Sophia's second time there. Ross' first as a dad. We've got season passes so we're committed. ;) And I'm glad----- I am. But it's kind of hard with the little one. MUCH easier with Ross there, but still a little hard with one that can't walk but is NOT always content in the jogger. It actually may have been just fine if Ross hadn't throw his back out upon arrival when lifting the jogger off the tram.
Don't get me wrong. It was Disneyland, and so it was magical. ESPECIALLY the parade. I LOVE that parade. And the ice cream. I LOVE eating ice cream at D-land. (But I had it set in my head to get some during the parade, and we hadn't had dinner yet, so after fighting my way through the crowds to find Ross and the girls holding three dripping, melting sundaes while everyone stared, I ate a huge sundae on an empty stomach and drove all the way home sick-- oops am I being negative again?). Anyway-- of course if I lived 20 minutes away, I might want to go weekly for a couple of hours in the afternoon. It is a pretty extraordinary place. But I think it's going to get a little bit better as Mila gets older and Sophia gets less afraid of all the super noisy, psychedelic rides (honestly, they didn't seem so freaky until I was sitting next to my already scared three-year-old, but they are REALLY trying to saturate your senses in those indoor ones.) Phew!
So here's a few pictures.

I Miss having those passes. I think Roxanne, Shari and I were nuts because we did it by ourselves with 2 kids each. But after listening to your story I wonder what were we thinking?!

I am from Walnut Creek and grew up with the Biesingers (Ross was a year older then me). I have seen your blog as I "blog surf" through other YV ward friends and love your pictures and witty, fun posts. I also love your music and may steal some songs if I ever put music on my blog.

I don't know if you know Ashley Miles (who also is from WC) but she just moved to Palm Springs and has two cute little girls. Her blog is in case you haven't been in touch. She's a lot of fun. Just thought I'd say hello and let you know I enjoy reading your blog. Tell Ross I said hi!

I took Nate to Disneyland without Wes when he was Mila's age and it was a little tricky for us, too. Walking is a GREAT milestone!

VERY jealous of your season passes.

Sophia is the yummiest little thing!! Her little tummy and legs in leggings. So cute.

CUTE! I really like Sophia on the carousel. Those are fun. That party for your Dad looked amazing - was that really in THIS desert?

I can't imagine two kids. Sawyer is enough for me to have there. Fun though. I love all the Halloween decorations.
