Two and a half straight days of Disney will do that to you.

Grammy Terri came over yesterday with LOTS of birthday gifts. The girls got some cute new clothes, swimsuits, pool shoes, snacks, and some rollerskates! We immediately suited up and went outside to try them. The girls did very well, with some assistance. Charlotte preferred to walk in her skates, but Rachel actually skated. That's the opposite of what I thought would happen. Charlotte is usually our daredevil!

We decided to take the girls to Disneyland for their birthdays, and we've just blown back into town. Whew! It was a ton of fun, but also very exhausting! Since we were already taking advantage of another deal, the girls didn't get free admission on their birthday. However, you can still choose to get a ticket for another day (within a year), a fastpass for the day, or a gift card in the amount of admission. We went for the gift card so that the girls could pick out some birthday goodies. They got birthday buttons with their names on them, and every employee wished them a Happy Birthday. Plus, they got some special recognition on certain rides. The pilot for the Nemo submarine had everyone wish a Happy Birthday to "Radical Rachel" and "Sharkbait Charlotte." They were a bit overwhelmed by the crowds and all there is to see, but soon overcame it. They were also very adventurous! They are right at 40" tall, which meant that they could ride most of the rides in both parks. They rode the smaller rides, of course, but also rode rides like the Matterhorn (where the "Eddie" lives), and Big Thunder Mountain. They got to meet Tinkerbell and Silvermist which, to them, was HUGE! They've also become quite the Tiki Room afficionados. I think it's safe to say that it was a birthday to remember. More pictures coming soon!

It's that time of year again. The March of Dimes March for Babies is upon us. As most of you know, Charlotte and Rachel were born prematurely (as many twins are), and received excellent care in the NICU at Doctor's Medical Center in Modesto. The March of Dimes helps to make this excellent care possible, especially for those born much earlier than we were. We'd be so grateful for any donation you're able to give, as we continue to pay it forward! Every little bit helps. Just click on the widget in my sidebar for more information.

I have such crafty friends. Two of my friends are taking their craftiness to new heights by opening their own Etsy shops. Please do visit and browse.
