This week, we visited our most favorite place on Earth: The Disneyland Resort. It had been three years since our whole immediate family went to Disneyland together, and Aidyn inched his way up to the required 46" to ride the looming Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Forbidden Eye.
To celebrate his new growth (in height and mettle), we headed straight for Indiana Jones. Here is Aidyn and his dad snaking up to the entrance of the temple.
We were very careful not to step on diamond-shaped stones. We saw what happens when you do that!
Aidyn, his Granny, and I, near the projection room, where Aidyn is vowing not to look into the eyes of Mara...
Aidyn was the lucky driver for this adventure!
If he "survived" the ride, we promised him an Indiana Jones fedora...
Here's our proud adventurer, flanked by Grandma and Daddy.
Next, we headed over to Tomorrowland to ride Star Tours: The Adventure Continues.

Genie (on his lamp-turned-phone): "Hey, you have your own reality show, you're famous for no reason, and now you're pregnant with Kanye's baby! Those are your three wishes! (hangs up)
A pretty pansy in Disneyland.
After our second day was nearly coming to a close, we thought the turbulent and wild Space Mountain roller coaster would be the perfect thrill ride to rejuvenate us.
How wrong we were (sorry for the camera glare!), though the lady behind us was clearly thrilled.
