The pics are done!

Daisy’s 5th Birthday

That wasn’t so bad afterall, only took me about an hour to get all the pictures done. I will be putting up another picture page in a couple days that will include our room at They Disneyland Hotel (recently remodeled and gorgeous!), our day at American Girl Place, and her party that is still coming up. I probably won’t include too many from her party since I never put other children on my website, but I’ll get some pics of the decorations and stuff before kids show up.

Basically we went to Disneyland the day before Daisy’s birthday at opening which was 10:00am. The weather was decent with the sun going in and out but it never got really cold. We rode all of Daisy’s favorites: Peter Pan, Dumbo, Tea Cups, Thunder Mountain (twice), Gadget’s Go Coaster (twice), Pirates, Haunted Mansion, Splash Mountain, and the Carousel. Plus she spent time playing in Toontown. We then headed over to the hotel to check in and eat lunch. Then the girls wanted to go swimming so Chris took them in. The pool is themed to Neverland so the slide is in Skull Rock and there’s a pirate ship and Tinkerbell. All of it was very cute. I took pictures and then settled in with my book.

After a bit they had to admit they were freezing so we hurried back the room to get changed. We then went into California Adventure where Daisy rode a new ride called Mulholland Madness (it’s themed after driving in CA, hence the Mulholland name). It’s a wild mouse type coaster and Daisy is just now tall enough so she was very excited. She loved it! Of course we had to go on it twice too :) We hung out a bit longer but the temp was quickly dropping so we decided it was time to leave.

Since Daisy isn’t really into eating out and could not have cared less where we went, we opted out of a big dinner and simply went to Del Taco which suited her just fine. When we got back to the hotel, she wanted to play so we let her for about 45 minutes. Chris took that time to go on the computer and Tabitha and I went for a long walk around the hotel grounds and a little bit into Downtown Disney for some browsing.

The rest of the night wasn’t so good with Tabitha not falling asleep until past 11pm and therefore Chris and I were once again stuck in a hotel bathroom.

Next day was Daisy’s actual birthday! She opened her presents and spent the day telling us she now felt 17. We went back into Disneyland where I took tons of posed photos of the kid and then we rode a few rides before calling it a day. We made a stop at the candy shop so Daisy could pick out a special cupcake. I had brought a candle so we lit it and sang to her.

Once home, it was time for the dollhouse! Once it sunk in what she was seeing, Daisy really seemed to enjoy playing with it. She was pleased with her bear family and looks forward to getting more furniture. It is currently sitting in the living room and I don’t know that it has anywhere else to go.

The End!
