We've been trying to go to Disneyland with my mom once a year until she retires this summer. This trip was hot, but the fun Halloween decorations were up.
They're especially cute in Cars Land.
I bought matching shirts and treats at Target to bring along.
Perry loves driving.
Brave soul with Jonah behind the wheel. They think it's funny to let go of the steering wheel and let the car go berserk.
We met Kylo Ren
and gave Goofy high fives.
Perry was still too short for a few rides, so we switched off. It takes longer, but the other boys get to go twice in a row, so they like it.
We swapped on Cars Racers, which was Scott's favorite ride.
Perry mostly ate while we waited.
Scott loved Splash Mountain this time. Jonah has loved it since his first time, but Scott had to warm up to it.
Some Coco decorations for dia de los muertos.
Now that the boys are a little older and since they never go to sleep quickly in the hotel anyway, we decided to stay for the nighttime show. Fantasmic was amazing and they loved it, so it was worth the whining while walking back tired.
We found a Perry-sized Zurg.
Perry met Mickey
He went right in for a hug and kissed his nose.
He loves Mickey so much.
(Jonah was on Guardians of the Galaxy with John)
The late night caught up to him.
Jonah ran on sugar and excitement.
Pumpkin Goofy. Perry can recognize the characters now and has seen some of the movies, so it's more engaging for him.
Perry petted this lady's tail in line. I had him apologize, but when you wear a fuzzy tail, what do you expect?
I took the boys on Thunder Mountain Railroad while John took Perry on the boat and they met Tiana.
Napping by the water in the shade with two fans running on him. We were all jealous.
The boys had a lollipop
while we tried this amazing churro sundae.
Our first time on teacups together.
Jonah and Scott were Jedi trained, but Perry was willing to join Darth Vader on the dark side.
Lightning McQueen in his costume.
Brave little Jonah on his favorite ride.
I took them on the Grizzly Bear run for the first time since it was so hot. I got drenched, they got sprinkled. It was really uncomfortable having wet jean shorts on, but kept me cool the rest of the day. Then John took them and the boys got their turn getting all wet, which they loved.
I was sick again this trip and it was really hot, but Disneyland makes everything more fun. It's probably our last family trip for a while, so we really soaked it in and had a great time.
