Happiest Place on Earth (Tied w/ In-n-Out Burger)

Pictures from our Disneyland trip - video to come tomorrow.

Matthew's flown a bunch of times, but this was the first time he really understood what an airplane is. This little toy from Burger King entertained him for about 3 seconds:

The first night, we got to go trick-or-treating in the California Adventure park:

Matthew scored a cowboy costume from his cousin Dylan. He didn't want to put the pants on at first, but then he loved them and just kept running around:

The whole park was decked out for Halloween:

Our first ride was a Monsters, Inc., ride - Matthew is a big fan:

Matthew got to see a few of his favorites in the parade:

By this point, Matthew had a big bag full of candy:

I think this was the latest Matthew had ever stayed up - it was nearly midnight when we went home. He was beat on the tram back to the parking garage:

Well-rested and read-to-go on Day 2:

In about 15 minutes, Matthew would be really scared by the 3D "Honey I Shrunk the Audience" movie (bad idea on our part):

Waiting in line for the Alice in Wonderland ride:

Back to the park that night after a nap:

Matthew's loved the Buzz Lightyear ride because he loves Toy Story and because he got to shoot at things, so we went on it twice and picked up a little gun for him, which we'll undoubtedly regret later:

Matthew liked the Pirates ride for the most part, although he didn't see the little drops coming and was a little scared:

I couldn't get a great picture of it, but the Haunted Mansion was all decked out (inside and out) for "Nightmare Before Christmas" - we had a good time on that ride:

Waiting in a long, long line for the Finding Nemo ride on day 3:

On our way out of Disneyland:

Meeting Handy Manny in California Adventure:

On our way out, we had a Micky Mouse sighting (although I think the outfit confused Matthew at first, because he insisted it was Minnie Mouse at first):

One last shot on the way out:

Sacked out at the airport:

Looks like it was a fun weekend! Isn't it awesome with all the Halloween decor? The Nightmare before Christmas ride is so cool!

We don't do the Honey, I shrunk the kids show anymore...we learned our lesson with Braden on that one.

I love that place!

That's where we were last year at this time! Disneyland never gets old for me! It was also very crowded last year on fall break weekend. I think they should limit the amount of people that can get in somehow.

Cute shirts, Karin! I never knew Disneyland around Halloween would be so fun! Sounds like a blast!
