Time is not money. Nor a thief out to get you. Time is a gift.
The major theme of this movie is Time. He is a person, he is a thing, he is Time. Although usually portrayed as a villain both in our lives and in the movie- time steals from you, running out of time, time is not kind- he ended up teaching us all a valuable lesson. Time is not bad. He is a constant presence and what we choose to do with time is what is important. Time is a gift, if we use it properly.
Family is important. You only get one.
A dream might be more real than you think.
Just because our children do not do things our way doesn’t make them wrong.
Alice’s mother asks her why she must always be so headstrong. Something I’ve been asked myself a lot. Her mother might not like it or even agree with it but Alice is who Alice is meant to be. Likewise the Hatter is not like his father. His father thought hatting a serious business, judging his son’s abilities and personality accordingly.
As a parent we need to be cautious about how we treat our children’s ambitions. Just because it isn’t “right” to us does not make it wrong.
You can’t change the past. But you can learn from it.
Alice Through the Looking Glass is in theaters May 27th 2016!
Four lucky kids are chosen to come up on stage and learn how to properly handle a sword. Then he asks all the kids in the audience to say the pirate pledge, making them honorary members of his crew.
This is one of the shows we always make time for on our trips. It is hilarious! Before the show this time, we made our first appointment with The Pirate’s League, think Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for pirates. He loved it and was dubbed Tom Sharkstank by the pirates.
We must have had the luck of Calypso with us, because he was picked by the Captain to get on stage. So exciting!!
And even though Captain Jack made a comment about me, I still love him 😉
It is located right outside the Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Adventureland. Showtimes can vary, so always check your park map, My Disney Experience App, or ask a Cast Member for the next show.

Save the Hatter
When we left Alice, she was off to sail the world. It has now been three years. She returns to London and comes across a magical looking glass. Stepping through she finds herself back in Underland where things have gone quite awry. Reunited with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen, and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out.
But watch out Alice, the Red Queen is not very fond of you and Time is a peculiar creature part machine part human. Will she be able to help the Hatter get his muchness back before it is too late?

Blue Apron offers original recipes delivered to you each week. These recipes are chock full of fresh ingredients, premeasured so there is no waste, with only 500-800 calories per serving. Blue Apron operates nationwide and you are able to choose the delivery day that best fits your schedule.
I was able to customize my order based on dietary preferences. We went with the 2-person plan to cook up a little date night deliciousness. But a family plan is also available.
Price: $59.94 for the 2 Person plan, giving you 3 meals a week (2 servings each). Free shipping.
Tip: To see if what you think of the recipes, Blue Apron posts the following week’s menu on their site in advance. So you can know before you order if it will be something you might enjoy.
Our Blue Apron box included all the ingredients we would need to cook three meals. Everything except olive oil, salt, and pepper were included. One teaspoon of smoked paprika? Yep. How about a tablespoon of red wine vinegar? All there. Individually packaged and labeled.
The recipe cards included showed everything you need for the recipe, step-by-step photos of the cooking process, and also what wine would pair best.
We tried the Orecchiette Pasta & Roasted Chickpeas, Dukkah-Spiced Cod, and Chicken Fried Chicken.
Not too shabby right? They look just like the recipe card pictures and tasted great.
I think Blue Apron would be great have as a week night, bus mom saver. I’m not sure how many times I’ve realized too late in the day nothing is thawed and had to scramble to make dinner! Or, it would be great for a date night in with your significant other. My husband and I hardly ever cook together so this was a fun project to tag team. Everything turned out wonderful and we even tried foods we never had before, like collard greens with the Chicken Fried Chicken.
If you are looking for easy weeknight meals without any guess work, Blue Apron is for you! Sign up today to receive 2 free meals!
I received my Blue Apron order for free to try out the service. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.
