The Big D

Last Wednesday night some of our favorites descended. Erica and her brood had a fever, and the only prescription, was Disneyland, CA Adventure, and Hotel Ladera Land. I am so glad.

They're hilarious and sweet. J gave me a hug just because he was so happy with my choice of Orange Juice (Tropicana 50 -- he clearly has been taught 50% fewer calories is better than 0% fewer calories). The girls, per usual, asked for any opportunity to help around the house. They all made me feel like a million bucks when they'd ask to be my partner on a ride. And while the older kids and adult(s) went on the rides that are not recommended for "Expectant Mothers," I had a little pal (who did not yet meet the height requirement) to hang out with me and go on the carousel or play Angry Birds. I got QT with ALL of them! Yes, members of the Hayes and Reynolds families and beyond, I know you're jealous, and I'm going to rub it in good with some adorable pictures!

I just hope they were having fun. Sometimes I wondered. :)

Disneyland improves 50 times over with kids in tow.

One of the Disneyland employees told me I should name the baby Mickey or Donald or Walt. Jeff and I chuckled politely, and then realized she was totally dead serious. And I swear Jeff and I didn't match on purpose.

Just imagine the possibilities when an arrow is carefully deposited into the Wheat Thins!

My non-roller coaster riding companion with a bed head to be proud of. Erica tells me he has the same hair as Jeff at that age -- crossing my fingers way too hard for the blonde gene to dominate!

That lovely song from White Christmas comes into my head when I look at this picture.

Thanks for coming, my dears! The door to Chez Hayes is always open.

And I'm still pregnant. How does that work?

You amazing that you went to Dland pregnant. Also, I'd like you to know that I know what you'll be naming your baby and I'm telling Go just to confirm that I called it when he makes his debut with this particular name.

Yes. And I meant to say You amazing. Because, ooo girl, you amazing.

Mickey Walt Hayes. It has a nice ring to it.
