Ahhhhhh, so excited!

Woo hoo!!

We just booked (most of) our trip to Disneyland!!

Tim and I are going in mid-May. My parents will be watching the kids during that time.

We reserved our flight and hotel room today. All we have to buy are the park hopper tickets, but I figure that can wait until we get closer to our trip date. Unless I find an awesome deal before then, that is. :-) Looks like our flight will be the cheapest part of the trip. Who would've thunk it??

Note to my mom: After reading hotel reviews for hours, we decided on the Best Western Anaheim Inn, not the one I told you about over the phone. This one got good reviews, was priced right and is directly across from the park. The other one was a little cheaper, but got awful reviews. I don't want to stay in a hotel where people have complained of bugs and dirty rooms!

I am so excited!!!!! We haven't had a real vacation in several years. I hope to take Kara to Disneyland within the next few years (Matty will have a wait a few years after that, poor kiddo), so this will give us a better idea on how old she should be before we take her. I haven't been to Disneyland in more than 11 years, so the memory is a little foggy, but I know she's too young right now to go on the rides we want to. Space Mountain, the Matterhorn, Pirates of the Caribbean and Splash Mountain come to mind.

I am supposed to ride the bike. It is now late, since I spent so much time researching for the trip and booking things, so I don't know if I want to work out now. If I do, I will come back and post my stats. If not, well, guess you will see me later. LOL!

OK, I rode the stationary bike after all. It wasn't great, but at least I did something. I will try a run tomorrow if the weather isn't crap (like it has been for days now).

Today's stats:
Time: 30 minutes
Distance: 7.82 miles

Gosh Michelle, Isaac just loved, loved, loved Disney. He went on a ton of rides and had the time of his life! There is so much for that age to do. Everything from Playhouse Disney to Pooh Bear.

That is so exciting. You will have a great time.

I have never been to Disneyland. But my kids have - without me. I have driven by, does that count?

Ah, wish I was going to Disneyland :-) Do they have a marathon there?
