Day 122. Road Trip.

Today we are off for the ultimate school field trip. The happiest place on earth. Thanks to Disney’s Give a Day, Get a Day program, we were able to plan an amazing end of the year field trip for the kids. You can read about our adventure as volunteers here.

It took us about 7.5 hours to get down to Disneyland from Sacramento. It was a longer trip than normal. We had a LOT of stops on the way down. I would like to blame it on the kids, but really it is due to my pregnant self and LA traffic.

After we arrived at the hotel and unpacked, we jumped in the pool until bed time. We stayed right across the street from the pedestrian entrance to the park. It’s an awesome hotel.

We decided to make the trip four days before we left. Too bad I didn’t have time to get the kids hair cuts. My darling daughter looks a bit like Cousin It. She does have a left eye under there, I promise.

My 11 year old has aspirations of the Justin Bieber look, so we are o.k. with the lack of hair cut here.

and then there is Emma. She could care less about her hair, but she strikes a pose at all times…even partially submerged in water.

It was a crazy day getting out of town. Sometimes, I feel like the Griswold’s. However, then I remember, if we were to travel next year at this time, we will have a 5 month old to add to all the blessed choas. Suddenly everything seems calm.

Now there are just 48 school days left until summer.

    I think your oldest looks like the daughter from The Incredibles.
