This disney trip was a little bit different. Since we had just recently been, and I took both kids without Jazz, and I’m almost 8 months pregnant… we cut some corners. First of all, I didn’t bring my big Nikon. Just too much to carry, too much to worry about- and I don’t love to leave it on the stroller when we ride rides. So all pictures are iPhone. We drove down family style, in the Suburban, Mom, me and the kids, Morgan and Margo. We all stayed in one big hotel room- Isabelle got to sleep on the top bunk and I’m pretty sure it was the highlight of her trip. She felt so grown up. IT HAS A LADDER, she kept telling me.
This trip was 100% kid stuff. No grown up rides. No fast passes (my dad would have been appalled.) Just toddler territory but it was still so much fun. There is still so much to do! We did parades and shows and nap time under a big tree in Bear Country. It was a little bit busier than last month but we were there for park open every morning- helps to be early! One of my favorite parts is watching the kids see their favorite characters during the parades. Iz loves the princesses, Margo went nuts for Tinkerbell, and Lincoln practically jumped out of his seat when Mater drove by. Izzie’s favorite ride- Dumbo, teacups, and the merry go round. Lincoln’s favs- monorail, the railroad, and heimlich’s choo choo.

Also, the park at 31 weeks pregnant? Totally do-able but also a little exhausting! We walked a ton, to and from our hotel and all around both disneyland and california adventure. We logged about 38 hours in the park and about a million miles. I almost stole someone’s moby a couple times and yes, fine I was waddling a little bit, but I made it! Thanks a lot in part to my mom and morgan for helping juggle all of my children. I drank a bunch and didn’t have any swelling in my feet really until the very last night. Then, kankles.
