Sophie and her BFF Riley, on Sophie’s Birthday, June 19, 2008.

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s edition of the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, hosted by my great friend Deb from Focused on the Magic!  This week we are talking about our June Calendar Shot, and since my daughter Sophie’s birthday is in June, what better subject to feature then her?!

The picture above was taken in the queue for the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh line on the day that we celebrated Sophie’s 7th birthday with her friend Riley.  We had such a great time that day!  We went to the Magic Kingdom for the day, we did some swimming at our pool at Coronado Springs, and we came back to the park for dinner at the Liberty Tree Tavern, where I got this photo.

16 Days til Disneyland – Cozy Cone Motel!

As we get closer to the day we leave for our trip, we start running into more and more things that are reflective of the areas that we have a lot of interest in.  Today, for Day 16 in our countdown to Disneyland series, we are taking a look at the Cozy Cone Motel which, while not a motel like in the movie, still has plenty for us to enjoy — namely, some delicious ice cream!

The unique backstory behind Cars Land is that the Radiator Springs Racers is the next big race, and it has come to Radiator Springs!  As a result of the big race, Sally has converted the Motel into an eatery, featuring everything that you would find that comes in a cone, such as ice cream, chili “cone” queso, “route” beer floats, and even popcorn served in a cone!

This uniquely themed area will be a stopping point for us during our trip.  Is it a stopping point for you as well?
