The day after graduation, we were OFF on a much needed family vacation and we went to Disneyland! The girls talked and talked about it for months. Of course, the main talk was about seeing the princess castle and meeting the princesses. Kai really loves Ariel and was just so excited to see her. They really had no idea what to expect and Austin and I were so excited to take them. Grosi, Vati, Jesse, Tara, Bella, and JJ drove from Utah and we all met up at the Hotel.
It was a faced paced, busy 3 days and we all had an amazing time! The kids were so happy and just had the time of their little lives. I post A LOT of pictures (hope your happy, Mom), along with descriptions of where we were and what we were doing.
This is the group! We loved being with all of them and it was fun to have Bella, Tyler and Kai together.
This was the rafting ride in Disneyland. I especially liked this ride because we could all go, even JJ! This ride was all powered by us... no motor, no track.. just our own rowing speed, and we had a lot of children in our canoe. It was a nice arm workout, that is for sure!
The roller coaster in Toon Town. Tyler really wanted to go on a roller coaster, so this made her especially happy. Kai was pretty excited, but during the ride she was scared and nervous, so she didn't want to go again, but Tyler went a second time with Austin.
Grosi brought all these fun Disney books, so the girls could read lots of Disney stories to go along with their Disney fun!
This was our first evening at Disneyland, shortly after we got there. We went to Goofy's Kitchen Restaurant for dinner. The dinner was so much fun because we saw so many Disney characters during dinner. They come right up to your table and dance, blow kisses, give hugs... the girls just LOVED this dinner.
It's a small world after all! The three girls enjoying it's a small world ride. I think they look so cute holding on and watching all the dancing figures.
Waiting in line for it's a small world ride.
Austin got this special treat for having just graduated!
Tyler really loves Mini Mouse, and she was the very first Disney Character we saw. She held Tyler's hand and skipped her to our table where we were going to sit for dinner, it was so adorable.
Do you notice Austin?
Tyler with her Grosi and Grosvati.
Mary Poppins was one of Grosi's favorite characters we saw, so she wanted a picture too.
This is Kai coloring a picture for Sleeping Beauty. She was very serious about the picture and worked hard on it during the meal, then Sleeping Beauty came back to our table to get it from Kai.
And the Princess visiting/pictures begin... al their favorites.
And Kai's favorite moment of Disneyland... meeting Ariel. Just notice how tall and proud Kai is standing next to her... SO stinknin cute!!
Lunch at Ariel's Grotto.
At the ropes course at Disney Adventure. A place that the kids played for a very long time and really enjoyed.
The next few pictures are from Cali Adventure in Bug's Life world.
THE princess castle!
Love for the Grosi!
This was our bed in the hotel. The headboard lit up and sang a song. It was very fun and the girls really loved it. They feel asleep to the "nightlight" of the lights.
