Our very last Disney day before our annual passes expired deserves its own post because if you ask Blake, this was the best day of his life to this point. We set out early on our traditional birthday date and arrived at the park just before opening. I surprised him…

Last Disney Days

April 27, 2019 in Disneyland - No Comments

Our annual Disneyland passes expired at the end of December so in the midst of Christmas chaos, we made sure to maximize our final days. I took the littles while Blake and Nash were at school and we rode on the teacups over and over. Crew loves spotting his name….

Disney Lunar New Year

April 2, 2017 in Disneyland - No Comments

While Nash and I were at Disneyland celebrating his birthday, we took advantage of the limited Lunar New Year celebration. It was the highlight of our day to watch the Chinese acrobats perform at Paradise Pier. Their act kept getting bigger and more challenging. It was unreal to watch. I…
