So Cal trip, Part II

You'll understand the delay in this post when you see the massive amount of photos I have from the girls' first magical trip to DISNEYLAND!!! We were so grateful to be able to stay with Uncle Smylie who happens to live mere minutes from the park, making it easy to explore Downtown Disney one day and Disneyland the next. And best of all, Grandma Carol was in on the fun! The kids are at a perfect age to really experience the magic of a fantasy world come to life and the whole day was pretty much perfect.

Downtown Disney:

Having fun at the Lego store
These are for Little Mister C who LOVES Star Wars

The girls thoroughly enjoyed their first Build A Bear experience. Thanks Grandma Carol!

Lucy loves her Snow White puppy!


Maryn's favorite ride was Dumbo beacause she got to "soar." We rode this at least 3 times.

Aunt Betty and cousin Colette met us at Disneyland. Colette has twin boys that were born 4 days after Maryn - we call them the triplets:

Maryn and JJ rode Big Thunder Mountain
This is Lucy dancing during the parade on Main Street.
So impressed by Colette's ability to carry two 4 year olds!

Maryn got to drive!!! Scary :)

Lucy was plumb tuckered out as we waited for the tram to the car

The celebratory toast - we survived Disneyland!!

How fun to live vicariously through your two Disney days! I especially loved the video, you and your beautiful girls were so cute in the teacup! Love you, friend!

I loved going to Disneyland with you guys. Let's do it again. The slightly rainy day was perfect. Great post Jess.

Your pictures of LEGO brought back great memories for me. I use to work at LEGO right above the model builders - that LEGO Indian Jones was built while I worked there. Looks like the kids had fun :)
