DAY 2 - California Adventure Park and on to San Diego






We started the day with breakfast at La Brae Bakery in Downtown Disney. The very best cup of coffee we have had since arriving in the USofA. I always miss Timmies on the this side of the border.


We met a few of Luca's hero's today. Mater, Lightening McQueen and.....WOODY!!!



Luca bravely went up to Woody to show off his t-shirt, asked him to sign his autograph book and gave him a huge hug! It was awesome and he hasn't stopped talking about it!

Disneyland Day 1 - PURE MAGIC

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CARTER!










May sound corny but seriously.....magic!

We started out the day with breakfast at Goofy`s Kitchen. The food was great and we had our 1st encounters with Pluto, Goofy, Baloo, Genie, Pricess Aurora and Alice. Luca was not at all impressed to meet Baloo (translate scared shitless) while Carter showed each and everyone lots of love! Hugs for everyone. It would seem 7 is the ideal age for Disney Magic.

Mom Rocks!

My Mom is game for anything! One of the funniest things over the holidays was watching Mom play Rockband with Joel! I was making the stuffing and prepping the night before Christmas eve dinner and Joel and Mom were rocking out in the basement. I called Lee and held up the phone so she could hear Joel singing and Mom playing drums on Ballroom Blitz! She "rocked out" a number of times with the family band! Unfortunately no pics of Mom you'll just have to take my word for it.

This is a video of Luca singing Mississippi Queen or "mississiffi queen" as he puts hit.

To Blog or not to Blog......













I seem to be having difficulties keeping up with my blog. It isn't that nothing is going on...maybe too much. Alas I am undecided whether to keep it up or not......

We had a very quiet Christmas. Mom staying with us for nearly a week. Unfortunately, Lee's kiddos were sick so we weren't able to spent any time with them which was disappointing but there are so many nasty bugs going around it wasn't worth getting my boys sick.
Our big plans for January include a trip to DISNEYLAND!!! Having never been myself I am beyond excited! We leave on the 28th of January for a week. We are not telling the kids yet as they will be a bit too annoying with the countdown...Luca simply will be unbearable!


Enjoy the pics...
