Impromptu Disney Trip

Jason got a new job. He was recruited out of his last job to a fantastic opportunity: a growing and stable company, excellent pay, upward mobility. Can you tell that I am bursting with pride at the amazing-ness of my hubby?!

We knew our lifestyle would change a bit with the move - the biggest change being less time off. So, when he planned the move, we added an extra week of time together as a family the week after my birthday. Naturally, we spent it at Disneyland.
It was a trip of loving the old things and discovering a few new things. We loved the new hotel, but not that an employee stole our credit card information. Laura discovered that she loved Tower of Terror this year, but Sara told us afterwards that there are 3 things that scared her "real fire, bears, and Tower of Terror." Poor kid, we exposed her with 2 of those 3 on the trip as World of Color utilizes a lot of "real fire".
I discovered some utterly delicious new food at Cafe Orleans, the salmon sandwich. Jason fell in love with it too. We also discovered a new path for our mornings at DCA that made those days more fun, relaxed and productive.
Eliza discovered that she likes characters that talk. So, the new talking Minnie Mouse at the Fly Girls Show was a huge hit and massive progress in character interaction for her. As a side note, that girl really loves Rapunzel.
Sara discovered that she really likes to be in the shows like Phineas and Ferb, or Pixar Pals. She totally hammed it up with her sisters and had a great time!!
It was great family time that got us all prepped for the crazy month we have had afterwards. Oh, and I loved missing a good part of the cotton allergies.


  1. So glad you got some much needed family time!

  2. It really was a perfect trip and I'm so glad that we went. I think we would all be DYING right now with the crazy, hectic schedule we've been keeping had we not had a good family vacation to start us off!

  3. Looks like a wonderful time as always!
