The "Lost" vacation

We ended our summer with a fun filled four days at Disneyland. We thought it would be fun for the kids to stay in the Disney hotel and get to use the park as much as possible. When you have little kids it's hard to pull an all day/night at Disneyland. Thus staying right on the property let us come back to the hotel for a nap in the middle of the day. It was wonderful. The kids had a great time and did really well. I think by the end of the trip the girls were not so happy to see the stroller. They would give you a bit of fight when they were being strapped in. Not bad for two little ones who are not yet walking and spent most of the days sitting in the stroller.

We had dinner at a character dining place called "Goofy's kitchen". It was really fun. You sit and eat and the characters come to your table and you get to visit with them. It would have been even better, but Myles needed to poop after not going for 4 days, so off we went to the bathroom, SIX times. Only to be told after getting on the potty, no poop, done. ARGGGGGG. Oh well, we finished dinner and headed to our room for some much needed sleep. When we got to the room Myles went into the bathroom and did a "Big Job" all by himself. I couldn't have been happier. It almost made the six trips to the bathroom at dinner worth it. You see Myles has been potty trained for about 2 months now, but only pee. He hasn't wanted to go poo in the potty. He would still prefer to do it in his pants. I don't know why, if I did I wouldn't be having this problem. Anyway he was told by Mickey Mouse that he could poop in Mickey's toilet. So that's what he did.

We visited both California adventure where there was a really fun Mickey Mouse clubhouse show that had all the puppets from the favorite cartoons that Myles watches. He could have stayed in there all day long. He LOVED it!

We played in the water @ California Adventure, rode the huge Ferris Wheel and a few other small rides and then we spent the rest of our days over in Disneyland. It was lots of fun. Myles especially loved the Buzz light year ride. And of course the Dumbo ride is still his favorite.

No pictures you say...well the last night we were there I put the camera in our bag, but didn't zip it up, and I think that it must have fallen out as we exited the park. I'm really sad about all the photos from the previous 4 days. And not to mention that the camera itself was only about 6 weeks old. Mom bought me a new one after it went swimming in July. UGHHHHHH.....Oh well what to do. Go buy a new one? Yep, and quick, it's almost Myles third birthday. ( I don't know how that happened. He was just a baby a few weeks ago...)

Oh man talk about bad luck.
I'd be so upset.
Sounds like fun though and congrats to Milo on the poop.

I didn't know Cal Adventure land had anything for littles, I thought it was more a teenager park. Hmmmm, now I'm rethinking the 2 day 2 park pass...

Sorry again about your camera.

We just went yesterday. Shane loved Buzz Lightyear too (Natalie was scared of it), and they both loved Dumbo.
