The Past 8 Years in Disneyland History

I have wanted to put our Disneyland photos into a bit of chronological order for some time now, and what better time than today - 8 years to the day that my amazing husband got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!  That was just the start of a wonderful journey we have been on together.  I remember hopping on the Disneyland railroad later that evening, hand in hand with my man!  I was on cloud nine and had so many hopes and dreams for our future!  We were just 18 years old and still had a lot to learn about each other and life in general!  We were so sooo young but also soooo in love that it felt like we would literally die if we had to live without each other.  We had only been together for 7 months and I know that many had to be skeptical of our early and fierce relationship, but we knew it was going to last forever! 

After what felt like an eternal year and a half engagement, we were finally husband and wife and journeyed back to Disneyland for our honeymoon!

After about 9 months of marriage and Peter's completion of his junior year in college, we went across the country and visited Disney World for the very first time!  Man oh man, do we look like babies in this picture!

We spent our 2nd wedding anniversary back in Disneyland, complete with an unforgettable Disneyland Earthquake!

The following year we were back at our happy place and were hard at work on our paper chase to become parents!

And about a year later, here we were with our precious little 6 month old Malachi in our arms and another little blessing 20 weeks along in the tummy! 

We returned to Disneyland (without the boys) for our 5th wedding anniversary and our lil surprise sweetheart  Miss Sabrina tagged along ;)  I was all of 5 weeks pregnant and MISERABLY sick!!!  It was a rough (but good) trip!

And here we are this past year - keeping it real :)  Malachi was 2 1/2, Eli was 1 1/2 and Sabrina was 5 months!

Every one of these pictures is so precious to me.  I can look at each one and a flood of memories just instantly comes back to me.  Some people just don't get the Disney magic, but it sure is real for our family!  It is our happy place for sure.  So many very special memories!
