I'm Going to Disneyland!!!

On Friday, March 6th I decided that I needed to get away.  Not from my kids but from home.  I have been wanting to take the kids to Disneyland for quite some time but Dave and I have been in a money saving mode.  But that Friday I cracked and by Sunday evening we were off to Disneyland.  On the way there I started having second thoughts.  We took our kids to Disneyland three years ago when they were 5, 3, and 8 months and we swore we would not be back for at least another 5 years.  But I couldn't wait that long.  They're not going to be young forever.  Well, I must say that the trip went great!  No wining, no complaining, no overly tired kids asking to be held while you waited in line.  All four of them did great!  

In fact the only setback was me.  I woke up at 4 a.m. Monday morning with what felt like the stomach flu.  I was so bummed and so sick.  I was determined to make it though, what choice did I have.  Dave gave me a blessing and off we went.  I held up pretty good.  In fact it felt like I was pregnant.  No, I'm not.  I just had that sick to my stomach nauseated feeling but I knew I had to keep going.  Just like when you are pregnant.  Well, I made it through the day but the minute we got back to the hotel I started feeling terrible again and by 1 a.m I finally tossed my cookies.  And on that note...enjoy the pictures!

I think I've mentioned a time or two on my blog about what a good baby Ella is.  Well, Disneyland was no different.  We debated leaving her with my sister but I'm so glad she came.  What a sweet baby girl!   
The teacups, it's a family favorite.

I love Disneyland!! We went in November.

A few years ago we went and Katie got the flu, That is the worst time/place to get sick! We had to take turns staying with her in the hotel, I felt so bad for her.

I'm so jealous!! The last time I was at Disneyland was exactly 10 years ago. That's stinky though about your stomach bug. Blegh. Good luck with the laundry!

Oh, I was also going to say that you look like a babe in the picture with the kids. I can't even tell that you wanted to upchuck. Seriously...

I'm so jealous! I was just talking to my parents yesterday about going next year to Disneyland for Hailey's birthday. I'm so glad you guys went and had a good time. I'm sorry you weren't feeling well, but overall it looks like you all had a great time. Glad to hear you're doing well. We miss you guys! Take care-talk to you soon.

Fun!!! We went a month ago and the boys had a blast! It's kind of stressful as a mom, but totally worth seeing the looks on their faces throughout the day!
Hope all is well!

How fun! We LOVE Disneyland at our house and Parker is obsessed with Mickey Mouse... we are hoping to go next Fall sometime. Glad to hear that Ella did well seeing that she's only a month older than Emmie. Your kids are adorable and you DO look super cute in that pic like someone else said! :)
As for the laundry.... Ughhh! Thats all I can say.
