Swimming and a Sweet Vacation Home!

When we went on our Disneyland vacation in June (you can see my Disneyland recap here) my in-laws rented an AMAZING Disney themed vacation home.

It had a princess bedroom for the girls…

A Superhero bedroom for the boys…

And a fun Mickey Mouse pool right in the backyard!

Mickey Mouse Swimming Pool

Klara got to take her first ever swim in that sweet Mickey Mouse pool! She did not like it at all at first. I think the water being a little cold didn’t help the situation, but after awhile she started warming up to it.

As long as mommy held her or was close by when she was in her floaty she did just fine.

The hubs and I loved our bedroom. It had a nice king sized bed and our own in suite bathroom. I’ve only been once, but so far I am convinced that if you’re taking a large group a vacation rental home in Anaheim is the way to go when you visit Disneyland!

Again, I am not an expert, I have only had one daughter so far, but if you have any questions about taking baby on vacation, or baby’s first time swimming, I would be happy to try to help! Just let me know!
