"Magical Kingdom of Disneyland"

We went to California for Mother's Day weekend, it was great! We spent Saturday at Disneyland and California Adventure. This was Dane's first trip to Disneyland, he loved the rides, but hated the lines and didn't understand why we would just stand there forever watching other people get on the rides, it made him furious.  Cooper was happy all day, he enjoyed every minute of it and kept telling us that he wanted to go to the Magical Kingdom of Disneyland every day! Cooper never calls it just "Disneyland" he always calls it the "Magical Kingdom of Disneyland."

Dane loved the Finding Nemo Submarine

Cooper waiting in line to ride The Matterhorn for the first time.

Dane was barely tall enough to ride The Matterhorn
He loved it!

This is Cooper's new pose for pictures, his face looks at the camera but not his eyes. Silly boy!

We love It's A Small World!

Dane really loved the Jungle Cruise!

Believe it or not Dane was posing in this picture and saying  "cheese"
he was begging me to take his picture and it took me a minute to realize it, so he was frustrated with me.

The day we were there was the World Premiere of the new Pirates of the Caribean movie. It was CRAZY! They had Mainstreet all roped off with a carpet for the movie stars to walk down and there were people camped out all day waiting to see the stars. There were news crews all over and a helicopter flying overhead all day long.  Disneyland closed at 5:00 for the premiere and we headed over to California Adventure for the rest of the evening, it was crazy crowded at California Adventure.

The "World of Color" show in California adventure was AMAZING! It was like the water show at the Bellagio on steroids. It was very, very cool!

Walking back to our car, we partied all day, our feet hurt, we were wiped out...
yep, it was a successful day at Disneyland.
