Description of Photo Description of Photo First off I didn't intend for this to be a photobomb post but it turned out that way anyway, Sor. (sidenote:: Sor is a short version of sorry I've been using since high school, I might use it again, just fyi)
Friday morning we woke up early. Jerry and I went to bed kinda early the night before because we knew we had a big day ahead of us. Friday morning was great, Jerry was finally home, and I got to take a shower in the morning completely uninterrupted. Actually that's a lie, Ardo still came looking for me, but Jerry was quick to entertain him and get him excited for Disneyland! Once we arrived at Disneyland, I started getting really excited. I haven't been to Disneyland in years. I'm really glad we waited to take Ardo. At 2 years old he was able to take in so much. He was yelling at the characters and telling them "hi" a thousand times. I notice if we're with him, he's fine, when he has to sit on there lap, that's a different story. I wasn't sure how long Ardo would want to stay in his stroller, but because we were in a crowded place he didn't mind it one bit. He seems to do that when he's in crowded places, which, I LOVE! It already freaks me out how friendly he is to strangers. He'll go up to them and start talking to them and he isn't afraid. So to have him in his stroller at Disneyland was awesome. We went on as many rides as we could, there aren't any photos of us on the rides because each ride we rode, as a family. And since just the three of us went, pictures were for after. As a blogger even when I was on my hiatus I still took pictures, that I can't stop, but I made a decision to take pictures for a bit and then not worry about snapping away, I wanted to soak in as much as I could while we were all together. Ardo's favorite ride was Winnie the Pooh. We went on twice, he loved Dumbo and It's a Small World, and of course Toontown, but there was something about Winnie the Pooh that captured his heart. The only "big ride" we got on was Pirates, I wasn't sure how he would take to it but he surprised me, he LOVED the drops at the beginning. LOVED THEM. Right after the two drops there's a short time when it's really dark and the Pirates are fighting, he wasn't too keen on the dark, then the villagers appear and he was intrigued again.

Description of Photo Mr. Toads Wild Ride was the second to our last ride, Pinocchio turned out to be our last. My friend Izzy was asking me about Mr. Toads and asking if Ardo was scared, I thought he might be too because when you think about it, Mr. Toads is kinda scary. It's dark and these things are just popping up at you and then of course the end. I replied to her with "oh you mean the part where you go to HELL"! I mean sheesh that part scares me a bit, but Ardo seemed to love it, wanting to get on again (if only time permitted).

Disneyland was a success!! Sometimes with toddlers you don't know, you get really excited about something and that's the day, they have an off day. Or the reaction they have doesn't match yours and suddenly what you thought would be fun, isn't. So when things pan out how I hope they would, I'm overjoyed. I will say, seeing Disneyland through the eyes of a two year old was the best feeling. His genuine excitement reminded me of when I was a kid and how every year when we were able to go, how happy I was, and how I hoped the day never ended. Second awesome thing, Ardo was DONE by 7:30pm. Thank goodness cause so were we. =) Description of Photo

  2. I have always wanted to go to Disneyland. I live in Florida, so, I've been to Disneyworld a gazillion times. It looks like your son had a blast (he is so cute, by-the-way). You have a beautiful family!
