First installment of Disneyland!

Sorry, there are so many pictures and I know the grandparents and aunts and uncles love pics so I could not decide. When I was uploading the pictures we had 400 from two days, so I really narrowed it down alot. My camera battery died after about 2 hours in the park, I wanted to cry. So my dad took pictures and I have not gotten them from him yet, so my 400 is only 2 hours one day and then the next day when my mom dropped and broke my dads camera and he could not take pictures, good thing we brought our charger so we at least had one camera at all times.

We had a lot of fun, the trip there took about 6:30 hours with a potty trained two year old who had to pee every 20 minutes. There was a big snow storm a few days before and the road we had to take was stand still traffic for a bit, it took us an hour and half to go 15 miles, talk about going crazy. And then my dad missed the exit, I called him and told him and he said there would be another one so we kept driving, after about 20 minutes and no new exit I called him up and said "UH I think we need to turn around." So that was about another hour add on to the trip. The drive home was about 4 and a half, that more like it. Season passes are so cheap too and since its so close I think when Noah gets home we will buy season passes. It was so much fun to watch Landon, he was just in awe, a major sensory overload, he was just looking all around with him mouth wide open and his eyes huge. It was the best thing ever to watch his face. He loved to meet all the characters and give them all kisses. He was star struck, it was precious. It rained the whole first day (hard in the morning misty after lunch) and was freezing. We stayed in the hotel till the rain let up a bit and then went in the afternoon. The lines we almost non existent, it was really nice. The next day was A LOT busier and the lines we ridiculous. It was so nice to see everything lit up for christmas. All the decorations and lights. A lot of the rides like ITS A SMALL WORLD, were completely redone for christmas, so it was a whole no ride experience. After we put the worn out boys to bed Noah and I went back to the park and rode two big kid rides. We went during the fireworks so we had to run to get to the rides and get on them while everyone was watching fireworks so we did not have to wait. I have been telling Noah about the Indiana Jones ride for years so we had to go on that one. We went to wait in line but the ride was shut down so we went to a new ride. The line for the Matterhorn was wrapped around the mountain earlier in the day (about a 2-3 hr wait) we got on in 10 minutes. We went back to the Indiana Jones ride and waited a bit till it open and we walked right on we did not even have to wait. SCORE!!!!

The boys were so good, they did not fuss (Braddoc) or throw fits (Landon) they did so awesome! It was a wonderful trip (aside from the rain and the fact that I was sick and Braddoc got sick). I am so blessed to have two such amazing boys, it was so much fun to be in the "happiest place on earth" with my wonderful husband and darling boys.
Landon LOVES Minnie (he is giving her a kiss). When he got to pick out a doll he picked Minnie and Daisy first (he so needs a little sister) and they were his babies, he burped them and changed them and gave them kisses. Before the trip was over he had all of the character dolls (yeah spoiled, but he loves them so much I could not help myself).




Braddoc all nice and cozy in daddys jacket.



I was so darn sick and you can really tell in this picture. :O)


I had no voice so I really had to strain to talk, probably why I looked so silly in this picture. Landon loved Minnies hour, he was so amazed at all the stuff.



Jail break!!!!




Loving the ITS A SMALL WORLD ride!!!! I dont think I ever saw him so in awe and so mesmerized and happy.







He got this goofy from a friend of ours for Christmas. He had it the whole time on the way and the whole time at the park. He LOVES his goofy. He was being so silly with it in the car. "My baby." It kept him nice and entertained.

Thanks boys for being so good in the car and at the park, it was so much fun.
(more pictures to come)

Looks like a fun time! Landon looks so happy! Braddoc is so cute all in Daddy's jacket. Ok so I totally cracked up at Noah's face while Landon is driving the car ride. Glad the boys were so good for you especially since you didn't feel well.
