Happy 5th Birthday Ryder!





 My middle son Ryder made his birthday plans in July. His birthday is in December! He made some pretty darn good plans too! His agenda consisted of a ride on Hyperspace Mountain and The Little Mermaid, and dinner at his all time favorite restaurant The Rain Forest Cafe. So what do you do with that request? You take a jaunt to Disneyland!

 The lucky duck got to take a day away from school to fulfill his birthday wishes! The best thing about his birthday being in December is that it is our FAVORITE time to be at Disneyland. Besides the huge crowds the holidays draw there seems to be just a little bit more magic in the air and we can’t resist it! Ryder got to take his trip on an X-wing and ride Hyperspace Mountain and then on the opposite side of his personality we did ride The Little Mermaid.

 At dinner our whole family met in Downtown Disney to celebrate our five-year old. He ordered his chicken nuggets and per his request we sang Happy Birthday to his bowl of dirt and worms.

 Ryder is such a joy and blessing to us all. He is honest and genuine and is still in that cuddly stage that I hope never goes away. He makes me laugh everyday and is so smart and witty! I love watching him grow but secretly wish he would stay little forever! I cant wait to see what year five has in store for my Ryder Aaron!e1014 e1015 e1016 e1017 e1018 e1019 e1020 e1021 e1022

Happy Birthday Heather


 For my birthday we decided to go away for a “Family Moon” to the Disneyland Resort. We basically live at Disneyland and wanted to go and take our time walking the resort and finding good food for this preggo birthday girl!

We stayed for five days and four nights at The Grand Californian. We were upgraded to a theme park suite and to put it simply…it was Sweet! The boys and Freddie went to Magic Hour every morning and got on all the cool rides I couldn’t ride this time around. I made sure to grab my loaf of sourdough Mickey bread and butter and I absolutely had to eat at Carthay Circle.

I tried to troop through but there were many moments that I thanked the heavens we had a hotel room and i could go put my swollen self up on a pillow. This was the last trip we took to Disney before our button arrived. It was the last trip with only two boys. It was a trip that I will remember for the rest of my days and I can only hope that the Disney birthday trips to come, will continue to get better and better. With three little boys.
