Man I feel so behind in blogging that I don't even know where to start. Hmmmm. I haven't really even been blogging about what has been going on for a while.
I will start by saying that Cortney started his NEW JOB today. Yes you read that right. After a lot of thought and prayer Cortney has decided it might not be the best time to be in the golf course industry. It feels overwhelming for him to leave everything he has learned and loved these past five years but...there just aren't jobs out there. He is starting a job working for the Company that Joey works for. We are both excited for him to get started (and of course for the opportunity) and for us to be out of survival mode.
To be totally honest...I am going to miss him desperately. The boys and I tried really hard all day to keep our spirits up. Oliver fought tears all day. It is hard for him to understand it, why Cortney HAS to work. He really is my best friend and it has been the best experience EVER having him around. Even though it was stressful for him to be out of work...I enjoyed every moment of it...honestly.
Because we knew Cortney was starting his NEW JOB this week (and because I was finally feeling better), last Saturday we decided to take a last minute trip to Disneyland. We left early the next morning.
I love disneyland. Hmmmm....it makes me so happy. Cortney not so much but he "likes" it and had a really fun time.
The first night we got there (sunday night) Rob said a three minute (seriously I timed it) prayer all about disneyland. He kept praying that Mickey Mouse wouldn't be like Chuck E. Cheese because "chuck e cheese is scary".
The first ride we went on was Mr. Toad's wild ride. There was no line and I thought we should take advantage of that. However...that ride is kinda scary. I mean you hit a train and then you end up in Hell...what the???
when we were in the ride, I kept trying to tell Rob how awesome the ride was...he thought it was good...but wouldn't ride it again. hahaa. Oliver LOVED it.
Then we went on to something a little less scary...Small world. Both boys loved it and we probably rode it like 7 times.
Rob was dead set on riding on the tea cups. There was no way I was going to ride on that because while I was feeling pretty good, I wasn't feeling that good. He loved it and wanted to ride it again and again.
California Adventure. Which Cortney really liked. We took the kids on Tower of Terror. Big mistake. They hated it. I felt like the worst parent. Oliver really truely wanted the "I survived the tower of terror" shirt.
Our hotel we got super cheap and it was right across the street. We walked back and forth no problem. It was awesome. You can see the tower of terror there in the backround.
The kids had no interest in meeting any characters. They loved seeing them but didn't want to talk to them. When we went to Mickey's house Rob went right up to Mickey and gave him five. I couldn't believe it. He thought meeting him was AWESOME. Although he still looks pretty scared in the picture.
Rob wouldn't get out of the stroller for the picture. Too busy with Cotton candy.
They boys and I.
Ummm Clam chowder in a sourdough bowl. My favorite thing. I love this picture and how we are all devouring it.
Oliver playing at Tarzan's tree house. (yikes we climbed this like 6 times)
And here we are up in the tree house.
Rob putting his hands up in the air on the "roller coaster" and by roller coaster I mean Winnie the pooh ride.
yeah...its pretty crazy.
The classic disney picture.
This is a truely happy Rob. He hardly ever really smiles in pictures. But here he is on the Bugs Life caterpillar ride. One of his favorite rides. He loved when the watermelon sprays juice on you.
The boys enjoying a turkey leg. Oliver told me that is the best kind of meat in the world.
Happy Oliver in line.
The kids got pretty freaked out on the bugs life 3-d movie. I thought it was awesome.
Oliver in the O
Because I got Oli in the O, I wanted Rob in the R but he wasn't having it. He wanted up in the hole in the R.
That is all from Disney....I will post more tomorrow.
