Palm of her hand

Palm of her hand
Photo-A-Day #1425

As opposed to being wrapped around her finger. The car is in her hand but me, yeah I am most assuredly wrapped around her finger. What can I say I’m a big mush when it comes to that kid.

Long day, the big project at work is coming along. So many things to think about and people to coordinate. I like it but at the same time I feel stifled because of all the approvals that have to take place and the things that should be done immediately because they can be are taking a long time and the things that require real effort are happening quick. It is weird, exciting and fun all at the same time. Although today I had to send an e-mail to every single person in the company from the top on down. I had a feeling of nausea when I pushed send. I’m not even going to look at my e-mail from work until tomorrow. It is best that way.


Yes IZEAFest 2009 is at SeaWorld the home of the Dolphin Bubbles blog. Also a great place for families to go. The hotel for the event has been announced and the rate is $99 a night, that is awesome. I booked a room at the Renaissance SeaWorld for Allison and I and Eva and then used my points to book a room for Auntie Mo. I was going to try and book both rooms with points but didn’t have enough points. So I thought about buying points. Buying points would have cost more than just renting the room. So crazy. But it is worth it for Mo to have time with Eva and also for our piece of mind, we know Eva is with someone we trust. Also we know how much Eva loves Mo and how much Mo loves Eva.

In the House of Mouse

I also booked a Character Breakfast at The Magic Kingdom in the Crystal Palace. It is a Winnie the Pooh Themed Character Breakfast. We are doing that May 15th. It should be a great time.

Going to the House of Mouse!

See You Real Soon

We just found out today that we are going to be going to Walt Disney World for our Vacation of a Lifetime instead of going to Arizona. While we certainly do want to go to Arizona at some point things just didn’t work out for that location. I was upset about it for a little while but how much can you really complain when you have won a free trip.

We’ll be there from May 14 – May 18, 2009. So we will be staying at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa. This is gonna be quite the step up from the econo places we’ve stayed in the past. This is also an official Walt Disney World® Hotel in Lake Buena Vista so there is a shuttle to the parks. We are still up int he air about maybe renting a car so we’d have more control of when we get back and forth to the hotel and so we could maybe drop in on our favorite folks in downtown Orlando, the IZEA team.

There are many people down in Orlando that I’d love to catch up with, maybe we can do a dinner one night in Downtown Disney or something like that. It will depend upon whether or not we have a car. Of course we hope very much that Grandpa Dano and Mimi can come up to Orlando to visit and also we hope that Auntie Mo can come down too.

I’m very excited to get back so I can spend some time taking some photos. There is just so much to see at Disney and the photo opportunities are amazing.

Cinderella's Castle

I will have to check out Flickr for some inspiration. Then I can try and plan out my shots. Of course I will be taking my Xshot with me so that we can get some great family pics.

On this trip I will be taking another new device. I’ll be taking with me my new Polaroid PoGo. With the PoGo I can make instant photos that require no ink because of the special ZINK paper. I am happy to say that ZINK has sponsored me with products for my upcoming Blogging Event, “Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs” at Speed of Thought Playhouse on the 13th of March. But back to the ZINK Paper. For our trip I will buy some ZINK paper to create a scrapbook while on the vacation. During our downtime we can pick photos, instantly print them and stick them right into the scrapbook. I said stick because you can peel off the backing on ZINK paper and it is sticky. There are so many cool applications for this and once you see the “Blogs, Brews and Belly Laughs” (It will be broadcast live on USTREAM.tv) you will see another great application of the paper. I can’t wait!

Because ZINK was so generous to me I want to tell you so much about the paper. Here are some Key Features of ZINK Paperâ„¢:
* Zero ink required.
* Capable of reproducing millions of vivid colors at very high resolution.
* Earth Friendly. Less waste – No cartridges, no extra packaging to throw away.
* Protected by a polymer overcoat, providing water resistance and image durability.
* Affordable for everyday use.
* Not sensitive to light.
* Long lasting and designed to resist fading from exposure to light, heat and humidity.
