Your Creative Timeout Party {No.93}

It is SO good to be back home!  While my boys don’t agree with me, vacationing at Disneyland can be incredibly exhausting.  I guess they slept the whole way home so they recovered more quickly :)  I don’t want to bore you (too much!) but I thought I’d share some of my favorite pics from our trip…


We stopped by Universal Studios before we headed to our hotel and the boys got nice and wet at the Curious George splash park and then got a pic with Curious George.

Then.  The highlight of my young boys’ lives.  Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.  I can’t even begin to describe how excited they were.  Bryce was literally jumping up and down and then Optimus said something about how he must be on Bumblebee’s team because he was wearing a yellow Bumblebee shirt – I think Bryce almost fainted.  Very, very cool attraction.

So this next pic is from Disneyland.  They had a special Iron Man suit display and (if you were willing to wait in a very long line…) the kids were able to do this demo thing where they stood in front of a screen and then they watched themselves being dressed in an Iron Man suit and then went through a training series where they learned how to shoot and fly.  Needless to say, both boys took the training very seriously.


We finally got a shot with Mickey in his house – very fun!

Years ago we had managed a pic with Mr. Incredible but now we’ve got one with Mrs. Incredible too!!

If you’re ever at Disneyland, eat lunch outside of Flo’s.  We saw Mater and Lightning McQueen pass by several times.  It was like lunch and a show!


We met lots of characters at Goofy’s Kitchen.

I got this awesome shot of Reece as we went through Monstro’s mouth on the Storybook Canal boat ride.

The boys did the canoeing while I hung back, too pics, and finished my fudge in peace.

Bryce is holding Skully from Jake and the Neverland Pirates while getting his picture with Mater.  He wouldn’t put that bird down.


Our favorite place to eat at Disneyland – Goofy’s Kitchen.

Bryce picked lollipops for his treat.  Big surprise there :)

…and now back to our regularly scheduled program…
