Early May

In early May we celebrated a late Easter at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Olivia was a champion egg gatherer, she also did a great job sharing them with her cousins and brothers who weren’t as fast.
Playing in the yard. I was so thankful for warmer weather so the kids could go out and play and get out some energy.

We bought a membership to Thanksgiving Point, they have great activities on Monday nights, including having the horses out for the kids to ride.

Vacation Day 6

Day 6 we decided to do each of our favorite rides at Disneyland one last time plus we tried the Storybook boats, we like the Casey Jr train way better! We rode the boats then It’s a Small World, then Roger Rabbit and then Zachary decided he just HAD to meet Mickey Mouse even thought the day before he cried and wanted nothing to do with him, this time it went much better! Then we rode Buzz Lightyear and that time Zachary nearly beat me, I guess the best best strategy is too just randomly shoot the “gun” at things. We got Fastpasses for Space Mountain and then rode Zachary’s Pirates of the Caribbean one last time. After getting me a very yummy pineapple ice cream, Rob and Olivia rode Space Mountain and by then the park was getting crowded so we said goodbye and headed back to the hotel.

All of us with Mickey.

After lunch and packing and naps we headed to the beach since the weather was beautiful, it was a little windy and cooler then Monday but nice enough for us! The kids had a great time building a sand castle and playing with the seaweed. This time there were hardly any shells but still lots of seagulls to chase!

Camera cases are so much fun to chew on.

Day 5 we started by riding Winnie the Pooh and Rob and Olivia rode Big Thunder Mountain Railroad again, then we ran into Pocahontas while walking over to Fantasyland. She was super cute and showed Olivia where Mecco was up in the trees. The boys and I waited while Rob and Olivia rode Space Mountain, which Olivia LOVED! Then the big kids and I “drove” on Autopia twice so that both kids could sit behind the steering wheel. I learned that I hope Rob is the one to teach them how to drive a real car, it was a jerky ride! After some lunch over in California Adventure, we watched the Playhouse Disney show and the Drawn to the Magic show, then it started to sprinkle so we headed back to the hotel for some naps! That night we rode the monorail over to Downtown Disney where we checked out the Lego store and made two new friends at Build a Bear.
