This is my last post on the Hirst Burst. Apparently, I exceeded my photo upload quota, and rather than deal with it, I just started a new blog. If you are interested in reading, head on over!
Hope to see you there!

Ugh!! I cannot figure out how to get my pictures posted in the right order. I am so not good at this blogging. Does anyone else have that problem, or am I just not computer savvy? Oh well, so these pics are all out of order.
Last week we took the boys to Disneyland, and had a blast. We decided to be brave and make the six hour drive instead of flying. And it actually turned out great! We left in the evening, stopped to have dinner and feed Hudson once, and then drove the rest of the way. Hudson did not cry at all. Not once! He is an angel baby. It was his bedtime, so after we stopped for dinner he slept the rest of the way. Jacob did pretty well too--I brought a cookie sheet for him to play with his cars, and Kevin put "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Choo Choo Express" on his iPad, and Jacob was in heaven. He watched it three times in a row, and begged for another. And speaking of Kevin, he is amazing. He drove the entire way there and the entire way home. He knows I don't like driving at night, so he did it all (or maybe he is just afraid of my driving and didn't want me behind the wheel! Either way, I'll take it). He is the best.
Hudson was good the entire time, and Jacob was good too. Although he had a couple of tantrums, but we were expecting that, because he is two. Each day we went back to the hotel to take a nap, and I think that helped a ton. Definitely doing that again. Here are tons of pics from the trip:

Before we went to Disneyland, Jacob did a bunch of chores around the house and earned some spending money. He earned about 75 cents. When we got to the store at Disneyland, he saw this cool train and wouldn't part with it. It cost more than 75 cents of course, but we pretended he paid for it all. I figure, he still young enough to not know how much things actually cost.
I was showing Hudson a Mickey stuffed toy, and he laughed for the first time. It melted our hearts so we were suckers and bought it for him:)
|Such a happy boy! He already loves Disneyland.|
|Jacob's favorite ride, the Casey Jr. Circus train|
|He also loved the teacups|

I love Disneyland. I want to go back already.
