The above photo of our youngest son was taken earlier this week in our new temp-apartment. It cracked the #1 page of Interestingness on Flickr for 02.07.07.

A week ago today we got into our new (temp) place in...Mouseville™! It was a long, dark (literally and figuratively) couple of weeks in an extended stay hotel with two toddlers, but things are finally starting to get back on some sense of daily-schedule, and dare I say it's starting to feel like "home" around here?

As if moving weren't quite enough, we also managed to celebrate our oldest son's third birthday last weekend as well. Where else would our child ask to go, but on a date with The Mouse™? It's still quite surreal to me — this whole "driving to / through the Attractions" thing. I never even made it inside of a Disney park until I was 25-years old. Every year growing up my parents would try and promise "next year", but next year never did quite manage to come... Now my own children think of the parks (other children sit in bed dreaming, hoping and willing to trade every single Barbie and Hot Wheels in their collections for just a mere glimpse of) in the same terms of, "I want to go to Target, and Best Buy, and Walt Disney World..." Here, you cannot escape it. The evening news does a continual live feed and every 5 feet you drive is another billboard tellin' you to go Soarin' with Nemo on Test Track. And here, have a turkey leg!

Sea World ought to really blow their minds. Or maybe not.

But somehow I have to figure out how to make them still appreciate all of this in a few years and not get jaded. Because somewhere on down the line when they visit their grandparents and all that can be offered up for "fun" is an afternoon at Frontier City, I think the resulting eyerolls may register on the Richter scale.

Last but certainly not least, huge congrats go out to Tara and family for the addition of their new son. Angela nailed the birth photography, and I can't wait to watch the l'il guy grow up!

Happy Valentine's, indeed!
