But…I work. I work at home, I have a child in half day preschool (probably next year as well), I have a child getting 4 sessions of private speech and OT each week, I do not have childcare, I do not want to just park my 5-year-old in front of the TV all day.
I’ve been on a break from blogging for a couple of weeks while I got ready for the holidays. And they’ve arrived! They came, they saw, they spread festive cheer all over the house! My in-laws just left this morning, and I’m looking around the house figuring out where we’re going to put everything.
We’ve been a little busy.
Last Sunday H and I went to Brooklyn to film a segment of Sesame Street! It won’t air for about a year; season 46 is on now, and she filmed for season 47. Kathy passed on a message from a work acquaintance that a casting director for the show was looking for kids Hannah’s age to film some segments. They wanted kids of all ethnicities and all abilities, so I followed the quick application process, and a couple of weeks later we got an email from the casting lady to see if we were free that weekend.

This is my last post on our week at Disney, but I wanted to put the photos from the Halloween party separately. Because that’s where we got to sport our PJ Masks costumes, and it was also my favorite thing from the entire trip. I just loved being in Magic Kingdom when it was spooky (but not too spooky), and how cool is it to get to trick or treat around Disney World? It was pretty darn amazing, I thought. And so did Hannah, we didn’t get home from the party until just before midnight, she just kept going.

Here’s another batch of photos from our trip last week. I only have one more post to put up with photos, and that’s for the Halloween party with our PJ Masks costumes! I didn’t take as many pictures on this trip because it was such a busy time, but we do have some great ones. Some of our Disney photographer shots are here, too.
I was at Universal a few years ago, when the Harry Potter section was new, but I’d just found out that I was pregnant and couldn’t ride anything. My brother-in-law Thomas and I took a break from Disney and went over to Universal last week. I Harry Potter’d! I did so much Harry Pottering!
