Movie Review: Finding Dory

Mr. Grey (Mykl) and I attended an advanced screening of Finding Dory for date night earlier this week. Enjoy his spoiler-free review!   A little back story 13 years ago, a friend of mine who’s first-born was only a few months old shared his experience of seeing Finding Nemo. Specifically, the first few harrowing minutes when Marlin’s wife and all but one egg (Nemo) was lost in the blink of an eye. This was a bit too close for comfort {Read More}

Disney Trailer: Moana

Does the ocean call to you? I don’t know about you, but I feel like the ocean is always calling me. Unfortunately, I live in MN. Lots of lakes, more beachline than California, but no oceans. Sad panda. Disney recently released the first trailer for the movie, and I have to admit, I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I’m bummed there isn’t much of Moana in the teaser. She’s the next Disney princess, so I’m interested {Read More}

Cinderella: Disney Magic Races Against the Stroke of Midnight

I was able to attend an advance screening of Cinderella last week, and let me tell you, Disney magic is still alive and well and able to beat the stroke of midnight. Mykl is planning to take the girls to see Cinderella this weekend as a daddy-daughter double date, and I have no doubt they’re going to enjoy the movie. It’s everything we expect of the Disney classic we’ve all grown up with, with a few more down-to-earth moments that {Read More}

Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Confession – comic book movies aren’t my thing, so I sent Mykl off for boys night to see Guardians of the Galaxy without me. Keep reading for his full review of the film. Mykl’s take on Guardians of the Galaxy: Now, my Marvel knowledge is limited to mainstream superheroes and stops just shy of knowing who that dude with the arrows is in The Avengers. Arrow Man? The Green Arrow? Still not sure. Seriously, who is that guy? In any {Read More}

Planes: Fire and Rescue Movie Review & Activities

Earlier this week I took all 3 kids to an advance screening of Planes: Fire & Rescue. We’re big fans of Disney in our house, and Planes: Fire & Rescue was no exception. The characters were bright and fun, the storyline was easy to follow along, and there was enough “action” to keep my 12, 9, and 3 year old kids attentive during the entire film. Planes: Fire & Rescue continues the story of Dusty Crophopper after his racing days {Read More}

Sharing Disney with Levi

As with most other people I know, I grew up with Disney movies.  I loved the adventures and got to feel all of the anxiety and excitement that came along with watching Aladdin trying to free Jasmine from the hourglass.  I sang along with the characters of The Jungle Book.  I even wanted to get a tattoo of Stitch at one point.  I got a chance to share all of those classic characters with Levi when Disney on Ice brought {Read More}
