Merging the Shop and Blog

Emmett’s Expeditions shop and blog are merging. They can now all be found in one place: EmmettsExpeditions.com. I’m slowly moving our articles and resources to the new site. Thank you for your patience during this transition. If you have any questions you can contact me at ashley@emmettsexpeditions.com

  • One of our favorite parts of the International Flower and Garden Festival at EPCOT is the butterfly exhibit. It’s a little early in the event so we didn’t see as many caterpillars as we did last year. However I was able to spot this large monarch caterpillar. .
Emmett pointed out that their “antennae” make it difficult to tell where the caterpillar’s head is. Naturally we did some research and  learned that the long ones are called front filaments and the smaller ones are called rear filaments. 
Caterpillars’ filaments are not their antennae, however they do have a sensory function.

Learning happens everywhere ❤️
  • When is the best time to have a huge chocolate chip cookie?
.
Emmett says, “for breakfast”. I say after dinner... or when you spot one after lunch at EPCOT.
  • Did you know there is an aquarium at the end of The Seas with Nemo & Friends ride in EPCOT?
.
We love spotting the Mickeys throughout, like this one made of rocks. 🥰 🐠
  • How far have you walked in a week?
.
If you play Pokémon Go, you may have heard of something called Adventure Sync...
.
Emmett and I logged close to 45 kilometers this week while having fun for his and my dad’s birthday. We almost made it to the 50km goal!
  • Have you met Figment?
.
Emmett and I spotted Imagination!’s dragon mascot (aka Figment) at EPCOT’s Flower and Garden festival yesterday.
  • For dinner last night, we ate at the Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom. 
We saw Piglet and Eeyore first. They both signed the back of his birthday pin. ❤️
  • Photo Round up of our field trip at the Battleship Wisconsin.
  • Have you ever played Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom?
.
My family continued to celebrate Emmett’s birthday and my dad’s birthday yesterday at the Magic Kingdom. .
Our first stop was at the super secret Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Recruitment Center. We collected new cards and started our adventure on Main Street U.S.A. Emmett also got to trade cards with a cast member in the Emporium! It was a great start to a long, fun-filled day.
