We're back...we had a blast! The weather was perfect! In fact, we were a little "overdressed"...we could have worn shorts! It wasn't crowded, in fact our longest line was 45 minutes for Finding Nemo, which is not a great ride. kinda boring...Cooper wasn't a fan. We walked onto most of the big rides...Pirates, Haunted Mansion, etc. The kid rides were a bit longer, but about 20 minutes max. It was perfect!

The boys did great! They loved the rides! Spencer's favs were Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain (he calls it the really fast train). Cooper liked the Matterhorn and the Tea Cups. He loved the parade, too! We stayed for about 12 hours and the boys were really good. The stroller was wonderful...highly recommend it. Spence likes to stand in the back.

I was exhausted by the end of the night. Lots of walking! I got quite a few looks from people while waiting in line in the Matterhorn and other rides like that. BUT of course I wasn't going on it...just waiting with my boys. It worked out great for Joe. He would ride with one child, then when the ride was finished, we would swap out a child, so he got to ride twice!

Our hotel was pretty great, too. We always use Priceline now, so we got a great room at the Anaheim Hilton for about 1/4 of the price! Plus, we got upgraded to a new room with comfy beds and flat screen tv's because they didn't have the room I called about earlier for us. They are undergoing renovations, so I had called to request two queens and far from renovation. That wasn't the room they tried to give us, but by being nice and a good dealer (Joe), they upgraded us. Nice! We slept pretty good both nights! The boys even slept in until nine on Saturday!

We met Chip, Vicki, and Lily yesterday at Downtown Disney at the Rainforest Cafe. Cooper and Lily did not like it! The animals move and there are thunderstorms every 1/2 hour...both of them are not storm fans! Poor Daddy, he had Cooper on his lap for his whole meal. Cooper wasn't letting go of Daddy! So, if you have small children, maybe skip that place. Spencer enjoyed it, though!

Now we are home again and have all the unpacking to do!

Congrats to Nicole, Danny and Riley on the birth of baby Noah on Friday!!! Can't wait to meet the little guy. :-)
