Disneyland!

About a month and a half ago my parents called me and asked if I would be willing to come down to California to stay with Steven and Stephanie while they drove Baba (my grandma) to Arizona to live with my Uncle and Aunt there. I of course could not pass up the opportunity to leave ghetto Ogden to come to sunny Anaheim. Originally just Michael and I were going to come out, but we decided that Jonathan needed a vacation from Autozone. So the three of us drove out together on Wednesday night and were able to go to Stephanie's Cross Country Finals on Thursday.

We had no intention of going to Disneyland because we figured Michael was a little too young to really enjoy anything there, but my dad and mom thought otherwise. I guess Paul loved Disneyland even at that age...so my dad called Bruce and we were signed in on Friday. It's amazing that even after growing up in "Disneyheim" going to Disneyland is still a pretty exciting thing. And much to my surprise, Michael had a blast!



He thought the Monorail was pretty neat and wanted to look out the window the entire time...



He loved the Carousel...



and Buzz Lightyear with all the cool noises...



But the darkness in Peter Pan freaked him out. Because of that we decided it best not to take him on Mr. Toads or Snow White because they are rather dark and scary at parts too.



He was mesmerized on It's a Small World. (They've added quite a bit since the last time I went on it...the music of course is still the same)







We stayed for a few hours and then went home so Michael could take a nap. We went back in the afternoon and met up with Claire and Derek and then around 8 we went home to put Michael to bed. Jonathan and I went back for the last few hours by ourselves and made the mistake of trying to ride Space Mountain...We spent an hour and a half in that ridiculous line and unfortunately only got to ride 2 rides because of that! It was nice to be able to be together just the two of us though. :) Jonathan drove back to Utah yesterday...and I miss him already. Michael and I will fly back on Monday.

Yeah for Disneyland!
