We spent half of last week in Disneyland! woot! We love that place, too much sometimes….we had an awesome family reunion with my family and I think everyone had a blast! Even I did, hauling around my 33 week belly in 90+ degree weather and 100 million percent humidity. (or so it seemed)
The girls of course loved their favorite rides…Small World, the Teacups, Dumbo, the carousels…Bug’s Land…ok that’s about it. Still we had fun doing those every. single. day.
I think Sadie had the most fun loving on her two cousins-she wouldn’t stop kissing or hugging them or holding their hands. She is so excited for the new baby to come!

So….to switch gears, and tones….
The day after we got back, (Monday) someone (we think a couple of teenage punks) tried to rob our home that morning while we were gone grocery shopping….we actually interrupted them when I tried to get back in the house (they had closed the top latch from the inside) and they ran off through the back over the fence. I shoved the girls back in the car and we drove down the street to call the cops, who came quickly and were so calm and helpful. Luckily they didn’t hurt us or get away with much, although they had our bags packed with my jewelry, our tablet, and Rory’s gaming stuff. (jokes on them-most of my jewelry is from Forever 21! bwahaha) They completely trashed our master bedroom which was the most disturbing part. A stranger going through your personal belongings has got to be one of the creepiest feelings ever.
Since then we’ve beefed up locks around the house, are researching alarm systems, etc…and generally freaking out whenever I get back home from somewhere. (flashbacks anyone?) We were definitely protected and looked out for, and I’m so grateful that things turned out the way they did, though I would never have thought this would happen to us! Belief that the world is mostly good: shaken. We are SO grateful they didn’t come one day earlier.
