Colton is obsessed with taking pictures with our tongues out. I usually have to compromise and take one sticking our tongues out before he will smile for one.
Side Note: The whole trip all I wanted was a picture of Colton with Mickey in his classic outfit. By the end of day three I had come to the conclusion it wasn't going to happen. My mom and I waked over to Disneyland to combine all my picture cards together before dinner and I was telling my mom I was bummed about it. As we were leaving the park my mom got excited and saw that Mickey was standing by the entrance taking pictures. YAY! I got my picture I wanted the whole trip.
We had such a great time and I can't wait to go back! Colton loved it and I will never forget how excited he was the whole time. I feel so lucky that we were able to take the time and go on such a great vacation and I am also so grateful for the great family I have. This vacation would not have been the same without them. The goal is to go again in two years and I really hope more of the family can come. Until then though Colton thinks Disneyland is closed and I will let him keep thinking that for the next two years otherwise he will ask to go everyday!

After breakfast we went over to Disneyland to meet the grandparents and to spend the day on all the kid rides. We went on all the kid rides, over to Toonland to play and over to the Winnie the Pooh ride. After we it up all those rides it was about 7:00, since there was a very small line at Splash Mountain some of the people decided to ride that. While they were going on that ride I took Colton up to some of the stores to see if I could find us both a shirt to wear for the next day. The poor kid was so exhausted that as soon as I picked him up (since I was a mean mom and wouldn't push a stroller for him and made him walk) he fell asleep. I then sat on a bench and waited about 30 minutes for everyone to go on Indiana Jones and then we all went on the Jungle Cruise. At that time the park was just about to close so we headed back to the hotel. Since Colton is so big now and heavy there was no way I was going to be able to carry him all the way back to the hotel. Since he was just so tired, and kind of a momma's boy, he wouldn't let anyone else carry him. Luckily my step dad rocks and hurried back to the hotel while my mom and I waited for him to come back with the car.
Our first day was so fun and we couldn't wait to spend two more days at The Happiest Place on Earth!
