Triple Threat Theme Park

My cousin Jill was at Disneyland this weekend, so I took Arthur and Sienna to hang out with her in the morning.

Maggie's been hankering for some more thrilling rides, so John took her up to Knott's to take advantage of our passes there.  Still.  Yeah.

It was a good day for a companion.

Meanwhile, Dalton has been asking about going to Legoland, which we do NOT have passes for. However, our neighbor's came into 5 free tickets and only needed four, so...

They were kind enough to let him join in the fun.

Oh, was that not enough? I went back to Disney alone in the evening to spend some more time with my cousin.

Mickey's Halloween Party

We talked Dalton into Mickey's Halloween Party instead of a birthday party, and we had a great time.

Here are our Zootopia costumes.

Trick or treating at Mickey's house.

We borrowed a double stroller and these two got a nice long nap. Sienna enjoyed trick or treating from the stroller and basically didn't walk at all.

Midnight snacks.

My shoes were killing me so I walked back to the parking garage barefoot.

Dalton's 7th Birthday

Dalton turned 7 this weekend! His actual birthday was on a Sunday, so it was pretty relaxing, after celebrating at Mickey's Halloween Party

Traditional birthday breakfast of pumpkin* pancakes. *No actual pumpkin involved.

Playing Mouse Trap, a gift from Grandma and Grandpa.  He also got some cash, a new Wii game, and the chocolate pen he's been dying for.

Friends over for Rainbow Cake and singing.

Requested rainbow cake.

Dalton: First Grade School Picture

Dalton. Age 6. First Grade.
Likes to write journals.  Favorite part of school is lunch. Likes math. Refuses to smile with his teeth.

Bonus first grade homework. Dalt's favorite candy is ice cream because it's "eume" and "dlishishis."
