Doing Our Part

This year Disneyland is doing a promotion called "Give A Day, Get a Disney Day." In return for a day of service, you recieve a free one day one park admission ticket to one of the Disney parks. I was so excited to get my kids involved and we signed up for 2 activities. The first one was planting trees and creek restoration. We had planned on taking all of the kids and getting our hands dirty, but we had a rainy weekend so we decided to cancel. The second one we signed up for was making blankets for Project Linus. We made five no sew fleece blankets. It was alot of work but a ton of fun. Everyone did their part and the kids learned alot about how to cut straight lines and tieing knots. What a great way to spend a rainy afternoon with our family!
