Road trip destination: Los Angeles

We recently took a road trip to Southern California! First stop: Disneyland in Anaheim! Michael loved it! Chris loved that there were more things for us to do with a 17 month old than he thought there would be.

We enjoyed taking Michael to Toon Town, the Tea Cups, the Carousel, It's a Small World and The Storybook ride. This picture was taken on the Carousel. Michael was fixated for a minute on the horse next to him! We also got to see the parade! It was a lot of fun but tiring! As any day at a theme park should be! Everyone warned me that Disneyland is not as great as Disney World (in Florida). It was a lot smaller in size but all the Disney magic was there! It is a lot of fun to see it through the eyes of a toddler.

While we were in LA, we also went to the Los Angeles Zoo, The Americana in Glendale, and Grauman's Chinese Theater. We also walked down Hollywood Boulevard looking at all of the "Stars" on the sidewalk, the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

It was a really fun, busy trip. We find that keeping Michael busy and occupied keeps us sane. If he gets bored, he gets fussy. So we wore ourselves out but we also loved every minute of it. LA and it's surrounding cities is a neat place. There is still a lot to see so I am sure we will be back.
