Vaction - Day 4. Legoland!

We left Anaheim this morning bound for San Diego.  We stopped in Carlsbad on the way to go to Legoland. That was a spur of the moment decision but we had fun!  It's a cute place.  It's no Disneyland but it was fun for a few hours.  

Julianne is sleeping like the Lego man.  Silly girl!

 This is her lion face apparently.
 Waiting in line.  Unlike Disneyland, the lines at Legoland were all short!
 Cutie in a boat!
 Taking in the sights with daddy
 This is a "ride" that you have to work yourself.  You pull a rope to hoist yourself and then let go and fall.  The girls loved it.  I did not.  Not the easiest thing for my 5 week post surgery self to do!

 Driving school

 They got their licenses.  Look out!

 We finally got the girls on a roller coaster!  They both loved it!  

We left Legoland and went on to San Diego, checked into our hotel, and then went for a walk by the harbor.  We found a great little are that had a bunch of places to eat so we had dinner and then the girls fed the ducks. 
 As soon as we finished feeding the birds, we saw this sign.  Woopsie!
 Who doesn't love a cow bench?

We called it a night early so we could get some rest.  Sea World tomorrow!!

Disneyland - Day 3 (It's Bippity Boppity Boutique day)!!!

Today was our last day at Disneyland.  We made it the best one yet by surprising the girls with a visit to the Bippity Boppity Boutique!  We spent the first few hours of the morning with rides and the petting zoo.  Then, we headed over to the boutique.  The girls got to pick out the dresses they wanted and then got the royal treatment with hair, make-up, glitter, the works.  They had a blast and thought they were pretty hot stuff!  They spent the rest of the day walking around Disneyland in their princess dresses with people telling them how gorgeous they looked.  Pretty much the perfect day for two little girls!  It was so fun to watch them.  I'm so thankful for this time as a family.  It's been much needed.

They even pose while waiting in line
 Meeting Woody was exciting.  Their glee every time they saw a new character was so sweet to watch.
 You've got a friend in me
 Petting the goats

 Getting started...

 Claire looks thrilled doesn't she?  Ha!

 See?  Super excited!
 Getting the nails done
 Julianne was a fan of everything except for how much her "fairy Godmother" had to comb her hair.
 Eye shadow!
 And lips!

 Getting escorted to the royal castle for pictures (here's a tip...if you get the "Castle Package" you get to go do the front of the line for pictures with the princesses).  Totally worth saving an hour in line.

 I love this picture.  Spinning with Cinderella!

 Hand in hand.  Again.  Sister love.
 We ran into Daisy. The girls loved her heels!
 It was a pretty perfect 3 days at Disneyland!!!
Off to San Diego in the morning!  The fun continues.
