We are back from our great vacation. What made this vacation so great? We were able to spend time with friends, relax, and make memories with our kids. That last detail was the one thing Jed and I really wanted to do. We wanted our kids to have fun. We think we succeeded.
On Thursday we went to Disneyland. The kids knew we were going, but we did keep one thing secret. We made reservations at Ariel's Grotto--where the princesses come and greet you at your table while you eat your meal. The breakfast was quite yummy, but the highlight of the meal was seeing Josiah so happy to meet the girl of his dreams, Snow White.
Josiah has been telling us ever since we told him about the trip that he wanted to see Snow White. When we asked him what he wanted to say to Snow White, he always said "Will you marry me?" Josiah is a shy boy, and I didn't think he would really go through with it, but he did. Snow White let him down gently, telling him that she was already married, but Josiah was still in love. He chose a Snow White and the Seven Dwarves "action figure set" as his souvenir, so we guess he still "got the girl".
Ali loved meeting the princesses as well, and had a blast riding some rides. Small World was a favorite.
Abi enjoyed the day as well, although she liked taking naps as much as the rides.
We had two wonderful parties with friends as well, and enjoyed a beautiful wedding between Becca and Scott.
Now we are home and hit the ground running. We are busy this month with graduation, VBS, and meetings galore. And, regardless of how busy we are, it is good to be home.
