Daddy's Birthday at Disneyland!

I had to be in Southern California for work the Monday following Thanksgiving, so we decided to make a road-trip out of it! We drove down to Orange County on Thanksgiving morning (4:30am departure time!) and Timothy was SO excited to see his cousins, Jack and Minsh (Vince), and Aunt Cwish-tee (Christie) and Unco Coo (Uncle Drew). For some reason, I decided it would be a good idea to join Christie for Black Friday shopping the next day, so again, I was up before 5am (Christie got up before 3am to go get a "ticket" for one of the hot items she wanted to buy! Yikes!). Anyway, it wasn't so bad, and we both got some good deals, but I don't know that I'll be doing that again...

Anyway, we spent a leisurely time hanging out with everyone that weekend (Timothy even stayed with a babysitter for the first time ever!) and on Sunday, which was Billy's birthday, we went to Disneyland! Timothy had an amazing time! So without further ado, here are some photos for your viewing enjoyment.

Self-portrait at the main entrance.

Pirates of the Caribbean - in retrospect, maybe not the best choice for our first ride! He sat on my lap with his head on my chest for 95% of it - he only looked up a couple of times when we pointed out some puppies and pigs.

The Jungle Cruise was a much bigger hit.

In front of Sleeping Beauty's castle, which was so beautifully lit up at night, but our pictures all came out blurry.

Timothy pretty much insisted on walking most of the day. Luckily he likes holding our hands.

Napping while Daddy, Jake and Mary went on Space Mountain.

Cutie waiting for the Holiday on Main Street parade - which was AWESOME!

Billy with his cousins Mary and Jake, who shares Billy's birthday (only he's 11 years younger!). Jake and Mary are two of Timothy's namesake's siblings.

Timothy loved the Playhouse Disney stage show - Handy Manny was featured!

On a couple of different rides in A Bug's Life at California Adventure.

In a chair in the Beast's library.

"Nice to meet you, Mick!" Mickey was at a bit of a loss when Timothy wanted to shake his hand! :)

I wasn't able to get a picture of Timothy facing me, because he wouldn't take his eyes off of Mickey!

Yup, definitely the happiest place on Earth! Can't wait to go back! Yay!
