Happy Birthday Carson!

Carson turned 2 on Thursday the 7th. I can't believe my baby is 2 years old. I think with the second one ,time goes even faster. He is such a sweetheart and he brings such happiness to our lives. On his birthday Chad took him to Bass Pro Shops, and he was in HEAVEN! He is pure boy so what better place to take him. We celebrated his birthday with family at the park on Saturday. We took him to Bass Pro Shops again on Saturday night since he had such a great time with Chad on Thursday. He loved looking at the fish and sitting on all the boats, cars, quads, bikes etc. Happy Birthday Carson!

Bass Pro Shops:


We went to Disneyland for 2 days with most of my family this past week. It was soooo much fun, it was the kids first time and I hadn't been to disneyland in 21 years! It truly is the Happiest Place on Earth. They still had the park all decorated for Christmas and that made it so fun! Carson couldn't go on a lot of the rides but Ella was able to go on most of them. I was impressed with her riding all the scarier rides...she went on Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Matterhorn..Her favorites were Dumbo, Small World, and Splash Mountain. The kids both loved seeing all the characters and Carson enjoyed all the rides in Fantasyland. The first day we got there they had the marching band at the front of the park and Alice in Wonderland was out front, out of all the people at Disneyland the first person she grabbed was Ella to dance with. Ella was in heaven! Ella's cousins Kelsey and Sophie also got to join in and dance with Alice. The 2nd day we were there Alice was out there again with the Mad Hatter and Ella and her cousins got to dance with her again. Chad was also recruited for a line dance, which was HILARIOUS!!:) We went to California Adventure for half the day on Tuesday, they had some super fun rides and we saw lots of characters there too. It was so wonderful to share this experience with my family, and for the kids to make these special memories with their grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. We already can't wait for our next trip to Disneyland!!!
