a trip to Disneyland and a ride on Splash Mountain

This cute little girl turned 2 a few days ago

so we went to Disneyland to celebrate. 

Well actually we went to Disneyland because Aaron's dad was visiting from Florida and he was able to get us in for free.
Yay for Disneyland! 
And yay for free! 

Could they be any cuter. 

Madelyn was so excited to be at Disneyland! 
She was so cute and excited to go on all the rides.
She was not so excited about all the adult sized Disney characters (that weren't human). 
I don't blame her. 

Family picture success. 
Everyone present and not crying. 

A little midday nap in the stroller. 

We had a great day meeting the princesses,

going on rides, and even bumping into some friends of ours
but the highlight of our trip was definitely taking the big kids on Splash Mountain for the first time. 
They had been begging to go on it all day. 

so we went and it was awesome. 

If they had a video tape from our log ride I would have bought it.
Even at the crazy expensive Disney prices. 
It was hilarious. 
Luckily we got this picture. 
The kids faces pretty much sums it up. 

And this was our after picture. 
We were all soaking wet. 
I think Aaron and I will be laughing about it for years to come. 
The kids, not so much. 

So thankful for a fun day at Disneyland 

and lots of wonderful and funny family memories.
