We love our Disneyland trips! Emma decided that she would like to have a Harry Potter friend birthday party for her birthday, so we decided we would take our February Disney trip on my birthday weekend. I just love being there with the mouse on my special day! I love that you get a celebrating button and that all of the workers wish you happy birthday by name! Disney truly is the happiest place to spend your birthday . . . even if you are turning 33 years old. I feel so ancient these days, and I know I am a youngin' still, but the 4 babies in 10 years thing is taking its toll on my body and I am always tired lately.
Still, we managed to do Disneyland from about 8 pm - midnight on Friday. Then we got back to the park at about 10 am on Saturday (later than I wanted but we were pooped and slept in) and stayed till about 8 pm. When we got back to the hotel, we put the babies and ourselves down for a nap. Em and Jonah stayed up and were glued to Disney Channel. I woke up again at about 9:45pm and sent Michael and the older two kids back to the park to play until close. Then we went back again for a few hours from about 9 am until 2 pm on Sunday. Phew! So tiring! I wish I had as much energy as my kids!!!
Here are some of our favorite pictures from this trip:
Meeting Donald - Megan was hitting his beak . . . lol
Meeting Goofy . . . the timing was right and we barely had to wait
MICKEY - My older kids are actually SMILING and you can see everyone's face in this picture - victory!
