The Great Mouse Adventure

Emily and I, along with Savannah and Erica just had the MOST EXCITING TIME EVER! We spent two days at Disneyland for the cousin adventure. The girls knew there was an adventure coming up and they knew they were going to stay in a hotel but they didn't know anything else.  

Emily told me she hoped it would be at Top It Off Yogurt (Hummm.  Maybe we could have saved a bit of money . . . ) but after we told the girls our destination they were more excited than any large yogurt with candy bar toppings could ever make them.

Here are the girls on the first big day for the obligatory castle photo.

We were lucky enough to get photos with nearly every princess!

Savannah and Emily were such good sports.  Erica and I are kind of, well, Disney Nazis.  We wanted to be sure we got to do everything, see it all, and pack as much Disney in as we could stand.  The first day we left the hotel at 7:30 and arrived back after 9:30.  (The girls are watching fireworks in this photo.)  

The next day we left at the same time, went back to the hotel for a few hours in the afternoon for a nap that they didn't want so we ended up swimming for a few hours instead.  Then we all went back until - ready - 11:30!  We were so, so tired at the end of the second day and honestly, we're still recovering.  

The next morning we took the girls straight from bed to the car and left before the sun went up.  Erica and I thought the drive might be more enjoyable if we could drive most of the way while the girls were still knocked out.  Here are some action shots of the girls saying good bye to Anaheim as the sun went up.  

We are looking forward to the next cousin adventure when Molly and Carolina turn 5!  It's a good thing that's not for a little while.

Looks like you had lots of fun! We're really excited to have our own Mouse Adventure next week. I might copy the fireworks shot...that is pretty artsy for me. (Just a point and shoot kind of gal) We'll see if I can do as well as you.

How fun! I guess it might not be as big a surprise for Molly though...Maybe by then you can get Emily to be a "partner" in keeping the secret for you. We plan on going when Olivia is 40 inches (tall enough for all the rides). Elizabeth was 4 when she was 40 inches, so probably in two springs. Elizabeth will be 7. We plan on leaving Vincent (and any other children we have-no announcement) home and only taking the ones who are big enough. Then when Vincent and baby 4-no announcement- are big enough, we'll take all four-assuming we get to 4 kids.

Oh, and by the way, I was starting to wonder what happened to you....You hadn't blogged in a long time. What else happened?
