MICKEY MOUSE


M I C...See, we haven't been there before so...K E Y... Why because we are the greatest parents this side of the Mississippi. M O U S E Mickey Mouse...Mickey Mouse... We even had a great time, despite our kids being there.
Bridger gets motion sick and he reminded us that this is all fake, you can't really ride on elephants, there is no Disney Princess, and It's a small world was just a tad to long for him (killjoy). He did enjoy the beach and the Lego store in Downtown Disney, Heck, who doesn't LOVE downtown Disney?
Oakley loved everything, she wasn't quite sure about seeing the fairy god mother, she was quick to point out that she really didn't have any wishes she needed to come true so we didn't need to get close to her. I wish that I would have got close to her, I would have loved to see if she could grant me my wish of being a size 10! Oakley also loved Downtown Disney and showed us how much at the Build A Bear Workhsop! (FYI they have some Disney only clothes and stuff for your bears, if your into that kind of thing, I would not recommend getting into that kind of thing if your not already, It is a Grandma place me and Brandon have decided, meaning that Grandmas buy $5 underwear for stuffed bears, moms do not!)
Bronson LOVED the hotel pool and the beach. we could set a clock to him because at 2 o'clock everyday he would say "Okay, we have been to Disneyland, Now Can WE Go To The Hotel and Go Swimming?" He also loved the beach and the train that goes around the outside of Disneyland. He could have swam at the hotel, rode that train all day, and still had a great time. Next time we'll leave him and Bridger at a hotel next to a train station.
Brody, he didn't care about anything. We did figure that after 9 hours in the car, he gets really really mad! We fixed it for 1 hour by feeding him a 1/2 bag of Cadbury Easter Eggs. We took one for the team and fed him those until he started screaming/bawling again. Then, what do parents of the year give their almost 1 year old? A 1/2 of a stick of gum!! Yea, and he CHEWED it for 20 glorious miles, his face was total disgust as he tried to figure out what we put into his mouth, oh well so he has a piece of gum in his stomach for 7 years, who gives a crap, he was quiet!
Brandon and I will definitely go back, just NOT with our kids. Until then, MIC See ya real soon, KEY, Why because I love you! MOUSE. MICKEY MOUSE...MICKEY MOUSE.

I love your stories. I absolutely love the idea of giving gum to a 9 month old you kill me, I am still laughing.

I can't believe I sat next to you on Sunday and you didn't tell me you went on your Disney Trip! I guess if you had, I would have wanted to ask you all about it and then disrupted the whole class, so maybe it was for the best. :)

Doreen, I just love you. You are my kind of humor. :) It sounds like you had fun. Everyone seems to be going to Disneyland right now. Maybe we should follow the crowd on this one. :)

When you go without your kids can we come!? I only request a bag of cadbury eggs for myself. ;) Glad you guys had fun!

That's smart to give Brody gum, now it will keep his tummy a little fuller and you can feed him less. It's like stapling his stomach but way cheaper. (But it only lasts 7 years)

You drove all the way to California and didn't come see me? It sounds like your kids would have had more fun at our house, well, except for maybe Oakley. We haven't been to Disneyland with our kids yet, because I am dreading it.
