Disneyland 2010

November 1 to 5, 2010 was our second trip to Disneyland. We had a really great time as a family...other than the almost 100 degree weather we were experiencing. We had dinner at Goofy's kitchen and met Pluto, Goofy, Chip, Dale, Snow White, Minnie, and the Fairy Godmother. It was our first time getting an autograph book for the kids and they had a great time getting signatures and posing with the characters.

The next day we spent the whole day in the Disneyland Park. Zach and Jenn had made blankets for a charity and got a free ticket into the park. We made the most of Disneyland and rode all of our favorite rides and met a TON of characters. Then when it got too hot and we got too hungry we returned to our hotel and played in the pool and used the water slide. It was our saving grace in the weather!

Since we had been to Disneyland and California Adventure a year ago we tried to just relax and enjoy this trip. We went on the rides we knew we liked, new rides that Lucy was finally tall enough to go on, watched parades and water shows, and took advantage of our hotel. We really had a nice trip.

On the last night the kids were hungry and Zach was tired, so the kids and Jenn went down to the PCH Grill in our hotel for a little bite to eat. Tyler was eating a roll and bit into something hard...and it was his tooth! The waitress was so nice and she gave Tyler an envelope with "My Tooth" written on it and had turned the O's into Mickey Ears. We put the envelope under Tyler's pillow and instead of the tooth fairy finding him...Tinkerbell did. She left a bouquet of balloons, a gift card to the store, some Tinkerbell pins, and some autographed pictures of Buzz, Woody, and the Disney gang. Tyler was so excited! It was one more magical thing to happen to us on our trip.

It would be nice to say that we can't wait to go back next year, but Zach has put a moratorium on Disney trips for a few years. The memories will make us smile for a lifetime!
