Disney Trip

We all went to Disneyland the last week of September. Kate had a conference down there. We stayed at the Grand Californian so we were right in on the action. Kate's dad, Tom, went with us to help out with the kiddos. It was so good to have him along, he was a big help and made the trip that much more pleasant. Here's a breakdown of what we did and some pictures. I suppose I don't expect anyone to really care what we did each day, but this is the best way for me to chronicle it so I don't forget, haha. The kids all did really well by the way. They were great on the plane, great in the parks, and had a blast!
An aside: Vera and Abram had their one year check ups in September - both doing well. Both over 50% in weight and height. Abe was 24lbs and Vera was 23lbs.
I wrote extensive itineraries for each day of the trip and believe it or not we stuck to them.


Day 1 - We arrived by plane, got to the hotel, picked up our packages shipped in from and settled in for a nap. After nap we all went to the pool. Vera LOVED it. Abram, not so much. Of course Judah had a great time with Grandpa Tom and went down the little water slide a couple of times.

Team Disney!
Day 2 - We got the early admission to Disneyland and went on nearly every ride. Judah did the Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, the Carousel  Small World, Pirates, Autotopia, Jungle Cruise, and Finding Nemo. He had a little comment about all the rides and was super serious and analytical throughout. "That one could have used more slow parts." "That monster's eyes were too red." "I'm a crazy driver!!"

Mama and Judah at the gates!

This was Judah's favorite
Day 3 - Kate went to the conference and Grandpa Tom, Shelby, and Kiddos went to the parks. They did mostly California Adventure Park including the new Carsland. Judah really enjoyed that. Grandpa Tom, Shelby, and Judah went to the World of Color show at night and said it was awesome.

Day 4 - Today there was only one goal - MEET RAPUNZEL. Judah waited in line for an hour to meet her and it was an hour well spent. He loves her. He chatted her up, hugged her, and blew kisses. The babies loved Pirates and Small World. Grandpa Tom and Shelby went on the big roller coaster - California Screamin.

Day 5 - This was a chill day. Kate got back from the conference early and went on the ride she really wanted to go on - the Canyon River Run raft ride at California Adventure Park. We were going to do fireworks this night but Judah was exhausted, and so were we.

Day 6 - Traveled home! We got burgerville on the way home (of course). Great trip.
