Thanks for the help with entertaining ideas! Can't wait to see everyone. 11 days until Caroline arrives. Not sure who is most excited......me, Blake, kids or Batman?
We're planning on two days at Disneyland and California Adventure. Caroline loves the parks as much as I do. Might stay overnight in Santa Monica and explore more of Orange County and L.A. Lots to do!
A week or so ago, I took the punks to meet Jack's girlfriend, Rylee + family at Disneyland.
Wonder if it's time to buy Jack the big boy hat since he's still wearing his "baby" Mickey ears we bought in 2006?
Jelly Cat adorned Carter's ears. He was on Space Mountain (fast, indoor coaster), so we stayed entertained outside taking pictures and hanging out.
Then, she got a piggy back ride. Jelly Cat has replaced Meow Meow. Don't tell her.
Carter is a collector. Bakugan, pressed pennies, Star Wars figures, etc. His latest obsession is the Vinylmations. Each is created by a famous artist and tells a story. You buy them in the park (or online) and then you can trade at Disney shops within the grounds. Pretty cool.
We're not buying him that big one. The little ones cost $12 each! Not even going to ask the price. He'll probably ask Pa for it the next time he's here.
Cruella de Vil was fantastic. One of our best character experiences yet.
She teased Lainey about making Jelly Cat into a hat. Cute. And, a little disturbing. Like Disney.
My sweet friend, Allison and her bebe, Cailyn.
For Caroline........one of our favorites.....Jungle Cruise!
Alisha gave Lainey this darling necklace........she wears it each time we go!
The happy couple......Jack and Rylee.
And......that's a wrap. Got rained out, so we headed home. Such a nice perk of having passes......no need to stay!
Back up to Carter's fabulous field trip. Here was his departure. Hugging the punks. Then, he set out for San Juan Capistrano where they visited a Mission and then stayed overnight in a cabin at the Lazy W Ranch. Learned about how the original California settlers lived. Awesome.
My biggest boy. Today, I'll register my middle child for Kindergarten. Not sure how we all got here.......seems like Blake and I were just married not long ago! 11 years in May.
Jack-a-roo at the beach........so happy.
We went pre-storm. Beautiful.
Kids are learning about all things oceanic.
Jack seems most interested.
A friendly game of football.......Daddy + kids while I read. Lovely.
Can you imagine what lunatics we'll be here over the summer if we spend so much time on the beach now?! I can't wait.
Jelly Cat has a new friend. Meet Sally. My mom made Lainey this monkey when she was born. She just rediscovered it.
It hailed here a few weeks ago. Californians were out taking pictures and stood fascinated with the ice. Our cold weather babies loved it, too.
Massive, isn't it? No judgment........we were the same way prior to living in Colorado and Kansas City.
That's all I got, folks. Time to wrangle some kids.
Now, go over to Lindsay's blog and enter her giveaway. Super cute pillows!
