BSM- Just Another Day at the House of Mouse

We're [sadly] in the final countdown of the annual pass to Disneyland. It has been a glorious adventure over the last year and I'm already going through withdraws. But it is what it is, and on July 31st we will no longer be able to go to the Mouse House on the drop of a dime.

So I can only dedicate this week's best shot to one of the many from our [almost] monthly visits to Disneyland. As I mentioned a few weeks back, there is that face Harrison makes that I can't so "no" to; then there is this face that he makes as we wait for the carousal...

Yeah, that doesn't get him far...

Then there are those cute little toddler lips and still-slightly chubby cheeks that I just want to kiss when we stop to rest and watch the Parade of Dreams pass by after a thorough soaking at Bug's Land in California Adventure.

But my best shot of the day would be that of a 3-year-old's shear joy at just getting wet - Theme Park or no...

And in case you didn't notice these shots are in reverse sequence of events, we he went from getting wet to watching the parade while getting dry to making faces in Fantasyland.


Harrison and I also had the pleasure of joining up for some friends [and their good friends as well] to ride on some attractions together. What a joy for Harrison, they were nice enough to take him on the Tea Cups along with their friend's 4-year-old daughter; something he has wanted to do and I JUST CAN'T do (without getting dreadfully motion sick, that is). Fine with me because I got to watch Harrison from a far and stay with their absolutely adorable 1-year-old!

Isn't he just the cutest?! Harrison calls him "My favorite baby-A..." Thanks again, J & T, we enjoyed spending time with you!!

how fun..I miss our passes. They just ran out too. I love the "wet" pictures and oh yes the rest time while watching the parade! We are so lucky to live so close to the happiest place on earth! hehe

MamaGeek said...

What lovely shots, I have ALWAYS wanted to ride in a teacup - that was way to cool. Harrison is just one CUTE kid!

Christina said...

Awww, it's the end of an era! But so many wonderful memories you've made there. I think I'd be skipping the spinning teacups, too! :D

Ah, kids and getting wet. Sometimes I think that's what makes the summer fly by. We turn the sprinkler on the in the front yard and when no one's looking my 3 year old is already in it. Wonderful pictures. :)

Mia's Mama said...

What fun shots. I also dig the wet photo. Yes, favorite baby-A is a cutie :)

Wonderful shots! Makes me want to go for a spin in a giant teacup.

Oh for going to Disneyland - lol - enjoy your last few visits - if I ever get the chance to live in California we will so have annual passes - ;)

Why do the passes run out in the middle of Summer? We have Sea World and Six Flags passes and they go from Jan to Dec. Not that there's a "right" way but it seems like you'd want to have the pass all through Summer. I'll send Mickey an email so you and your cute guy can go back. He really is just adorable.

love the dripping harrison -- why is it that kids always look so cute wet? adults, not so much :).

Mandaroo said...

I can't handle those teacups, either! But, the kids sure enjoy them, huh? I missed our WAP passes this year, but they just sent me a deal I probably can't refuse in the mail today! : ) So we may be planning a visit there soon! Cute---with the wet face and the one with scrunchy nose!!!

Maggie said...

How fun! I have to agree, I love the shot in the teacups -- although that face his is making is pretty funny!

kim said...

Is it just me or does Harrison look so much older in the photo of him all wet?
Oh to live so close to Disney.

Jaimee said...

Wow...how cool to be able to be at Disney so often! Love his face in that first one!

carrie said...

Awww..I'm sad for you all, too! Will you renew? We have to meet up there sometime! (And the aquarium, and the zoo, and the Gardens...so much to do, so little time!)

And yeah...what happened to H. in that last photo - he looks like a BIG boy all of a sudden!!
