Disneyland and the beach

We just got back from the most amazing vacation! We went to California and had such a blast! We went to Disneyland, California Adventure Park and to a beach. Both kids were such troopers. It was so fun to see how happy they were and to see such a sparkle in their eyes. Everything went so smoothly, I couldn't have asked for a better trip. We were able to go on lots of rides, meet lots of characters, eat pineapple ice cream, Magnolia got to eat Mickey Mouse ice cream while Keegan loved a chocolate malt. David and I were able to enjoy a wine and cheese plate while Keegan took a quick nap in the stroller and we took a quick break from the rides. We went out for dinner where there were men making balloon animals. Magnolia asked for a giraffe. At the beach we were able to play in the sand, waves and tide pools. It was such an exciting trip that Keegan crashed as soon as he got on the plane to head home and slept the whole time. I must agree with that silly ol' saying... Disneyland is truly the happiest place on earth! :) I put many more pictures on after these so if you can't see them all just click "Older Posts" on the bottom right side of the blog!

Beach bums

On Wednesday we took a break from Disney and headed to the beach. A friend used to live out there so he directed us to this beach that is pretty much a "locals" beach. To say it was incredible would be an understatement. I guess it is a little to early in the season for most locals so we had the entire beach pretty much to ourselves. The kids LOVED playing in the water and sand. They both just laughed in delight the whole time. I thought the water was cold, but Magnolia did not! She could not wait to get in and play! Keegan would run in and then run out and run in and run out. He loved playing in the sand and hauling his bucket around. Magnolia also loved collecting sea glass and sea shells. She found some very pretty shells! We also were able to go to some tide pools after playing around in the sand. Magnolia and David climbed around and found many sea creatures and fun things in the tide pools. It was an absolutely amazingly wonderful day!

Character meetings

How many characters can one family meet in Disneyland?! LOTS!! We were so lucky that we were able to meet and get autographs of so many characters! Sofia the First was Magnolia's favorite. When we were standing in line to meet her Magnolia said "Oh mom! I can hardly breath I am so excited to meet Sofia!" Keegan's favorite was Olaf the snowman. He could not stop jumping up and down in excitement!
