Many of you have asked me how Christopher liked Disneyland. The truth is, I think he was pretty overwhelmed with it all. He was always, VERY serious on the rides but every time we finished one he would say, "That was a good one!" or "That was fun!" He loved seeing the characters around the park. He was not too shy to give them big hugs and take a picture with them.
I definitely think the two highlights of our time there were Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage and the Pixar Play Parade...
Much to my dismay, ever since I got pregnant with Lucy and was sick in my first trimester, Christopher spends alot of time with his favorite babysitter, known as our television. This hasn't changed much since Lucy's arrival, but I will get back on my good Mom game eventually. He mostly watches Playhouse Disney in the mornings and then in the afternoons we might watch a movie. He loves all the Disney Pixar films like Toy Story, Monsters Inc., It's a Bug's Life, Cars, the list goes on. And for those of you who don't know Playhouse Disney, it consists of several different cartoons and shows that air every morning such as, Little Einstiens, Handy Manny, and Tigger and Pooh. So as you might imagine, when the characters from all these televisions greats were brought to life in front of my little boy's eyes, the excitement was just too much to handle!
I wish I could have captured the expression on his face when he saw Remi, the rat from Ratatouille, dancing on a huge float driving down the street at California Adventure during the parade. And when he peered around a lady in front of us to see all the bugs from It's a Bug's Life waddling towards him, he shouted, "Look! It's Bug's Wife! It's Bug's Wife!", each word increasing in volume. The reactions were very much the same when the Little Einsteins and Handy Manny appeared just a few feet in front of us on a stage where we were made to feel very much like we were in the cartoon itself. I don't think Cory or I either one could really tell you much about the parade or the stage performance. Our eyes were fixed on our boy having the time of his life, better than any parade or costume could offer.
So I guess Christopher had a good time at Disneyland but his parents had a great time.
