Jensey Loves Hunting for Easter Eggs in Epcot!

10th April 2016

Whenever life gets a little busy, which is nearly almost all of my life these days, I neglect my personal blog and it makes me saaaaad. But who has two thumbs and some free time this week she’s planning on devoting to new content on here? Oprah! Just kidding… ME! But that would be pretty amazing if Oprah took over for me. ;)

I’m so excited to *only* be posting this a couple weeks late- Our annual Epcot Easter Egg Hunt Adventure! <3 This year, our pals Tim and John David joined us. Unlike last year’s hunt, a relaxing, leisurely “oh, I’m walking up to the country and I see the egg” experience, this year’s hunt was a BEAST. Some countries were easy enough to find, but they were mostly just tricky little monkeys that made me feel like I’d lost my mind.

I normally would resort to cheating when I get frustrated at things like this but for once I didn’t, and we only asked for vague directional help from one cast member, and that egg ended up being the easiest to find. But now that the hunt is over, I don’t feel bad posting our photos of where the really hard ones were hidden! So without further ado, here are some photos from my favorite spring past time at Walt Disney World! <3

I love that Flower and Garden has found its inner Food and Wine. <3

Reason #249 why I love Nate- He notices adorable things like this! :)  Epcot Easter Egg Hunt 2016092 Epcot Easter Egg Hunt 2016093 Epcot Easter Egg Hunt 2016094 Epcot Easter Egg Hunt 2016095

I think China was the first country that made us realize the bunny this year was a little stinker hiding these suckers. We searched China for what felt like an hour (and seriously, one of my favorite things about this hunt? It realllllllly makes you realize how big each pavilion is and appreciate all the details!) We were walking out of the pavilion feeling defeated when lo and behold, that #$%! Goofy egg was nestled between these these two little buildings opposite the pavilion!

Donald was no easier, but John David had seen him on a previous trip. This one was in Africa Outpost, but waaaaay out near the water on a rock!

Definitely needed some adult beverage time after those two!

Once the sun set the hunt got harder, particularly in the United KIngdom. We’re looking everywhere for this stinker, and then realized you had to squint and look through this incredibly bright spotlight to find Thumper!

All in all, the hunt is just plain adorable and something I’ll continue doing year after year. I do think they should have two versions of the hunt, one for big kids and one for the littles. I know how frustrated we got in a couple countries (I’m looking at YOU, China!), and I felt bad for the already stressed-out families with two year olds trying to find these things.

This year’s hunt only set us back $5.95, and for an afternoon of enjoyment and the most adorable take-home egg and keeper map, I was really glad they’ve kept the price low. And look at our Stitch! Fingers crossed next year they let us bring home Figment! <3

Hallpants + Henry Bear : Halloween 2015

31st October 2015

I can’t believe this is the third year we’ve photographed Hall’s Halloween costumes, and the second year for Henry Bear! You can see their past shoots here :

Peter Hallpants <3
Mickey + Donald!

This year maaaaaaay be my favorite yet, both because it’s Hall’s first year to *truly* have an opinion as to what he wanted to dress up as, but also because their parents invited us to trick-or-treating!!! I’ll be sure to post photos of the whole Toy Story-inspired crew later, but I couldn’t wait to share photos from our shoot with these little bugs! <3
