This year we were able to go to Disneyland as a family! (We even got to take Grandma, which was so much fun!)
We loaded up in the car early on a Sunday morning, with the back of the black suburban packed to the brim, kids in jammies and carseat, prepped with car games, snacks, drinks and plenty of movies and books and blankets, stroller tied down to the top, whistling in the wind as we drove. I was very worried about the drive. I actually had nightmares. I mean who takes their husband, mom, 4 year old, 5 year old, and 15 month old on a 12 hour car trip? The kids actually did SUPER though! They hardly whined or complained and ended up enjoying the trip. (phew)
I made matching shirts for each family member. When we go again I will do this for everyday we're at the park. SO easy to keep track of your kids (and husband) when their shirt stands out! On our first day we started in fantasyland with the dumbo ride.
