Pit Stop!

Could there be a better photo to display at Mia's wedding?!?! On our road trip to Disney last weekend Mia decided that she needed to go potty at the most inopportune time... Like in the middle of the Mojave desert! Thankfully Momma had planned for just such an event, and we got to try out the handy dandy Mr. Turtle! So here she is on the side of the road, head phones on, drawers dropped, without an ounce of shame!! Childhood innocence is a wonderful thing...

Disneyland Getaway!

Seven months after the invasion of the twins, we decided it was time to get away for some quality Mommy, Daddy & Midget time! Grandma was kind enough to drive down from Colorado and watch the babies while we took off for a long weekend at Disneyland. Mia's cousin, Nick, is always a great addition to any family trip, so he joined us for the trek. Mia adores him, and he's great with her. We had an absolute blast hitting rides, hugging characters and just generally partying it up! No bed time, as much chocolate as we could eat, and lazy mornings!! Wooo hoooo, that's the life...

Trick or Treat Disney Style!

Halloween turned out to be a great time of year to visit Disney! Not only did they have the park all done up in halloween decore, but they had a special night of trick or treating in the park on Friday evening. It took about 15 minutes for Mia to decide she wasn't wearing her costume, and then about 5 more to decide that maximum candy could be garnered by sitting in her stroller and having Daddy push her quickly through the crowds! Truth be told, she was slumped over snoring about 10 minutes after this picture was taken...

Beating the Disney Heat!

Unfortunately it got a little warmer than we anticipated at Disney! By mid afternoon, we'd had enough of standing around waiting in lines in 85 + degree weather with humidity... So we hightailed it back to the hotel pool and cooled off on the water slides. Mia was in heaven!


While we were waiting in line for the 3D movie 'A Bug's Life', Momma saw a photo op that she couldn't resist. Mia looks liks she's getting mugged by Pluto! I'm thinking the heat was beginning to get the best of the midget by this point... She was a trooper!
