Elizabeth loves having her friends over, especially when we do crafts. We were lucky enough to have Bubba and his little brother over to play and we made our own little windup toys. They had a lot of fun together, Elizabeth always looks forward to when they get to come over.

There is defiantly a different atmosphere between Disneyland and Universal Studios...let's just say I missed Disneyland. However, I don't know if it was the weather, but Universal Studios was not that busy, so that was a blessing. We still had a lot of fun, and I think Ryan's favorite things was the back lot tour. The 3D King Kong was super awesome! I would have to say mine was the Water World show! Love that show every time!

Have I mentioned that I LOVE Disneyland! I love everything about it. I love that it's magical, I love that I can be a kid, I love that everyone is happy, I love the characters, I love the rides, I love that I can leave my stroller and not worry something will get taken, I love laughter and smiles, I love the gift shops, I love watching people. I just love the atmosphere of Disneyland and I will miss it and will look forward to our next vacation here!

I have decided that you can't come to Disneyland without experiencing the incredible character dinning! We have always done the breakfasts because we love breakfast food, but I'm sure any of meals are fantastic! This year we decided to do a Princess Theme breakfast at Ariel's Grotto. Elizabeth was in Heaven! She couldn't even eat she was to excited to see the next princess come out! It was so worth it to watch her giggle and get her autograph book all ready. She seriously couldn't stop smiling, it was the cutest thing!

Oh how I love the magic of Disneyland! I love walking in and reading the sign: Here You Leave Today, and Enter The World Of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy! That is exactly what we plan to do the next three days!! I think our favorite ride of the day was Finding Nemo...what a cool ride! We also learned that Elizabeth loves roller coasters! She was like begging to go on California Screamer but she was to short. She said her favorite ride of the day was either Thunder Mountain or Space Mountain. All this time we thought she was shy, we really she is quite Brave!

I can't tell you how much Elizabeth LOVES animals, so she has been looking forward to Sea World for weeks! It was fun to watch Scarlett's reaction to the different animals too! They both would just giggle. At the end of the day we asked Elizabeth what her favorite animal was that she saw. She said the Sea Lions, because they looked like GrandMerry and Papa's dachshunds and begged like them too. It was pretty funny. We went back to the Sea Lions for one last look, and she was right, they did have a funny resemblance to my parents dogs, lol. I have to say that I have never been to the Dolphin show, and it was so crazy to see how high they can shoot out of the water. I was still amazed with how big those killer whales are, that they manage to completely get their body out of the water entirely. It was amazing. I think we learned the most about the Sea Turtles, they were super cool. I think Ryan's favorite was getting to pet the kangaroo. I couldn't get over how soft they were, and they were so darn cute! It was sure a fun day though, but I am excited to get out of the rainy weather and get up to Sunny Anaheim for some Disney Magic!

We made it to San Diego in one peace! The girls did pretty darn good for being in the car that long and happy to get out of the car. We were all happy to fall asleep listening to the ocean and the excitement of going to the beach the next day!

I can't hardly believe how quickly five years have past us by! It just amazes me how the years have past. I feel so grateful to have our little monkey girl brighten our lives a little more each day with her beautiful smile and contagious laugh.
Elizabeth is very into owls, and so of course when I asked her what can of party, she said owl party.
It was very interesting to have 13 little 5 year old children running around playing musical chairs, pin the owl on the tree and especially the pinata. I will remember to never do a pinata with little kids...it was a little scary when the candy went flying and kids came running but there was still swinging action from the stick going on, lol. They all seemed to have a lot of fun though.
Elizabeth was spoiled with all sorts of gifts. It was fun to see all the smiles and giggles while she opened presents.
I was able to round my mom into helping me sew owl wing caps. They turned out super cute! Then I also made some owl masks that I think the kids really liked.
We of course couldn't go without a family photo!
