Spread The Word for Olga

For Emma's 9th birthday, instead of having a party she decided to take a friend and go to Disneyland. So yesterday was the big day. Ella got to go as well. It wasn't her first time but the only other time she has been was when she was 5 weeks old so that doesn't really count. During October, they have a Halloween theme throughout the park and this is the first time we have been there for it. So it was fun to get different pictures than usual. I was adamant about getting one with Mickey and Minnie but didn't want to spend out whole day waiting to see characters so we didn't get any of the other characters. One of these days I will have to take Ella and just get her with all the characters. It was a great day and Emma even got to get her face painted (something we wouldn't normally spend the money to do). Ella was good as gold as usual but we did find out that she doesn't like loud noises in the dark! The only times she cried the whole day were when we did the Jungle Cruise and during the Fireworks. On the Jungle boat, we were seated right next to the very loud engine and it was dark and she cried the whole time. Then during the firework show, they had VERY loud, spooky Halloween music playing during the fireworks which of course were very loud themselves. She didn't like that either which is peculiar since she had no problems with the fireworks at 4th of July. I think these were just too close and too loud. Not to mention that these two things that made her cry were both at the very end of the day at 9pm. Enjoy the pics....and to those of you who live out of state....here is a good reason to come visit us!!!

Can't believe you have a disneyland right where you live...what fun and how lucky! I love the picture of Ella hanging out by the fountain with her arm resting on the wall, she's too cute and I LOVE her outfit, she's really one well dressed baby! Looks like the kids had a great time, hope it wasn't too tiring for you? What a wonderful birthday gift for Emma.
