The Graduation was at the park behind our house, next to his school.
This is the sister of one of Max's classmates. Atticus got to know her well over the school year and he even had some play dates with her. Hopefully, they will be in preschool together next year. They have a lot of fun together.
We decided, at the last minute...as in 5 days before we left...that we wanted to go on a family vacation and drive to Disneyland.
And there goes Greer's foot again. We had a great drive. The kids watched movies and played the Wii and were convinced we drove through Radiator Springs on our way to see Lightning McQueen in California.
We had a great hotel room. It was a suite with a King size bed and bunk beds and a fold-out couch. The kids LOVED the hotel so much they did not want to go to Disneyland. They really thought the hotel was disneyland. When we told them we were going to disneyland and staying all day until it was dark, they looked at us with such disappointment and confusion. It was raining the 1st morning when we got up to leave. So after getting everyone dressed and loaded on the stroller, we made one lap around the hotel and came right back in. It was too cold and rainy. We ate some mac & cheese for breakfast while we waited for the rain to stop.
Our mode of transportation for the next 3 days.
You can see part of Disneyland in the background. It was a GREAT hotel room!
Greer clapped with the music at It's a Small World.
Toy Story ride
Some friends from church were there too, so we got to hang out with them!
As you can tell, Emmett was FREAKED out on this ride, but Max and Atticus loved it!
It's a Small World
There was a pretend t.v. in Mickey's house, and Emmett sat right down waiting for something to come on the t.v....much like he does at home.
Monsters, Inc. ride. There wasn't a line for this one, so we rode it over and over and Max and Atticus got to ride together on the same row without an adult!!
Here we all are.
I am absolutely 100% exhausted. Can you tell?
Since not one single one of us had ever been to California before, we HAD to go to the beach. It was cold and windy and Atticus took a big ol' fall into the water and it was not pretty.
On our way home, we stayed at Treasure Island in Las Vegas and watched the fireworks explode right in front of our window. Oh we had such a great time, and we CANNOT wait to go back!
