Wordless{ish} DL 2012

At 4:35 this morning I realized that I never really recapped our Disneyland vacation in pictures or words (I think about some random, crazy stuff in the 10 minutes after my alarm goes off and before my feet actually touch the floor).  And while I’m not sure I have it in me right now to fully summarize the entirety of our trip (this is where you all breath a sigh of relief and thank me for sparing you a ridiculously wordy essay), I do think a picture-packed post is in order, along with a few highlights via my sloppy iPhone journaling screenshots.

As always, no pressure on you to follow along.

I made the decision early on to NOT take my DSLR and to just rely on my iPhone camera.  My reasoning was mainly for the sake of ease.  I didn’t want to be tied down to lugging that big thing around OR to worrying about leaving it in the stroller or whatever.  And you know?  Looking back I really do think it was the right choice for me.  Were there times that I wished that I could ensure a great shot with a no-fail camera?  Of course!  But more than anything, I was grateful to have my hands free (well, as free as they can be with 4 kids, 2 strollers, and 1 bag).  Anyhoo, here is just a picture sampling of our fun. At the bottom are the daily notes I kept on my phone, which totally does not take the place of journaling, but for this season in my life, it will have to do!

I'm totally just catching up on your blog. But I got completely lost at your first comment....4:35am, 10 minutes before you get out of bed....please, please, please tell me you do not wake up that early.

No wonder why you're so awesome and get so much stuff during the day! :-)
