Disneyland & California Adventure

When we went on our California vacation last month, we spent 3 days discovering Disneyland and California Adventure.  There was so much that I remembered as a kid from Disneyland and so much that seemed new to me.  What got me was the detail.  There are so many amazing details involved that Disneyland just seems magical.  We went to Disney on Monday, California Adventure on Tuesday and then went back to Disneyland again on Friday.  Our first day there, Rowan was asleep after just a few hours in the park.  It was really hot while we were there and the heat made us all really tired.  I had a hard time knowing if I should bring my big camera into the park, so most everything that I got was captured via iphone.  I had a ton of pictures and instead of spending a million years editing them, I'm just going to bombard this post with them. :)

First ride of the day.  I *think* it was called Astro Blasters.

Who says 4 year olds can't drive?

I see you Chandler!

My mom celebrated her birthday while we were there.  We made her wear this pin that had a button on it that would sing.  It was awesome.

We created so many memories while we were there. Rowan loved the Buzz Lightyear ride and Star Tours. He couldn't stop talking about them. Chandler loved every ride that we went on.  It was such a fun family trip and I'm so glad that my parents and sister's family was able to go too.
