Anne and Daddy at the end of the day.
After Sea World we spent the next few days at Rick and Sarah's and had just the most fabulous time. I would venture to say that our time with them was one of the top times of the whole trip. The kids played perfectly the entire time. Jamie was distracted by them and even though Allie (their youngest) is 3 they still had baby toys and a high chair and pack and play so we felt well taken care of. We stayed up at night drinking wine and chatting and just had such a lovely time.

We met up with John's father and his niece Jasmine on Monday and went to...drum roll please...Disney Land! I have to say I was a bit weary of going...Jamie (I assumed) would have to be pushed in a stroller all day long, pacified and someone sitting off rides with him the entire time. It was nothing like that! Jamie went on every single ride we went! That's right, at Disney Land, the happiest place on earth, babies can ride the rides too! Not only that, after being up all day, dragged from ride to ride and not in his element, when Buddy Boy needed some comfort, I was able to nurse him on the rides! It was great! If getting to Disney Land didn't require a 5 hour plane ride I think we would go at least once a year!
After Disney Land we drove back 4 hours to John's parents' house where we spent the next 4 days just hanging out. We got to spend time with his sister, niece and nephew as well as his parents. Jamie had his first bite of cake there as his birthday was only a week away and grandma and grandpa wanted to celebrate with him.
All in all it was a good vacation-there were lots of really nice surprises and we all had a great time!
