Disney Day #1

I have to break this down, otherwise, you will become overwhelmed, stop reading and not get to hear about all the FANTASTIC things that my kids did while at Disneyland! SOOOOOOO, here goes!

First, I thought it was against all regulations, but we had this AMAZING flight crew when flying to OC, and they stopped us on the way in to ask me if I had a camera, and if I wanted to take my picture of the kids in the cockpit! HELL YEAH, when is that ever going to happen again! They were both COMPLETELY overwhelmed, but I managed to snap a few! I think they both just wanted to push all the buttons, but they behaved like CHAMPS and didn't touch a single one!!

When the flight attendants were doing their "good-bye" announcement over the loud speaker, they started off by saying, "Jackson, Mickey called, and he is waiting for you at Disneyland!" I don't know what it is about that kid, but he attracts all kinds. Some man asked me at Dunkin' Donuts the other morning when he was going to Hollywood because he is beautiful, and the man was like 60! I don't even know what it is about him, but he is something else!!!

When we arrived at the airport, there was a limo waiting for us-DON'T GET EXCITED, I travel by limo when we go places because I don't feel guilty for not bringing car seats, and THAT IN AND OF ITSELF is worth every SINGLE penny! Pat got to pre-party before making it to Disneyland! We also brought Sassy, the classroom stuffed dog, with us to Disneyland, so she may be present in many of the pictures, but it was really exciting to the kids that Sassy went with us, soooooooooooo we did it!

I don't think Tyler was READY for Disneyland. When we got there Monday night, it was darkish and quite overwhelming, she didn't see Mickey or Minnie, so she didn't understand this was Disneyland, but they both got some pretty cool hats that night! Jackson's is a reversible Buzz Lightyear/Zurg reversible one!

I can laugh about it now, but the Buzz Lightyear ride and I were going to have issues the first night because Jackson wanted to go on it, OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN! We went on the tea cups, Buzz Lightyear and Alice in Wonderland, and those were LITERALLY the only rides he wanted to go on the rest of the night and the morning. He didn't even comprehend how many other rides are out there!

I am feeling AWESOME, and I am hoping that my appendix is what was wrong with me the past six months. I have no pain, and I think this was the answer to all of my problems!!!! My mom and Pat were awesome about making sure that I didn't have to carry anything (the one limitation I had), and they would let me rest if I needed to! They really picked up a lot of my slack! I love them!

Um ... that is the coolest idea ever to get a limo. And I think that's so neat that Jackson has such a magnetic personality that people respond so positively to him - he's so handsome! And I love the picture with Tyler and her ears, so sweet :)

I can't wait to read more ...
