Disneyland October 2011

Yesterday we went to Disneyland for Brynna's very first trip. She had so much fun and when she first saw the castle she let out a load "Wow!" It was so cute. We met her three favorite Disney characters Mickey, Minnie and Tinkerbell. Most mornings are spent with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse while she eats breakfast and mommy gets ready for the day so she was so excited to meet Mickey, she ran in and gave him a big hug! And me and Shawn deserve Mom and Dad of the year awards since we waited in line an hour and a half to meet him

She woke up this morning and told me she gave Mickey a big hug- so at least it was memorable for her too!
We also got to go through Minnie's house and she absolutely loved the kitchen- we couldn't get her out.
She loves to spin so was loving the teacups
Pixie hollow. Absolutely worth the wait! She was talking away to Tinkerbell all about how she is her (Tinkerbell) for Halloween and got a wand and shoes and a hairpiece. It was so stinkin' cute

Her telling Tinkerbell and Iradesca all about it
Buzz Light Year Ride. She thought she was all that was cool with that gun.

And Tarzan's tree house. She has never seen Tarzan but anything that lets her run around and climb is right up her alley.
It was such a great day and I loved being able to show her around one of my favorite places. Next up: Halloween!

Three Years

A couple weeks ago Shawn and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary. In some ways it feels like it has flown by, but in others it seems weird that I ever had a life without him. The last three years have been more amazing than I ever thought possible, and it just gets better everyday. Through all the ups and downs there is no one I would rather spend it with.
Since we were married on leap year, our deal was that every four years when it was our actual anniversary we would go on a big trip. The plan is to go to Italy next year and I could not be more excited!
3 years ago I made the best decision of my life, and I can't wait to see what the rest of our life brings!

Early in January Shawn and I, along with my sister Alycia and Greg all went to Riviera Maya Mexico to celebrate them graduating with their Master's and it was amazing!!!! I am so glad we went and that Alycia and I finally talked our husband's into it :o)

These were the Villas we stayed in and they were absolutely beautiful
They had this awesome bar that had swings all around it that you sat in, and I am now determined to do this in my house someday

The beach was amazing- perfect white sandy beaches, water so crystal clear and blue you can see all the way to the bottom

By the way, do you love Shawn's Dunder Mifflin shirt? I think that is his new favorite

We went to the Tulum Mayan Ruins which I have to admit, I was not excited about, but they were amazing! And the beach is one of the top 10 most beautiful beaches in the world so it was very worth the trip. This is Shawn doing his Hulk pose. Don't ask me why, but I love it :o)

This was the beach at Tulum, seriously the most beautiful water I have ever seen
It was so relaxing and so great to be able to get away and spend time in paradise with each other. We love to travel (Well, I love to travel and after all the traveling I have forced Shawn to do, he loves it now too :o), and I can't wait to see where we go next!!
