Disneyland

WOW! Its so hard to believe three wonderful, amazing, challenging, BLESSED, years have almost gone by since the quads were born. To celebrate, we took the quads to "The Magical Kingdom", Disneyland, for their 3rd Birthday! We couldnt have asked for a better day. The weather was sunny but cool. The crowds werent to bad and we didnt have a SINGLE MELT DOWN the whole day! Of course, the awesome help from Gramma Ginny and Papa Paul went a long way in keeping the kiddos away from the grumpys. We had a blast and cant wait for our next opportunity to go see Mickey, Minnie and the gang at Disneyland.


Hailey took a while to warm up and we got her on Peter Pan and the carousel, but was not interested in riding the Dumbo ride. She finally got into the groove of things after lunch.

Daddy and Hailey on the train too. (Pre warm-up for Hailey)

I love seeing the looks of awe and amazement as they take in new sights and sounds. We were going through the mouth of the whale on the Storyland Canal boat ride and Dylan was just taking it all in.

Here's Hailey with that same kind of look of amazement in Goofy's Playhouse.

Papa and Dylan on the Jungle Cruise. Dylan gets startled very easily and the piranha's got him good on this ride as they came up out of the water.

Brooklyn, Connor, Hailey and Gramma Ginny excited to get to the jungle animals.

Everyone of course LOVED "It's a Small World".

We went on the roller coaster in Toon Town and ALL the kids LOVED it. Connor is the one who led the way onto this ride and then when we got close told Gramma he didnt want to go anymore. He did, and he loved it. I think we just might have some adventurous, adrenaline junkies on our hands. Especially Brooklyn. (Take after Daddy AND Mommy!)

After visiting Nemo on the submarines we decided to call it a day. Connor had other ideas and wanted to keep going. He kept say "See more, Mommy, see more." After strapping him in the stroller and walking about 15 feet, he was out cold. Evidence of a fun-filled, happy day.

I'm actually writing this a few weeks after we went, and the kids are still talking about all they did and saw at Disneyland. The other day at nap the kiddos were singing the theme song to the Pirates of the Carribean. So cute!
