The Happiest Birthday on Earth

Kate suggested I add photos from her real birthday. Now that was a party! She, Emily and I went to California for a long weekend. We visited Grandma Berkline and on Kate's birthday, we went to Disneyland because she got in for free. It was so fun! Kate and Emily are Disneyland die-hards so it's great going with them. We were there from open until close. And it was extra special because the park was Halloween-themed.
(P.S. I stole these from Kate's Facebook. I didn't have a purse-sized camera so Em and Kate have all the photos. I would have stolen some from Em, too, but I didn't see hers on her Facebook.)

Here we are on the tram ride into the park.


I think this is in line for the Haunted Mansion. (One of these things is not like the others ...)


This was on Small World. Thank goodness Grandma gave us her fans to use that day. It was HOT!


This is Mullet Man and his woman. We enjoyed laughing at his expense.


Here is Kate, so scared of the pirates!


Here is Kate's birthday button. We kept track of how many times people told her "Happy Birthday." I think it was close to 50.


This is right before the BEST Star Tours ride EVER!
(If you get a chance, sit on the back row and lift up your feet and arms. Let the craziness take your body where it will!)



The Buzz Lightyear ride.


We got to eat dessert at the Blue Bayou. (Yes, dessert only. It's too pricey.) Little did we know that they were about to close down for good. We were lucky to even get a reservation ... and it was at 9:30PM, if I remember right.


The Blue Bayou.


On my favorite (NOT) ride, Splash Mountain.


Heading home in the deep abyss of LAX.

Yay!! Ahhhhh, what a fun time. I will forever remember Mullet Man and his awesome Alvin and the Chipmunks shirt. Yay for D-land and free B-days in 2009! And thanks again for celebrating with me. :)
