A Saturday Trip to Disneyland

With the Daddies away on a church Men's Retreat, what better way to spend the day then going to Disneyland with friends! We were able to all fit in my minivan this trip down as both Daddies and an older brother were away for the weekend, and we had such fun riding together! It especially made the drive home late at night more enjoyable being able to chat with an adult while all the kids were fast asleep in the back seats.

Our afternoon started off kinda bumpy when Rachel fell and landed head first onto the concrete sidewalk. This happened right after getting off the tram, before we'd even gotten to the security checkpoints. We had to go into a nearby cafe to ask for a baggie of ice. Her bump actually doesn't look too bad in this picture. LOL. Check out Rachel's apple, do you see what we saw?? She did this all on her own, truly her mother's daughter. A couple of weeks ago, she started wandering around the house with the cutest phrase "Hey Cowboy", complete with the cutest of accents. We had no idea where she'd picked this up from, until one day she watching Toy Story II and I realized Jesse says it. She was so excited to see Jesse today.Despite the heavy Saturday crowds, we had a really great day and had lots of fun!

I found your page through Your little girl is beautiful. My daughter was born over the summer with a unilateral cleft lip/palate. She had her first surgery just over a month ago and is doing great. Her palate surgery is scheduled on 12/10. Check out our blog at
