California Part 1

We left CO on Wends. morning. We were expecting Addilyn to be a pain in the tush on the airplane, she doesn't love being made to sit on our laps. We got to the airport only to find out our flight had been delayed. We grabbed some lunch and a little snack from the candy store while we waited. Once we were on the plane, Elie had no problem keeping herself busy and Addilyn fell fast asleep. Such an easy flight.

We picked up a rockin' mini van and drove up to Aunt Darlenes. We went to visit Grandpa John, who is 86 and waiting in the hospital for a valve replacement surgery. Matt had to work on Thursday and the girls and I played with Matt's cousins and there kids. Elie never wanted to leave Darlenes with all the toys, the pool and friends she made.

Friday was Disney and we had a blast. So much more fun this year than last. The day was cool and we had almost no lines for any ride. We rode Small World, Dumbo, Tea Cups, Mr. toad and a few others. We visited Micky and Minnie in there houses and ate hot dogs in toon town. We made it from about 9:30 to 4:00 before the girls were tuckered out. Eliana has been singing the "tiki Room" song since.

The weekend was spent with family. Luke, Matt's bro, is back from a tour of duty in Iraq and came down for the weekend. I don't think Elie gave him a moment to himself, poor guy. We had a big family meal, ate some GF birthday cupcakes that Matt's aunt made for me, and really enjoyed our time.

Sunday afternoon we took Luke to the bus station and drove a few hours down to San Diego and checked into our hotel. We are now watching cartoons and waiting for Grandpa Skip and Grandma Karen to join us for a few days. Matt is off to work. I will keep you posted on the rest of the trip!
