Disney Code Names - Board Game Tour

Alex and I take turns picking out games to play for our board game tour. He picked Vilainous so it was my turn and I decided to go with something a little easier. We were still feeling the Disney vibe so I thought it would be fun to try Disney codenames. 

Disney Villainous - Board Game Tour

Alex and I have been talking about playing through all of our board (and card games) for years and now we’ve finally started our official “tour”. It’s going to be a big project because we have a TON of games. We aren’t even sure how many we own. This will be a fun way to log them all. We are going to also keep track of who wins when we play each one and chart that data at the end. My money is on him winning more often than me.

A Muppet with Autism

We had the most incredible experience recently where we got to meet Alan Muraoka. If you and your kids recognize him, it's because one of the many creative things he's involved in is running Mr. Hooper's store on Sesame Street since 1998. Yes, Alex and I were geeking out over that! Alan was so sweet with Alex and they even talked about Julia, the muppet on Sesame Street who has autism.

Pocahontas - Disney Films Project

I know this film bothers a lot of people because of cultural and historical issues. I’m not going to tackle those here, but I can understand why they are problematic. I enjoyed the overall message of the film of the understanding of peace and acceptance of others - no matter how different they are from us.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

We really enjoyed Rogue One when we saw it in the theater at release time. We recently enjoyed rewatching it at home with my daughter who had not ever seen it before. I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for Star Wars movies now that I have recently watched (and reviewed) all of them in numbered order.
