A Disneyland Hangover

We just had one of the best weekends ever.
On Friday we headed to Southern California for a wedding and then on Saturday morning we surprised the girls (& Luke) and spent the next 3 days at Disneyland & Disney's California Adventure.
 We got home from Disneyland last night at 1:30 in the morning & didn't get to bed until after 2 am.
Waking up for school this morning was BRUTAL. And, I mean BRUTAL.
  I have a Disneyland Hangover.
I played hooky from school for 2 days, so I am behind on emails, grading & lesson planning.
I am too tired to unpack or start laundry. You don't even want to see my laundry pile.
I am behind on my 40 Bags in 40 Days.
My feet & legs are sore from walking (and standing in lines) for the past 3 days.
My back hurts from bumpy roller coasters & from sitting in a car for 6 hours on the drive home.
I am sunburnt, exhausted & ate way too much junk food.
But it was worth it. Sooooo worth it.

One of the best weekends ever.
This is the stuff memories are made of.
I hope the girls will always remember their first trip to Disneyland.

{It's a Disney miracle! All 3 kids are smiling & looking at the camera!}

I can't stop smiling & thinking about our time at Disney.
More to come......I took A LOT of pictures. Stay tuned :)

  9. Looks like such a blast! Love their shirts. Too cute!


  10. Love Disneyland--it has been way too long since I went. Marc had a conference in LA in 2004 and I tagged along. He played hooky one day and we went--left Coop at home! :D In our defense, he was only 6 months old, so it is not like he could exactly ride Space Mountain!

  11. How awesome! The last photo is too sweet. It sounds like you need a vacation after the vacation. I can't imagine going to school the next day after that. I think brutal was the best word to descirbe it. I can't wait to see more photos!

  12. Can't wait to see all of your pictures. I love the last one of the kiddos in their precious MiMi and MeMo outfits (as pearson would say!!)

  13. We are lucky enough to have passes and I feel like it is the first time every time we go. I love it! I'm so glad your family enjoyed your trip. I love the kids' shirts.

  14. What a special surprise! I'm glad it was such a special weekend!

  15. So jealous! Loved the matching outfits, it looks so fun!

  16. what a FUN surprise!! and its so true that as parents we need a vacation from our vacations!! ;) great pictures!!

  17. I know that hangover feeling well! But you must have had a doozy of a hangover because I only go one day at a time, but I must plan the next day as a lazy day so I can recover. We usually spend 6-8 hours in the park and then head home and the next day I feel like I was hit by a truck. A whole weekend would kill me, either that or I would need to find the margarita stand over in California Adventure.
