Easter Pics & Disney prep

Easter has come and gone so quickly. So has the 1st 3 months of this year. WOW, it's amazing that it's already April. We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Day with your family & friends.

We took the girls to the Galleria Mall the day before Easter to get their pictures taken with the Easter bunny. The girls looked so cute in their Easter outfits. They did pretty good with the bunny...Kyra at first, then she got kind of scared and started to cry on his lap. We at least got 1 pretty decent picture out of the many they tried to take. Here is the results.

As of today, we have 1 day till we leave for Disneyland. It will be the girls 1st trip to Disneyland. Aiden seems excited for the most part. We fly in on Thursday afternoon. The cool thing is Aiden's been saying for months that she wants to go on a train everytime she sees one when we're driving somewhere. Well now here's her chance. When I booked our airfare on Southwest a few months back I didn't realize how far Burbank actually was from Anaheim. It's at least over an hour and a half or so. So luckily Jake was able to find that the Amtrak goes from Burbank into Anaheim right near our hotel. YAY!!! From the hotel we can take a shuttle to Downtown Disney or Disneyland itself. That being said we will have literally rode a Plain, Train & Automobile all in one day. Hopefully our journey isn't anything like the box office movie. Ha-ha. 8)

We are going to have so much fun. It's great that our cousin Amber and her little daughter Allee are meeting us at our hotel and going to Disneyland with us. We are all super excited. We can't wait to see the expressions of the girls the first time they see a character in real life as opposed to on TV & books. Aiden's especially excited to see the Princesses. I don't think she particularly cares which one she sees as long as she sees one. LOL

Disney offers autograph books that you can buy for your kids in the park but I opted to make each of the girls one. I used the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge. I put holes in the bottom and put rings on them so that they could flip like a binding book. Inside there are blank white paper for the characters they see to sign the books. The cool thing about the books, they can use them year after year instead of having to buy a new book. Pretty cool, huh?

I will be taking our laptop so I'll be blogging about our trip and adventures. So be on the lookout for new blog emails. Have a great weekend everyone! See you next blog.
