Trip to Disneyland! {Day 2}

On Monday, we woke up bright and early (6:30 - that's early for us, Emmy doesn't usually wake up until around 8:30!) so that we could get to Disneyland. As we drove up to the front gates, Emmy kept saying "Mickey House!" (that's what she calls Mickey Mouse - why? I don't know . . .) My whole family went, even Grammy and Papa, which was so much fun! We ate lots of greasy food and rode lots of fun rides :)

Here are the highlights:

My family in front of Disneyland! Back row from left: Emmy, Jake, me, my brother Matt, his wife Sony, my bro-in-law Derek, my sister Lindsey, Grammy and Papa. Bottom row from left: Maddy, Grey (Matt's kids), Ella and Dylan (Lindsey's kids)

Walking down Main Street - Emmy was on Jake's shoulders a lot of the time at Disneyland :)

After we rode "Alice in Wonderland", Grammy took the kids to "Mad Hatters" and bought them each a hat. This is the one Emmy picked out! It even has her name stitched onto the back. She likes Pirates. In fact, "Pirates of the Caribbean" was her favorite ride. We rode it at least 5 or 6 times, and she just kept asking to ride it again and again!

All of the kids (I don't know who the kids in the stroller are . . . they're just in our pic!)

We saw Jasmine and Aladdin - Emmy loves them! We didn't wait in line to get a pic w/ them because it was so long. We'll wait until Emmy is a little older to do that.

This is Emmy's Minnie Mouse harness. She would NOT put it on at first. I had to show her another kid w/ a monkey harness on. After that I convinced her to give Minnie a "piggy-back ride"

Mommy and Emmy waiting in line at the Jungle Cruise

Emmy wearing mommy's shades while waiting in line at The Haunted Mansion. I was worried it would be too scary for her but she loved it!

The baby bumps! My belly on the left and Lindsey's on the right (she's due three weeks before me)

Lindsey and Emmy waiting to be seated at dinner. Emmy was tired after a fun-filled day of rides!

Dinner at Cafe Orleans. I had the Monte Cristo sandwich - yummy!!! For lunch we ate corn dogs so I had to add more fried food to my meal plan :)

On the drive back to the hotel from Disneyland, the kids fell asleep in the car. They were so tired! We were, too! We had planned on swimming every night . . . yeah, that didn't happen. We were lucky to make it to the hotel and take showers before crashing! Needless to say, we all slept good :)

Ruby and Bingham call it Mickey House too, I think they put it altogether from Mickey mouse club house. Love her hate and minnie holder. And the baby bumps are too cute. What a fun family trip.
