Here are a few more pictures, highlights from our time in Anaheim. The children had fun picking out their Mickey hats and getting their names sewn on the back.
My mom also treated them to their first Build-A-Bear experience. The girls picked out Hello Kitties with Tigger and Piglet costumes. Elliott, after much prodding, finally chose a monkey with a Buzz Lightyear costume.
I skipped out on the Build-A-Bear experience to visit with one of my close high school friends. Keri and I had a wonderful, though too short, time catching up. Definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me.
Here the four are at the base of the beautiful Christmas tree at the beginning of Main Street. Notice how wonderfully cooperative (sarcasm) Lucia is being.
They loved playing on the old fire engine. They got to crawl all over it and play with all its features.
Another highlight was getting to see Buzz Lightyear. The children have loved Toy Story the past year so seeing all the Toy Story characters in the parades and out and about was great fun.
We loved going to Minnie's House. She had a cake baking in the oven, dishes washing in the dishwasher, a laptop they could play on. Lots of fun things to do. She was even home one time we went to her house.
I loved the Dumbo ride when I was little. It was such a treat for me to be able to ride on Dumbo with one of my children. Lucia and I were able to ride on her favorite color Dumbo too--Orange!
Karen treated us to Breakfast with Goofy. This was such a great time; something I would definitely want to do again. Different characters walk around and talk to you at your table while you partake in a huge spread of delicious food. Mickey-shaped waffles, among the treats.
Disneyland was great and we look forward to getting to go back before too too long.
