And... we're off!!

It's been nearly 2 months since planning our vacation to Disneyland, and we will finally be on our way in less than 12 hours! Riley still has NO IDEA where we are going, making this all the more fun. We've been spending most of our time focusing on Tyson and Cooper, and their exciting visit to their friends Rylan and Raegan's house. They also get to spend a few days with Aunt Robyn and Cousin Cassidy, so they're pretty stokes (well, mainly Tyson because Cooper is completely unaware of anything going on).

Tomorrow morning (Wednesday), we will drop the boys off at the Petersen's and head to the airport. Riley will be receiving a very special phone call around 10a.m. from none other than Mickey and Minnie Mouse! We're still not sure if we'll break the news to her before then or not, but either way I think she'll be pretty excited!

After a couple days of listening to all the fun the boys are going to have with their friends, aunt, and cousin, Riley finally looked at me on Monday and asked, "Where am I going?". When I explained she would be going to with Mommy and Daddy, the "Where are we going?" questions began. It's been fun to hear where she wants to go... mainly we've been hearing she wants to visit Grandma and Grandpa... only once did she actually say she wanted to go see Mickey Mouse... I quickly changed the subject! :)

We are all packed (well, except Rick, who likes to wait until the very last minute), lots of yummy meal reservations have been made, appointment at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique is on the schedule, and I can't wait. What can I say, I love all things Disney!

And apparently Saturday is the 55th Anniversary of the Disneyland opening, so there are a few special events going on... fun!

We are not bringing a laptop on the trip, only the iPad to watch movies on the flight, so I will have a TON to post about when we return early next week. Stay tuned! :)
