We just got back from the most amazingly beautiful vacation!! We celebrated my birthday in Oahu and loved it so much we are literally already planning next years trip! We stayed on the North Shore to get away from the crowds a bit. Stayed in an AirBnB right across the street from a private beach and had a local's home all to ourselves. It was just beautiful and literally cannot wait to go back! We have been back less than a week and it's definitely been an adjustment trying to get back in the swing of things! Catching up with you guys, getting ready for the school year (we home school), gearing up for sports season with the kids and getting some study time in myself, I've been overwhelmed a bit, but WILL get there :) Have a great weekend, I'm heading to a body of water - I miss it already!

Highly Recommend! Must See!
I'm not big on sequels, but they outdid themselves on this one. Even though it was a cartoon, it felt like I was watching a action movie. My teenagers even enjoyed it much more than the first one! I am not going to give anything away, you have to go see it! Get ready to be on the edge of your seat and laughing throughout the entire movie! You might have a new favorite Incredible! Mom approved and I'm telling you - take your family, you will thoroughly enjoy it!
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Paradis Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.
Released in 2004, “The Incredibles” grossed more than $633 million worldwide. Earning more than $70 million opening weekend, “The Incredibles” posted the second-largest opening at the time for an animated feature.
Director Brad Bird helmed “The Incredibles,” which won an Academy Award® for best animated feature film of the year. Bird also directed Pixar Animation Studios’ 2007 Oscar®-winning film “Ratatouille,” as well as 2011’s live-action film “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” 2015’s “Tomorrowland” and 1999’s BAFTA-winning animated film “The Iron Giant.”

I am very excited to share the news that production has begun on Walt Disney Studios’ MALEFICENT II.
PRODUCTION UNDERWAY ON “MALEFICENT II” WITH
ANGELINA JOLIE AND ELLE FANNING REPRISING THEIR ROLES
FROM THE WORLDWIDE BOX OFFICE HIT
Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Ed Skrein, Robert Lindsay & Harris Dickinson
Join Cast of the Fantasy Adventure Directed by Joachim Rønning
BURBANK, Calif. (May 29, 2018)—Production has begun on “Maleficent II,” a sequel to the 2014 global box office hit “Maleficent,” at Pinewood Studios and on locations throughout the U.K.. Oscar® and three-time Golden Globe® winner Angelina Jolie (“Girl, Interrupted,” “Wanted”) and Elle Fanning (“The Beguiled,” “Super 8”) reprise their roles as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively, two characters from the studio’s animated classic “Sleeping Beauty,” whose untold story was brought to life on screen in “Maleficent.”
Michelle Pfeiffer (“Murder on the Orient Express,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp”), the Golden Globe® Award winning, Emmy® nominated and three-time Academy Award® nominated actress, joins the cast as Queen Ingrith. Also joining the production are Academy Award® and Golden Globe nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (“Doctor Strange,” “12 Years a Slave”), Ed Skrein (“Deadpool,” “Game of Thrones”) and Robert Lindsay (“My Family,” “Wimbledon”). Harris Dickinson (“The Darkest Minds,” “Trust”) joins “Maleficent II” as Prince Phillip.
“Maleficent II” is directed by Joachim Rønning (“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” “Kon-Tiki”) and written by Linda Woolverton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Beauty and the Beast”) and Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster (“Transparent”). The producers are Joe Roth (“Alice through the Looking Glass,” “Oz the Great and Powerful,” “Maleficent”) and Angelina Jolie.
Additional cast members returning from the 2014 film include: Sam Riley (“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” “Control”) as Diaval; Oscar® nominee Imelda Staunton (“Pride,” the “Harry Potter” films) as the pixie Knotgrass; Juno Temple (“Wonder Wheel,” “Atonement”) as the pixie Thistlewit; and Academy Award® nominee Lesley Manville (“Phantom Thread,” “Topsy-Turvy”) as the pixie Flittle.
A fantasy adventure that picks up several years after “Maleficent,” in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora, “Maleficent II” continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.
“Maleficent” opened on May 30, 2014 and grossed more than $750 million at the global box office.
