Brady's Big Boy Bed

One of our friend's gave us a toddler bed this weekend so we took down Brady's crib and moved him into a big boy bed! He loves it!! He was very tired last night after playing at a friend's house so he went to sleep right away. He woke up at 6:00 and came to our room. I told him it was still night-night time and he had to stay in bed until I got him up. He stayed there for about 20 minutes and then I got him up. Hopefully he'll go down okay at naptime! Our baby boy is growing up!!

Meeting the Characters

One of the highlights of our trip for Rayna was getting to meet some of the characters. We had to wait in line for about an hour to meet the princesses, but it was worth it! She was so cute when she got to meet them. She was also very excited about meeting Tinkerbell! Her absolute favorite though was Minnie Mouse! We got to see her a couple of times, along with Mickey. Brady loved to watch them, but did not want to get too close. I was able to get him close to Mickey since that was his favorite! We saw many other characters around, but didn't wait to get pictures with them. The kids were satisfied with just seeing them on the street!

Day 1

Our first day at Disneyland started off with some major rain showers. As soon as we got in the park it started to pour. Thankfully we had ponchos and umbrellas and it didn't last very long! It also made for less people in the park which was really nice. We did a few rides in Disneyland and then went over to California Adventure to watch a wonderful production of Aladdin and spent several hours in Bug Land. We stayed late that night to watch Fantasmic which the kids loved! Rayna did get tired and fell asleep on Cheri's lap before the show. She woke up though just in time to watch it.

Day 2

We spent most of day 2 in Disneyland and took the kids on almost every kid ride there. We also did several grown up rides too! There are some funny pictures of the kids passing the time while we waited in lines.

Day 3

We had an early Magic Morning on this day so we got to the park bright and early. We went on Nemo (the new submarine ride) and then got in line to visit Tinkerbell and her friends at Pixie Hollow. After that, we had a great day of going on tons of rides, visiting Toon Town, and enjoying the warm weather (it was in the 80's)!
