When Evelyn was 2 weeks old, I was having a rough go with Post Partum Depression. Aaron decided that he was going to plan a Disneyland trip to give me something to look forward to and hopefully give me some light at the end of the tunnel. I was excited, but at the time (Januray!!) June seemed forever away, and the thought of Evelyn being almost 6 months was unfathomable. But it came! Here’s a quick look at the highlights of our holiday. The first ride we wanted to go on was Peter Pan’s First Flight. Evelyn fell asleep in the Ergo.
And of course I wasn’t without a caramel apple cider, made with extra magic. Evelyn’s reaction to her first time seeing/hearing fireworks was priceless. Evelyn was such a happy girl in Disneyland. It was the least fussy she had been all month. She would take great naps in the park.
DOLE WHIPS! The happiest frozen treat on earth. Evelyn’s favorite Disneyland souvenir…a wrapped spoon. She loved the way it crinkled. This is just a fluke photo. She was actually SO happy to be in the Ergo. She loved being carried around and looking at all the people and things. She barely fussed at all. We didn’t bother with the stroller at all. It was so much easier to carry Evelyn around. The Ergo was incredibly comfortable, and bebe was the happiest. Win win.
We took a break from The Magic Kingdom for Aaron to show Evelyn and I his stomping grounds. We drove all over Ventura county seeing the houses in which he grew up. He took us to this amazing strawberry stand down the street from one of his houses. With no exaggeration, these were the BEST strawberries I’ve ever had in my life. And I’m a strawberry snob, so I would know!
We took the girls to build a bear to make their twincess.
I will never be too old to leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy.
