Almost 13! {Disneyland} Shelley Dee Photography ~ Lifestyle & Wedding Photography ~ Marin, Napa, Sonoma County Photographer...Shelley Hohe

I can't believe in less than 4 months our babies (Thomas and Katelyn) will be teenagers!  Yep that's right our twins are turning the big 13!  How did that happen so fast???  It still seems like just yesterday I was holding both of them at the same time in my arms.  With this special milestone of a birthday we want to do something extra special for them.  We have thought about throwing them a big birthday party with family and friends, going to Tahoe so they can experience some yummy buffets (our kids act like we never feed them and they are always telling us they can't wait till the day that they don't have to order off the kids menu :), renting a motorhome and driving up to Canada or going back to Disneyland and spending their actual birthday in the Happiest Place on Earth!!!   I am not sure what we are doing as of yet, but somehow we will get back to Disneyland soon.

We always have so much fun when we go to Disneyland and being the Happiest Place on Earth you just can't help but have fun and be HAPPY!  The last time we went to Disneyland/California Adventure it was so exciting because the kids were finally big enough to go on ALL the big rides.  Some of our favorite rides are Soaring Over California (this ride is breathtaking), California Screamin' (best roller coaster ever!!!), Star Tours (of course)!, Indiana Jones (except for the last time the ride broke down & stopped right at the part where the huge boulder looked like it was about to fall on was pretty scary) and last but not least...Space Mountain.  Besides the rides I love all the parades and musicals.  My favorite musical is Aladdin, the last time we went it wasn't playing, so I am making sure it will be playing the next time we go.  We usually go to Disneyland the week before Thanksgiving.  It is the best time to go because most of the Christmas decorations are up, there are no lines due to the fact it's right before a vacation week for most people and the weather is perfect...not too hot!  The only downside of going this time of year is the fact that some rides could be closed because they are decorating for Christmas.  Usually this might be It's a Small World, The Haunted Mansion or Pirates of the Caribbean, but all 3 of them are never closed down at the same time.

If we do go for the kids birthday we will definitely have to make good plans being that their birthday falls around Fathers Day weekend.  It is always busy in Disneyland this time of year and very hot.  Either way I know we will have a wonderful time where ever we go!!!

Here are some photos from our last trip to Disneyland which was a little over a year ago.  This trip I decided to bring my dslr so I could take some good photos.  You can tell Thomas was not too happy in most of these photos...all he wanted to do was go on the rides.  Being the photographer I am I just had to take some pictures.  I promised them next time I won't bring my big camera...just my iPhone :)
