The time had come to visit with happiest place on earth again. This was Amelia's first visit, well outside of the womb that is since the last we went to Disneyland I was pregnant with her. I think it was a bit over stimulating for her but she loved "Mickey Mouse's house" as she called it. It was very special when we got to meet Mickey on Saturday morning!
It was every one's first time visiting California Adventure and it was a blast! Santa was there as well as a lot of fun characters. Between Disneyland and CA Adventure's, I think we met just about every Disney character.....
Alex was really into the rides this time and even braved the Haunted House. He also rode his first roller coaster, the Matterhorn! He absolutely loved it and could have ridden it all day. He also really loved the Toy Story ride and Pirates of the Caribbean.
Amelia was really into the rides when she wasn't too cranky. CA Adventure has a cute area called Bug Land (after A Bug's Life) and had lots of kid rides. The bug bumper cards where very fun. The kids also loved Dumbo over at Disneyland.
We also went right after Disneyland had decorated for Christmas and got to see the Christmas parade which was beautiful. Just the thing to get us all in the Christmas spirit! The kids really loved seeing all the characters dressed up.
Before we left Disneyland on Sunday we stopped by Goofy's kitchen and had breakfast. It was so cute and Alex had a belated birthday celebration by the characters. Fun for all!
We are back to reality now but Alex is already asking when we can go back...! It was great making these memories as a family and I do look forward to another trip, but for now we can enjoy all the memories and photos from this trip!
