We Love Disneyland!

We're having a blast! Fantasyland is definitely the place to go. It's safe. It's fun. We have not seen a lot of characters but we have enjoyed every ride so far. At the end of every ride, Jack has said, "Again, again". He's been great about getting out though. We just tell him we're gonna go ride something else fun!

In the limo

J J did not want to come but Hai Fei and Simon are coming along with us.

Patiently Waiting

Ha ha! Just kidding. Jack's gone for a walk.


Jack took a pic with really nice squeaky Shrek! J J snapped the good photo. I was a little slow so all I got was this. I'll post J J's pic when we get back home.

Pink's Hot Dogs

J J swears it's famous and worth the hour or so we'll wait in line. At least we wait outside & there's a breeze.

Golden Arches

It's McDonald's on Hollywood Boulevard. We're not going there so it was hard to get a good shot.

Redondo Beach Pier

Taking a rest by some lobsters.

We're in California!

Here's the great view from J J's balcony. We're one elevator ride, and a couple sets of stairs away from the beach! It's kind of cool up here with the ocean wind coming in. Jack's already pointed out the "big pool" to us then he clarified "day pool" since it's daytime. :)

Irish's 1st Plane Trip

I told you Irish goes everywhere with us. Thank goodness he travels as a "lap ball" and does not require his own ticket.

Flying for Fun

For the first time in his life, our little frequent flyer is flying for fun We're on our way to California to visit Uncle J J. Look how grown up he is. Not only is he carrying his own carry on. He's also helping to push the bag we're going to check. sniff little guy...such a helper.

Calling All Carseat Inspectors

We're getting ready to head out to California. Part of getting ready means removing the seat back, head protection, and 5 point harness from Jack's super safe booster seat and converting it to a plain old booster. Eeeeek! I'm very anxious about it. I bought the super safe booster because I want my cherub super safe. Ahem...the hubby and I *agreed* Jack meets the requirements for a backless booster and it will make transporting the booster so much easier. So, all you safety inspectors out there, take a good look at the picture and tell me, do I have the shoulder belt positioner in place right? Does this look right? Jack's stats:4 years old, 42 inches tall, 43 pounds....oh some body reassure me....and get me a sedative....

Hmmm....Oops! I just checked the ingredients. Cracker Jack has no dairy anyway. Guess it was Crunch n' Munch he couldn't have. Ooops!
Ever not let your kid have/do something 'cause you thought it was not good for him/her only to realize later that it would have been fine? Feel free to comment here and make me feel better. :)

Cracker Jack!

Some of you may remember the boxes of Cracker Jack we gave out when Jack was born. Well, at 4 and dairy allergy free, he's having his first taste. It's a hit!
