Yesterday, we went to D-Land and we were home in time for him to zip off to work. I was bummed that we missed the Halloween Fireworks, but happy we got to spend some time together and enjoy the special Halloween D-Land decorations!
Paprika was tickled by all the Halloween Pumpkins- I mean, it’s not every day that you see Goofy as a pumpkin!
Paprika’s favorite Princess was out and about. Paprika was a little star-struck when she saw her. I think Paprika was upset she wasn’t wearing her SWD…today of all days!
Ginger had a fun time, too. She was very interested in everything around her- and even woke up when we went on the “It’s a Small World” ride! I think she was having deja vu!
It was Ginger’s second trip to D-Land outside the womb…and at only 14 weeks! Mr. Mustard and I commented the other day on the fact that this was only my third time being at D-Land when I was not pregnant. Our first trip last year (after Vivian and Annemarie), and then these two times bringing Ginger – those are the only times I have not been pregnant at Disneyland. But, given the fact that I babywear Ginger 99% of the time, and I am constantly nursing her…it doesn’t feel that much different than being pregnant with her! 😉
Okay, how quickly I forget…it does feel A LOT different! I didn’t have to use the electric scooter this time…although I kinda missed it!
We did put both girls in the double stroller for a stretch for the first time this trip! It felt kinda weird to have Ginger and Paprika down in the stroller while we were just walking along pushing them from behind. Strange but it also felt like freedom for my arms and back!
The best part of the day was the little petting zoo they just set up for Fall. There are goats, sheep, and even a cow (who was wearing a pink tutu for some reason). We had planned on taking Paprika to the LA County Fair again this year, but why not avoid the swarming masses and go to a barnyard where the poop is magically scooped up by a nearly-invisible support staff?
Paprika made quick friends with this goat. She has a way of finding one animal, becoming instant BFFs, and never leaving its side. Remember The Chicken?
Paprika wanted to follow this goat around all afternoon, and snuggle him, pet him, and love on him. I was starting to get deja vu!
We let Paprika stay as long as she wanted, but after 45 minutes or so, she remembered we were at Disneyland, and that we had many more fun things to do and see before our trip was done. So, she said goodbye to the goat and that was that!
All in all, a great trip!
