Disneyland, rain or shine!

This last Monday we all went to Disneyland for a day of Disney goodness! Amy and Jason’s good friend let us in for free!! YAY! We had been planning on going on Monday for a while. Even when we found out that a big storm was coming in on Monday, we still decided to keep with our plan! Amy and I went out and bought ridiculous “emergency ponchos” that looked like garbage bags with hoods. They were so fugs. But we ALL wore them. Green for the boys, red for the girls in honor of Christmas. For some reason, I didn’t get a picture though!! 

All the kids had so much fun! My niece Avery, who is five, LOVED the roller coasters and would laugh hysterically throughout the whole ride. Because of this, I would call shotgun on riding with her as much as possible. Maisie had fun as well, but really did the typical Maisie thing and just took it all in (no smiles), probably trying to figure out how exactly they got the ride to function the way it did. I thought she would be a bit freaked out on Haunted Mansion or Pirates of the Caribbean, but nope. She loved it. 

I personally still love Space Mountain with a passion, think Pirates of the Caribbean is boring now, I no likey Bugs Land, and have a renewed love for Tower of Terror. Good times with the family.

Oh! So it was so crazy windy and rainy in the morning and we all got soaked, but then it dried out by afternoon and we had a rain free, sunny-ish day until we left! It was fabulous!

Here’s some pics from our day at Disney.

Amy and Avery being so cute

Seriously!? Look at the guys in the background!! They were so into this ride. Ridiculous!Seriously!?!? Look at the guys in the background!! They were so into this ride! Ridiculous!
Maisie's favorite part was probably seeing Mickey Mouse. She kept kissing him on the nose.

    How can you not like bugs life?? Was it the wiggly bugs under your butt? Did it give you an uncomfortable feeling? I love disneyland so much.

    Glad you got to enjoy Dland…even though it was raining. And just a side note… Curtis has the same face as Justin every time we ride Buzz Lightyear.
