My mom and dad went with us and I was glad they were there. Duncan is definitely a Papa's boy. He wanted my dad to carry him all the time or me. It was so cute watching him just look around at everything there. He was in awe of everything and every one. He loves other kids and older women. He loves the characters- he wasn't afraid of them at all. He met Pooh, Eeor, Tiger, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Rabbit, Chip and Dale, and Pluto and loved all of them. One of his favorite area's was Toon Town and The Bugs Life area in California Adventures. He loved everything except the Haunted Mansion, but that could have been because he was tired, but I think we'll wait until he is older to try that one again. He loved Pirates though. He just looked around at everything on each ride.
He was really good. He slept in his stroller and didn't have a hard time getting him to sleep in the hotel (i was worried about that) and he LOVED the ice cream. Justin and I both agreed that having kids at Disneyland is a lot different than going by yourselves, but it was better in a way. We were just happy to be there as a family.

After our trip to Disneyland we went to San Diego for a day. We stayed at The Dana on Mission- I really like that place. We went to the beach, didn't plan it too well. We decided that the pool would be better because Duncan would want to be in the sand too much and probably eating it. That night we went and met Justin's Uncle and his partner and they took us to dinner. It was a lot of fun. We had a great time visiting with them and after we left I realized I didn't get a picture with them. Duh!! They have a miniature schnauzer (?) and she and Duncan LOVED each other. They were playing and Ava (the dog) I think seriously thought Duncan was the best toy ever. It was so fun getting to visit with them.

Since Duncan was about 4 or 5 months old he has loved watching Mickey Mouse Club House on Disney. He would be fussy and it would come on and he would instantly stop what he was doing when Mickey came on screen. He still loves him and is in a trance when he watches that show. I remember saying before I had kids that I wouldn't really let them watch too much t.v., but Mickey Mouse is really educational. They teach some really good problem solving skills and math-so if he watches it know, maybe he will be good at math.
But it was so cute when we finally took him to Toontown to meet Mickey. We walked through the house and it takes you back and you have to get in a line and they take you into meet him. There was hardly anyone there so we didn't have to wait long. He was so excited when Mickey took him. He smiled and wanted to touch his nose. So cute. I am excited that he isn't afraid of the characters.
