We went to Disneyland!
AND I brought my 35mm camera!!
We also saw baby ducks
We ate dole whip
And 10 different flavors of churros
We rode all the rides
And ate all the food
We congratulated ourselves on making it out of The Guardians of the Galaxy Ride alive
We made friends with people in line
We randomly saw my moms cousin on Main street
We did all things Disney, friends. And I brought a few photos to share, starting with the castle, OF COURSE.
Did you know there was a camera store in Toon Town? I sure didn’t because if I’m being honest, I’m almost always kickin it in Adventureland or Tomorrowland.
How can you not stop?
All the little details. <3 We loved them.
Our first glimpse of the castle. I was totally enchanted.
Dang right I stopped here for a pic! It’s required by all passing photographers.
The last time Kayden was here he was three and they painted a little Mickey on his cheek. So of course, now it’s a tradition.
Since he’s a post man…we had to.
I took this photo and thought “That’s gonna be good” and I was right. I love this photo.
On day two we had dinner at the Blue Bayou and went all out. It was worth it.
Ending on a storybook note… all the tiny details of this ride slay me. What about you? Any favorites you want to share in the comments? When was the last time you were there? Are you as in love with Disney as I am?

Hey. Do you mind if I tell you a story? One you might not have heard. All the elements in your body were forged many many millions of years ago in the heart of a faraway star that exploded and died. That explosion scattered those elements across the desolations of deep space. After so, so many millions of years, these elements came together to form new stars and new planets. And on and on it went. The elements came together and burst apart, forming shoes and ships and sealing wax and cabbages and kings. Until, eventually, they came together to make you. You are unique in the universe. There is only one of you. And there will never be another.
