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!

Disney Road Trip Gift Baskets

As you might have picked up on, we are driving the 8 hours down to Disneyland for our daughters 3rd birthday. Considering we are doing this with a 3 year old and a 15 month old I knew we needed a lot of entertainment and new fun toys to get us through the trip there and back. 

I put together each of the kids a gift basket filled with fun Disney themed items of stuff I picked up from a few different stores. Take a look:

I purchased the storage bins at Joann Fabrics on clearance and figured I could use them for storage in their bedrooms after the trip
I then printed their names using the Disney font on colored paper and pasted that to the bin

Considering how young our son is, he won't be getting as much stuff as our daughter 
He will have more "baby" toys in the car to play with as well

Books for him to flip through

I went mainly "Princess" theme with our daughters since she is going through a Princess stage in life :)

Hailey's includes coloring books, crayons, note books, temporary tattoos, counting cards, a toy camera, toy phone, Stitch coin purse, ball, 2 crowns, lots of books and a Minnie Mouse 

I even used some of the books we already had for the baskets.
I took them out of Hailey's bedroom about 2 months ago and stored them away for her to forget about them until the trip :)

I will let you know how much a hit there were when we are back!
