Fact About Me and Potato peelers.

This is nothing more than a fundamental fact about me that until now, only Greg and my father-in-law knew.

FAM (Fact about Me) : I cannot use a regular potato peeler.  I am a ra-tard when it comes to using a normal potato peeler.  I cannot seem to apply the right amount of pressure without gouging the potato, thereby getting thick chunks of potato skin stuck between the blades.  The only potato peeler I can successfully use is a 'palm peeler' that rests in the palm of the hand and held in place by a ring that slides over the middle finger.
FAM Disclaimer : This issue is long-standing, been going on for years, just sayin. ;-D

Disneyland. Best Surprise Ever!

Greg and I pulled off the best surprise this Summer.  We didn't tell Nathan we were taking him to Disneyland until we were ready to walk into the park.  It was awesome. :-)

None of us have ever been to Disneyland, so it was a first for Greg, Nathan and I.  After our trip, we now understand the tagline "The happiest place on earth." There is just something about it, that makes it a happy place.

We have friends in AZ that seem to go to Disneyland once a year.  We didn't get it and they didn't get how we had never been!  Now...we get it and fully understand the magic of Disneyland. 

I guess I brought back some magic pixie dust with me because I was able to pull together our family vacation video within hours instead of days which is more my speed.

I love that Nathan will have this video to look at in the future so he can remember this very special surprise Dad and I pulled on him!
