DisneyLand highlights and other noteable mentions

We spent three full days at DisneyLand and took the parks by storm.

:: I ate pavement before I even stepped foot inside the park and doctored my knees and hands with Band-Aids and Neosporin religiously throughout our stay. Now I have another three-and-a-half-inch cosmic bruise.


:: We waited in lots of lines. (Isn't that a so-cute picture of Estee and Jeremy?)


:: But it was so worth it, because we got to ride lots of rides like Indiana Jones, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Grizzly Rapids.


:: We rode roller coasters like Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, and California Screamin'.


:: We even had a couple of character run-ins, like Jeremy's with Brer Bear. (Um, terrifying. This encounter had us all in fits of laughter.)


:: We also ate a lot. Like, a lot. I'm talking deep-fried Monte Cristos here. Heavens. And don't forget the turkey legs.


:: Oh yeah, and the ice cream for dinner.


:: After riding Star Tours eight times (I joined him for only three times), Josh customized his own light saber.


:: My top-three favorite rides are the Hollywood Tower of Terror (I was surprised too), Thunder Mountain, and Grizzly Rapids.

:: I really like this picture of Josh and Nicole.


:: Can I just say how impressed I am with the overall cleanliness of DisneyLand? Because I am. I wasn't even grossed out in the bathrooms.

:: We came home yesterday with sore feet and smelly clothes, and we were oh so glad that we got to spend this time with our family in the best amusement park ever.


:: Really, I'm not a big amusement park kind of girl, but DisneyLand proves the exception. So if you're like me when it comes to lines and rides and crowds (meaning you almost always avoid them), give Disney parks a shot, because they're awesome. I mean, I even liked the roller coaster that threw me upside down. I know. I had a blast, readers. So. much. fun.

:: You should check out Estee's recap of the trip. And don't forget to watch the video. Seriously, watch the video.

Nice try, Sarah.

I feel totally out of sink with your life!!

What the? I was so involved in the horror of "Ben-dom" as your mother has deemed it, that I let your birthday come and go...I hate that!

I'll catch up, but maybe not for another week or so...forgive me!

Things are crazy here, looks like you had a great time! I didn't even know you cut your hair! What the?! Again...ugh.

We need to get the family compound started right away. The end.

I've been to Disneyland, but only for one day at a time. And now, I don't know if I could handle any of the rides! Since having children, I can't stomach anything anymore.

Looks like you guys had tons of fun.

I totally biffed it in Disney World, I have the scar on my knee too! There must be something with Disney. I'm glad the trip was a delight!
