On Thursday my mom kept the girls while Vanessa and I headed down to Brook's to spend the day with her, baby Abbey and Brook's MIL. It was wonderful to spend an afternoon with only ladies. Vanessa tried on maternity clothes, and filled a suitcase with some to take home. There was plenty of holding baby Abbey- my favorite. Grandma Chris treated us to lunch, which was super yummy. It was truly a treat to spend time with my sisters.
Friday morning Vanessa and I set out with two very excited little girls- we were going to DISNEYLAND! And thanks to my soon to be SIL, who signed us in and Vanessa who paid for the parking it didn't cost me a dime! :) The day was a dream, we went to Small World first- less than 10 min wait, next Princess story time where we were lucky to find Snow White available for pictures- with virtually no line! Then Cinderella told us her story. Next was Dumbo which was a little longer of a wait, but we wanted to do it early before it got much hotter. Cambryn was a crack up- she would cry and be terrified before every ride- then end up liking it!
Tiffany and Rebekah have DISNEYLAND passes- so Tiff made arangements to have Rebekah attend morning Kindergartedn that day and come join us at lunch time. When we looked for a shady spot to eat lunch we found Woody and Jessie- another photo op. Tiff met us there and when we were done we headed over to the Winnie the Pooh ride and rode that 2 or 3 times- it was great to have kids that were the same ages so everyone was happy with the ride choices. About this time Bristyn was starting to not feel well- she was pulling at her ears and feeling a bit warm- I thought maybe she was coming down with an ear infection. So that meant carrying her all afternoon- she would lay her head on my shoulder- my arms and back soon started to feel like they were going fall off. The kids needed snack and bathroom breaks kind of often but we totally didn't mind- we were here for them!
Saturday we went to a craft fair and got our toes done. Sunday Brook and James blessed Abbey- it was wonderful- I don't have pictures from Sunday because I was using my mom's camera- next time I go down I will load the pics onto my memory stick and then put some up here.
