We have been busy lately but the most exciting thing that we have been doing is playing in DISNEY LAND! :) Jeff and I were going to go on a cruise or do something a little more adult but nothing ever seemed to work out. So we found ourselves booking a trip to Disneyland. It. Was. So. Worth. It!!! Not that is wasn't a lot of work, but we had a great time!
We left on the second at 5:00 a.m., I was a little worried how the girls would react to that so I had put them to bed at 6:00 p.m. and they were champs!
We got to the Orange County airport and got our rental car and headed straight for Disney to meet our good friends (and cousins)...(thank you guys SOOOO much for 1. letting us bum in on your trip, and 2. for the GREAT discounts!) We spent three days in Disney...it was in the 90's those three days and humid! BLAH, we were all a sweaty mess. We were able to see all the princesses and a lot of the other characters. We went to the Aladdin show which was AWESOME and we saw the Playhouse Disney show. I think that was where we knew we had made the right decision by going on this trip. Morgan was dancing and singing and loving every minute of the show. I think everything was so magical for her! We couldn't decide what we would get her from Disneyland, if anything at all. But we found seven little princess figurines and she held on to the box of them the entire last day. (we wouldn't let her open it until we were in the car, we are mean, I know. :) ) The last day after we got in the car she said "this was the BEST DAY EVER!" SO cute! (these pictures are not in order and I was to lazy to fix them! :) )
"Where all your dreams come true!" :) Morgan was so excited...I think maybe I was a little more excited for her to meet Cinderella!
It was so nice, the first day we walked in and there was Mickey and Goofy and a tiny line! Perfect timing!!!
On Saturday we went to Sea World with our same friends of some of our other great friends, Danny and Erin, who used to live in Utah. It was fun but we were SO TIRED that we left after only half a day. Morgan just kept asking to go home! haha So we went to Danny and Erin's house and Jeff and Danny dropped us off as fast as they could and went to start watching the BYU game (via Tivo :) ). Erin and I hung out with the kids (I got to meet their new son for the first time! He is 1 1/2 and ADORABLE and I COMPLETELY forgot to take pictures of all of us!) It was so much fun to catch up.
We went to church with them the next day and ate a delicious dinner and played CANASTA! We used to get together with these guys every Sunday and play for hours. We had such a fun time!!! Then we headed back to L.A. We got to visit with Jeff's Aunt and Uncle and talked all about the game. They are so much fun to talk to. The next morning we headed back to the airport and Morgan just kept saying she didn't want to go home she wanted to go to Disneyland. :)
It was such a fun trip and we weren't ready to come home but we are SO glad we were able to go. The girls did great there were only two meltdowns. Whitney did awesome. It was so nice to spend so much time with Jeff and with all of our friends. We hope we get to see everyone again soon!
I asked Morgan what her favorite part was she said, her princess dolls. :)
I asked her what her favorite ride was, Dumbo
I asked her who her favorite princess was, Cinderella....surprise! :) haha
I have to give a big shout out to Jeff. It was my birthday a few weeks ago and he did a GREAT job! He bought me a chocolate fountain and set it up and bought a bunch of stuff to put in the chocolate and invited a bunch of people over for cake and chocolate fountain! :) He worked so hard to put it all together and it was a big surprise for me :) Thanks Love! I LOVE YOU SOOOO much!
We just found this picture and I had to post it, I don't remember which birthday this was for Jeff but he always said he wanted a cake made of big mac's. :)
