Daddy Did Disneyland


It’s not yet Father’s Day, but sometimes daddy’s need acknowledgement. Because, they are pretty much rockstars! Just last month, Mr. Serious took our 7, 5 and 2 year old for pretty much the entire day to Disneyland…well, Adventure Land. He did it solo with a smile and armed with a backpack full of sunscreen and snacks and the knowledge that you can get free ice water at any counter service restaurant.

This daddy is pretty awesome! He got them all to an amusement park and they had a good time. Yes, I’ve done similar, but it just takes a special daddy to take on that challenge.

The rode rides. Sent text updates and photo updates and even stopped and used our photo pass to get professional pictures.

Even professional pictures with everybody looking in the same direction!

I admit, that night, when he even got to hang out with just the older two girls in Cars Land, I was a little jealous.

I really wanted to see it all done up at night like it is in the movie. And, I wanted to spend some time with the oldest two on fun rides. But, I knew that they needed some time together to be big kids and that the youngest two needed some mommy time. Fortunately, I was able to later head back to ride Radiator Springs Racers with my girls two days later. 


I might not always be the best at telling the hubby thank you for all he does for us, but I’m doing it now! Thanks babe for all of the fun and support! Glad I could drag you along with us to Disneyland!

The girls are asking almost daily when we will go back to Disneyland. And, secretly, I’m wondering how we will make it possible again!

Disney provided discounted accommodations and park tickets and also provided the most magical experiences and perks. The DSMM sponsors provided product and helped make the magic happen. All opinions magical or otherwise are my own.
