I broke the cardinal sin of taking the boys out of school at lunch to go to Disneyland. Since I was breaking the BIG SCHOOL RULE I decided-- what the heck-- I mine as well take my nieces out also-- So I did and off to Disneyland we went. We met Karen and Kailee and some new friends Tanya and Gracie. Tanya adopted Gracie from China one month after us in June 2007. Gracie is just a few weeks older than Mia and they got along so well. Karen and Tanya are neighbors and they met and became friends so it was great being able to meet Tanya and her beautiful Gracie and get to hang with them. I’m sure we will have many more Disney Days!!
When we were getting on the tram we saw a huge group of Chinese students who were visiting from Chengdu Szechuan (sp??). They were very curious about Mia as well as Owen and my niece’s hair. A few of the girls actually stroked their hair and seemed to be totally tripped out by it. They also were fascinated by Mia and while they didn’t speak much English they seemed to understand that she was adopted. I asked them if I could get a picture of them with my kids and they were very nice and obliged.
Our traditional Disneyland Entrance Picture. We have to take one everytime we enter Disneyland. Always a cute picture.
While waiting for Karen and Tanya, Mia decided to climb on some rocks by the Indiana Jones Ride. She is such a climber and did really well on the rocks. Such a cutie!!
This is a video of the kids on the Carousel:
