We just got back from our trip to Disneyland and it was so much fun. Mikayla was so good, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip. She slept in the stroller and Steve's arms when she got tired and when she was awake, she just looked around at everything. I was worried that it would mess up her schedule, but since we've been home, she has adjusted back to her old sleeping routine. I can't wait to go back again.

These were Mickey ears that I got when I was 12 when my family went to Disney World

In front of California Screamin, our favorite ride (Steve and I)

We ate at the Blue Bayou which is a restaurant in Pirates. I like her pirate hat

In toon town, trying to escape. (I love her face in this picture)

We met Mickey Mouse at his house and Mikayla was obsessed with his nose

A couple months ago, the Handy side had pictures taken of the grandchildren. We went to a woman who provides costumes so that the kids can dress up in different themes. We did the princes and princesses theme and they turned out really cute. A couple of weeks after the sitting, the photographer called us and asked if she could use the picture for advertisement. We said yes, and haven't thought much about it since then. Today we got the weekly fliers (you all know, the big mass of advertisements that just ends up in the trash) and I was going through it and, lo and behold, I found Mikayla's picture. I feel like such a proud mother. My baby's a celebrity. (If you can't tell, I said that dramatically). The picture here is a little small, so just click on it to enlarge it. The photographer chose the picture with just the girls.
