Our Trip to Disneyland

Warning: this post contains LOTS of pictures. Hey, it's really not my fault. We just got back from Disneyland! It's hard to be selective!
Adam did an audit of a hotel in LA all of last week. Ty and I decided to fly out and visit, too, so that we could go to the happiest place on earth. Anyone who knows me knows that I am OBSESSED with Disneyland, so the opportunity was just too good to pass up!
We have not done Disneyland since Ty has been a part of our family. It was definitely different with a little person. There was no "combating" Disney this time around! Still, we had a blast. We spent most of our time on the small rides, but it was fun!
Our friends Kevin and Tami Rasmussen live in Southern California, not too far from Disneyland. Adam and Kevin did the accounting program together, and Tami and I went through the whole El Ed program together at BYU. They have a little boy who is just a few days younger than Ty. They met us at the park in the morning, and we were able to spend a couple of hours with them having fun and catching up!

We got to meet Buzz Lightyear!

Ty and me in line at Autopia. Ty loved driving the car. He kept saying, "Wow!" the whole time.

Riding the carousel

The Dumbo ride
We loved how Disneyland was decorated for Halloween!

One of Ty's favorite places to visit was ToonTown. They had all sorts of fun things to climb on and in. Ty was in heaven!

The very best moment of the whole day came when we went to Mickey's house to meet the mouse. Ty doesn't know many of the Disney characters, but he does know Mickey, thanks to the show Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney channel. As soon as Ty saw Mickey, he squirmed out of my arms and made a mad dash for him. He was laughing his head off and squealing. It just made my whole life!

We seriously had a blast in California! At the same time, we are glad to be home and back into our normal routine!

I bet that was so much fun. Savannah loves Disneyland and now that we are so close to Disneyworld we have a pass and plan to go often. It really is the happiest place on Earth isn't it.

Looks like fun! I LOVE the happiest place on earth. Watching the kiddos discover it really is a new but fulfilling sense of fun.

I like lots of pictures, these ones are cute. It makes me jealous. Micah and I wanted to go to Disneyland before we moved to Pitt, but I was SO nauseous when I was pregnant that I would have puked the whole day, like when we went to Hawaii. So maybe someday we will get there again!!! How long do you thin you will be living in Colorado? Love you Meggs!
