Our friends Nate and Julia took a romantic trip to Disneyland last week and left Odin, their toddler, home with his grandmas. They were going to be at the land of Disney for four days, and they thought it would be fun to have the little guy with them perhaps for just the last day so they called me and proposed that if I would pick him up from his grandma and drive him the two hours to Disneyland, they would pay for admission tickets for Tucker and I. Of course I said sure! Thursday I let Tucker play hooky from school (I know, bad mom, but the kid is reading at a fourth grade level and does math in his head faster than I do so I don't think one day is going to set him back much) and we picked up Odin and made the drive. Above is Tucker on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and waiting in line for Snow White's Scary ride.
Here we are in line for Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.
Of course, had to get Mickey ears. Tuck's only been to Disney once before, and somehow we neglected to get him the obligatory ears so I corrected that on this trip!
Odin got some ears, too!
Nate very kindly paid for Tucker to build his own light saber. Tucker is not in a bad mood, he's quite happy but apparently a true red light saber jedi should look stern when taking photos.
Here's Tuck posing at the entrance to Frontierland. As you can tell from this pic, it was not very crowded that day which was awesome! Shortly after this my phone died and my picture taking was brought to an abrupt halt. We had a great time, though. We did the Indiana Jones ride, explored Tarzan's treehouse, did Star Tours, and much more! We had so much fun I've started thinking seriously about getting an annual pass for a year and going once a month or something. He really is at the perfect age for it!
