Thanks so much to Mom and Dad, the whole Sales family (Mom, Dad, their four children and spouses, and all eight grandchildren!) flew to Hong Kong, checked in at Disney's Hollywood Hotel, and just spent the next three days being happy!
Now, we have like a billion photos but I'm grabbing the ones that Vince posted on Facebook. So if you're friends with Vince, you've seen these. If you aren't friends with him, don't request him to add you haha. Also, I'm only posting photos of my boys since they aren't in school yet. Vito and Iñigo had such a great time with their cousins so too bad because they have such fun pics together! But I now have a policy of not posting photos of school-age kids on my blog (unless the kids have moms who are bloggers posting their kids' photos publicly).
Okay, here we go!
(Check out this video of my boys waiting at Hollywood Hotel's lobby!)
Okay! Rooms are ready! On our way up, Vito saw Mickey Mouse. He was sooo starstruck! He actually held his fist in his mouth to keep himself from shouting for joy! He also met Goofy. Okay, Mickey being the STAR, you'd need a ticket to get your photo with him. Goofy, being, well, Goofy, he just hangs out in some sunny corner and you can just sidle up to him and get your pic taken. Like so!
So we all settle in, rest a little, change into new clothes, then we all took the shuttle to Disneyland. We have really awesome photos of Vito telling Mickey Mouse to get down the fountain (here's a sample pic) because he didn't think it was safe haha. I'll dig them up later. In fact, I have no photos now of our first day at Disneyland! I'll put them in my next newsletter so I hope you subscribe now!
Anyway, we rode a lot of rides. Vito loved Autopia, both boys loved Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Iñigo loved Cinderella Carousel so much that he started shrieking when the ride was done and I had to prise his little chubby fingers from the post. Vito called Sleeping Beauty Castle, "Sofia the First Castle!" and then he promptly fell asleep in our stroller while we waited for the Halloween Parade. When it finally lumbered by, Iñigo didn't seem impressed haha. Then Vince and I went back to the hotel with the kids, while the rest of the family stayed till the fireworks show.
We had a snack with Mom and Dad after this exhilarating ride, Iñigo woke up and wanted a toy so Lola gladly obliged him a Woody plushie. Thanks, Mom!
Then we rode Mystic Manor, which Vito did not like one bit. It wasn't really scary; I think he just didn't like the part when the cockroaches streamed out and then you get sprinkled with water. Iñigo didn't have an opinion haha.
After that, we all had lunch together. We did a bit of sightseeing then it was Vito's turn to nap in the stroller. While he napped, we shopped. Check out my new favorite watch!
From A, to Zo. I think they're looking at the birds or planes here.
(If you follow me on Instagram, you'd have seen these pics and videos of our trip as they happened so follow me!)
At the airport. We had lunch at Pop-eye's. The boys ate so much chicken! Why do my kids eat so much???
Then Vince and I shopped. Vince doesn't like exchanging what's left of our HK dollars because lugi so he really makes it ubos. We bought candy and chocolates.
Darling Iñigo watching TV at the Children's Lounge.
Soon after this photo was taken, we flew home, which is, in my opinion, still the happiest place on earth!
