Start the halloween celebration!

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Disneyland was all decked out and ready for Halloween so we decided to just go with it. No matter that it’s still September. Truth be told, we actually decorated last weekend anyway.
We got up nice and early this morning to get into the park at opening. The girls begged for Splash Mountain so we […]

Paradise Pier

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Chris was on another mini-vacation from work so we decided very spur of the moment to stay the night at Disneyland’s Paradise Pier Hotel. First stop after checking in was the pool! They have a water slide which really upped the wow factor as far as the kids were concerned. We then had a nice […]

puppy free

Sunday, September 25th, 2011

As of today we are free of puppies. We found a close home for one of them and a faraway home for the other. As in, he took a plane ride. I know the kids may be a smidgen sad, but I’m good. This whole experience has made me realize I will never have a […]

Thursday was homeschool day at the Aquarium. I love that they do this. One of the problems with visiting museums and such during the school year is we often feel pushed out of areas to make way for a school group. The Aquarium hosts 2 homeschool days in September every year. Not only do they […]

Disneyland followed by, Disneyland

Sunday, September 11th, 2011

Chris and Tabitha went to the Kings Hockey Fan Fest today so Daisy and I spent our time at Disneyland. When it’s just the two of us I let her dictate anything she wants and I follow. Today this meant 30-minutes of taking pictures in Mickey’s house followed by 45-minutes of goat petting. Seriously, 45-minutes […]

Three Bears

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

Today we had another meeting of Daisy’s play group. Today they put on Goldilocks and the 3 Bears for us. They were very good with getting into their roles and doing more than just reading. Too cute! We have to put them on hold for a few months though as our regular book club starts […]
