Making Memories!

Hey guys!

Holy Hell, it's been a while since my last post! I hate it when life gets in the way! Today, I had to shove life through the wall just to get it out of my face. I feel great, but life is pissed now! That being said, I don't know if any of you have noticed, but summer is in full swing now and it's time to get your families packed up and create some memories. They could be good or bad, I don't care, just start making some memorable ones. For those of you that know me, I never recommend going to the parks during summer, but you know what, if its the only time for you and yours to go enjoy Disney, so be it. You're going to the happiest place in the world, so here are a few excellent summer tips to take with you to the parks to make those memories, and not freak out and get heat stroke while your doing it.

Remember: Hydration is key!
First off, go and buy a few Camel Back packs, and fill those suckers up with water. Hydration is the key here, you don't want to dehydrate and then turn into a whiny little bitch...BOOM! Yeah, I said it. If you're in the parks, you'll see it. You'll see people just completely lose it, start screaming at their spouses, kids, characters, whoever's around really. Hydrate yourself and be prepared to be in the sun and heat!


Sunscreen is also very important.
The next thing you'll need is some sun screen, and good snacks. Throw all of this in your pack and get ready to have a good time. You're not going to just walk onto the rides during the summer, but I've been told that the lines really aren't that bad. Get your head in the right mindset, and go enjoy yourself and your family. I have so many amazing memories at the Disney parks, good and bad. Trust me when I say that I know how to make bad memories for everyone in my family, even when I was little. The thing that changed for me was when I started going with my own family, my wonderful wife, who's wise beyond her years, pulled me aside one trip and whispered some wisdom in my ears. "We are here for the kids...stop trying to rush everywhere, chill out, and relax!" "SMACK!!" Right in the face! Okay, the smack didn't happen, but the verbal smack did. After I realized that I didn't have to "rush" to every ride in the park, I actually started to enjoy myself.
Certainty of death. Small chance of success. Well, what are
we waiting for? We can handle these crowds!

Not only did I start to enjoy myself, my kiddos and wife had a way better time as well! Sure it was packed, but when you're there taking in the history and nostalgia of Disney, the crowds stopped bothering me so much. Take advantage of that wisdom, and if you do find yourself getting grumpy, go grab a Snickers and stop being a hoser, eh! Disneyland really is an amazing place to be even in the summer time, and when you're prepared to face crowds, have water, sunscreen, and snacks, you're ready to take on the day and be victorious! Enjoy the parks,relax, and don't be that guy....
