California trip: part 2 Disneyland

For Christmas this year we decided to go really light on the presents and splurge on a trip to Disneyland. It has been over five years since we have been...Claire was an infant and Jake has never been. It really is one of the funnest places in the world! We had such a fabulous day as a family and there is nothing better than seeing your kids THAT excited!

This has to be one of my favorite pictures of the trip! Jake was beyond excited at the parade to see all of the characters. He could hardly believe it!
So excited!!!

This was the highlight by far of Claire's trip. She was cracking me was like she was meeting a celebrity. She got Tinker Bell's autograph and couldn't have been more thrilled!
Both of my boys fell asleep in the Tiki Room after a long fun filled day!

Christmas is a fabulous time of year to go to Disneyland. The weather was perfect and you would not believe all of the Christmas decorations. This is Cinderella's castle all lit up.

Jake talked about driving this car for DAYS!

Brady came with us and it was so nice having another adult. This is where Jake spent most of the day! Kent and I even got to go on some rides together. Ü

Abbie in front of the Small World ride. It was incredible to see the amount of lights they had on that thing for was magical!

I laughed so hard at this picture. For some reason Kent's head popping up above Mickey's cracks me up!

Claire worried so much about getting this picture for her friend Lizzie. Apparently they had previously talked and Claire promised she would get a picture of Cinderella's castle for her. Here you go Lizzy...

Thunder Mountain. During the ride and...

after the ride.

I was a little surprised at how much Jake loved going up to all the characters. He wanted to give them all huge hugs!
