Disneyland - Fall Break '11

We had such a great Fall Break! It was hard to get back to normal last week - I wish we were still on vacation!

California was WARM when we were there which wasn't what I was hoping for. I was so excited to get to celebrate fall & the hot temps didn't get the fall feelings  going. Oh well! 

We went to California Adventure first on Sunday morning. We were some of the first people in line but we still had to wait like 45 minutes for Toy Story Mania.

Addy & I ready to run to TSM. 

We spent the day just kinda poking around & went back to the hotel that afternoon so we could relax. We went back to hit the park & it was so much fun to see the park at night.

I loved this big Mickey head at night. He was so cute!

Monday morning, we woke up early & headed over to Goofy's Kitchen to have breakfast with him & his friends. 

I love this picture of Addy with Sleeping Beauty. She loves Aurora!

Drew was smitten with Snow White!

Especially after she gave him a kiss!

Monday afternoon, we stopped to listen to a little jazz band that was playing on Main Street. 
The kiddos LOVE to dance & they had a ball getting to shake it on Main Street. Little did we know that we were actually watching a show that involved some of their favorite characters! Addison was asked to particpate & she was thrilled!

She was asked to be in a "drum off" with Donald Duck. Donald went first & he was ok. 

Next it was Addy's turn & she so serious! She looked like she wanted to throw up - sweet, baby girl was so nervous! She did awesome & when they had everyone clap for who they thought they should win, the crowd went nuts for Addison! She beat Donald Duck & was named "The Best Drummer in Disneyland!" That made her BEAM!

Right after Addy finished, Mickey & Minnie came out to dance a bit too.

 It was so much fun to watch! It was so random that we just stopped to watch the band play & it unfolded into Addison getting to be part of the show. That is exactly why I love Disneyland - you never know when the next magical moment will just happen!

We went into Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln & Drew racked out. It was nice to get out of the heat & Addison loved getting to watch Mr. Lincoln. When we came out, there was Mickey decked out in his Halloween costume!

Tuesday was our last day in the park. We had to get a picture with the Mickey pumpkin head, of course!

Since Brother was sleeping when we met Mickey the day before, we headed back to Toon Town so he could meet the Mouse!

Yay! "Meee Mouse!" is what Drew calls his favorite Disney dude!

When we came out of Mickey's house, we hit up the Go Coaster which was Drew's first official roller coaster! This was Addison's first roller coaster 4 years ago as well! It was so fun to get to go on it as a whole family!

I just had to add this - Addison is tall enough to go on Space Mountain & she usually LOVES it but it was a little scary for Halloween. Can you even see her face? No, because it it buried into me. She closed her eyes the entire time & as soon as it was done,  she asked if we could go again. Silly girl!

After Space Mountain, we hit up Carnation Cafe to have some lunch. 

We were hot & tired of fighting the crowds so we impulsively decided to pack up & head down to San Diego! After lunch, we headed back to the hotel to pack up & head south!

I can't wait to take our (future) kids to Disney some day. I totally want to surprise them last minute like all the commercials too.
