Hey everyone! I’m going to say Thank You, AGAIN!

So Friday, October 16th, was our last day of filming for Season 2 of Suite Life on Deck. Cole and I guessed there would be one more season before we go off to college, but we weren’t sure. Today, we woke up with the lovely news of a phone call from Disney that there will be a Season 3 thanks to all of you awesome fans! So Cole and I get a nice long filming break from now until after the New Year, and then we will begin filming Season 3 in January! Thanks for making it happen!

During our break, we will still be doing our schoolwork, we will also be playing video games, hanging out with friends, enjoying all the holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year), and probably doing some charity events, movie premieres, and Disney promotions. We’re also going to make a few trips up to Mammoth and maybe a Colorado snowboarding trip since we had so much fun last time we went there. I’ll keep you posted on where we go and what we do with some pictures, and I’ll still be here regularly to answer questions (look for me even more than usual since I have time off)
