Good times and big adventures...Part One

Last week we were able to take a family vacation to the hap hap happiest place on earth...Disneyland!!! We had a lot of wild adventures and a lot of good times. It took us two days to drive there with a 2 am stop in Primm, Nevada. The highlight of Primm was the very overpriced over cooked buffet and the $10 gift shop.

Mady turned seven years old on Saturday and we were planning on going to the beach. While Ryan, my mom and the kids were shopping for some last minute items my dad was in the hotel room watching the news. The Earthquake in Chili just happened and there was a tsunami warning along the California coast. My Dad would not let any of us get near the Ocean so we decided to go to Disneyland. We were a little concerned because it was A. Saturday and B. overcast and the weather forcast was rain. But how fun would it to spend your birthday in Disneyland. We ultimately had a great day. Mady got a pin that said "It's my birthday" so all the cast members said Happy Birthday to her. At first she didn't like it but by the end of the night she just said "Thank you" and smiled. We did get rained on and poor Mady's feet were soaked. During dinner Daxton decided to throw up all over himself. Poor guy. So I walked back to our hotel room and changed Daxton and got a change of clothes for Mady and headed back to the happiness. By the time I made it back to the hotel room my pant legs were wet up to my knees. It felt good to get a change of clothes. Dax and I made it back to enjoy a few more rides. Ryan and I took Mady on her first ride of space mountain. She was not so impressed. Ryan kept yelling "faster, faster" so Mady thought that it was his fault the ride was going so fast.

The girls were disappointed that the tea cup ride was closed but there favorite rides were Dumbo and the roller coaster in toon town. Mady's favorite part or the day was getting Minnie Mouse's signature. Minnie wrote in Mady's book "Happy Birthday Mady, Love Minne Mouse" Madylin was excited. We ended Mady's magical day with a ride on Peter Pan. I love that ride and Daxton loved it also. Good times!

Sorry there are no pictures, maybe with Part two....
