For Will's 6th Birthday Andy and i decided to take him on a quick California adventure. He had never flown on a big plane and since his daddy is a pilot and all, we thought it was about time. So, we made arrangements with our wonderful grandparents to take care of the other 3, put ourselves on stand-by tickets and hoped for the best. Amazingly, we got on the first flight, Andy and Will even got to sit by each other and we arrived in CA by 9:30am.
Will's primary wish was to see the ocean, but then his Nana offered to give a day in Disneyland to him for his birthday...so, we got off the plane, our super fabulous friends picked us up and let us take their car to the Magical Kingdom.
His favorite part of disneyland was, by far, everything pirate related. Although, he was extremely reluctant to go on Pirates of the Caribbean, and we started feeling like bad parents for pushing him to go through with it. Thankfully though, he had a great time and now calls it his "favorite ride ever" and wants to go on it 5 times in a row the next time we're at Disneyland.
We stayed all day, watched the parade and the fireworks, went on nearly all the rides and didn't leave the park until closing. It was a great day with lots of memories. Then we drove our friends' car back to their house and stayed the night with them. We are SO thankful for the blessing of such wonderful friends who hosted us all 3 days!
The rest of our little vacation was spent just hanging out, shopping, relaxing and playing at the beach.
Will absolutely loved his first ocean experience. He was adorable.
On our way home!
