Disneyland - 2011

So we took the kiddos to Disneyland as part of their birthday present again this year. We took advantage of the SoCal residents deal and went to California Adventure Saturday, then Disneyland on Sunday. The weather was horrible the days leading up and we thought we might have to cancel the Saturday trip and just go down to the hotel the night before. We got a little break in the storm at our house, checked out the weather down in Anaheim and decided to go for it. Turns out it was a good decision and we had clear skies the rest of the day. A little windy and FREEZING cold when the sun went down but we had a blast exploring Bugs Land and Pier Landing. It was our first time at California Adventure.

The next day we met up with Brittney, Gramma, Papa, Auntie Crissi, and cousin Matthew. (Cousin Caity was there too, but off with a friend for the day! Annie was with her school band and we got to watch her march down Main Street)

The kiddos were a little cranky due to the day before, but with lots of hands to help we had a wonderful day. Even made it to 8:00 at night! The Fantasy Land rides were, of course, a hit. LOVED Small World,(except Brittney, who REFUSED to go on) and they even braved the BIG ride, Matterhorn.

Snow Day in Oak Glen

We've been getting snow in the foothills behind our house and decided to take the kiddos up to Oak Glen to have some fun in the snow. The kids were super excited to get out in the snow and didn't mind the cold too much. We dont have any real snow gear and so they were just in their tennis shoes and mittens, which held up pretty good. The girls shoes are canvas, and so they were the first to call it quits,(their shoes were soaked) and I took them back to the car for some snacks. The boys were still having a blast with Daddy, who LOVES the snow.
