Surprise!!!! We are going to Disneyland!!!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

I have always wanted to go to Disneyland and now was my chance.  Our friends the Christensens told us they were planning a trip there and wanted us to go with them so we decided why not.  None of our kids new we were going until the morning that we left.  We had a little gift bag with Mickey Mouse Pictures all over them with a note telling them we were going.  Gavin and Olivia were speechless for a while and finally Gavin said "like right now, we are going to Disneyland right now".  They were so excited they started running all over to pack bags that I had already packed for them.  This vacation was so much fun.  It was fun just watching the kids on all of the rides and meeting all of the characters and getting there autographs.  Surprisingly all of the kids were super good.  Ashton even had a blast there.  He got to go on a lot of the rides with us and loved seeing most of the characters.  We all want to go back there again it was so much fun.  I had a hard time choosing which pictures to put on so there a quite a few, so enjoy!!!

                                               All of the kids waiting to get on the airplane.
                                                             Getting ready to take off.
 I love the coast, it was the kids first time seeing it, so even though it was chilly they still got in the water and enjoyed playing in the sand.

 Olivia loved meeting the princess'.  We had seen a few and she got a little sad and said " but mom I didn't get to see Belle".  When we walked around the corner there she was her favorite princess Belle.  He jaw dropped and she said "mom, it really is her, it's Belle!!!!"

                           I am not sure who is having more fun on the carousel, Burgess or Olivia??

 The one thing Gavin wanted to do was to be in the Jedi training.  He finally got his chance and was the first person picked to go up there.  As he was walking up he had the biggest grin on his face.  He looked over at me and gave me a big thumbs up. It was so fun watching him fight Darth Vader and learning how to use the light saber.  At the end they got a certificate for becoming a Padwon.  He now thinks that he is a real Jedi warrior, and that when they need help fighting Darth Vader again they will send the space craft to come and get him.
