We’ve all had one.  One of those days where nothing goes our way and all we really want to do is grab a spoon and pint of ice cream and tell the world to take a number.

Alexander has had one of those days.  It starts out with gum in his hair, and just gets worse from there.  And when he attempts to get a little sympathy from his family, he doesn’t find anyone to commiserate with him.  Soon, though, each member of Alexander’s family finds themselves struggling with their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

Crustless Quiche Recipe

In the movie, Alexander’s father Ben serves up a crustless quiche recipe for his family.  I think you’ll find this recipe so easy that even if you’re having a horrible day and have little time (or patience) to put dinner on the table, that you’ll be able to pull it off without much trouble.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue flew into theaters yesterday.  We had been promising Bubbles for weeks that we would go to see it the day it opened.  There was a 2:30 p.m. non-3D matinee, and so we packed up some snacks and headed to the theater.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Review: Dusty, Blade Ranger, Dipper, and Windlifter

With as many times that we have, today alone, watched Disney Planes, I figured that it’s appropriate to be sharing some new Planes news!  There is a new trailer for Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue – one that we’ve watched roughly 30 times in the past couple of days.  Bubbles begs me to play it every time I pick up my laptop.

Bubbles isn’t the only excited one in the family.  I love that not only are they doing the sequel, but that they’re doing it so fast!  So often you have to wait years for a follow up to something great, but not this time.  Planes: Fire & Rescue will be in theaters on July 18th.

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue - Dusty

Our old friend Dusty (voiced again by Dane Cook) returns to Propwash Junction excited about his racing career.  But when a fateful training run causes a career-ending injury, he decides to train with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base as a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT). The heroic, often life-threatening efforts involved are admirable, but sometimes seem impossible to master, especially when Dusty has injury that can’t be ignored. Continue reading »
