Sometimes being a military family has it's benefits. Like when Disneyland offers amazing discount passes. We decided to go to Disneyland with my Mom and Dad, and (most importantly to Miles and Isaac) Aunt Havala! We spent Wednesday afternoon in a beach house and just splashed in the waves, built a sand castle, searched out crabs and starfish, and lay in the sun. Cold waves, warm sun, any chance everyone I love will move with me to Southern California???
We woke-up early the next morning and headed to Disneyland. I know that I am just a big kid but I still think that what Walt Disney built is the happiest place on earth. Highlights of this trip were. For Isaac meeting "mouse" and having a magical moment. He even cried when it was all over. He also loved getting a drivers license and putting around autopia. Miles was thrilled to meet Tink (three times). He really loves Tinkerbell!!!! He also got to ride splash mountain and says it is his favorite although he doesn't want to ride it again "until I pass the age of six." He also was chosen to train with a Jedi master and fight Darth Vader. He was in heaven. His expression in the photos doesn't really capture his excitement; he has been signing the theme song and totting his "light saver" with him ever since. Michael and I got to spend a little more time this trip together because we had six extra hands. Thanks Mom Dad and Havala. I will treasure these vacation memories we made together for a long time to come.
