The week of Brandon's and Jeanessa's wedding, the entire Blair family went to Disneyland. It was very fun and the first time the entire family has been together in at least 8 years! Kade and Tadd both met cousins for the first time. We were the ticket purchasers so we waited at the front for quite a while to meet people at the front gates. While we were waiting Kade got to see quite a few "people from the movies". We only got pictures with Pluto and the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland but we also saw Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Mary Poppins! Kade was in heaven. Tadd, didn't think it was that awesome.
Once we rounded everyone up, we all went on the Buzz Lightyear ride. This one is my favorite to take pictures in because the lights are all so cool and you can do some fun light painting with a long shutter!
Then we went on Finding Nemo.
Some of the nephews were chosen out of the crowd to do the Jedi training. All of their wildest dreams came true at that moment.
While all the taller kids went on Indiana Jones, we went on the Jungle Cruise with Melody, Nathan and Hudson. We kept getting misted by all the water and it felt amazing. It was such a hot day!
Pictures happened, as they always do at Blair functions.
Grandma and Grandpa with ALL 10 grandchildren....first time ever.
The entire family. Not one person was missing. First time in at least 8 years. There have been at least 14 additions to the family since the last complete family photo was taken.
We all went on Pirates together. Luckily the lines weren't horrendous. They all moved pretty quickly too.
After a few more rides with the whole family, everyone kind of broke off and did their own things.
We went into Fantasy Land where all the kid rides are. At this point, because we were with just our little family, we let Kade choose everything we went on. Even if that meant the carousel...twice.
The one thing Kade had been begging for since we told him we were going to Disneyland, was to ride on the McQueen ride. It's over at California Adventure and we made it over there just in time. Kade was so tired. But we made it. FINALLY. I couldn't go on the McQueen ride due to being with child, so Kade and Aaron went alone. Tadd and I waited. While we waited, we walked through shops, went on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, and just hung out. For a long time. The wait for the ride was 2.5 hours. I wish we'd gone over there sooner so Kade could have gone on more of the rides but we'll just have to go back again soon. They really did an amazing job making cars land look just like Radiator Springs!
