My family and I just got back from a six day trip down to Walt Disney World.  I'll be posting my thoughts, as well as my So we stayed at Saratoga Springs.  I have to admit I was a little nervous.  My wife and I stayed in that area for our Honeymoon back when it was the Disney Institute.  We had a great time (its what kicked off our whole love fest for Disney), and it worked great for a young couple.  We could walk to Downtown Disney when we wanted to, the busses were no big deal.  It worked out well. Then a few years ago we went down and stayed there when it was Saratoga Springs.  To be honest it wasn't as great, not because of the resort itself, but becouse our situation had changed.  We were going with kids this time, and the spread out nature of the resort as well as the location on property made the resort more of a pain.  Waiting for busses to come, and then riding through all the stops with kids was incredibly different.  Now w

My family and I just got back from a six day trip down to Walt Disney World.  I'll be posting my thoughts, as well as my families on a number of rides and restauraunts that we checked out while we were down there. We went down on Monday 1/26 on the 6 AM flight out of Manchester.  It was kind of brutal, and I'm not sure I'd do it again.  My kids were troopers though.  I tried to put their sneakers on them without waking them.  Hoping they would just sleep right through the car ride to the airport, but nope, once they caught on that we were leaving they were too excited to sleep! So they got up at about 4:30, and only took a short 1 hour nap on the plane ( unfortunately it wasn't longer ).  We landed around 8:45, got our minivan rental from Alamo and then off to Saratoga Springs! Now rather than do a typical play by play for a Trip report.  I'm just going to post things I noticed, and my families opinions about each parks attractions that w

So what sorts of sports am I going to talk about? The Boston Bruins (and pro hockey in general).  I'm a fan of ice hockey.  I've been playing it off and on since I was five years old.  To be honest I hadn't watched much the last few years (really not since the lockout), but the Bruins have been fun to watch this year and I'm getting sucked back in.  NFL Football - I really enjoy football season, and I'm pretty bummed that its almost over.  I'll continue to cheer for the local Patriots and, I'll admit, probably have a homer attitude towards them.  Goju Ryu Karate - I took Karate as a kid for a couple of years and got about 6 belts in (which was green I think), and I always wanted to get back into some sort of Martial art.  My son took up Tae Kwon Do at a local dojo (Alpha), and so I tried the adult classes.  Meh, it was ok, but not quite what I was looking for.  I started talking to Andrew and come to find out he was starting to offer Goju Ryu classes there as well.  Sounds interesting,
