We have a trip planned in January, along with a Tinker Bell Half-Marathon for me, and so Aidyn requested a Disneyland-themed party for his eighth birthday. The day was busybusybusy, and I wish I would have taken more pictures.

Though the kids were too busy running and playing outside to watch, we showed vintage Disneyland videos such as The Disney Story, coverage from opening day~ July 17th, 1955, and vintage Disneyland shorts.
I gleaned inspiration for my own Disneyland nuttiness and the following websites, which prove that I am not the only crazy one out there!
