Disneyland!!!

So a couple of months ago we heard from Bryce's brother Doug that they were going to Disneyland at the beginning of December. We told Logan that if he could stop sucking his thumb (he's 6), he could go to Disneyland. Amazingly, in a couple days, he was thumb-suckin' free (except in his sleep...which isn't really his fault cuz he doesn't know he's doing it. In fact, one morning he woke up with his thumb in his mouth and asked "Mom, does Dad stick my thumb in my mouth while I'm sleeping to trick me?" It was too funny.) He's done a great job keeping his thumb out during the day, so this last Wednesday, they headed to CA to spend the day at Disneyland on Thursday. It was a super cheap trip with gas prices low again, and a free place to stay with Kimberly's parents (thanks Davidsons!!). Marlee and I stayed home because Marlee wouldn't appreciate it anyway, and there's no way in heck I'd be walking around Disneyland at 6 1/2 months pregnant (I can barely walk through Walmart without my body paying for it for the next 3 days). They had the greatest time. In one part of Disneyland they had a Jedi training camp and then got to fight Darth Vader using their new jedi skills. :) I'll post video of that later. Logan's favorite ride was Space Mountain, and Landon's was the Buzz Lightyear ride.





On Friday morning they decided to visit the beach. The water was freezing from what I hear, but the weather beautiful and great for a beach day. They had such a fun time. I'm sad that I missed it, but hopefully we'll go again in a few years and we can all enjoy it together. It was fun to spend some one on one time with Marlee (even though she did walk around the house crying "find Daddy!"--she's such a daddy's girl). They all came home safely to me last night and it was good to have them home. Fun family times!

That's awesome that your boys got to do that. That does sound like a lot of fun, especially the affordability of it all. I forget that there are places in the world that still have warm weather. Lucky!

Disneyland is the best motivation for anything, don't you think? It looks like they had a great time. Growing up, I loved Space Mountain, too. I hope you're doing well and you're not going to Wal-Mart too much. :)

Thanks Nettie, I've been on your blog a time or two as well. I love how your kids are on the beach in December. Did they swim? My family has never been to Disney so maybe we will go soon. Oh, and I bought the wonder tee from Seagull last night. Its perfect!! I'm glad you told me about it.

Love the California pictures! Bummer you weren't there, but understandable. I went to Disneyland this year when I was almost 8 months preggo and I spent the whole day praying that it wouldn't put me into labor! :)

Sounds like fun! Good job Logan for giving up that habit! Thanks for the Christmas card, it was very cute! I didn't know you were the Enrichment Leader. Give me some ideas, I'm totally stuck.
