Hey everyone :) Totally been slacking on posting, I got behind and thought I had to post in order but if my sister can post out of order SO CAN I! So here I go with Disneyland! The last time me and Nathan were in Disneyland was almost 4 years ago on our honeymoon. We had a blast but I do have to say one has never truly experienced the joy of Disneyland until you see it through the eyes of a Disney loving 2 1/2 year old. (I promise I only brainwashed her a little to get her to love Disney but she is a pro at loving it) This was I think my all time favorite trip to Disneyland, even though it came off with a rocky start of Kayana getting carsick 2 miles away from our hotel. She said to me "Mom, I don't know what happened!" through many tears. I replied calmly "Honey you puked." Her reply "Mom I puked, I puked." Which then made me and Nathan start laughing and her giggling. This kid is such a trooper and hilarious and she knows it.
Meeting Cinderella's Fairy Godmother and Mouse friend. Kayana has never seen Cinderella so she was shy around her. I was so excited to see her I've only ever seen her in the parade.
On Dumbo one of Kayana's favorite rides we went on it a few times while Nathan went on splash mountain by himself.
Waiting in line for Nemo the only ride me, Nathan, Kayana, Callie, Isaac, Angie, Tim, and Jace went on together. Kayana loved it until it got very dark, we found out at Disneyland that Kayana is TERRIFIED of the dark.
Meeting Rapunzel, one of Kayana's favorite. I almost missed it because I was going on Splash Mountain by myself and Nathan decided to get in her line when I got back they were the next to go in and Kayana was super excited to tell her about the day she herself decided to color all over the wall with a blue crayon and got in trouble. They talked about all of Rapunzel's drawings and Kayana didn't want to leave.
Dancing with Mickey at his house. She ran up and gave him a huge hug it was so sweet :)
Aladdin and Jasmine, Kayana was a little unsure and made me go up with her. Had it just been Jasmine I think she would've run into her arms but I was so excited to see Aladdin, he is one of my favorite characters :)
Princess hands with Aurora and Callie.
Meeting Cinderella, mine and Callie's favorite. Our first day Kayana actually wore my Cinderella dress that my mom made for me when I was this age. I would've done a quick change for the picture but unfortunately a water bottle leaked in our bag and it was soaked so we just showed it to Cinderella instead.
Meeting Mulan.
Hugs for Eeyore.
Talking with Belle after running to her and dancing. We almost didn't get to meet her because she was about to switch out with the other princesses. The Disney worker was kind enough because he remembered us waiting earlier and let us skip the line and meet her.
Silvermist one of Tinkerbell's friends.
Giggling with Tinkerbell. Kayana was so excited.
Kayana jumped over to Tigger and everyone loved her. Tigger even jumped with her, held her hand, waved goodbye to the line of people waiting and escorted her around the corner to Eeyore's line. Everyone thought she was so stinking cute they didn't care, except his helper she kept calling to him "Get back here! Tigger where are you going!?"
Resting on the nearest bench after running around. That rest only lasted a couple seconds then she was off to the next one. She loved running around the park probably just as much as riding Ariel, and Dumbo combined :)
Smiling with Pooh.
One of her other favorite things was pushing Perry the platypus around in her stroller while telling people "He's a platypus, he doesn't do much." Everyone who has seen the show was laughing their heads off as we went past them. Sorry that it's long and out of order :) I actually have pictures of our first day on my phone that I will hopefully get on here soon. We had a blast and were sad to leave, especially to face the daunting 11 hour drive that 15 minutes in had to replace our radiator but we look forward to the day when we will FLY back there and hopefully it won't be almost 4 years away :)


  1. I love Eeyore, and seeing your little girl hugging makes me cry. That is so precious. I sure hope that one day I have a child that I can have this same experience with.

  2. Tigger got a crush on your Kayana :) how cute!!! The platypus thing cracks me up (yes I've seen the show)

    Watch out Nathan. Watch out Jasmine. Fairies has a thing for Aladin.!!!!! Can you blame her? What a hottie!!!!!

    1. Sorry kindle autotype put fairies instead of Caitie and I didn't catch it.
