Disneyland - a month late.

Last month when we were at the beach - we also spent 3 days in Disneyland. It's my favorite place. EVER. I went there a lot growing up...that's probably why it's so great to me. Kyle asked me if he should grab us a map...SERIOUSLY? I DO NOT need a map. I know all the secret places of Disneyland...walkways...stroller passes...my brother Michael even told me that going to Disneyland was like I was running a business. I told him with the amount of money it cost for my whole family to get in - I HAD to treat it like a business! Seriously...if you want a good day at Disneyland...invite me along. We are now proud owners of season passes. Thanks to my mom's old CA ID. We had a blast! I wore my running watch there for 1 whole day in the park. In 11 hours, we walked 10.5 miles. CRAZY, huh? It was great. All of my kids are at ages they enjoy it. I take my running stroller in, and it's a great place for the girls to nap while we go along! I had the best time because I got to see Fantasmic again. I haven't seen that in probably 5 years...well, probably more than that. None of my kids had seen it before. We usually go to Disneyland in the off-season, or during the week when Fantasmic isn't playing. I LOVED every second of it. It instantly put a huge grin on my face, and it was all I could do to not dance along! On with the pictures, and less babbling...I LOVE this picture. Just check out the look on Haley's face. Waiting in line for over an hour was worth it - just for this picture!
This is my all time favorite Disneyland picture. What could be more fun - than riding by yourself in the front seat of the Alice in Wonderland ride with Minnie Ears? Nothing, I tell you, nothing!
While waiting in line to see Minnie - Kristin decided she would be Minnie for Halloween! Start sewing, Grammy! This picture is so typical of the boys. Goofy - through and through. I would never buy one of these hats - but they were fun to try on!
How about this one of the hat my dad tried on? Here is Maria, Kristin and Haley...at this point we were ALMOST at the front of the "Meet 3 princesses" line. Everyone (but Haley) was so excited to see Pluto...this has got to be a classic photo... Haley had to go potty seconds before we got to see Mickey. The lighting was horrible in this teeny tiny room...but - here's the great mouse! On our way out of the park - I wanted a picture of my kids in front of the castle...seriously, why do I even try?
