The Happiest Place on Earth

That's right. We went to Disneyland. We brought all three kids and Grandpa Bob came, too. All in all the trip was a great success.

But don't be fooled: Disneyland is the happiest place on Earth where people cry all day long. With toddlers and young kids in tow, it's to be expected.

We did have lots of fun and the kids are still talking about the characters so it was well worth the effort.

On Paradise Pier at Ariel's Grotto. We chose to start our visit at the princess breakfast. We've done character breakfast's twice and both times it's been the highlight of our trip.
With Ariel. She's their favorite.
While we were eating, the princesses came out to much fanfare and excitement. Of course, we took a picture with each one. The fairest of them all, Snow White.
And Cinderella.
Sleeping Beauty.

Then, we moved on to the Ariel's Underwater Adventure ride. It's somewhat new and we'd never been on it before. Super cute. One of our favorites.

We stayed at California Adventure for a bit

and then head over to Disneyland.

Goofy's house in toon town.
Inside Minnie's house.
Waiting to see Minnie. Addie simply adores her and hasn't stopped raving about Minnie since we got home.
The famed mouse herself.
We saw lots of characters in Toon Town. Daisy Duck was out for a bit so we grabbed a picture with her. 
 The park wasn't too busy so we didn't have to stand in too many lines. We rode all the must-do's like Pirates (which broke down for 20 minutes or so. The kids now refer to it as "the dark ride where there was fire and we sat for a long time"), Peter Pan, the Tea Cups, Toy Story Buzz shooter things, the rockets, Dumbo and Autopia.

Jungle cruise.
In Tarzan's tree.
 The new Cars Land was a zoo with a wait no less than 65 minutes so Grandpa Bob and Lexi took off to brave the line and had a ton of fun. We stayed for the parade our last night. What a way to wrap it all up! (I had to hold Emmy so I didn't get even a single picture, but if you go, it's a must see!)

About Me

What started as a way to communicate with far away friends and family has become a place for this horse trainer/HR manager turned stay at home mom of 3 girls to hold on to a bit of her own identity. It's my take on the ins and outs, the ups and downs, the thoughts and feelings, the mistakes and triumphs of this family as we bumble our way to eternity.
