Vacationing because Levi is THREE!

We decided to take the family to Disneyland for a couple of nights to celebrate Levi's THIRD birthday!  We had such a wonderful time on our mini vacation.  Disneyland truly is the most magical place on earth--where else do adults, a teenager, toddler, and baby all have fun?!

First stop--the pool!  Ruslana and Levi loved the water slide.  Here's Levi giving the lifeguard the thumbs up:

After a day of swimming, we went to dinner at Downtown Disney:

Ruslana's wearing my sweater.  How did this happen?!

Next up, California Adventurer: 
One of my favorite pictures, ever. 


That evening my mom and sister met up with us at the hotel.  We had so much fun at a pizza restaurant in Downtown Disney.  The kids got the most amazing balloon animals and we ended up with some great photos taken at the restaurant: 

It isn't vacation if you don't get dessert, right?  Here's grandma Jill sharing her ice cream with Marigold: 

Awesome Daisy balloon 
After dinner, we headed back to the hotel where the little kids watched Mickey cartoons in the lobby and Ruslana and I went to play in the arcade:

The next morning we woke up and it was Levi's BIRTHDAY (July 18th)!  Does it get any better than waking up at Disneyland with some balloons and presents?  I'll answer that, no, it doesn't.  This kid is livin' the life! 

We met our family for a character breakfast, which was AWESOME! Levi lit up seeing the characters (but poor Marigold wasn't a fan of them!).

 Levi loved us all singing to him!

After our fun filled breakfast we headed back to Disneyland park for our final day:

Then, as Marigold says, we had to say "bye-bye!" 

See you soon, Disneyland! 

And just one more, because how cute is Levi trying on his pirate costume birthday present?!  I mean come on...

Marigold's First Birthday Party

On Saturday, June 18, we had Marigold's first birthday party.  She LOVES Minnie Mouse, so that was her party theme!  






We are so thankful to have had our closest friends and family come to celebrate our sweet baby girl!
