We spent the week recovering.

Disneyland seemed like a good place to do it.

We chatted with princesses, played with cousins, visited my grandparents, ate at Ruby's, and enjoyed the California air. I don't know what it is, but there is something so completely pleasant about that air.

We had so much fun! The best news is that Stella is her old self again, feistiness and all, and we couldn't be happier about it. It was worth waiting in the princess line just to see that little half smile.

Disneyland isn't the most magical place when you are only ten months old, but Elliot was a good sport.

We ate dinner on my grammy's porch and my kids played with the toys I used to play with when I was little. I love my grandparents' house. It is one of my most favorite places to be.

As fun as Disneyland was, every five minutes or so, Oliver and Mabel would ask if their cousins were home from school yet. They couldn't wait to get back to their house and play. Thank you for having us, Matthew and Katie!

We had the best time.


  1. I'm so glad she's feeling better! Poor girl. I'm sure Disneyland helped her forget alllll about it.

    And I agree, the air is wonderful. I think it's the humidity. Yum.

  2. That IS a great way to recover! How fun!

  3. Wonderful! I love Stella's haircut and Elliot's smile. Glad Stella's feeling better! I was so sad when my Grandma moved (when I was in college) from the house she'd lived in my whole life; I would love to have taken my kids there too. So glad you could have a fun trip! I was thinking about you guys today when I saw your house; I went to a baby shower at my aunt's. See you Monday!

  4. Next time let me know when you're in town, I can take you out for dessert or something! Glad to hear Stella is feeling better...that is no fun to have your little girl not feeling herself. :(

  5. oh california! it's been so long... and i love the half smile :) and LOVE that pic of elliot - oh my goodness!

  6. I was so glad you were here. Love those kiddos and love their Mommy and Dad. Thanks for coming. Glad Stella is back to herself and hopefully Mabel is feeling better too.

  7. I know! we never see eachother here! It was fun running into you, though! :) I am glad Stella is better and that half smile is killing me. she is soooo cute.

  8. it really is the happiest place on earth.
