Last week my parents flew my siblings and all our families out to Disneyland. We were celebrating the big 30 for Nate, my brother Jeff, and sister-in-law Natalie (her birthday was the 7th). Happy Birthday Guys!
Sarah couldn't be happier!
Katelyn's Favorite ride was Alice in Wonderland Teacups and Sarah was rather elated during It's a Small World. My personal favorite is Space Mountain and you'll have to ask Nate which is his. Something tells me it wasn't waiting in line to meet Tinkerbell at Pixie Hollow but Katelyn sure loved it!
First of many Teacups Ride with Grandma and Mommy.
Who said Teacups are only for kids?
Hangin out with Uncle Marc
Can you tell Sarah was totally blowing me off...
The girls and I roughed the 6 hour car ride alone but it was great bonding time. Our portable DVD player went out in the first 10 minutes due to sticky fingers so we practiced our singing skills. I am not sure I followed the hands free law precisely with our GPS device but Sarah and Katelyn weren't quite ready for the navigating chair...
We arrived just in time to make the Ariel's Grotto feast with the Princesses. Let's just say we ate well on this trip. We had one breakfast w/ Minnie and Friends one morning, another in Goofy's Kitchen, and celebrated Natalie's 30th early at the Rainforest Cafe. We had a fancy dinner at a restaurant inside the Pirates of the Carribean ride called the Blue Bayou. Mmm...I recommend the Gumbo! At least we burned most of the extra calories by all the walking, carrying, and jostling we did in the parks.
Meeting the first Princess, Ariel!

"Bibbiddee Bobbeddee Boo" and I thought Fairy Godmother was a long name.
On our last night my parents took the youngest 6 granddaughters and sent us "adults" out for an evening. We took on the Tower of Terror and my 6 year old nephew Hunter was braver than I was! Jackie (my 12 neice) even went twice! Nate and I went to an amusement park on our first date and this trip brought back some fun nostalgia!
Thanks fam for the late night Trivial Pursuit, waterslides, and help with the girls!
