What a fun trip... full of memories and laughter and watching two little kids come alive amidst the magic of Disney.
I would definitely place this trip in one of the top trips to Disneyland ever!!
Teresa Bowen invited me to help her take her kids (Simon and Adelen) to Disneyland. I use to be their Nanny and so the kids no me really well. They were so fun and kept fighting over who got to sit next to me on the ride... it made me smile.
The four of us in front of the castle!
Teresa and I don't have a lot of pictures together because we were busy taking care of the kids... Simon took this of us.
Addy and Simon on Finding Nemo ride... cute pictures - lame ride.
Addy sleeping in Plutos bed... she asked if Pluto would be angry if she laid down in his bed... I said of course not.
Addy loved the parade. She would SCREAM at ever character as they floated by until they waved at her. She loved the Beast.
Addy and I waiting for Simon and Teresa outside Indiana Jones. The kids did great on all the rides. Addy would ask 5 times before every ride if there was a monster or a evil queen on the ride. Those upset her too much, but it didn't matter if it was dark or fast or whatever... her favorite rides were Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain. She hated Snow White.
Simon would have ridden Autopia the entire day if it was up to him. He also like Indiana Jones, but hated Space Mountain and Soarin' over California (he thought his shoes would fall off and be gone forever).
The kids did get a little out of hand and while waiting for the Princesses, they were sent to time out. Mind you there is a line of over 50 people around us.
The Princesses... Addy LOVED meeting them and talked CONSTANTLY about it afterwards
Simon and his Autopia drivers license.
Excited for the parks!
Adelen learned an important lesson about running in Disneyland and climbing on things... she got an owey.
Tower of Terror... that's right, we went on it twice. I felt like those parents that take their kids to rated R movies at 11pm... but the kids LOVED it and when we got off we went right back on.
Waiting for the Parade again.
The Big Guy. Addy got a cell phone with Lipstick in it as a souvenir and spent all night talking on it with Mickey tell him about how she met him and how she loved Disneyland... it got annoying after a while, but she was so cute.
I was in charge of the map, although I rarely looked at it. Teresa let me make all the decisions about what to do next - which was nice.
Newport Beach before heading home.
Delicious crab legs at the Crab Cooker!
It was such a fun trip. When we booked our hotel and tickets, our package through getawaytoday.com came with an 8x8 scrapbook. As a thank you to Teresa for letting me tag along, I am gonna scrapbook the trip for her. It'll be so much fun.
