fun at the magic kingdom!

We spent a day last week at "the happiest place on earth"! At least that's what some people call Disneyland. I think that might be pushing it a little bit, but we did have fun! It was busy and the line ups got long, but we found little quiet spots throughout the day to rest and relax and catch our breath in the shade.

We got on a little train that chugs around the entire perimeter of the park and this sign was right in front of us. Bella said "So I guess you're not allowed to dance on the train. We have to stay sitting down"! I thought that was such a cute interpretation of this sign! 

The girls loved seeing the princesses. They no longer wander around the park so we had to see them at this show and meet them afterwards. I love the look of wonder on Bella's face as she met Cinderella! 

We saw the new "Mickey's Soundsational Parade" - the floats were great as was the music. The girls were excited to see Arial on her float.  

I'm not sure who was having more fun on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. Thor loved "driving"! We all finished the day tired but happy.

The next day we drove to Pasadena to visit an urban homestead that I've been reading about online for years. Here's the link if you'd like to learn more about them. The Devrae family homesteads here on .10 of an acre! They grow enough for themselves as well as some restaurants and a porch farm stand. They also have bees, chickens and a goat! So inspiring to see it firsthand!

            From there we visited Kidspace - a very fun, interactive kids museum. The kids enjoyed all    the different things to do and explore.

We are now on the Central Coast with John's folks and family, enjoying some downtime and connecting with family. Before I get to that though, I'm going to do one more post to get caught up from last week.
