My mom was down visiting and we decided to go visit…where else? Disneyland.
My mom bought the boys bubble guns. Aram wouldn’t put his down the entire day. Samuel preferred to be in the center of the bubbles, rather than be the bubble-maker.
I have a few friends recently who have told me that they don’t want to brave Disneyland with their kids because it is a disaster waiting to happen. I don’t blame them. After being there twice this week I saw bigger meltdowns than Fukushima and Chernobyl, combined.
I doesn’t have to be that way!
I’m spilling some of my secrets.
And here is my list of in-park food that isn’t horrible:
Bengal Barbecue in Adventureland
Royal Street Veranda in New Orleans Square (Clam Chowder and Gumbo, only)
Sit-down: Cafe Orleans
And that concludes my list!
Great day at Disneyland, yesterday!
I like sometimes going with just the boys.
First thing was first,we got right down to business- Going on that highly anticipated Little Mermaid ride. The boys even wore their crab shirts for the event.
It was a ZOO there! I am assuming summer has started for some kids.
We decided to go on Splash Mountain, this was Aram and Samuel’s first time. They said it is their favorite ride. I stuffed socks in Aram’s shoes to make him tall enough to get on. #MOMOFTHEYEAR
We didn’t want to hit traffic so we had to kill time. I put their jammies on and we went to Napa Rose for dinner. Those boys run that place.
After dinner we went and got ice cream and watched this guitar player/singer in Downtown Disney. Samuel said the guy was “his favorite.”
We finally made it home and we were discovered like this (please excuse the half-unpacked room and the cheesy leopard throw):
I almost decided not to post this because it seems a little redundant at this point. However, I have to pay homage to my home-away-from-home: Disneyland!
Reasons I love Disneyland:
1. It is the happiest place on earth
2. I got cast as Snow White, Aurora, and Belle face characters at Disneyland (so they don’t think I’m ugly!)- ask me about the audition (the guy totally predicted my pregnancy with AT!)- I am pretty bummed out and still slightly bitter that I am not currently working there for minimum wage around a bunch of germy kids.
3. The Lost Bar
4. Bengal BBQ
5. Club 33
6. The Baby Center!
7. Where else can you take a ride in a horse-drawn anything and never see poop- EVER?
8. Basically every magical ride is worth mentioning, but I’ll just cover all my basis with #8
9. Disney Dream Suite
10. Grand Californian Hotel- NAPA ROSE
And that is just the tip of the iceberg, my friend.
On Sunday Jenny and I decided we needed to got to Disneyland.
We packed up Aram (minus a stroller- those things are pointless there) and off we went!
We didn’t go on many rides, but the trip was still extremely fun!
We decided to have dinner at Napa Rose. We ordered a sizzling Beach Rock and drinks while AT ran around like a mad man.
We ended our day with coffee and ice cream and hit the road!
We’ll be back next week!
Well, yesterday was my 24th 21st birthday! It was so much fun!
We woke up and went to church, went back home and met up with Brian’s parents, ate at the Ethiopian restaurant in Anaheim (where we had freshly roasted coffee I wish I got pictures of!), and went to Disneyland!
We ended the day with margaritas at Tortilla Jo’s, and a truly scary version of goofy thanks to the balloon man.
