Disneyland FUN!

the "Mad Hatter & White Rabbit"

Casey Junior coming down the track......


Here we all are on Day 2....seasoned Pro's and ready for another magical adventure. We spent the morning riding almost every ride in Fantasyland. I think our favorite was "Peter Pan" flying over Neverland! Gma Lor Lor & Mom saw Peter Pan as while we were shopping at the Bibbiti Bobbiti Boutique. They told him we had just been on his ride and he said "it's the best one here". Our fun continued into the afternoon as we LOVED our amazing Monte Cristo lunch at the "Blue Bayou" and the "Pirate's of the Carribean" ride was so much FUN for us all!!! We also enjoyed some time in "Toonetown" riding a roller coaster with the girls. At the end of the day it was time to split up as Mom & Dad took our BIG girl Emma to ride "Splash Mountain" and Ava went with Gma Lor Lor & Baby Jim to ride the rocket and train around the park!

A special "THANK YOU" to Gma Lor Lor & Baby Jim for taking us all on this magical journey to Disneyland!!! We can't wait to go back!

Day One...."Fantasyland"

Lunch with the Princesses at "Ariel's Grotto"

the "magic" of DISNEYLAND!!!

So Baby Jim has been talking about taking the girls to Disneyland for about as long as we can remember but he had a condition.....they had to be able to walk around the park and not be carried! We totally agreed, so FINALLY with Ava 4 & Emma 5 1/2 our "big girls" were ready for their magical adventure! It was wonderful to see their smiling & excited faces as we entered Disneyland! It was amazing seeing Sleeping Beauty's castle, Main Street, Minnie & Goofy right away upon entrance into the park. Mom was equally in awe of this place as it was her first trip too!

We started our amazing day with a "Jungle Cruise" that Ava was a little skeptical of but couldn't wait to go again afterward! Then it was off to the submarine and an underwater experience with our sweet friend "Nemo". The highlight of our first day had to be lunch with the princesses at "Ariel's Grotto". Meeting Emma's favorite Cinderella & Ava's favorite Belle was so special. We also were able to meet Ariel, Sleeping Beauty & Snow White. Belle was the Best as she spent a lot of time with our special princesses! Mom, Dad, Baby Jim & Lor Lor all enjoyed a wonderful relaxing lunch too.

After lunch it was off to "Fantasyland" riding in the famous Tea Cups. It was Mom & Lor Lor's favorite. We even got dad who can get pretty dizzy to ride after he saw how much fun all the girls had! The Mad Hatter & White Rabbit were fun to see along with so many others. The girls didn't want to get to close to any characters though. That was just fine as it gave us lots of time to ride rides. One we were singing all day long and a family favorite was "It's a small world after all". We finished off the day watching the amazing Disney Parade on Main Street with all our favorite Disney friends!

Ava's Ballet Birthday!

Ava's BALLET Party!

Ava Elizabeth turns 4!

Ava had so much fun at her "Ballet" Birthday party this year! It's hard to believe our baby is already 4!!! We wish she would slow down! Ava LOVED to whirl & twirl with all her little friends! They looked so adorable in matching tutu's made especially for the event by mom and enjoyed a Ballet Lesson to Ava's favorite music "Beauty & the Beast". Thank you Sadie Jane for another fun party! Gma Lor Lor made her amazing cake pops and mom (with Lor Lor's help) made the famous Magnolia cupcakes! Thanks to all our sweet friends for making Ava's Birthday so special! We Love You so much Ava Elizabeth! Happy 4th Birthday!!!
