We love Disneyland

Braden has now been to Disneyland six times since the end of March. Overkill? Not at all!! The first time we went with Aunt Bibian and Uncle AJ since they got us tickets for Braden's birthday. A couple weeks later we finally got our annual passes! We have been having so much fun going to both Disneyland and California Adventure! Braden loves it and is such a trooper, especially when we drag him on ride after ride without a nap and sometimes past his bedtime. He's such a good baby.

Braden liked his first time on the teacups except when Matt began to spin it too fast! Matt wanted to see how far he could push it before Braden started freaking out . . . Men . . .

This was Braden's first time on a carousel! We found out from AJ that this horse is named Jingles and was actually chosen by Walt Disney's daughter. Amazing!

Braden loved staring at his reflection in this book in front of the Snow White ride.

Sweet Uncle AJ and Aunt Bibian joined us in the afternoon. Braden loved Pooh Bear but was a little scared of Tigger. I think it was the bouncing that did it. Or perhaps the blinding orange.

My mom got an annual pass, too! She, Braden, and I generally go together once a week and Braden and I try to also go with Matt once a week. It's such a burden but someone's got to do it! ;) It's so much fun to spend so much time with family.

Braden actually tried to start walking for the first time at California Adventure! We were waiting in line for the ladybug ride in "A Bug's Land." It's like the teacups. It turned out to be the ladybug ride o' doom! Our ladybug was spinning out of control and we couldn't stop it or slow it down and the backpack, camera bag, and baby were flying. Matt and I were in hysterics we were laughing so hard but my mom began to look a little green.

We went inside the newly redone Sleeping Beauty diorama extravaganza in the castle. It's really cool! Sleeping Beauty is one of Matt's and my absolute favorite Disney movies.

On Thursday we went and dressed Braden as Eeyore. He was so adorable! We really wanted to get a picture of him with Eeyore but by the time we got to Eeyore's hang out, Disney cast members were stealing him for a parade. Bummer!

So we got this picture . . .

And this picture . . .

We really tried!

Anyway, if anybody else has passes or plans for going to Disneyland or California Adventure let us know! We're always looking for an excuse to go.
