Disneyland {Last post, I promise}

Well, it’s been nearly four weeks since we left for Disneyland.

It’s officially time for me to wrap up the photos.

{And also to admit that I suck at blogging. But that’s another story}


So. Day Two, we headed on over to California Adventure.

 California Screamin’ was a big hit 🙂

The girls {and really, everyone, loved it!}


California Adventure seemed so much less . . . chaotic than Disneyland.

I don’t know if there truly were fewer people, or if the pathways are wider, or what. 

But you could actually walk from ride to ride and *not* feel like cattle being herded around.

You could find a spot to sit and eat during lunch time.

It was kind of a breath of fresh air.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disneyland.

As far as magic goes, that’s my favorite place to be.

But I’m a country girl.

I like it quiet.

I like it peaceful.

And I get a liiiiiiitle nervous when I’m stuck in the middle of enormous crowds of people.


Tay and I did quite a bit of wandering off on our own.

There were a lot of rides she just couldn’t go on,

and I didn’t think it was fair for her to have to watch while everyone else waited in their hour-long lines for a ride.

So we went off exploring 🙂


And it worked great because we got to see a lot that the others didn’t get to see.


We managed to get fast passes to ride Radiator Springs Racers on our final day.

It may very well have been my favorite ride.


We traveled a lot back and forth between the two parks trying to make sure we got to see and do everything we wanted.

The last time we were at Disneyland we had a 5-day park hopper pass, and this time we were only there for 3 days,

so planning our days was a must.


We spent a little time back at Disneyland on our third day.


And when evening grew near, we were sad to say goodbye.


But we still had half a day of shopping in Downtown Disney to look forward to.

That eased our pain a little.


And now, I’ve officially decided to become a travel photographer 😉

That way I can follow everyone else along on their vacations, capturing their sweet memories!

Sounds like heaven to me!

Disney, Day 2

Our second day of vacation, was our first day at Disneyland 😉

It started bright and early, of course, because the park opened at 8, and we were in a hurry to get there.

Even my sleeper-inners were wide awake in time.


Poor Jerm missed the Minnie shirt memo.


Sierra made a bee-line for Splash Mountain.  Her most favorite Disneyland ride.

I stayed back with Tay and took pictures 🙂


Then Tay and I wound up on our own for a bit, so we explored Toon Town, and met some special “people”.


And we met up with the sissies just in time to visit with Mickey!


I made Kam an appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique that afternoon.

To say she LOVED it is a severe understatement.

I think she could’ve stayed and been pampered all day.


My sweet little princess girl.



I love the parade. 


It’s so magical to me.


My girls love it too.  Kam waved to EVERY single princess.


Sissy and Uncle Josh braved the rides together.


This little princess is a crazy flyer!



Miss Tay, sweet girl, she loved the carousel.



Ahhh, Churros. 

We had to budget for them before we even left for vacation.





Winding down.  Sleepy girls after a full day at the happiest place on earth.
