Disneyland 2010

I've been in such a funk lately and so I'm really behind in my blogging. We were able to go to Disneyland for the Williams Family Vacation the first week of March. It was so much fun and we all had a great time. The weather was perfect. It was springtime there. Beautiful flowers and green grass. I can't wait for our spring to show up!

Cooper was a wimp when it came to the characters and some of the rides. He would not go near any of the characters and there were just a handful of rides that he would go on. He refused to go on Peter Pan but I knew he would like it and so I forced him into that line and he was not happy with me...but in the end he loved it. This picture above is him on the Ladybug ride in Bug's Land and it was one of his favorites. My mom can go on spinny rides without getting sick so she was usually his partner on this ride.

We booked our trip through Costco and so as a bonus we got to go to a character breakfast. I thought this was so much fun and definitely something I would want to do again. We ate at Goofy's Kitchen and there were about 5 characters walking around. Cooper was very nervous the whole time but we kept him in the corner and no one tried to talk to him so he survived. The food was so funny because they had everything from scrambled eggs and waffles to chicken fingers and hot dogs. It was quite the breakfast buffet!

This was on the last day (we were there for 5) and he finally decided he would do it. He saw Woody and said he wanted to take a picture with him. So we took off after Woody to get our only picture with Cooper and a character. He looks pretty nervous but he was sure proud of himself and wanted me to show everyone the picture.

We had a blast! Jacks was tall enough this time to go on some of the adult rides like Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain and Soarin'. He felt so big and said they were some of his favorite rides. It was fun to take him on the "fast" rides. I never counted exactly but I'm sure we went on Small World atleast 10 times. It was one of Cooper's favorites!
