Since we got annual passes this year, Disneyland photos will likely make up a large part of my blog posts through next February! I broke this trip into two parts, because I was determined to use my Lensbaby for a lot of it, so those photos are in this post.
Emily’s kitty helped us pack before we left…
I am not much of a food photographer, but to celebrate both our 17th anniversary and Emily’s birthday, we had dinner one night at the amazing Napa Rose at the hotel, and this was one of the best fish dishes I’ve ever had, so I had to give it a shot. And I am not a huge fish eater, so that is saying a lot!
She’s growing up so fast—sniff, sniff…
I just love how beautiful the gardens are at Disneyland!
And I adore the almost iridescent quality of Cinderella’s castle, especially when the light is so pretty…
I know this is technically a terrible shot, but I love it just the same… All three of us were laughing so hard, and I couldn’t keep still enough to lock focus. So it’s perfectly imperfect, to me!
The World of Color—absolutely spectacular!
This was the first (and I am certain it will not be the last) time she beat me at Toy Story Mania, so I promised her I’d post it!
This time we visited the Animation Academy (in California Adventure) for the first time, where they teach you to draw Disney characters. It was FUN! Tom and Emily are of course much better at drawing than I am…
I hope she will always stay so focused on her driving!
A common sight…
From our balcony just after World of Color:
Just a snapshot, but still I love it—see how they are holding hands?
The second time, I attempted it too:
And finally, dinner at Big Bubba’s Bad Barbecue on the way home!
We already can’t wait for the next trip!
