Where did that holiday go?

One minute we were all getting very excited about it and doing all the getting ready for holiday things - and then what seemed like a couple of minutes later we were back! Why do holidays always go by so quickly?

We had an absolutely fantastic time, although Disneyland was a lot busier than last year. Our school holidays seemed to be the same as all of the rest of Europe and the place was packed and the queues were much longer - which meant that there was more time for the darling children to argue and kick each other whilst they were waiting!!

We did the all the magical rides in Fantasy Land such as Peter Pan's Flight, It's a Small World, Alice's Curious Labyrinth, Snow White and Pinocchio. Our favourite ride by far was the brilliant Pirate's of the Caribbean, I think we must of gone on that about 7 times and each time we were lucky enough to be at the front of the boat! All that was missing was good old Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow!!

I would love to be able to show you lots of pictures, but no matter how hard I try I can't get more than one picture to appear on my blog at a time. I would like to be able to have a picture then some text and then another picture..... or to do one of those lovely photo collages that I keep seeing on other blogs. I must be missing something really simple so if anyone can enlighten me and let me have some very easy step by step instructions then perhaps I can have another go.

Disneyland Paris

Just in case you haven't noticed my Disneyland Countdown, we are flying off to Disneyland in Paris this weekend for a fun filled week of Disney delights.

I think that I have already mentioned this before, but we went last year and unfortunately a certain small boy managed to get chickenpox half way through our stay, and as you can imagine he wasn’t feeling his usual bouncy, happy self! Despite this we did have a good time, but felt we just HAD to go back and do it all again.

We have been getting into the Disney mood by watching some of the Disney DVD’s that match our favourite Disneyland rides - Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean and Peter Pan to name but a few.

This year we have also decided that we will spend a day in Paris doing all the touristy sightseeing things - such as going to the top of the Eiffel Tower, taking a trip on the river Seine and visiting Notre Dame. It seems a bit silly to go all the way to Paris and miss out on all of that!

I will be back shortly with some Disney stories and lots of pictures – that is if I can get more than one photo to appear on my blog at once – but that’s another story for another day!

I hope everyone has a very Happy Easter :O)
