Finishing Disneyland

By our last day at Disney we were pretty exhausted. As I mentioned, the premier for the new Pirates movie was taking place, so a lot of that side of the park was closed and/or super crowded. We just rushed through lots, but the one thing the kids spent a lot of time at was Tarzans Treehouse. They walked through a couple of times and just loved it every time. We also did the Pirates ride first thing and they thought that was so cool. We rode the train and did the haunted mansion and the Big Thunder Railroad. Splash Mountain was closed, which was a bummer, but I guess we'll do it next time; which will be in 3 or 4 years when I have the energy again:)

The boat ride was so fun becuase of our tour guide. She was so funny and Emmary was just eating up every word she said. I think she really thought the animals were real until the very end. Juliet is wearing a cute princess dress we got for Emmary when she was 9 months old and Tim and I did Disney without her. Jules looked so cute in it and it was fun to connect the 2 memories.

One of the last things we did was see Assimo the Robot in Tomorrowland. I actually stayed out with Juliet because you couldn't have strollers in and she was asleep, but the kids and Tim said it was so cool and they have been continuing to ask if we can have an Assimo in our house. I say if it will help me clean, I don't care what sort of robot comes to live with us!

And of course the strange name of the road in the middle of nowhere Nevada. We left Disneyland feeling like we were ready to leave, which is a good sign. We didn't leave feeling like we had missed something. We left with no regrets and exhaustion from a good time. The kids have fun memories and they loved most minutes of it, and I couldn't ask for more. It was a learning experience, and now we know things we want to do again, and a couple of things to do different. All in all, I am so happy we went when we did and got to have some good memories with our family of 5 before we become a family of 6!
