Disneyland Part 1

This past Tuesday we took Babe to Disneyland for the 1st time. I decided to make this a 2 part post so I can fill you in 1st on how the day went and then part 2 will be the pictures. Ok, ready....let's begin.
So my husband sort of put together a "plan" of how our day should go since we were going to Disneyland and California adventure, and Babe is still too small to get on some of the rides (I think he "just" made the 35" mark for one of the rides).  We started in California adventure and at first Babe was being all shy and didn't even want to get out of his stroller. The 1st ride we went on was Toy Story Mania, Babe liked it but I think my husband and I enjoyed it more and got really into the competition of the game. Next stop was the nearest shop to get Babe his Mickey ears.....he was not having it! After that first ride he was anxious to get on another ride. So dad took him to another ride while I picked his ears and got them embroidered. We met up at Mickey's Fun Wheel and that's where the excitement began.

The look on my son's face as the wheel made it's full complete circle was priceless. He was so excited to be swaying back and forth, I even had to hold out my arm across his chest so he wouldn't fall off the seat. We were laughing the whole time and he couldn't wait to get on even more rides after that. On Luigi's Flying Tires you have to move your body in the direction you want the tire to go, my husband and I agree that we literally did the best flying around that tire track. Babe and I got on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree and at one point he came flying into my left side and at another point I went flying into his right side (poor Babe) he thought it was hilarious though, even when I said "oh my gosh, your right cheek is SO red" (from him banging into me). He laughed and said "yeah".

The whole first half of the day while in California adventure, he kept asking when we were going to the castle. So after our little picnic lunch we headed into Disneyland and straight towards the castle. But as we approached it my HUSBAND refused to stop and take Babe out of the stroller to take a picture! WTH! He said we would "come back to it"....(don't get me started). He did pause "briefly" and I snapped a quick pic that I think sucks! Anyway, we literally zoomed through and past the castle and I was super disappointed because that was the moment Babe was looking forward to the entire day. (And just so you know, by the time we got back to the castle ...past 7:00pm, Babe was passed out. Sad Face)

Babe and I got to ride front row on Gadget's Go Coaster in Toon Town. As we slowly crept up to the top, we had our hands up high but when we actually got to the top I got so nervous that he was going to slip out, I tried to hold on to him as much as possible. We laughed the whole time, and he said he wanted to go again. I loved the rides that made him laugh and made him say "Whoa, that was awesome". I live to see him happy and having fun and just enjoying life. We spent 11 hours at the happiest place on earth and luckily it wasn't too busy so we actually got to enjoy a lot of the rides (none of classics though. Don't ask me how that happened).  I am so happy we got to take Babe at this age and can't wait to take him back when he is a little bit older and taller. I hope you will come back tomorrow to see all the pictures :)
Until then here is a little sneak peek
