Magic Day at the Magic Kingdom!

Thanks to our friend Wes, we got to get into Disneyland for the day. Jackson, Heidi, Skyler and Me. Having grown up in So.Cal., I have been many times in my life, but the usual crowd accompanied me...the nerve! But not on Wednesday! I have never been when the crowd was so light and easily navigated. Skyler was able to go on 4 major rides in an hour, and there was only a couple of rides that we really had a wait longer than about 15 minutes. We loved the Fall decor, hadn't seen that before. Goofy stopped to talk to J, but not long enough to take a picture with him. We visited ToonTown first

Our little man got very excited over the Buzz Lightyear toy, that later that day, when we saw one again, Gramma had to get! How can you pass up that face! Then on to Fantasyland. Jackson did not care too much for Toad's Wild Ride, the Carousel was okay.... but Dumbo, now there is a ride for this boy!this was a great shot we saw many times in the day. The guys doing what guys do!

posing with Mickey-O-Lantern,Then on to California Adventure for the last couple of hoursAt the end of a long day, we were tired, but glad for the day together. Our little guy looking weary....

and a BIG THANKS to Wes for the fun!

That baby keeps getting cuter. Fall is the best time to go to avoid crowds. I'm dying to take my kiddos.

What an adorable little boy your grandson is. How lucky you are to get to spend this time with him. When I was a child I would have given just about anything to be able to go to Disney World. I still would!
