Well, Saturday did not go as well. It was very cold, and rained most of the afternoon and the evening. Here are the highlights (and lows, as well):

  • Took forever to pack and load the car. Didn't leave until after 10AM and thus my bad mood was beginning...
  • Couldn't figure out why I was in such a bad funk all day. I was acting like I had PMS, but I'm not sure how that is possible, given that I don't have periods right now...
  • #3 refused to wear a poncho. Refused ALL DAY. Didn't help that he didn't get a nap until 5:30PM (in the stroller, walking back to the car), and because he refused the poncho, got soaking wet.
  • #2 whined all day and refused to cooperate even in simple things --but at least she wore her poncho
  • Luckily, #1 had a good time.
  • We did a lot of shows, versus rides. By the time the rain started pouring at 5PM, we were spent --the weather, the bad attitudes (mine included) and being tired sent us car-bound.
  • Kids were very happy to be warm and dry in the car. We started driving towards Simi Valley (DH's mom lives there).
  • Tried to find a nice restaurant for dinner. Decided that after spending $50 per meal inside Disneyland for fast food, spending $50 for a nice meal was worth it.
  • Finally went onto Ventura County (after finding nothing) and got to a Macaroni Grill. Yummy! Our bad moods disappeared. :)
  • Got to "Nana" and "Papa" 's house. Put the kids to bed. Crashed ourselves.
  • Disneyland Vacation over. How sad it had to end with rain...
