It was bad. Not the entire day, but the beginning.
There was a tantrum. And, not of the normal variety. Upon saddling up and entering Main Street, Lainey lost her little 3 year old mind and threw a fit worthy of a complete stranger (or 12) videoing it with her phone.
And, while I would not like to re-live those 10 minutes of my life, I would like to know who cried first.
Lainey or me.
It was bad, yall. I refused to allow LC to use Jack's stroller seat for her kitties, and, all hell broke loose. For the record, I'm typically quite tolerant of her feline nurturing side. I load up the 'burb 20 minutes early so she can secure all of her kitties......put them in seat belts....cover them and pass out snacks as needed......etc, etc. But, I will not condone her shunning Jack in order to keep up this routine.
How dare I, right?
I dared. Caroline stood there with her head spinning wondering what on earth she could do to help and then once she noticed the woman RECORDING my nightmare, she stepped in front to block the footage. My sister has my back. I finally managed to buckle Lainey down and stormed through the crowds and out of sight eventually.
We know how to make an entrance, no?
And, all because of this precious, darling girl. Hard to believe.
We tried out a "new" ride......new to us......Peter Pan. Super cool. Carter and Caroline anxiously awaiting.....
We cruised around the park for a good portion of the day and then found the Rand family. Alisha doesn't know it, but I took this picture on the Toon Town Coaster.
So great seeing them and in such a fun venue!
Jack and Haylee....
Caroline ran into her principal at the park, who informed us of her students......all the way from Texas......performing at Disneyland that day. Small world.
Snapped a quick picture.
Lainey has a new BFF. Grace. They are so cute together.
Kiddos. Such a motley crew.
Ran into Mary Poppins and Bert. Upon signing the book, Mary was searching for "Carter" who signed the princess book several times before her. She wanted to have a word with him.
LC led our group. In more ways than one.
Caroline sat down with the kids for dinner and then treated them to Mickey shaped beignets in our favorite restaurant, The French Market.
An attempt at a group pic.......the Starnes fam + the Rand fam. Jack slid out of the picture just in time. Turkey.
Haunted Mansion! Caroline and the punks acting scared.....
My sweet Carolines.
Bryan braved the tea cups with the kids.
Haylee and Laine.
Saw Mickey on the way out.
The tram ride back to the car. There's Lainey, still taking care of her kitties. Such a good mama.
We're exhausted today. Just a few things on the agenda - with kids in school - and then dinner tonight with Alisha and family. Loving Spring Break!
