California Vacation Highlights:
  • Riding Jackson's first roller coaster ride with him
  • Holden's expression of sheer joy on the Nemo Submarine Voyage
  • Getting to and from DIA and LAX, and back again, with little issue -- this includes toting 2 enormous suitcases, 1 pack and play, 1 double stroller, 2 car seats, 3 carry-ons, 2 kids and of course, Shawn and I and a pocket full of one dollar bills to tip anyone who would assist us
  • Watching our boys and the Nash girls play together
  • Eating at a Character Breakfast...twice
  • Our children sleeping through the night most nights (never mind that they woke up at the hiney-crack of dawn because of the time difference)
  • California Screaming roller coaster ride (big kids only)
  • Swimming in our own heated pool at our rented house in Palm Springs
  • Eating till it hurt
  • Clean potties at the Park!
  • The Paradise Pier Hotel on the Disney property
  • Jackson's love of anything that was ridable - especially Autopia (we stood in line 4 times for it)
  • Fast Pass
  • Disney at Christmas
  • Monday night, our little family walking around the California Adventure boardwalk, everyone happy and glowey
California Vacation Lowlights:
  • No decent coffee/espresso
  • Boys who wake early become boys who are cranky
  • Travel can induce marital stress and needless bickering
  • Lugging gear
  • Paying $2.75 for every diet coke I consumed
  • Holden's immense dislike of all Disney characters, especially Gepetto!
