We are so lucky to be able to visit Disneyland this year. Through Jansen's therapy we got tickets for $35 each. (Reg. $76). The best part... we forgot our tickets! We had to drive back and take a 5 hour detour. It was murder. BUT, instead of going to Jake's parents that night, we called Disney and got a hotel right across the street. So arrived @ 2 a.m. we slept in a little and didn't have to fight traffic in the morning. What a blessing, right!

The kids knew what Disney was this year, and Jansen started yelling "Oh Toodles" as soon as she saw the sign. (from Mickey Mouse Club House)
I loved bringing our kids there! It was so fun to see how excited they were to see every single thing! I had a million pictures of Jansen pointing to things.
And yes, we did get to wear our matching shirts again.
Dumbo, Jansen's favorite ride.
Jake's parent's were great sports and came along to help us out. There is NO WAY we could have done it with out them. I don't know what I was thinking. Thanks for coming.
The Tiki room
Reesa L_O_V_E_D the princesses. So magical. AND Jansen actually ran to each princess and hugged them.
Are you wondering what Mitchell did? ha ha, I wish he was this easy.
I took a zillion pictures of Reesa but this is almost the only one with a smile. Even Mitchell liked Small world.
The castle.
The fireworks were one of the best parts. Jansen yelled "wow" after every single one. And when there was a boom he yelled"ahh!" We were all laughing. The lady standing next to me told me Jansen made every penny we spent worth it. Then she added he made her's worth it too.

P.S. If you're going anytime soon, it was HOT. People were in shorts and tank tops. I had to borrow sunscreen from some random lady to protect Mitchell. It's only JANUARY!


  1. Oh my goodness, the 5 hour detour!! I can so relate! I don't really want to admit how many times we've been about to cross the border to the US and realized we forgot our passports and had to turn around! But Disney...so worth it! Love the matching shirts and the magic for your kids. And the weather. The WEATHER! We need to come to Cali!
