A Disneyland Birthday to Remember Forever...


Last week we were beyond thrilled to have spent the entire week celebrating our daughters 3rd birthday in the happiest place on earth, Disneyland!!!

Our family had such an amazing vacation. 
The memories we gained will be cherished for years and years to come. 
Our children (3 and 15 months old) went beyond our expectations and were absolute angels. 
We had been dreading the sleepless nights, the melt downs and the 8 hour drive there and back but to our surprise we had an abundance of sleep at night and naps and maybe only a few minor melts downs at the most. 
A very successful trip I would say!! 


Our Daughter was not too thrilled with meeting the characters at first


Both kids LOVED Tinkerbell and her fairy sister??? Not sure what her name is..


Happy Girl waiting for It's A Small World


It's a Small World decorated for Christmas.. it was amazing!!


The whole family in Cars Land.. The most awesome looking place in Disneyland/California Adventure. 
It all looked so real and so beautiful!

    1. Thank you! She will love it! I heard from MANY people that 3ish is the age to go where they truly love it and take it all in, so I am sure it will be perfect :)

    1. It is AMAZING!! I would go there all the time if I could :) I would definitely recommend Grandparents and just don't go when you are pregnant or have a really little infant. Our son was 15 months and he did great. So if you aren't planning to have another soon I would go now AND later :) Good luck with that talk! I am your newest follower on your awesome blog, love the gift wrapping you did, an amazing job!
