Happiest place on earth

In a word: Disneyland!

Memorial day we decided to go to Disneyland to get our season passes. We knew that it would either be a great day or a horrible day. It would either be really crowded or empty. It would either be really hot or it would be a great mild spring day. The kids would either be really great, or grouchy because of missed naps. I'm happy to say that they LOVED Disneyland.

Audrey and Lydia were playing at the water park in Bug land @ California Adventure Park.

They were great the entire day. It was a day of the great mild weather, few people in the parks, and great behavior on the kids part. We made our way through the lines quickly, got to ride a ton of rides, some Myles really liked(Dumbo, the train, merry go round...), others he cried through(Pinoccio, Matterhorn). The girls got to ride several things too. They could ride on most things in Fantasy land. We even got to have our picture taken with Mickey Mouse in Toon Town.
It was a great day! We started the day thinking we would leave the park by 3 pm. but we didn't leave the park till 8:30 pm. The kids just kept going, and going, and going. They loved all of it. It's such a difference from a year ago when we took the kids. Myles can now successfully wait in lines, he LOVES the rides and even stays close by most of the time. He walks and rides through the park with ease. He loves getting to ride things twice, thanks to the great idea of the "Parent Swap"( One parent waits in line with a kid, then the other parent waits with the other children. Parent "A" rides the ride with the child then when the ride is over they get off and the other parent gets right on). It's really great! The kid gets to ride twice for the wait of one line!

We are now proud owners of Season Disneyland passes. Anyone want to come to So Cal and go?!

Ah yeah, I'd love to go.
I'll have to ask DRu to do a few more hours in the car.
When you've done like 100 hours what's another 10 right?
What a great day.
