People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Disney Land: Part 1

The day after the reunion ended, Grandma and Grandpa Joy took us to Disneyland. They had been telling the girls that when daddy was all done with school they would take them. For about a year they have kept asking if daddy is all done with school yet. Well the big day finally came and they were so excited! Jason's brother's family came with us too. On Tuesday, after about 10 potty stops, we made it to our hotel, which was only 2 or 3 blocks from DL. We spent Wed.-Fri. at DL and came back on Saturday.

Sophie, Regan, and Janie

We met Pluto right off. They were star struck:)

Half the excitement for me was watching the girls excitement. Isn't that what makes Christmas fun too when your grown up? Sophie would especially get worked up. We stayed one night to watch the water show, Fantasma. Sophie was squealing the whole time. I LOVED it!!

The carousel was a favorite

Even big kids like the carousel

Me with Greg, Peyton, and Gavin

These three were inseparable. They loved small world so much!
The girls were so good the entire day.
Meeting Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore was so exciting too.

I waited for the girls while they got pictures taken with the Hundred Acre Wood gang. OK, someone caught me....I collapsed.

Sophie came back to tell me about meeting Tigger and Pooh.

I was pretty pooped by the afternoon. I collapsed back at the hotel and had braxton-hicks contractions the rest of the night. I had only been off the feeding tube for a week and felt pretty weak....still do as a matter of fact. The next two days I got a wheelchair and did much better.

Those girls snuggling with Pluto = Priceless!

I can't wait for another playdate with you, my friend! I really liked catching up with one another the other day. :) Love your guts and that cute tum tum.

My word! I don't know how you did all that in your condition, and with your humiliations :)
