In April we took the kids to Disneyland! We stopped in Vegas and then did 3 days in Disney and a day at the beach. We had SO MUCH FUN. Aaron and I were actually both kind of blown away by how good the kids were. No meltdowns, no tantrums, even when Piper got fully run over by our stroller when we were at a dead run. It seriously is the happiest place on Earth! My favorite was the new Cars ride. Piper loved Splash Mountain. The other two kids loved Space Mountain. We saw princesses, ate so much yummy food and made some really fun memories. I think my favorite was watching Brighton's face as she watched the light parade. She was waving at all the princesses and it just made me realize how much of a little girl she still is. There were so many magical moments I can't even write about them all!
In May Aaron and I went to New York City with our friends Jake and Natalie Ball. They were awesome travel buddies! Disneyland was kind of spur of the moment, but we had this trip planned for like 9 months! It was also just super, duper fun. We did all the touristy things and it really brought back memories of when I lived there. It was so young and independent and fearless back then! I think my favorite day of that trip might have been riding bikes all around Central Park. We saw three Broadway shows; Something Rotten, Bright Star and Matilda and I loved them all for different reasons!
Then it was summer and we were like, "let's just hang out for a bit." So we did. We went to the pool and parks and water slides. We went to Utah and Island Park but didn't have any major trips. It was a good summer but I was ready for school to start!
