Disneyland.... our other Home

Disneyland what can I say its our FAVORITE place to go to (besides my Mom's, love you mom).

Neither Mick or I got to go when we where kids, and we both grew up a 5 hour car ride away. So when we had our kids we decided that if we could, we would take our kids at least once every couple of years depending on how old they where and if we could afford it. Well we went for the first time in June of 2008 and have been 3x's in the past 2 years.

We fell in love with Disneyland!

We get to do everything as a family, The kids are tall enough to go on everything so no one has to sit out, there are 4 of us so everyone has a buddy, Sky and Justin LOVE thrill rids, and the Disney magic feeling is just amazing. We love going because it feels like a real escape from the world. Even though we only get about 5 hours sleep each night the whole time we are there, and we are walking around for hours everyday, it is our "Happiest place on earth" to be.

Non of us mind the car ride ether. Mick and I bring books to read, and lots of different music to listen too. the kids each get their own "car bag". In their bag I put coloring books, crayons, work sheets, books to read or look at, different snacks, they get to bring their DS's to play some video games, and some toys to play with. They also bring their pillows and blankets cause all kids know if you take a nap in the car it makes the trip seem shorter (hehe).

This year with our amazing blessing of a new job and no rent, we decide to splurge, and spoil our selves a little. We just bought Annual Passports to Disneyland! I cant tell you how excited I am. We leave for our first trip on the 25th of this month, then we are planing on going back in October for Halloween. After that its pretty much when ever the mood hits hehe. I really enjoy Disneyland and all the fun family memories we are creating every time we go.

So jealous! I love that place, but I haven't been in a while.
Plus, I strongly dislike the drive. Ugh.
