Insights and other delightful information from our trip...I promise to stop talking about our vacation soon...

Every year when we go to Disney, we see something interesting. Like the year Crocs were making their way into fashion, and I kept wondering why people were wearing gardening shoes to the parks.

This was the year of the stroller. Seriously, I have never seen so many weird strollers. The pod-like ones, the ones for airplanes, but the one that took the cake was the Peg Perego stroller we saw on the Monorail one night. And I have scowered the internet to find it, and I can't. Sorry, no picture. It was a double stroller, probably at least 4 feet long. The kids in it faced each other, and they could basically lay down as it made one big huge bed. And the damn thing had a steering wheel on it. And they had to use the steering wheel since it was such a long stroller, it took some work to go around corners.

And I saw a famous person. Okay, sort of famous. Maybe a B-lister. Or C. We were eating breakfast/lunch at a character buffet in Animal Kingdom and guess who was sitting near us??
John Tartaglia. Yea, I know, most of you have no idea who he is, but I do. My kids love Johnny and the Sprites. He was there with a friend and two kids. Not sure whose kids they were, but we saw them later in the park riding stuff.

I was too chicken to go up to him and ask for his picture. Ray will tease me about that until I die.

I LOVE Johnny! I met him at a free concert that he did with Ginger and Basil at Grant Park in Chicago last summer! After the performance he signed autographs and took pictures with us! Jeff tells me that it was good I had Jeremy with me or I wouldn't have had an excuse to meet him....he still says that Jeremy could have cared less...it was me that wanted to meet Johnny!! He's probably right...there is just something about a really cute gay man that sings catchy songs for kids and has the greatest smile that gets me going!!!!

I would have had no idea who Johnny was if the Sprites weren't with him.
