Disneyland

Thursday was Steve's birthday, and since he's such a great dad, he decided that he wanted to take the kids to Disneyland for the big day. (The free admission on your birthday did help inspire the idea.) We left Wednesday after school and headed straight to Huntington Beach so we could eat at Wahoo's. We don't get to eat there often, so we were a little excited. Just after we got our food, Roman, who had been coughing all day, started coughing so hard that he threw up. Poor Steve ran him out of the restaurant and tried to avoid getting hit as Roman threw up three more times. So we boxed up our food and left, skipped the beach and went straight to the hotel. Sad, sad, sad.


Thursday went much better. We gave Roman some medicine and it seemed to make him feel much better. It was either that or Disneyland. Our favorites of the day were Autopia, where Roman and Grace were both thrilled to drive, Buzz Lightyear Astroblasters, where Roman got to play "hurt and kill", and the roller coaster in Toon Town. I didn't think that we'd be able to get Grace to go on the roller coaster. But Roman had gone first with Steve and liked it, and Grace just couldn't let her little brother outdo her.

After waiting for what seemed like forever in a line to meet some princesses, Grace informed us that they aren't really princesses. They're just people dressed in costumes. (When did she get so grown up?) She did pose for pictures with them anyway. Roman, however, wanted nothing to do with the princesses. He told us, "No! That's for girls!"

It was a really fun day. Maybe we'll do it again the next time one of us has a birthday. :)

How fun. I'm glad you guys got to go! So sad about the restaurant. You're probably laughing about it now, though!

Looks like you had a great time, other than the throw up thing. I'm so jealous. We were trying to save up to take the kids there after a Nov. wedding but the wedding was pushed up to next month so we won't be able to afford it. Ahhh, one of these days. I'm glad you had fun. Happy Birthday Steve!
