Guys! In March we spent over a week in Cali
It was seriously such a great, magical week of pure, unadulterated family time. Our little Asher Grace was such a trooper and could not have been more enjoyable as we walked around the parks. She actually added so much to the trip as we carted our sweet little infant around. She has always been a champion sleeper and learned to take naps in our arms walking around while we were on our trip. We knew we couldn't take a trip to Southern California without a few days at Disneyland so we booked a room at the Grand Californian that we absolutely loved. It was overlooking California Adventure (right over Goofy's Flight School) and had bunkbeds in the room for the girls. But I'm getting ahead of myself. We of course broke up the trip with lunch in St George (Tom's Deli and Croshaw's Pies) and ate at the splash pad on Main St while the girls ran around and spent some energy. The past two trips this has helped break things up so well, I just put their swim suits where I can access them, change them at the splash pad, we eat, then they dry out enough to make it to Vegas where we usually go right down to the hotel pool. In Vegas we ate at Bubba Gump's for dinner and bought enough Sprinkles cupcakes to hold me over until our trip home ;)
We spent our first night in California at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort during a rainstorm. We ate at a beachside restaurant and then watched the waves from our balcony. It wasn't the sunset beach experience we had expected but was still so fun and memorable!
