Long or Short Version?

So do you want the long or short version of how disneyland went today?
Long: Girls woke us up at 6am. showered, played, got ready, went to continental breakfast at 7:15. Put Cara down for a nap at 7:30am!! Rich left with his brothers to go to the park for the early birds and then I left with my sister at 9:30 to get to the park by 10. Shuttle is late, double strollers stink, weather is perfect so we are all stinking hot in the sweaters I put on everyone. By the time we actually get to the park I am exhausted. We go on its a small world- FABULOUS. Ryann and grandma mingo have the time of their lives. We go on peter pan, dumbo, winnie the pooh, pirates (where I nursed my baby easily!), Buzz and more. Eat an expensive lunch and around 2 we start to leave to give the girls a nap back at the hotel. Once again I am braving the shuttle with just my sister and 4 children and two strollers- horrible. Then Cara doesn't nap, Ryann jumps on the bed for 20 minutes before finally falling asleep and then I actually have to wake her up 2 hours later to get back to the park. A couple carousel rides and a monorail ride later we get to our dinner with my aunt and uncle. Great food and the kids are surprisingly well behaved until we realize we missed the last shuttle and have to walk home. That leads to Ryann pretending to be a dog and not getting up off the floor. Eventually we get the kids in strollers, slings, and arms to have a 30 minute walk home without Rich again. And as soon as we walk in the door of the hotel Rich walks right back in behind me because he was able to get a ride home. Ahhhh.... and here I sit. Still writing and still wanting to go back for more tomorrow.
I love Disneyland.
PS... pictures will be posted soon

sounds like Rich needs a talkin' to! ;)
I am so very happy you guys are having so much fun but so very sad I can't be there to see Ryann's excitement with the characters and Ethan's excessive energy. Also, I want to just sit by the little ones and watch them hang out together.
OH and the weather here is wretched--LA sounds good to me for sure!

Erin, such a polite way to describe my Ethan... Brittani, also polite not mentioning that having her sister + 2 kids along for the day was A LOT more work for her... especially the late night walk home where she handled Cara, Ethan & Ryann and I handled Addison. LOVE YOU and hope you are enjoying your day!!!
