At the beginning of each month Blake and I always go over our calendar, which typically consists of appointments, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, etc. This month we couldn't believe it was already April and Blake's busy season will be here in less than 3 months! So we decided it was time for a little road trip and some fun! I can't imagine a better place for fun than Disneyland! We left Tuesday morning and did not stop once! Carter slept almost the entire way to Anaheim. We checked into Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and were off to the park Tuesday evening. We rode a few rides and had dinner at our favorite place, Big Thunder Ranch BBQ! We woke up Wednesday morning and were at the park right when it opened. We rode rides, took pictures with lots of characters, ate plenty of churros, ice cream, and other snacks, visited with Heather and McKenzie Motichko and had the best time! Carter's favorite ride was Dumbo. We rode it twice and he smiled and squealed both times throughout the whole ride. He LOVED it. He loved meeting the characters. He would laugh, smile, and grab at their faces. We have been watching Mickey Mouse Club House, so he was very familiar with the characters. It made me so happy to see Carter get so excited and so happy to ride the rides and see the characters because Disneyland is my favorite place ever! We also hit up Disney California Adventure on Wednesday. We basically went to both parks on Wednesday and it was so nice to be staying right in Downtown Disney so we could go back to the room to rest and Carter could nap. We had the best time.

On Thursday we got up and headed to The Grove for lunch, shopping, and celebrity stalking before heading home. Extra, the entertainment news show, films at The Grove. I love seeing it live and meeting the celebrities that are being interviewed. I have been several times since they started filming at The Grove in 2010. I actually have made friends with some of the workers. When we arrived, Mario was interviewing Audrina Patridge from The Hills. I have met her before in Las Vegas and I already have my picture with her, but was lucky enough to get another picture today. We had lunch at the Marmalade Cafe, did some shopping and headed home.

What a great couple of days! A very special thanks to my sweet hubby for taking us to Disneyland, staying at Grand Californian, waiting in lines for character pictures, and going to The Grove today! You are amazing and I love you!
