It’s been a long time since
I wrote a blog.. been very busy

July 28, Levi and I drove up
to Disneyland Paris for the Pin Trading Night.
The last time Levi and I went to
Disney together is ages ago.
It was a mother – son weekend and I loved it.
Quality time!
Normally Jeannette is coming with me, but due to a renovation in her house
she
was not able to come. She got her new kitchen delivered on the 28th.



We had a good trip to Disney
and arrived somewhere in the afternoon.
Decided to get a burger at Memphis
Coffee and relax.




I needed Levi to get my pins into the Pin Trading Night venue. I had a
big suitcase full
of Hot Art Acme Art & Pin Series LE 100 to display and my
traderpins. The “Night” was held
at Disney Hotel Sequoia Lodge. The door opened
at 12 AM, pin sales start at 6 PM, in the
meantime, we are able to
trade/talk/laugh/have fun etc. As soon as the door opens,
everybody in line
gets a wristband. Many people just come in to get their wristbands and
then
they leave to visit the park. They return close to 6 PM so they can buy the
famous
Pin Trading Night pins. I always stay to trade, love to see my French,
Belgium, German,
Spanish, English and of course Dutch friends. Because
Jeannette was not with us I had way
more space to display my pins. That is why
I took all the Hot Art Acme Art & Pin Series pins
I have (and some of Levi,
because he was a subscriber).
Look at the picture.. I think it is impressive.
I
don’t know if I told you, but since November 2015 I am the European representative
of the Hot Art Acme Art en Pin
Series. If anybody worldwide wants to know anything about
these amazing pins, I
invite them to join the Official Hot Art Facebook group
https://www.facebook.com/groups/hotartacme/ .




Before I knew it was 6 PM in
which Levi was bored and I had a great time..lol
When the pinteam showed us what pins were being released that day I was very
pleased.
A mini jumbo of Dory.. YES!!
And Megara, Pain and Panic (Hercules)
I really love them, especially Dory.
As always our color (wristbands have different colors and are drawn to select
the
order sales) was drawn last.. come first and the last to buy the pins.. but
ok..
no problem (not for me.. Levi was not amused haha).



After we had bought our pins,
we drove up to the apartment. We got some sushi takeout.. very nice.



You must have heard about
Pokémon Go.. Levi is playing this game and so am I #nevertoold.
Because we were inside almost all Friday I promised Levi we would do some
Pokémon hunting
the next day… OMG Disneyland Paris is one big Pokémon Zoo. We
even made it Gym Leader of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. 

We caught so many.. People
looking at us as if we were crazy.. Who is catching Pokémon when
they are in
the park.. well  WE ARE… had so much fun,
and kept leveling up.
Super Quality Time … magical environment and playing a game with my son.. I
want to go back!
We had a pizza at Del Arte outside the park and after that we hurried back to
see Dreams.



Sunday (last day already) we
packed up and got the park. Levi made a trade..
his Acme Up! for an amazing set
of Civil War pins.. Everybody happy! We had a great meal at
The Lucky Nugget in
Frontierland. During the time you eat, there is a puppet show on stage.. Highly
recommended.
We wanted to go back home in time, so Levi could meet some friends in the
evening,
but then Ben (a good friend from London) texted me to ask what time we
were leaving.
We met up in Disney Village and talked for a few hours.
4:30h we
drove back to the Netherlands (approx 4 ½ 
- 5 hour drive).



I can look back on another
Magical super weekend..



Next weekend is already
planned.. August 25th.. I’ll be back!
Thanks for reading.. love to hear your comments
