Disneyland!!!!

Ahhh...Disneyland! I just love it! I grew up about twenty minutes from there and we went so often that I will probably never need a map of the place. It makes me sad that we live so far away from it that my kids have never experienced ALL of it. We are always rushing to try and fit it into one day...impossible! We keep saying that someday we are going to go and stay at the Disney Hotel and have a total Disney vacation...someday. In the meantime we are so thankful that we were able to spend at least one day there!

Mad Hatter hats were everywhere and Emily choose this Mickey inspired one instead of ears. When I asked her to smile pretty so I could send a good picture to her dad, this is the grin I got. You gotta love her!

I was certain that KayLi would not want to ride anything but I couldn't have been more wrong! She LOVED the rides! The "Big Cups" was one of her favorites.

It was awesome to spend a week with my brother and his family and they always make Disney so fun! I miss them :0(

Emily wanted to be independent and fly solo on Dumbo.

KayLi LOVED the "Elephants!" I still can't believe how much she loved the rides. She even rode a pretty scary little roller coaster in Toon Town and The Pirates of the Caribbean!

This is the same child who had a MAJOR melt down on a super small carousel in China!

My brother is the photographer in our family (I missed that gene) and he got this great shot of Will! I love his expression and the action of the shot!

The lines at Disney are always long, even on a Monday but we tried to have a little fun.

But some lines were longer than others.

Taylor was such a trooper and stuck it out all day long. We all fell head over heals for this sweet baby!

KayLi couldn't resist Emily's lovely hat!

The lines to see Mickey & Minnie were way more than we could handle, so we were thrilled when Goofy made a random appearance!

KayLi did sooooo much better than I expected. I honestly thought I was going to have to spend some down time in a room on Main Street that is set aside for nursing mothers. She did awesome! I really shouldn't have worried at all. The only thing that freaked her out were the fireworks. Taylor and KayLi had fallen asleep in their strollers, so my mom volunteered to sit with them while we rode a couple faster rides. We thought the fireworks started at ten but they started at 9:30. So they woke both the little ones up and no mommies where there...my poor mom. She ended up with two crying granddaughters and was practically in tears herself when we got to them. KayLi hugged me so tight when I picked her up and said "I happy to see you!" So sweet! She was fine the rest of the evening. The next day, after we slept in way too late, I asked her if she liked Disneyland. She replied "More Disneyland, please." I wish!

KayLi is my kind of amusement park girl!
And I think that Emily and my Caleb must be going to the same "smiling" school.
Someday when Kylie gets over her fear of "stand up animals" we'll make our Disney rounds too! Can't wait!!!
