happiest place on earth

Oh. Hey there blog. I almost forgot about you. And you know what, that's OK with me. Because if being a mom has taught me anything its that there is an ebb and flow to things. And my job is to ride the wave as best I can. This last months wave was jam packed with activity. We went to the snow, celebrated Derick's birthday, and made a trip to Disneyland. For the most part I was too wrapped up in living it to take photos. But we did snap a few at the happiest place on earth. So here they are.

I downloaded the Disneyland Waits app for my phone, and Finn loved checking the wait times for all the rides.  Leo's favorite ride was the spinning teacups. He rode it twice.

Finn was a bit put off by Disneylands "dark rides". But he LOVED Autopia. He rode it three times.

Our main objective in coming to Disneyland was checking out Cars Land. It did not disappoint. We were some of the first in line for Radiator Springs Racers. Finn got to ride it twice, making him a very lucky boy.

Leo loved seeing all his favorite Cars characters, and though he wasn't too excited about waiting in line he was a very happy camper.

 After the excitement in Cars Land it became pretty obvious that our big guy was sick. Lethargic and feverish, Finn took the first nap I can remember in ages. Boo. But one nap, one PB&J, and one Tylenol later he was good (enough) to go.

We spent the rest of the day taking it easy. Finn and I learned how to draw Pluto, talked with Crush the turtle, and explored the Redwoods. Finn and Derick took advantage of the last bit of daylight with a raft ride down Grizzley Peak. We admired Cars Land by night, and called it a day.

A little character breakfast before we hit the road, this photo speaks volumes...
