This year our city has received a record snowfall – 6 1/2 feet already and no signs of stopping anytime soon. My little guy and I have ants in our pants while we wait for spring to arrive. We look forward to the days when we can walk to the park and play in the backyard. We really need to escape this winter cold for a while and I’m excited to say that we’re soon heading to The Happiest Place on Earth – Disneyland!
This is my husband and my little guy trying to hitch a ride to Disneyland and The OC. As you can see from all of the snow around, we’re ready for some sun, sand and Mickey Mouse ears!
When I first received the call from Disney to invite us on this trip, I was holding in my squeals of excitement! I called my husband at work to tell him the news but I was shaking with so much excitement that I almost couldn’t get the words out! I play a lot of practical jokes on him (only friendly ones!) so I think he thought I was kidding. Once he realized that it was not a joke and that we were really taking this amazing adventure together, he was super excited too!
I have been to Disneyland twice in the past (the first time when I was 12 and the second time when I was 21) so it has been a long time since I’ve been there. My husband and little guy have never been and I can’t wait to see the looks on both of their faces when we arrive!
My little guy is nuts for Disney! We’re always watching the Disney Junior channel and we’ve watched Toy Story 3 more times than I can count. He has also really gotten into Cars now – so much so that he’s learned how to open the DVD player and put in the Cars movie himself. Funny how they learn how to work those technical gadgets so quickly! I can just imagine the excitement he’ll have when we walk into Cars Land. Oh, there is so much to look forward to!
After a few fun-filled days in Disneyland, we’ll be traveling to Orange County for some more amazing adventures. We’ll be staying at a beautiful hotel that has earned a AAA Five Diamond status for the last 28 consecutive years. We’ll be indulging in delicious food, beautiful beaches, a whale watching tour and more! I can’t wait to share photos and stories with all of you!
