Wordless Wednesday — Blogging Friendships…

by Janice

Disney Dream - Christening Cruise

I LOVE it when my kids get to become friends with other mom bloggers’ kids! Here is Olivia with her new best friends on Castaway Cay, during the The Disney Dream Christening Cruise. (The beautiful girls belong to the fabulous Nadia from Child Mode! I love Nadia as much as my Livvie loves her girls!)

Thanks to Walt Disney World for including 5 Minutes for Mom on this media trip forThe Disney Dream. Disney covered my expenses, (I covered my family’s,) but my opinions – and my love for Disney Cruise Line – is all my own!

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL)

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Did you know that Susan and I own two online toy stores where you can find adorable toys like a pedal car or a cute rocking horse.

So cute! And fun for the kids to make friends, too.


3 Genny February 23, 2011 at 12:53 am

That is darling, and what great memories!


4 Cathi February 23, 2011 at 12:53 am

What a magical memory Janice! Perhaps their friendships will last into adulthood. That would indeed be magical.
Castaway Cay looks incredible. The water is so clear!


5 Janice February 23, 2011 at 12:55 am

I hope so! Nadia and I are good friends – hopefully we will be able to keep the girls close too. :)


6 Nadia February 23, 2011 at 11:11 am

Oh I hope so too! Either that or we’ll just pack up and come to BC ;).


7 Anne February 23, 2011 at 12:54 am

That pic makes me want to go to the beach ASAP! Nothing cuter than a baby on white sand, playing in the ocean.


8 Mehreen February 23, 2011 at 12:55 am

9 Mimi February 23, 2011 at 1:03 am

What a fantastic opportunity. Your kids are going to have the most amazing experiences growing up!!


10 Jennifer February 23, 2011 at 1:07 am

nothing like a day at the beach and being a child:)


11 Annie February 23, 2011 at 1:19 am

I want to be there too :) My little girl has a cousin her age and I am soooo glad! I hope that friendship lasts a lifetime. I do not have any cousins my age, the closest is about 5 years my junior and we have NOTHING in common.

Happy Wed Janice!


12 Marilyn February 23, 2011 at 1:22 am

I love meeting other bloggers, and it’s even better when they have kids the same age as mine so everyone can be friendly!


13 Angela February 23, 2011 at 1:44 am

Too cute!


14 Jodi Shaw February 23, 2011 at 1:48 am

They’re all just too cute playing together. Oh so happy!! I miss mine being that little, but then again, I actually love this new phase too. They are so precious when they’re that little though!!

Not only did our kids make friends on the Christening Cruise, we did too! Two cabins down we met a family that lives 10 minutes from our house. It’s a small world.

I have to say, Wordless Wednesday is a favorite of mine, allowing me to showcase photographs!

How neat that they found some great friends! I haven’t met any bloggy friends in real life yet. I think it would be neat to meet both of you!

Once again….Janice is taunting me with photos from the Disney Dream cruise…sooo not nice. They showed a commercial for the cruise the other night, and my husband and son were fixated on it. I told them all about my friend, “Janice” who went and took beautiful photos.


63 Dani February 23, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Amazing how the beach and some salty air can melt away life’s troubles, isn’t it? Wish I were there!


64 lesa February 23, 2011 at 2:45 pm

How cute. I wish we had warmer weather now!


65 Heather (One Take On Life) February 23, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Fun! That weather looks heavenly, that picture would make me want to go back right now:)
