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.
