It has been too long since we have blogged, but we have been busy!! Just to recap the last busy week for you… Monday Disneyland, Tuesday Disneyland, Wednesday Universal Studios, Thursday Sea World and, Friday San Diego Zoo, Saturday & Sunday hanging out with some great family friends who came to hang out with us. Honestly five days & five parks maybe wasn’t the best idea with a three year old & a one year old (or us!), but they did do great. But they are wiped out!
Disneyland was AMAZING!!! It was so different doing it with children – we didn’t even ride one grown up ride, but it was SO fun in different ways. We woke the kids up (still they didn’t know where we were going) & gave Reese a princess costume to wear for the day. We told her she had to look like a princess to meet a princess & she guessed right away that we were going to Disneyland! I think she was more excited about the outfit but that soon changed as we headed to the park. Both Reese and Carter were in awe as we headed through the gates. From our first ride the kids were hooked. Carter called the rides ‘Wee’s’ and constantly said ‘More Wee, More Wee. More Wee’. It was cute. Both Reese and Carter sometimes are shy of characters and new situations so we weren’t sure how they would do when we started meeting the Disney characters. Our first encounter was with Pooh & Tigger. It was Sooooo cute to watch them. Cater walked right up to Tigger & said ‘Hi Tigga’ and hugged his leg. Reese went over & hugged Pooh like he was her long lost father, lasting a good 10 seconds. That was worth the whole day. We rode every ride in Fantasyland, spent countless hours at the Princess Faire listening to stories, meeting princess, and making crafts. The parades were also big hits. Lots of pointing & yelling and excitement. The days were exhausting but so memorable and fun!
We’ll blog more very soon about the other parks. We’re off to the beach tomorrow, then Disneyland on Wednesday to celebrate Reese’s 4th birthday. After that we start to pack up to head home. We’ll be in touch soon!
