Last Wednesday, we took Kyle on his very first trip to Disneyland. Now if you are like my husband, who would be happy if he never visited again, you are probably saying who cares, right about now. But, if you are like me or any of my friends, this is a monumental event! Disneyland is a big part of our lives and almost like a passage of rights. When you are in my family, the first thing you get when you turn 3, is a Disneyland pass. We started taking Gracie when she was just 10 months old and she loves it there. I don't know what it is, but I can be in a horrific mood and walk into the place and just feel happy. Well, maybe not on a super busy day but for most of the time, yes.

So we loaded the kids into the car, along with the gazillion items that we needed for Kyle, including the double stroller and off we went. I figured it wouldn't be too crowded since Memorial Day was that previous Monday but as usual, I was wrong. The place was packed, more than I have seen it in a while but we did manage to get on a few rides that weren't crowded and Kyle did really well, better than my hubby who hates, did I mention hates crowds. We even got to visit the famous mouse who Kyle wasn't sure what to do with but he did manage to touch Mickey's nose which in my book is a success.

Our first family portrait with Mickey. Not sure why Mickey is wearing winter apparel but hey, whatever!

Who the heck is this mouse mom?

If you look at the roller coaster, second from front, you can spot Jerry and Gracie

The happiest place on earth!
