Last week we went to Disneyland for 3 days. It was so much fun. David and I just love Disneyland we would go there whether we had kids or not. The kids as you can imagine, loved every minute of it. Reid went on all the rides he was tall enough for, but his favorite rides were Pirates of the Carribean and the Haunted Mansion. Clara was afraid of a lot of the rides, but she loved the kiddie rides as long as they weren't dark and loud. Her favorite ride is Small World, but it was closed so her favorite ride this trip was probably Dumbo. She loves to see the characters, but she is scared of the princesses. She said "I like the princesses as long as they don't talk to me."

Alvin is 6 and a half months now. He loved being in the bjorn all day. He was so good for being dragged around all day. He had a couple of fussy times, but for the most part he was really good.

We went with all the Hazar's, and my mom tagged along as well. We loved having her there, because she gets a wheel chair because she has arthritis, so we got on most rides without waiting in line. I think my mom went on more rides than anyone else, because everyone wanted to take her with them so they didn't have to wait. She has never felt so popular.

This is Reid and Clara on the Storybook ride. Clara was having fun until we said "Look Clara we are going inside the whale's mouth." and then she lost it for a minute because she thought we were really going to be eaten up.

Some funny things Reid said while on the rides were... After space mountain was over he said "Did I not even make a peep mommy?" While going up the huge hill preparing to go down the huge hill on splash mountain he said "I should have never went on this ride." He also kept saying "Am I the bravest kid ever mommy?"
Some funny things Clara kept saying were "Let's rock and roll." "I have an idea." and "Don't I look darling?" We bought Clara this tinkerbell hat(she loves tinkerbell) the first day and it became the worst thing we ever did. She loved it, but it was never on right. About every other hour she was screaming because it wasn't feeling right. Gee, I wonder where she got that from? (those of you who know of my childhood will know.)
Here we are in front of my favorite bakery Pooh's Corner. They have the best cookies and rice crispie treats. My mother-in-law treated me to my first round of treats(Thanks Candace) and Then I couldn't leave the last day without some more to take home, so David and I went back the last night by ourselves while my mom stayed with the kids at the hotel. We had so much fun. We also were able to hit a couple of rides. Tower of Terror and Soarin over California.
David and I hate waisting anytime at Disneyland. We once got in trouble for running to the rides.(Like you do when you run at a waterpark) We like to try to do as many rides as possible so we are often running from ride to ride. Once while David was waiting for Reid to get off a ride I ran as fast as I could pushing my mom in the wheel chair dodging people, from one side of California Adventure to the other side to go on the Tower of Terror(my favorite ride) so we could be done faster. I am such a dork. My mom was dying, she likes it though, because I think I inherited the speediness from her. I'm sure we looked pretty funny to the people we were dodging.

This is Reid and Clara after the first day at Disneyland. Hyper as ever. And this is Alvin after the first day at Disneyland. All tuckered out.

The whole Hazar Family. There are 8 grandkids.
Reid and Clara making there own pizza for lunch at the Storyteller Cafe. Our favorite place to eat at disneyland.

Clara and my mom got to play a washboard for a streetband. You will see that she was more concerned with how the washboard was fitting than actually playing it.

The boy grandkids.
The girl grandkids.

That looks like so much fun! I love that you "got in trouble" for running at Disneyland-- are there running police there?
Glad you had a great time!

What's up with the Wuehler Family? said...

Very cute pictures! Reid, Clara and Alvin are so adorable and I loved seeing them and all of you! I love the video of your mom and Clara with the washboard. I'm surprised you didn't post a picture of our stylish friend dancing (or at least trying to dance) to the music. :) That was hilarious!
