Seal Beach and Lunch at Ruby's

 We couldn't go to California and not take in the ocean.  But, it was cold!  And, for all our planning we didn't anticipate the kids getting soaked.  Luckily we had clothes in the car to change into before we walked the pier.  We brought a loaf of sourdough Mickey bread with us to eat, ran in the waves and played in the sand.  There's also a nice little park that the kids enjoyed.

 The restaraunt sits at the end of the pier and we got a table right by the window so we could look out over the ocean while we enjoyed our burgers and shakes.  It was a nice way to end our vacation!

Vacation is over; it's now time to turn our minds and hearts to Easter and then onto the end of the school year.  We had a great time as a family and can't wait to go again!

Disneyland - Day 3

Mickey was hidden in the details all over our room.  We had so much fun looking for him!

 The Magic Morning is very worth it - no waits!!!

 Waiting for the train into Toon Town
 Toontown was amazing, so much detail, so many funny little things to see!

 Goofy's House

 Donald's Boat "Daisy"

 Trying to call Oma on the Funny Phones

 We swam at the Disneyland Hotel's pool every day since our pool was being remodeled.  We didn't love the extra walk every day, but the pool had more slides and was very impressive!

 We really loved the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail at California Adventure...Wish we had a few more pictures, but the camera battery died. 
We had an amazing time at Disneyland!  We laughed, we played, we didn't cry very much...we are so thankful we had the chance to do this as a family!
