Happy Valentines Day from the Juarez Family!

The day before Valentines Day, Rylie had her party at school, so she got to wear her Valentines shirt.

We love these 2 kids to pieces! :)

We also got to celebrate Brandon's 31st birthday while we were in California. Rylie was pretty excited for the cake. :)

Bath time at Mimi's house!

Grayson's 1st Trip to Disneyland

This is a big deal in our family! :) We decided very last minute to go to California the weekend of Brandon's birthday, and even more last minute decided that a day at Disneyland was long overdue. It was the perfect time of year to go-amazing weather and no crowds.

Grayson's very first ride was actually "Ariel's Undersea Adventure" (again, when you have an older sister, princesses are just a part of your life!), and he was pretty mesmerized for the whole thing. However, his absolute favorite thing the entire day was the carousel (which was also one of Rylie's when she was little and still is on her top 5...seriously, can't we get these at a mall?! We are a Disneyland for goodness sakes!).

Our "selfie". :)

Rylie was so excited to meet the princesses!

So while Rylie and Cinderella were chatting, it came up that Ariel is Rylie's favorite princess. So after Cinderella took a picture with her, she grabbed her by the hand, completely left her post, and walked Rylie to the next room. She squatted down next to her until the next princess was done with some other little girls and then introduced Rylie to Ariel! This is just one of the many reasons that we love Disneyland...they do little things that go above and beyond and practically made Rylie's entire day.

Grayson playing peek-a-boo with Minnie Mouse.

I love this mailbox. One of my favorite pictures every from Disneyland takes place with this mailbox...'s of Rylie and her Mimi when she was Grayson's age!

Rylie and Mimi still have such a special bond and love being at Disneyland together. :)

How can you not just love this little guy! He did so great the entire day and even took a pretty great nap right in the middle of everything.

This is still the favorite ride!
