So in February we decided to take out 3 crazy kids to Disneyland. And we invited my parents and Chad to come along and be apart of a crazy wild trip to Disneyland (its always straight chaos for our little family). I think it is safe to say that trips can only be planned so far, you always have hiccups. But it was a blast and very busy! I loved to watch Sam react to Disneyland for the first time, Livie to be a bit more daring this time around, and Mads completely surprise me on how bold and tough she really is. The biggest bummer about the trip was Small World was closed, the girls were so upset. This was their favorite ride the last time we came, I think we may have gone on it...I lost track after 10. So that was sad for them (but maybe not so much for the adults...no we enjoyed it because they did).
Grandma and Grandpa I am pretty sure enjoyed the trip. Even though we are probably the most disorgnanized, unplanning, chaotic family trippers around. We just winged it most of the time. haha! Even when we went to the beach, we decided last minute what beach we went too. But I think we picked a good one. We went to Laguna Beach, the south end. Chad and I went out till our toes could barely touch and rode the waves, I might add that the water was sooooo cold. I was frozen solid when I got out. Good thing it was 70 degrees because it took me awhile to warm back up. I felt like I was young again, like we did in San Diego together (its not often I feel young anymore). David and Sam hung out together and walked along the shoreline. Maddie ran around the whole beach collecting seashells of all shapes and sizes. She was so bummed that we didn't let her take any (well she snuck a few with her before we left, silly Mads). Olivia got cold too fast and just sat on the shore in the sand and played in it. The waves kept sweeping her off her feet. My parents checked out the tide pools that were close by.
