Day 5 in LA...I mean Anaheim!!! :)

Yes, that's right, we got to go to Disneyland...YEAH!!!! :) Where do I start??? Well, Alyssa got to meet Cinderella right when we got there. We probably could've left right after that and she would've thought it was the best day ever...but we decided to stay anyways. ;) She also got to meet Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, have storytime w/Belle, see Mickey and Minnie after going through their houses (which she thought was so cool), Goofy, Pluto, and Pooh (although for some reason she was scared of Pooh???). Really I just don't know what to say except that it was such a fun day, the girls did GREAT, and God is so good to provide a special day like that for us...we are very thankful for that time!
Here's a TON of pics...
It was really neat to see Disneyland all decorated for Halloween!
Alyssa's big moment!
It's sad...I don't have one picture of her smiling with Cinderella. She was like a deer caught in the headlights, it was pretty cute!

This was really fun for the girls...different princesses and princes came out to teach the kids how to curtsie and bow and how to dance like a princess!
The girls waiting to get on a ride. :)
Going through Mickey's house.
I promise Alyssa...we're not going to leave you here! ;)
Finding Nemo was definitely Emi's favorite ride!
Later Alyssa asked if we could go see Mickey again...this time for some reason she whacked Mickey across the nose...and this picture shows Emi trying to copy her.
Finally Emi was awake when we saw Minnie so we had to get a picture of her dressed in her Minnie Mouse costume with Minnie! :)
Pooh was sad...neither of the girls would go anywhere near him!

What a precious time with your family! My favorite pics are Alyssa behind the bars, Alyssa on the boat ride and Nate holding Emi upside down. It is a blessing to see family enjoy each other so much. Now, I suppose you were hoping to go to D-land since you don't just travel with princess/Minnie outfits? Or, maybe you do when you have girls...I wouldn't know. :)

That's hilarious! ...yes we were hoping it'd work out to go to Disneyland...but Alyssa does wear her Cinderella dress ALL day now (she got it for her b-day). It was a struggle to get her to understand that she cannot wear it to BSF! :)
