This year I really went back and forth on wether or not to give Jackson a big party. Then I decided why not, you only turn 2 once so I booked the park and started planning. Steve came home and said I booked the campground we are going away to Disney for Jackson's birthday! Party plans stopped and Disney planning started!!! To be honest I really just didn't feel like he "needed" the big party this year so I was kind of relieved! Matt, Emily and Ben were coming with us. It was Ben's first time at Disney and Emily hasn't been in years!!!! We also brought Ashley along to help with the kids (really to help the parents) She was a huge help! It is always nice to have an extra hand! Also we were able to sneak away to a nice dinner on Saturday evening. It was such a great trip, a day of Disney for the kids, a day of relaxing and enjoying the camp ground, an adult evening out, and a peaceful ride home!!! Everyone was happy!
I know that most people think Disney is high stress, or "to much work" but as a family we love it! Our kids love it! We make our Disney days about the kids and enjoy every moment when we are there and when they start melting down as all kids do we gracefully call it a day!!!

|The kids really did have a great day but this picture from the end of the day is classic! I think this might go down as my all time favorite photo from Disney|

Our dinner date out at California grill! The last few years Steve and I have enjoyed out anniversary dinner here but last year in was closed for a remodel. They have made some beautiful changes. We enjoyed a rooftop fireworks display and an awesome dinner the company wasn't bad either!!!
