With the hustle and bustle of all of my DT commitments, I really haven't had a chance to update with what's going on in my world aside from crafting!
Back in August, we went to Disneyland!

I had a chunk of days off in August so I thought we should take the kids to Disneyland! We got annual passes back in January and I knew we needed to maximize our trips to make getting the passes worth it. People ALWAYS ask me and for those who are wondering: if you get an annual pass, you break even after two 3-day trips. Anything after that, you come out ahead! #winning
We only did a 2.5 day trip - we wanted to do a longer one, but sadly, life calls (translation: school started) and it just wasn't in the cards (translation: we broke. LOL).

So how did we tackle such a short trip? Honestly, we've been to Disneyland SO many times and we have our passes so we never feel like we NEED to do everything in one trip. We ride a handful of rides, wait in a ton of lines, eat the food we look forward to, walk, and then repeat.
We just love being at Disney.

So with the selfie stick ban, I'm getting good at taking these selfies, don't you think? LOL
It was our first time going without our DSLR camera and we just used our phones. It was actually really freeing - we didn't have to lug around a heavy camera, we didn't have to keep tabs on who had it or who was responsible for carrying it, etc. Our quality of pictures aren't the greatest, but I'm so happy that we all just had a good time, instead of being so focused on taking pictures. It's all about creating the memories, not just posing for them.
(I just love Cars Land. I'm always so amazed at how REAL everything looks.)
As we were walking around the park, a really nice couple gave us their World of Color FastPasses. How very kind of them! We have never bothered to try and watch a World of Color show - mostly because it's kind of late for the kids and our patience and tolerance for large crowds is pretty low by that time of day, but who were we to refuse the kindness of strangers?
We heard it wasn't the *best* WOC show, but we still enjoyed it.
And the kids got their daily churro and popcorn fix.

I hope you all liked my post today! I'll be back for more Disney adventures SOON!
Thanks for stopping by! :) Have a wonderful week!
