Our spring break is typically a week later than most LA schools. So we thought it'd be a good idea to take the kids to Disneyland during our spring break since most people will be back in school and it would not be too crowded. Plus, Ahgoo just celebrated her birthday with the Grandparents so it'd be awesome to take Grandma to Disney with us for an extended birthday celebration. We were all gearing up for all the fun when Mr. BAW suddenly realized that he had not checked on our block out dates (we have the lowest annual passes with the most block out dates.) Well, sadly, turns out that our spring break was a block out week!! UGH! Darn Disney, you are too cunning! Thankfully, Ahgoo was not too broken hearted, we would just have to go another time without Grandma. But, we did make it up to her by taking her to ride the giant ferris weel at the Irvine Spectrum
. Every time we go shopping at that center, she asks to go on the giant ferris weel and we'd tell her no because we go to Disneyland all the time and they have better rides there. Then, at Disney, I would always refuse to go on their giant ferris weel because the line takes FOREVER to move. So this time, when we bought tickets for her, Buzz, and Mr. BAW to ride the giant ferris weel at Irvine Spectrum, her eyes just about bugged out of her head! She was more happy about this ride than any other ones at Disneyland! Ha, it was worth the $5 per person!
We spent our entier spring break week down in San Juan Capistrano with Mr. BAW's aunt. She kindly hosted our entire family and Grandma for the whole week and even took us to see the San Juan Mission. I will show you pictures of the mission in another post. It was really nice to be able to get away from our construction for a little while but not have the stress of travelling too far. In addition to doing some shopping, we also took the kids bike riding. Even thought Ahgoo had already learned how to balance on her bike right before her birthday at the end of March, it wasn't until spring break that she started to really enjoy riding and was able to stop the bike on her own without anyone helping her. And once she got that, off she went!! She LOVES to ride her bike now and the two kids are always asking to go bike riding. The bike Ahgoo is riding on was Buzz's Christmas present from the Grandparents from when he was four. Maybe she'll put a new bike on her Christmas list this year.

Last Bits of February Still Left
I know, it's getting ridiculous that it's April and I'm still showing pictures from February! Not that I don't have things to share from March or even April, but our trip to Sedona was so awesome that I just have to show you the rest of the pictures. This last set of Sedona pictures are from Tlaquepaque Arts and Craft Village
. This little arts village is so charming and lovely that we visited three times on our trip! It feels like a tiny enclosed Tuscan village. They have the cutest little toy store. The only thing I wish they had more of are restaurants inside the village. Enjoy the very last bit of our February, I promise!
