Disneyland 2

Day Two of Disneyland was a smashing success. Eli didn't deem any of the rides as disasters that I can remember so right there you know you are on to something. He didn't like Alice in Wonderland though but I never heard the words "that was a disaster."

We started the day off in California Adventure. I thought we would be there for the whole day but we ended up only staying there for a few hours. The first four pictures are of us at C.A.

The fifth picture is of Eli with his Mickey ears. They are so cute on him. He almost got a really generic baseball cap because it had the plastic size adjuster in the back. You know the cheap ones that no one wears anymore. When I told him that you can get your name on the Mickey ears though he changed his mind. Yes I AM that kind of parent.

We loved the CAVALRY sign in the next picture because Stewart is a cavalry officer.

Tigger was our favorite character because he was so silly with Eli. There's a cute picture of Eli hugging Tigger too but I liked how Tigger was teasing Eli with his Mickey ears.

The last picture is of Eli on the bus back to the hotel. We had been on the bus for about 5 minutes. Do you think that we wore him out?!

Our only problem that we had today was Eli telling us that he could go swimming without us now because he's "a really good swimmer." This prompted major discussions by us of course! Now I'll probably have nightmares of Eli drowning. I will for sure be signing him up for swim lessons as soon as we get back.

Side note: Eli no longer wants to name our next baby "Chloe." He now wants to name it "Sprinkles." It doesn't matter if it's a boy or girl because "Sprinkles is a really cute name." After Eli met Chloe (Stacy's baby, come on keep up) he became a little obsessed and even asked Stacy who was her favorite kid. When Stacy said she loves all her kids the same Eli said that his favorite was Chloe.

I am so happy you are having such a fabulous time! Sprinkles is a great name for your next baby.

Fun trip! I'm jealous.

Sprinkles was the name of Angela's cat on The Office. Dwight mercy killed the cat (may she rest in peace) so I guess now the name is up for grabs. It's Eli's for the taking!!!

Looks like you guys are having lots of fun. Only Stewart would notice the Cavalry sign. LOL If you don't want to use the name Sprinkles for your next baby maybe you could hurry and get a pet and name it that. Then you could tell Eli the name has been used in the family. Thanks for keeping us posted on what a great time you are having.

If mom doesn't like Chloe, I'm sure she will after you name your next baby sprinkles.

I have to add, that Eli seemed a little disappointed when I didn't pick Chloe as my favorite!!

I wish we were there with you guys!!! Did you do the Bugs life ride in C.A.? It's a good one. Did Eli like pirates of the carribean? My kids LOVED that one.

I can't wait to hear more about your trip!!!

Tell Eli that if I ever get a Niece or Nephew named Sprinkles that one will be my favorite for sure.

I am so jealous!! I hope you have a great time! I miss running into you in Kentucky.

Oh it looks like you are having so much fun! I'm glad there were no disasters (Sprinkles aside ;) )

It's true, Eli heard the name "Sprinkles" when Becca and I were discussing the office.
