Our life as a family of 5!

Saturday, April 26, 2008


Wenesday night we returned from a 5day trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. Disneyland! My parents took all 9 of us. It was so much fun.

The trip started out Saturday morning at 4:30am with snow on our cars. Madison got sick on the flight there and had a fever for the next 24hrs. (this is our 3rd vacation she has been sick on) She looks pretty punky in some of the beginning pics. Not a fun way to start but it turned out ok. Luckily she slept fairly well between the stroller and the ergo carrier we borrowed from Dara.

The park was packed the first say but got a bit slower as the week went on.
Madison' first character experience was Buzz Lightyear. I walked up to him to get a picture and he reached his hand out to her. She shrieked and slapped it away then proceeded to scream for the picture. She did the same at our character breakfast when Gipetto walked behind her to sit next to Haley. Minnie Mouse, Chip & Dale, and Alice finally won her over. Although she was still happier to watch them from a distance.

Our favorite thing we saw was the Playhouse Disney show in California Adventure. It was a show with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, My Friends Tigger and Pooh, Handy Manny, and Little Einsteins. Madison knew who they all were ,danced to the music, and patted her lap for Rocket(those who have seen it know what I am talking about). It was so cute to see her light up. She also loved all the parades. She would just stare as they went by. She also loved most of the rides we took her on. Especially if they had animals. Every time she would see or hear something that remotely sounded like a bird she would do her tweet tweet sign. So cute!
Overall it was a great trip. We were all exhausted and ready to be home though.

Enjoy the pics. This is only a fraction of the over 300 I took.
