Melissa wanted to go to Disneyland one last time before our passes expired (and we maybe take a break before renewing them this time. We're thinking about holding out until fall or maybe even later). After all our rainy weather last week, it was nice to be outside. It was perfect weather: low 60's and sunny! It was a beautiful day. That means not cool enough for sweatshirts and not warm enough to sweat and melt and have to put up our hair up in clips. A new experience for us!
Not only was the weather perfect, there was no crowd at all. We were actually able to have our picture taken in front of the giant floral Mickey at the entrance. . .
. . . and in front of the castle! Even though we were all blinded by the bright sun, it was too good of a photo op to pass up! Notice how cute Melissa looks in every pictureMelissa took both the boys on the rockets, but it was a little tricky getting Dylan to follow directions and scoot up . . . .
. . . . . so Melissa could get her long legs in the jet and then strap them all in.
They did it! It was amazing that there were no lines. While they went on the Buzz ride I fed Austin his bottle. We only waited 10 minutes for the Peter Pan ride which I got to ride on with the boys and Melissa went with Austin. We ate lunch in Fantasyland. It was nice to eat outside where there were tons of tables. Melissa and the boys walked right on to the Carousel before we headed over to California Adventure for the Monster's Inc rideAustin was such a good baby, he even took a nap for over an hour and a half in the stroller. Such a sweet boys
Just as we noticed the closed sign on the Monster's Inc ride, they opened it back up so Melissa and the boys could walk right on it! Too cool.
Just as they were coming off the ride (I waited with sleeping Austin) I noticed Mr. Incredible and signaled to them to hurry for the photo op
His pal Frozone was there too
And Peter Pan! He was so cute with the boys. We have had such good luck with "nice" characters that make it extra special for the kids.
Then just as we were leaving we spotted Goofy! The boys were so excited to see all their favorite characters from their favorite movies.
We couldn't have asked for a better day. Luke noticed the "L" in the CALIFORNIA sign. He must have a great preschool teacher!
And of course Dylan wanted a turn!
Such sweet brother! We walked right onto the tram to the parking lot, too. On our way out we even scored the front row where you don't have to fold up the stroller!
Dylan was out before we even left the parking garage! Did I say it was a perfect day???
