Happy Halloween!

I hope you have a great Halloween! We're headed to the beach this morning and then later today we will be going to the Halloween party in Disneyland! We've seen the awesome costumes and can't wait to see what kind of treats they hand out to the kids. We hope to hit the road early tomorrow to avoid traffic. Looking forward to being in my own bed where kids don't jump on the beds above me. Next time I will request a third floor room!

Day three

Today is day four and I'm currently waiting in a very long line for radiator springs! It's an awesome ride and were excited to try to again. Erik is unsure of any ride he cannot see from the outside. Maybe we shouldn't have put him on tower of terror. Oops. We didn't race out of the hotel this morning -- it was nice to just chill out. We are still having fun and loving our time here at the happiest place on earth.

Day two was awesome!!

We put a pool noodle under the fitted sheet so the boys would not kick rah other all night! It's been working great. We came back to the hotel last night to find the maid had stacked their pillows and blankets so sweetly!
It's important to celebrate a good day!!

Day one in Disneyland down

It took us the entire eight hours to get to get to Anaheim. We were hoping for seven or six and a half. Oh well. The last hour we just sat in traffic in Los Angeles. But we got here. We're staying right across the street from Disneyland at the best western. We arrived, unpacked, put our warmer clothes on, ate a picnic dinner and then we headed to Disneyland around 5:15. It is so beautifully decorated! Our first ride was the Matterhorn, then nemo, star tours, buzz, Indiana, jungle cruise, splash mountain (twice- they asked if we wanted to go again!!), winnie-the-pooh and we ended the evening with pirates. 

We got back to our hotel at midnight! We stayed 15 minutes till closing!! We are finally getting ready to head over now. For the rest of the week the park closes at 8-- I am so grateful!! We have tickets on Thursday to Mickey's Halloween party!!
I am so grateful for this trip!!

Not going to the beach after all...

We're going to Disneyland!! Pedar and I just stopped in Westley to use the bathroom and I put Disney jackolanterns on their seats!! They are stunned. We told them yesterday that we were going to the beach for the night. I had to come up with some excuse for all the packing. We got in the car around 8:30 and we only have about four more hours to go! Pedar and I have been holding on to this secret for about two months. We always planned on using some of the money from the sale of oxbow for a trip. It's hard not to use every last dollar on the house, but I am so glad we are going on this vacation!! Yahoo!!!
