First magical experience!

Earlier this year, Brian and I volunteered at the Placer Nature Center up in Auburn for Disney’s “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” program.  Disney set out a goal to get one million people to volunteer a day’s service in return for a one day free admission to a Disney park.  The Nature Center has a nature trail, gardens, and a ton of hands on learning exhibits for kids.

Aside from the 8-hour drive down to SoCal, we all had a great time.  Our friends Scott and Jen were kind enough to let us stay with them in Huntington Beach.  Between Scott and Jen, there little ones Jack, who's 4 months older than Joseph and baby Charlotte who is only a couple of months old, we had a blast.  Joseph and Jack were instant best friends and ran and played with each other the entire time we were there, aside from the occasional fighting over the same toys of course! 

One of Joseph’s favorite rides at Disneyland was It’s a Small World.  We went on it twice, and each time he was blown away at all of the colors and the little people moving around.  I forgot how long of a ride it actually is!  He didn’t really care for the Pirates of the Carribean ride, but we managed to go on it twice anyway and he fell asleep on the Haunted Mansion.  We even ran into Peter Pan!  All in all we had a great trip and ended our day with the fireworks, which was awesome!!!
