Bye Disneyland.... for now

Our Disneyland passes expired and we have to take a break for awhile... it's just too expensive! We had such a blast though and the kids really love it. As frustrated as I am that Disneyland has raised its prices, it still remains a really great place for families to spend time (and we don't even go on very many rides!) It's clean, the food is good and reasonably priced, and they have a ton of things to do for little ones. We will definitely miss our Disneyland weekends. Perhaps Santa will be generous for Christmas 2013 and we will renew.

Totally amazed by the parade

My kids sure do love their Auntie Torrey!
Carter is still terrified of the Disney characters but Archie loves them all!

 We also went to Medieval Times recently. I was not sure how the kids would react (and if they would sit still!) but after a few initial tears because of the screaming and clapping, they both realized how fun it was and joined in the cheering!

Baseball. It is one of the only sports that we both enjoy. Dave and I can't wait for our boys to be old enough to start playing tee-ball and little league. There is a huge baseball field in our neighborhood but typically the kids just avoid it and play on the playground instead. But the other day, we found a baseball at the park and Carter asked if we could go play. So off to the field we headed and now they both love it! We run the bases and practice throwing. Basically I just encourage them to run as fast as they can for as long as they can and then naptime is a great success!

We sure do love our neighborhood!
