Get ready for a whole lot of random, folks!
First, my "check in" with Eat. Live. Be. for a better 2011. I'm officially at 11 pounds lost and feeling great! Enjoying the exercise and love walking on the beach more than anything. I also schooled Carter in a basketball game last night. Made him run laps because I won.
The Rand family came over for dinner while they were in town. I love having people over to our house.......perfect for entertaining!
The best shot I got of the adults......no complaints.....Carter was photographing.
Carter and Haylee. Such great kids.
Dinner on the patio! Artichoke spaghetti and cheese pizza. The evening stretched into some cocktails for the adults and the kids watching a movie. Just like old times. Love this family!
We were supposed to see Matthew McConohay at Jay Leno on Wednesday, but stayed home to be safe. Caroline wasn't feeling 100%. So, we dorked around the house and had a quiet day. Naps, too!
Thursday morning, I woke early to make green eggs for St. Patrick's Day. Only I ate them. Haters.
They were delish!
Afterwards, we visited Disneyland again. Planned on a short trip and did just that.
Caroline and I are officially obsessed with all things Disney-related. Have bought several books and are enjoying learning about the park and all the behind-the-scenes trivia.
Walt Disney had an apartment on site.....just above the fire house.
At night, they leave a lamp on in his honor. Love that.
We encountered another tantrum. This time, it was further into the park, but just as severe. This picture breaks my heart. I know I should be mad and at some point, I was, but to see her panicking like this brings out 2% frustration and 98% compassion from me. I hate to see my baby girl suffering and right or wrong.....she is.
Back to the Disney trivia. Feeling as though his single apartment wasn't large enough, he began construction on a larger one to share with his brother. Hidden within the blue scrolls are their initials in gold. Sadly, Walt died before seeing everything complete.
Club 33 is a very sought after private club in the park that members only can visit. I'm assuming it's all very Xanadu in there. Need to get on that list.
The group. Trying out a new restaurant. Pretty adventurous for us because Carter would have us eating clam chowder at the French Market with every visit if he could.
Look who has red hair now! Well, it's strawberry blonde-ish.......love!
Castle pic? Jack's less than interested.
Spying on Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and the Mad Hatter just beyond the moat.
We finally toured the castle. It's not open often.......very cool!
For Coco. You love it.
Blake showed up to spend the rest of the evening with us.
Love, love, love Disneyland. Carter, Caroline and I headed home, but Blake kept the little ones there to ride the monorail, the storybook ride and Buzz Lightyear. Such a good daddy.
On the agenda this week:
*Dr appointment today.
*Schedule Jack's 5 year old well check! (tears)
*Beach dinner with Holly and fam.
*Business meeting in La Jolla.
