|Caught red-handed eating Cheerios from Muira's car seat.|
We made a quick stop through Santa Ana to see my great Aunt.
Finn and Selah were Disneyland rookies! And they were sooooo excited!
|Holding their tickets. They're energy was almost electric as we waited in line!|
|Finn looked like this most of the day - glued to the map. He was a great guide.|
|That super high pony tail on top of Selah's head was by design. We weren't sure if she was tall enough to go on some of the same rides as Finn. We needed to give her a little edge. ;-) It worked! We are so sneaky.|
|We met Ariel pretty early on. The kids were sort of awe-struck They sort of didn't know what to do with themselves. They just stood there staring. It was funny.|
We almost didn't venture over to the...I don't remember what it was called. There was a big stage and lots of flowers and greenery...looked like Sherwood Forest or something. Anyway, we almost didn't go in, but on our way out of the park I suggested that we check it out because we hadn't done very many princessy things for Selah's sake. As we entered the arena there were only a few kids and parents there and lots of space to run and dance around. Then I saw this purple princess-type character (I still don't recognize her from anything.....Gosh I hope she actually worked for Disney!) just standing in the corner alone watching the kids. She caught Selah's eye. Selah started to tiptoe dancing her way over...a little unsure. Then the princess opened her arms up for a big hug invitation. It was the cutest little interaction. Then, determined to be more congenial with THIS princess, Selah ran over, stopped half way, and demonstrated a little full turn dance move for the purple lady. Trying to show the princess a thing or two I guess. Maybe she was auditioning to be a cast member. They chatted, compared sparkles and did a twinsie photo. It totally made Selah's day.
|This is Selah 3 minutes after getting in the car. Not kidding.|
After our goodbyes to Mark and Lina we hopped right on the I5 for a long drive home, straight from Disneyland. We don't mind the night drives, we even look forward to it. Our secret is the always weird and pretty entertaining AM radio show Coast to Coast with George Nory. If you like hearing about crop circles, vampires and conspiracy theories, (or at least like to laugh at the crazy callers who talk about them) then tune in from 9pm-2am. It gets us through all those long drives to SB.
I'll end this post with a little clip of Selahbob enjoying some drumming entertainment at DL. Keep watching and you'll see her in all her dancing glory.
