We finally found a break in plays and dance so we ran ourselves to Disneyland. It's been years since we've been at Christmastime because it was so crowded the last time. But we went the week after Thanksgiving and the crowds were not nearly as bad.
The weather was insane - record breaking rain. But, we were all outfitted in waterproof gear and enjoyed ourselves regardless.
The holiday characters were spectacular. We adored the Christmas parade and really really enjoyed the Jingle Cruise. The best part of the trip was the time together. It was all about laughs and hugs and rides on Big Thunder all together while playing "squish".
