Universal Studios!

To celebrate Sean's golden birthday (22 on the 22nd!), we went to Universal Studios Hollywood! We did the studio tour, Jurassic Park, Mummy, & Simpson's rides. Oh and I also dragged my mom through the haunted house. She kept trying to hide in corners and I literally had to pull her through so more scary people wouldn't get us!
It was Ada's first night in a hotel and she did great. Slept through the night in her pack-n-play and didn't make a peep. Those pack-n-plays are wonderful! We stuck it right in between the two beds and she was a happy camper.
Here she is relaxing in the hotel room :)
It was a beautiful, warm day and we loved the water spritzer things while you stand in line. So refreshing :)
We had Ada in the stroller with the shades over her, she stayed pretty cool. She had so much fun people watching and smiling. The only time she cried was on the studio tour when the earthquake hits because people were screaming. Once that was over she was happy again!
I love the things you learn when bringing a baby somewhere for the first time. Did you know there is such a thing as child swap passes? Here's how it works: someone stays with the baby while everyone else goes on the ride. Once they get off the ride, you switch places and get a pass to the front of the line with one other person! GENIUS & AWESOME.
This worked out well for us...I was able to feed and change Ada then Auntie Linds (who was in town on her spring break) got some quality time in.
Also wonderful: the all-you-can-eat passes! We may or may not have cheated the system a bit, but we ate a ton of good food :) Burgers, pizza, Panda Express, oh my. A nursing momma is a HUNGRY momma!

Haha Oh I miss those nursings days when you could consume whatever you wanted and know you will burn it right off without even lifting a finger!

That looks like so much fun! We haven't hit up Universal, but the Baby Swap at Disneyland is the greatest thing ever. I've heard of people saying that taking small ones to those places is awful. They obviously didn't know of Baby Swapping.

They do child swap passes at Disneyland too! We still haven't taken Ethan, but John is really excited about getting to go on rides twice in a row =)
