Disneyland or Bust 2010

Okay, now this is getting a bit embarrassing.  Yes, it's another Disneyland post - the result of yet another Disneyland trip.  And we loved every minute of it!

Initially, Amelia was a little sad that her Moss friends stayed back in Utah for this trip.
But all sadness disappeared once Tinkerbell and friends appeared in Pixie Hollow.

The Park was so quiet that cast members had kiddie games to play on Main Street.  Amelia totally charmed Phillip by knowing how to spell Mickey Mouse (thanks mostly to her faithful watching of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse).  He made us all Honorary Citizens for they day.  Amelia wore her button proudly!

Each trip Amelia seems to choose a new "favorite" ride.  The Casey Jr. Circus Train was the lucky winner this trip.  She knows every word to the song and loves to wave at the people riding in the Storybook Land Canal Boats below.

Mid-week the fun kicked into high gear with the addition of the McKinlays (Lisa, Katie, Michael, and Lizzie) and the Okerlunds (Megan, Annnie, David, and Matthew).  I can't even put into words just how fun it was to have them there.

Riding Gadget's Go Coaster.  I promise that in the photo before this one everyone's hands were up in the air even Ameila's!

David's personal mission was to get Katie and Annie onto any ride that would make them scream or drench them with water.  The girls loved his teasing and happily jumped on Grizzly River Run, Splash Mountain, and Tower of Terror (okay, just Annie on this one).

David broke all personal and family records on Buzz Lightyear's Astro Blasters with a score of 1,200,00.  I suspect that it has something to do with how much time he spends submerged in the Toy Story world at work day-in and day-out.  He says that he's just that good.

Of course, no Disney trip would be complete these days without a good chunk of time spent playing on the Hoot and Holler slides in the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

We are ready to go back! 1 1/2 days with the Kennedy clan just doesn't cut it. Thanks for all the fun!
