Disney WW ~ hats!

Focused on the Magic

I feel like it’s been FOREVER since I’ve participated in Deb’s weekly photo meme.  And, that’s a crime – because I just got home from Disney and have lots of pictures to share.  But, here are my 2 excuses:(1) I’m so far behind in my trip reports and feel like I should get those caught up, and
(2) I recently got a new computer and all my past trip pictures are still on my old one (If you’ve got an easy solution to get them from one computer to another – or a great place online that I should upload them to – please do share!  This back and forth between two computers is driving me insane!) 

Anyway, when I saw this week’s theme – HATS – I knew I had to take the time to participate.  My Gracie is a hat girl all the way.  In every store we walk into, she’ll say “I’ll be back, Mom; I’m going to look at the hats.”  And it took her all week at Disney to finally find the one she wanted to spend her money on . . .

I used to be all hyper-crazy about trying on hats at Disney.
You know, the whole “you might get lice” thing.
I don’t know what caused the change, but I kinda like the new, more relaxed me – and I think my kids do too.
Now, in the event that we ever DO bring lice home, ask me again.

Gracie and Ian had a blast dressing like pirates.
Her costume came with a cheesy hat, and his didn’t come with one at all, so one of our first stops on our recent trip was to purchase these.  Adorable, huh?

Like I said, it takes a LONG TIME for a girl to find the perfect hat.
Took Gracie all week ‘til she finally found this one in Mouse Gears.
Perfect with our shirts, isn’t it?
(Oh, and just ignore Ian’s face in this picture – the kid is a cheeseball – and we’ve learned to embrace it.  Otherwise, I’d be quite stressed out with all our photos!)

Hey! Love your articles. I don't know if you have tried this yet, but why not put them on a large usb drive and then upload them to your new computer, you can then store the usb drive in a fire proof safe and your memories are safe forever! Hope this helps. Take care!

 Great pictures! We don't have a lot of family pictures from when we have gone too Disney.  I have to make a point of getting those pictures next time.

Great shots!  I have an 8 year old cheeseball who has to pose for nearly every photo as well (to the point where her 15 year old sister refuses to be in a photo with her most of the time)! 

I just had to get a new computer and had a similar problem.  I backed up all my photos to an external hard drive and then plugged the external hard drive into the new computer and copied them onto the new computer.  I'm useless when it comes to anything techie and it was pretty easy even for me.

Great hats! While I love the sombreros because they remind me of Mexico Donald, I think my favorite is the pirate hats! That is an adorable picture! :)

What fun photos! 

I use an external hard drive for my photos.  It makes it much easier.  :)
