Yo Ho, Yo Ho!

I absolutely love this picture of Dalton, walking to the bus after 5 1/2 hours of Disney. He complained that his neck was getting sunburned, so I gave him my hat. And he is "whistling" Yo Ho A Pirates Life For Me.

Double Disney Dates

On Monday night, Maggie and I went with some friends to Disneyland.

Saturday, John took Dalton early for a Daddy-Dalton-Disney-Date.

We met up later and went to the Animation Studio for the first time.

Sick Week in Pictures

Everyone took a turn being sick this week, so we didn't do much. 

Sienna got a new car seat. She is now forward facing.

And thrilled about it.

We got out the slide to help with boredom. (Also note the cute ponytail and blowing kisses to her sister).

I did several unplanned organizing projects. I dug out all the craft supplies to go through while they used some.

We also did some organizing in the garage, and swept.

Hide-and-seek, except no one was seeking.

Sienna is obsessed with this Spongebob pj top. This was a messy pony, PJs at 2pm, strawberry stain, cricket bat-wielding kind of day.

Donuts on the way to Disney.

Possible non-Disney highlight of the summer: watching the lifeguard rescue a mouse that was dog-paddling in the kiddie pool.

Some Imagination, Huh?

Picnic after staking out our Fantasmic! viewing spot.

Sienna goofing off while waiting.

Waving to Ariel.

Watching the fireworks after.

We got home around 10:30. The kids did ok (well, Sienna kind of lost it on the bus back to the parking lot, but not too bad for so late). But I think we'll get a babysitter to do World of Color.

Sunday Naptime

Sienna after church on Sunday. She made it all the way through nursery with no parents for the second week in the row. Even though she had eight hours of sleep the night before (Fantasmic) and got bit by a friend. 

Her night-night ritual currently involves two blankies, two babies, Olaf, Ariel and waving goodbye. This nap, she had a bonus Ariel toy and Fisher-Price ride-on horse.

Also, her sweet pigtails. This is the first time I fixed her hair since she yanked out a chunk in London trying to get a braid out.

Fun When Grandma Comes

Grandma came to visit!

We went to Crescent Bay beach.

First picture ever taken by her on an iPhone.

The second picture, after cropping ;)

I snapped this as Maggie came running up. Apparently, she'd been tossed by a wave.

We also went to Disneyland!

More Sienna + Pluto BFF.

Hey look, all four of us on a ride together! That's MY kids' grandma staying with the baby, yep yep.

She claims this is her second time riding Dumbo (ever). It was Sienna's second time that morning.

Trip to Yogurtland. Not only was this not posed, they were doing it long enough for me to debate taking a picture, get out my phone, actually take the picture, and then some.

We went to Pump it Up. Sienna hated bouncing, but she liked climbing on the giant blocks.

And we went to the pool so Dalton could show off his made swimming skills.  Sienna got a new floatie and loves it.
