Anna had already told the pilots that this was a surprise so they kids had NO idea where we were going. Kayla was so funny, she said she felt like a rich person going to have lunch in another state. Anna had gotten each of the kids a backpack filled with all kinds of snacks and things to keep them busy during the trip. It was like Christmas all over again:)
As soon as the driver started getting close to our destination I knew it was only a matter of time before Kayla was going to figure it out. Just as we turned to corner into the hotel parking lot there was the BIGGEST sign
WELCOME TO DISNEYLAND!!!
The kids were so excited!! When we told them we were staying for almost a week they were ecstatic!! NO SCHOOL:)What an awesome vacation this was. We had plenty of time to see everything. I thought I was going to have all this down time while the kids took naps. Boy was I WRONG. Kayla and James were ready to Go Go Go.
James loved the Pirates of the Caribbean. I think we rode on it about 20 times. Every time we would come to the end he would say," AWW man I was going to get the buried treasure and someone already got it."
The pic below is of her waiting for the kids to come down on a water ride. Every time the tube would come down it would get this area soaked. She thought it was so funny to take a chance and get in as close as she could. As soon as she would see it coming she would step back and hold her face. TO CUTE!
Meeting New Friends
Haylie has been addicted to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and loves Goofy. We couldn't wait to see the look on her face when she got to meet them. YA, that didn't go over so well. See loved to see them from a distance but she was not fond of them getting close to her. So I ended up being in ever picture.
This was SO embarrassing. I'm just standing in a crowd of people watching these guys preform. This crazy man comes over, grabs my hand and asks me to do some crazy dance in front of EVERYONE! If you know me, I DO NOT like to stand out in the crowd. It's just not my thing:) So what was I suppose to do. Again if you know me....I laugh. Whenever I'm embarrassed or uncomfortable I laugh. So that's what I did laughed the whole time, laugh and look like a total dork dancing.
I think this is a vacation the kids will remember FOREVER! It was so fun to do it as a surprised. They are still thanking us for the BEST SURPRISE EVER:)
