Disneyland 2009

A couple of months ago we decided to go to Disneyland for five days and had a blast! We went with the Thomas's, Rowland's, and Steven's. There were six kids between the ages of 3 and 7 and they all did great and had a ton of fun. Annie and I both left our little ones home we missed them but it was much easier and relaxing without them. We stayed a couple of blocks from Disneyland at the Hampton Inn and Suites. It was great we had a free yummy hot breakfast every morning and a cute little lady would come along and let us know what was going on in the parks for the day and let us know which things were must sees along with the times. The highlight of the trip for the girls was the princess meet and greet lunch and for Colt and Connor was the Jedi training. This was Lauren's third time to Disneyland/Disneyworld and she still says her favorite ride is the 10 hour wait in line ride DUMBO! We had so much fun and can't wait for the next trip!

My sis Melissa and her husband Dave live in San Diego and were sweet enough to make the drive up to see us and have dinner. She is like 25 weeks prego in these pics and looks amazing! I am so glad we got to see them even if it was only for a couple hours!

The first day we got there was really the only free time we had so of course the kids had to swim!

We had a shuttle that picked us up and dropped us off in front of our hotel. It came every half hour or so and I swear every morning we would always just miss it. This is us just patiently waiting and where we would lather the kids in sunscreen. Also I thought I had pics of the L for California....NOPE it is now CAO.

Some of our fav rides and standing in line at the most magical place on earth!:)

We got to meet quite a few characters. On the first day within the first hour we ran into Buzz. This pic makes me laugh because Lauren normally LOVES any and all characters. For whatever reason she would no even look at Buzz. After that she was all about the characters she loved Sully from Monsters Inc.! This was also the first time to meet Tinker Bell and all her friends at Pixie Hollow which I thought was adorable!

More pics and rides!

This was the million dollar meet and greet princess lunch! Just kidding it was well worth it the girls got to talk, hug, and get pictures with all the princesses. Also, the food was delicious! Lauren is fickle with her favorite princess this day it happened to be Mulan who of couse was not there...maybe next time.

One of my favorite things was the parade at Disney on Main Street. This year's theme was celebrate so it was just a big party. When the parade stopped in front of us the girls got picked to go out and dance and do the conga with some of the workers and charcters...it was cute!

More pics of the group!
