Disneyland in December 2016

Hi everyone, hope you all are getting your Christmas shopping done (I know we’re not there yet).

I survived a Disneyland trip during the holidays, with a 22 month old, at 6 months pregnant (phew). We recently just got back from our trip to Disneyland in Anaheim, CA with Jack’s sister Tracy, her husband Alberto, and their daughter Crystal. It was a 7hr drive from northern California.

With me being 6 months pregnant, I was scared I would be tired, in pain from back aches, or cranky, but I really enjoyed it. I barely feel pregnant as it is, so I felt fine. As long as I had my comfy shoes, water/snacks, and lots of bathroom breaks, I was happy.

We were there for 3 days, and each day we walked around 7-8 miles (crazy). We did so much walking, and tried to go on every single kiddy ride. We watched the Christmas parade, Paint the Night parade, saw the fireworks, enjoyed the festival of holidays parade, the Holiday World of Color water and lights show, and I got to enjoy my first experience tasting Pineapple Dole Whip (which was amazing)! This trip was mainly for Jovie and Crystal, so the focus was for them to enjoy it as much as possible.

It was worth every minute. Especially with Jovie being 22 months old, we figured she would be at that age to start to understand everything and enjoy it, and she did! I was worried it would be too much stimulation for her with all the people, music, lights, rides, and just all the commotion, but she was fine and took it all in like a champ.

Jovie loved the parades; she danced, clapped her hands, and waved at all the characters. She met lots of characters and met Santa (she cried when she met Santa). She said hi to the characters by their names and blew them kisses, it was amazing to watch.

I’m not gonna lie (maybe it’s the hormones) but I would get emotional watching her get excited, she just had a blast and it makes me so happy to see her enjoying herself. I had more fun watching her get excited!

I finally got a chance to sit down and go through our photos. Combined we took around 1,000 photos, but I narrowed it down to 187 (you can click on the first photo and scan through them).

Hope you all enjoy these photos, as always, thanks for stopping by!
