CHRONICLE FALLS BEHIND

So many events in the Cupit house have gone undocumented. The editor really should be fired, but it's hard to find a replacement at such a reasonable pay rate.

Some future posts may be out of chronological order, but eventually our readers will be caught up with the family happenings.

Here are some photos from the latest outing to Star Wars Weekend at Disney's Hollywood Studios. The parents debated whether or not to attempt a day of heat and crowds for the grand re-opening of Star Tours. It was the last time they would be able to use their four-day passes. Maren and Brad decided that if the day didn't result in a miserable disaster, it could be a fantastic memory for Laurel and Brant.

To make the day easier, Maren loaded up the diaper bag with snacks and juice boxes while Brad put both strollers in the trunk. The family has figured out that leaving Disney property at lunch is a cheaper, cooler option for food and allows the kids to take a nap in the car. The day was a success.


Laney's favorite show of the day was Disney Junior. The puppets and music had her zoned in.


There were Star Wars characters floating around everywhere. Unfortunately, the lines for the meet and greets were ridiculous. The family got super lucky a few times and landed on some big names when the crowds were small. Seen above are Rex, Ahsoka, Luke Skywalker, a Clone Trooper, Commander Brant, and Ventress.

Amazingly, the place that was top on the kids' list was Pizza Planet (just like in Toy Story), a pretty average arcade. To Maren, the most enticing factor of Pizza Planet was air conditioning. How did we ever live without it? Here's Laurel rocking out and Laney taking a wheel for a spin.
