I wanted to add one little video, though many of you will not think it as cute as we do. This is the second day at Disneyland and we are heading to the park about 5 minutes to opening time. Apparently, the girls did not think we could get there soon enough because the refused to walk with us and insisted that we "run super fast!" You can just tell that they think they are going about 100mph! It was adorable! They could not wait to get back on the rides!! Oh, you will also notice that Morgan keeps her left arm bent while the right one flings about! This is because she is used to running with Bear Purse on her left arm. It gives her a sort of Phoebe run!

I know everybody is wondering where my post is about our trip. Well, here it is. We spent 5 days at Disneyland with the girls while we left Miles home to be passed around by Grandma and aunts. We are SO appreciative of everyone who helped watch him while we were gone.
Anyway, we had so much fun. I didn't realize how much "kid" is left in me. I was almost giddy with excitement on Space Mountain (my favorite ride of all time!). Morgan was really nervous about all of the characters, but Elle would run full speed towards them and push aside any poor child or adult who happened to be standing between her and the character. She couldn't get enough. We chased Buzz Lightyear around the park for 3 days, and finally caught up with him on our last day. She was ecstatic! Both girls' favorite ride was the teacups...not mine though! Morgan loved to spot Sleeping Beauty's castle and the Matterhorn in the park! Didn't you used to be able to walk in the castle and go up stairs and look at things? Maybe not.
We also got to eat dinner with the princesses. They would go around to each table and sign books and take pictures. I don't think Elle has ever been happier in her whole life! Every time we get in the car now, she asks me if we are going to Disneyland. When I tell her that we are just going to the grocery store or to pick up Morgan, you can see her heart just drop. We will definitely have to go back in a year or two. Oh, one more thing. The girls also loved throwing money into fountains. We told them to make wishes when they threw in their pennies. Morgan would always say, "I wish I was a princess!" and toss her coin in and we would ooh and ah over how cute she is. Then Elle would shout, "I wish for money!" and chuck her coin in, too. It was adorable! All in all, a wonderful vacation!
