Happiest Place on Earth

*This posted may be a little overloaded with photos. But my last few photos have been sans photos, so I am making up for that.
A couple weekends ago we went to Disneyland. My good friend and college roommate was in town with her whole family spending a long weekend at Disneyland. So if we wanted to see her we HAD to go to Disneyland. Darn! :)We went to Disneyland when Ethan was four months old. I know, I know, who takes a four month old to Disneyland. I was dying to go to Disneyland after I had him. The year I was pregnant we had plans with my family to go during Christmas time. When I was put on bedrest that trip was cancelled but I vowed to go and soon as I had him. So we all went and he hung out in the sling the whole time we had fun, but he had no idea what gloriousness he was missing out on (can you tell I love Disneyland?). So this was Ethan's first trip being old enough to take it all in. He had so much fun with so much to look at.
It was insanely crowded so we did not do everything, but we did a lot. We took him on BuzzLight Year ride where he got to use a little toy gun to shoot the targets. Pretty sure daddy helped him get a score that beat mommy. We took him on the submarine ride also. He went back and forth between Chris lap and window and mine. He loved looking at all the "fishes." He that was too cool.
We are big fans of food when it come to Disneyland and there are a few things we HAVE to get before we leave. The giant Turkey leg is one of Chris's must have foods. I am a huge fan of the churro.
We all went on the Winnie the Pooh ride.
Ethan thought Jungle Cruise was pretty cool as well.
We were bummed that there were not many characters out. We did not see our first character (only character) until after dark and it was Pluto. Ethan did not enjoy him. As I walked towards him and was about 4 feet away, he started whining and trying to climb over my shoulder to get away. We tried to tell him it was just a giant dog, but he was not buying any of it. So as you see in the pictures I was able to get that close but E was making weird little sounds under his breath and staring down Pluto the whole time. Oh well.
Brown and E bonding while waiting to see Santa.
We saw Santa also. Again E was not digging it and would not sit on his lap, so we got a family photo with Santa this year.
This is the castle all light up at night so beautiful. It was such a nice, fun day seeing good friends and running around an amusement park.

Aww Brown.....I love her. I wish I would have been a fly on the walls of Disneyland to see Ethan's reactions. Looks like you all had a blast. I love you!!

Not sure how I missed this one when it was first posted. Love that you still call her Brown. Looks like you and the family had a great time. What a special memory!
