And I know that I promised photos. Sorry, I’ve been slacking!
We’ve been back nearly 2 weeks and I’ve yet to get a blog post done. What’s worse, I had my laptop with me and could have been blogging all along. Like I said, sorry!
So, we took off for California on Memorial Day. I thought it was a great plan. I was wrong. We hit tons of traffic in Palm Springs. The traffic was even enough to talk me out of the required stop at the Coach outlet on the way out.
Tuesday we hit Disneyland right as it opened and did a Character Breakfast. If you are going to Disney, this is the way to see characters. They all came to the table and chatted (well, the ones that talk chatted) with the kids and took time for photos and autographs.
We spent the rest of the day at the park lasting until the early evening.
Wednesday, we went back bright and early. But, we didn’t stay long… Bethany was a mess this day. She didn’t get much sleep and wouldn’t ride on *anything*. I learned on this trip that while Bethany loves rides, she doesn’t like the ones that are inside and dark. She’ll gladly take on any roller coaster though.
After lunch, and naps, just the older 2 boys and I headed out. We hit California Adventures for a couple rides & cool Disney Mr. Potato-Head parts… then it was back to Disney. We didn’t mean to, but we didn’t end up making it back to the hotel until nearly 11 that night!
Thursday, we hit the beach… Newport Beach to be precise. The day was totally overcast, but very comfortable and the kids had a blast playing in the sand and surf.
Friday we went back to Disney for a long day of fun.
However, Friday hit me hard. I ended up getting sick on Friday night so Saturday I spent the day recovering. The kids and Brian enjoyed the pool and went to see How to Train Your Dragon at the Imax theater.
And Sunday we headed back home.
I *think* a good time was had by all. I know that I had fun.
