A few of the memories
Here's a small sampling of our trip to Disneyland. (And a small background first.)
When I was 0-7ish my dad worked as an accountant for Disney so we'd get family passes and we'd go a lot. I loved it! And I think because we were still little when my dad decided to get a new job the magic is still magical to us as opposed to some folks whom I hear grew up in that area and went so often it's no fun anymore.
Any who for our first annual my-side-of-the-family reunion my parents took us to Disneyland.
Ok back to our trip. Obviously most of the pictures are self explanatory. A few highlights included:
~Lunch with the princesses. All the kids got a big kick out of that.
~Day 2 we bought autograph books. I didnt think they'd care, but they did. So we ended up scoping out the characters. At last most of us did. My oldest got shy all of a sudden.
~Turns out my 6 y/o is a roller coaster nut. She rode on Matterhorn, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Gadgets Go Coaster.
~My parents kindly took the kids back to the hotel one evening so hubby and I could stay and play in the park. It was a blast! (We went there on our honeymoon.)
~I love seeing my kids love every part of the trip. The plane ride, the bus ride to the parks, staying at the hotel. It's so fun watching them enjoy all the little things.
~My son was so excited about every thing he saw. It was awesome watching him discover so many things.
~My 3 y/o was loving all of the magic!
~My 6 y/o lost her 5th tooth on the shuttle from the airport to the hotel.
~We had a fab lunch in the Blue Bayou where I even tried a tasty new dish. (mmm I'm hungry)
~We got to see the debut show of The Princess and The Pea. I think we're all looking forward to seeing how good the movie is.
