Going to Visit Mickey & Minnie!

Happy Saturday! I hope you all have lots of fun stuff planned for this weekend. :D

On Monday we are headed to Orlando for a week to celebrate Mr. Lifeguard's 40th birthday, so there will not be a UStream show on Thursday, April 14th. I'll be back to my regularly scheduled program on April 21st!

We are going to be checking out the flower festival at Epcot, as well as spending a day at Universal Studios. Mr. Lifeguard loves Harry Potter, and I know he has been really excited to see the new Harry Potter rides and exhibits. For his birthday present, we are going to see Cirque du Soleil's "La Nouba" and have a nice dinner out. While we're in Orlando, we're also going to hit Animal Kingdom and Hollywood studios.

Plus, we're going to get to see some friends of ours from Virginia who just happen to be there the same exact week we are! Cool, huh? I'm also going to get to meet some of the West Palm Beach and Orlando peeps from YouTube & UStream next week, so I am really excited about that, too! It's going to be a great week for both of us. :D

During last Thursday's UStream, I finished another page in the "Family Circus" mini album:

It took two UStreams to get this page done, but I am really happy with how it turned out. To see it coming together, you can check out the UStream recordings here:
Three-pocket page, Part One
Three-pocket page, Part Two

There are just three more pages left in this album + the cover, and then we are back to working on the Flora & Fauna paper bag album. I have been covering the bags with paper & it is slow going, but I am going to be totally prepared by the time we start again!

Have a great weekend & week! I'll be back soon to tell you all about my trip!
