Disclosure: The Dancing Hotdogs family was invited to the Disney Social Media Moms Conference.  As always, my posts are based on my opinions and experiences. We are happy to announce that we will be attending the Disney Social Media Moms conference at the original happiest place in the world…Disneyland! It’s a welcomed change from the last couple of years (though wonderful) gives us a chance to show the boys the original Disneyland, which has its own unique feel and fun. The last time Divina and I were there was over five years ago before we had either Rock or X.  I am sure it is going to be a special experience for us to return with our two boys.  Now that they are a bit older, I can’t wait to try out some of the bigger boy rides and attractions like Radiator Springs and The Indiana Jones Stunt spectacular. In addition, this trip gives us the chance to stay in the Disneyland Hotel (the original hotel for Disneyland), which I am sure is an experience in itself especially … [Read more...]

The holiday and New Years decorations are down and January freezing temperatures have got you a little down and your kids cannot stop asking you, “what are we going to do now?”  Got to LOVE winter cabin fever!   Luckily the Dancing Hotdogs family found some educational and completely engaging indoor activities at the American Museum of Natural History.

Yes, you saw correctly the Power of Poison includes real life animals, figures through history, a poison lesson and use of technology to solve poison mysteries! The … [Read more...]
