Irvine Park Christmas Train 2011

Last year we had a blast at the Irvine Park Christmas Train!  (CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT!)  

We visited Irvine Park again this week and enjoyed our visit once again.

 Just like Halloween, we couldn't keep Zachary away from the photo cutouts!

 Patiently waiting for the train!

 When it finally arrived, Zachary couldn't contain his joy!
When he saw the train......

 He squealed...

 He laughed...

 And he couldn't stop pointing!

 We were glad Uncle Brian, Cousin Sam, and Auntie Tammie could join us this year!

Uncle Bob also joined in the fun!

 Zachary and Sam were SO good for Santa!
(Mrs. Claus thought they were brothers!)

It was no problem to get Zachary to sit on Santa's lap!
He even cracked a smile!

It was MUCH more crowded this year when we went on the Christmas Train, but it was a nice night and  we look forward to next year!

Disneyland Christmas Visit 2011

This time last year, Zachary was visiting Disneyland for the very first time!  (Click HERE to check it out!) 

Since then, he has visited MANY times thanks to Joey and I having annual passes.  It is SO nice to drop by Disneyland, or California Adventure, for just a few hours.  We go just long enough for Zachary to enjoy himself, but not get overly tired.

On Monday, we renewed (and upgraded) our passes and enjoyed the very busy park for a few hours.  We only did a few things, but it was awesome to see the Christmas decorations and to get a little visit in with Mickey.

 He loved sitting with his Papa (Joey's Dad) on the tram!

 He enjoyed riding "It's a Small World Holiday."

 Meeting Mickey was awesome!  
We waited in a long line, but it was worth it!

 Mickey wanted him to sit next to him, and Zachary had no hesitation!
He has been in a Mickey phase lately and LOVES saying his name over and over!
(He calls him Em-A, instead of Mickey!)

 Zachary wore his fancy hat for the train ride to Main Street.

We stopped and bought him his first Mickey plush and he wouldn't let it go for a picture next to the tree!
