HOORAY FOR DISNEYLAND

So, we finally did it! I`ve been saying for years I wanted to take the kids to Disneyland... I can`t even remember the last time I was there, I think I was 10 or so... I don`t know who was more excited, the kids or ME!

We decided this trip was for us big kids, so we left Eli with friends and family (thanks to all the Jen/Jenny/Jennifers...lol, thanks ladies!). So, we hit the road. Who knew the one weekend we decide to take a vacation it would decide to pour rain!



Go figure... So, needless to say, this is how I looked the entire first day, like a total DORK:



But, it turned out to be a good thing, in it`s own way.... there were really no lines! We rode everything, got soaked, ate everything, and met every character we could until we were so tired we couldn`t take it anymore...













Day two was a bit better.... it only rained in the morning and sprinkled throughout the day. Poor Ashton wasn`t feeling so swell (turned out he had strep throat, yikes!), but we all had a ton of fun. California Adventure has been rides (I think) and we rode every single one!













The kids were little stars that day. Both got called onstage for a show... got to sing and act a little, then later, they got to sing and dance with the local gold miner, man was he funny:











He sang a song, "I`m my own Grandpa"....

We rode California Screaming 10 times:











Lots of fun memories...











We thought we`d hit up the beach before we drove home... this is the entire beach experience, no joke! LOL, it was freezing!!! But, we liked feeding the birds:











Bye bye California.... until we meet again...
