Yes, yes, I'm a day behind in my blog posting, oh well. Here's what happened yesterday. (Was it only yesterday? Unbelievable.) We started on the road trip at 8:29am, which is incrediblyamazinglyearly for our family: Then, ahem, after we turned around and retrieved something that I left at home, we restarted the trip at 8:35. Crimony. The lapdesks worked like a charm. I had stuffed them so full of goodies that we barely heard a peep out of the girls the entire trip. Oh, and we didn't even have to break out the Grey's Anatomy DVDs until the last hour in stop-and-go LA traffic. They're watching one of the shows in this pic, and for the folks who asked, their two favorite shows are the one in season 2 where there's a train wreck and the person comes running into the ER holding a severed leg and Christina says "I want that leg!" and the one in season 2 where the elevator doors don't open and George has to perform heart surgery in the elevator. Ah, good stuff: There was snow on the grapevine. SNOW!! Holy cow: We got to the hotel, threw our bags into the room, and jumped right back in the car to go see D2/K2/H2/S2. Poor folks had arrived only minutes before we descended upon them and then asked them to come out immediately for a little late-evening Disneyland. The kiddos were all game, and we had so much fun: It was so great to be there when there were NO crowds. Wow. We hardly waited in any lines at all. This might be a good time to mention that Ree is in the purple, Ro is in the pink, S2 is in the pink dotted skirt, and H2 is in the black leggings: The first ride was a rocketship that went pretty high in the air if you ask me. Yipes. We hadn't taken the time to unpack the D300, so all the pics tonight were taken with the purse camera, which struggled a bit: We also hit the carousel (see both sets of twins holding hands?): We took advantage of the light crowds to get on the yellow submarine ride (don't know the real name, but that's what Ro calls it), rode Dumbo once or twice (it's all starting to blur together), and Ro and Ree also got really brave and went on Mr Toad's Wild Ride and the Pinocchio's Daring Adventure. That just wouldn't have happened last year. Tiny little adventurers are just eating up Disneyland this year. They've already asked if we can stay 10 days. Next up, Day 2 at Disneyland, our first full day at the park. I won't get that post up tonight, because that pillow is calling my name, but here's a little teaser: Night all.
