Our Family Vacation

In February we decided it was time we took a family vacation. This first night we stayed in Las Vegas, where we rode the Gondolas at the Venetian, and then walked over to watch the fountains at the Bellagio (which Cohen and Scheyd loved). The next morning we left for.......Disneyland!

Who doesn't love Goofy?! Cohen was a little shy at first, but then warmed right up.

Cohen about to ride Roger Rabbit with dad. It was his first ride and turned out to be one of his favorites!

Beth and Ginger in Tomorrowland

Our happy little guy. Even though he was stuck in a car seat, stroller, or in someones arms and never really got the chance to just get down and play he was always so smiley and happy!

We were at Disneyland for 6 days, and every one of them we had to go visit Lightening McQueen. This was Cohen's first time seeing him and he was so excited he didn't know what to do so he just stood there and pointed at them. So funny! Later he asked me "how come they aren't movin mom? are they being shy?"

Waiting in's never easy but we were lucky to have mostly 10-15 minute waits.

Cohen and Riley waiting to see Donald Duck.

Since it was also Cohen's 3rd birthday we went to Ride Makerz and let him pick out and build his very own car! He absolutely loved it, this boy is all about cars!

Here he is putting the tires on all by himself.

Too cute, I love that they can barely hold the boxes "garages" up, but both insisted on carrying them.

One day we decided to take a break from Disneyland to go swimming.

On our last day, which was also Cohen's 3rd birthday Ginger's good friend Lindsey met us there with her son Landon to spend the day! She lives in Palm Springs and doesn't get to come visit much so this was a nice surprise.

Birthday Boy!!

Cohen got a special phone call from Goofy on his birthday. He got to talk to him and then listen while he sang him happy birthday.

To celebrate we had breakfast with Mickey and friends. It was fun to have all the characters walk around and say while we ate. Cohen got a birthday balloon and badge with his name that made it even more special.

pucker up

Cohen had to go show Lightening his new birthday hat and badge before we could leave.

It was so nice to get away and just relax and have fun with our little family. The long drive wasn't to bad either, both boys were troopers!
