Disney World, Food & Wine and Diagon Alley!

We went to Walt Disney World for the Epcot Food & Wine Festival!
Cranberry bog

I finally got a table!

It was all very delicious.  
And we got to go to the Chase Lounge!

the view from the lounge

Speaking of food, we also got to eat at Victoria & Albert's!

We took a side trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal. 
We wanted to see the new Diagon Alley!

Back at Disney World, we visited the new Indiana Jones themed watering hole.
It's called Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar.
There's a diving bell you can sit in!

Of course we visited the Magic Kingdom:

We rode the Peoplemover over and over:

And we found a nice place to stop and enjoy the scenery:

And the BEST PART: 

It was in the courtyard by the Town Square Theater.
If that's not Disney Magic, I don't know what is!!

Jim Henson Studios!

Visiting Jim Henson Studios was on my Disney Bucket List.  
And we finally got to visit!

Jim Henson Studios used to be Charlie Chaplin Studios.

The bathroom signs are Muppet-ized:
Love the centerpieces at the event

After Chaplin, it was A&M records before The Henson Company bought it.
There's quite a bit of creature memorabilia. 
Here's Carol from Where the Wild Things Are:

Kermit is everywhere!

It really was a lovely day and a dream come true to visit.

It's how he rolls.

San Diego Comic Con 2015!

We went to San Diego Comic Con last week! 
And I wanted to share some photos with you:

Sanrio bicyle girls in the Gaslamp

 I sat in the Iron Throne:

The highlight of my weekend: THE MUPPETS panel!
Pepe, Gonzo, Kermit, Miss Piggy and their Humans

I met Shaun the Sheep:

And Disney Princesses:

And I played in a sandbox full of Crayons at Petco Park:

Of course I ran into the FABULOUS Grae Drake:

We saw some terrific cosplay:

Darth Bunny

Ladies of Fallout

And my favorite Disney character: Edna Mode!
No Capes!

We had a fantastic time and hope to be able to attend in 2016!

E3 2015!

We had a great time at E3 this year!

Our first stop was the Bethesda Studios booth, for Fallout 4:

Me and Codsworth

I also found Cloud Cuckooland:

And Farming Simulator had a much bigger booth this year:

I thought this car was for me, but apparently it's for Pac-Man:

And I got to close the day at the EA Minions demo/luau:
Thanks for the pink umbrella

We had a great time! Hope to go in 2016.

CC's Day Out

We always think of CC as our drowsy sheep friend.  
But this past weekend when we were out of town, we discovered the following evidence to the contrary:

CC on a plane

CC at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas

Caesar's Palace?!?

CC playing some slots

At the Craps table

Trying Roulette

Time to hit the buffet
CC with Caesar himself

So maybe CC isn't always napping when we're away?! 
We've tried to ask her, but she keeps falling asleep.
