First and for most… Disneyland! Happiest Place On Earth! It was Oaklee and Jamaine's first time ever going. I think I was more excited to go then the both of them combined.
Jamaine was already in California "working" and Oaklee and I flew in early one morning. I woke Oaklee up at 6 am, mind you she usually doesn't get up until 8 or 9.. so it was an early morning for her. She slept about 30 minutes on the flight so I thought for sure she would sleep in the car on our way to Disney, but no she didn't! Jamaine was making comments that she better not sleep so she could get his "moneys worth" haha.
Once we got the LA, Jamaine was there waiting to pick us up - Oaklee was literally so excited she hugged him for 20 minutes straight. Cutest thing ever. She missed her daddy. She didn't want to take her eye off of him all day. Any chance she got to get out of the stroller she would cling to him. He was in Oaklee heaven.
Ok, so back to the point of telling you why her sleep or lack there of plays in. She did not nap the ENTIRE day at Disney. She was an angel baby too! It was so much to take in for a little 1 year old. Daddy def got his "moneys worth"
We left around 6 the first day to go to our hotel in Hunnington. Jamaine outdid himself, We were right on the ocean. It was so pretty! We thought that Oaklee would sleep soundly through the night because she didn't get any sleep all day. We were wrong. She had night terrors all night and was up hourly screaming and crying.. it was brutal.
But we got up the next day with smiles on our faces, at least I did, and headed back to Disney and California Adventures. Oaklee was so pleasant again, she was soaking it all up! She did nap however at lunch and that was good for her and us.
Our favorite rides were: Mermaid, Poo, Bugs Land, Mickey's Toon Town, the carousel, Dumbo, and Tarzan. We also loved the parades that were put on throughout the day.
As far as characters go, she was a little scared. She loved them from a distance, but as soon as we got close she was terrified. So after about the fourth one we stopped waiting in line to get her picture. We would just show her and that was good enough for her.
We spend Wednesday enjoying Hunnington Beach. We took Oaklee on a run and then rented some bikes and went up and down the ocean. She was loving it for the first 20 minutes and then it was cold and she was miserable… She kept saying "da da da da da" Cold and tired are not the best combos for a baby. :( It was fun though, and I am so glad we went!
We drove home Friday after playing at the pool all day and she slept the ENTIRE 6 hour drive! What a sweet little girl, huh?! Her poor back was bruised from sitting in her car seat for that long. It felt good to be home, but I am ready to go again!
