What a day! We wanted to take the kids to Disneyland before the baby is born. We ended up going on the hottest day so far this year! 90 degrees and 8 months pregnant walking around Disneyland is not my idea of fun. But we do this stuff for our kids right?! This was Julia's first time there and we kept it a secret that we were going until the night before. She calls it Princessland and couldn't wait to see princesses and Mickey of course. She was a trooper and did great until after the World of Color show at California Adventure. It was an amazing show! But by about 10 pm she was pretty grouchy! One of my favorite parts of the day was waiting to have a picture with Winnie the Pooh and she wanted to tell him that she was getting a new baby. So sweet! She loved the tea cups and Soaring over California - not impressed with Pirates though. The boys and Mike rode some of the "bigger" rides like the Matterhorn & Space mountain. We had to split up and make sure that everyone got to do what they wanted. So this trip made me realize a few things about Disneyland:
*The happiest place on earth turns to the grouchiest place on earth once you've been there for 12 hours
*I do not want a season pass - why anyone would do that to themselves more than once every few years is beyond me
*3(almost 4) year olds cannot wait in a line longer than 45 min.
*When you finally get to the front of the line someone will have to go potty ( it might even be Mom!)
*sometimes the tram ride to the parking lot is the best ride of the day
*But... When it's all over the fun memories stay with you forever!

WOW! What a fun day - and yes, why anyone would do it often is beyond me - plus where's the magic then? Looks like everyone had a good time- especially the princess :)
