Wordless Wednesday: Yum Yum Cupcake Monster

This weekend while enjoying downtown Orlando, we stumbled upon this glorious site… My little guy was beyond excited, we haven’t enjoyed a Yum Yum cupcake since December 2011! He selected his all time favorite cupcake – vanilla with blue icing. He waited patiently for me to snap his photo. Then, there was no stopping him! First he picked off and devoured every single sprinkle. Next, he attacked the icing. Finally, he used two hands to shove the cupcake in as fast as he possibly could! The boy has cupcake eating skills! I know you’re…

Typically, I am NOT a morning person but today, I couldn’t wait to jump out of bed and drive to the theme park for this special ceremony. My kid was beyond excited, he “claimed” he was going to ride but I had my doubts since he is not a fan of dark rides. I used some good old-fashion bribery and told him he could…
