Jude's Second Bday Extraganza

Hi there, I am a Disney lover and have been so many times I can't even count. Dh is not so much but somehow has been several times and I even convinced him to go to WDW for both our first times for our third wedding anniversay in Oct. 2011. I was 8 weeks pregnant which we didn't know when we planned but overall it was a great trip for me. So Here is our family, my mom and her boy friend and my sister and her bf and my brother and his wife are joining us down there. My brother and his wife live in balboa so you won't see them in pictures till later on. This is more of a pre trip report and when we get back I will update with the actual trip report. I want to use this as a scrapbook for Jude and my family so I am hoping I can actually finish this report.
Here the family: John my husband, Jude who is 22 months and Me Mallorie, I'm a type one diabetic have been since I was three which is hard when on these trips but am on the insulin pump and now sensor hope it helps as one of reasons DH gets annoyed is when on trips my blood is not ideal....




I have planned and purchased most of our things already. We will be flying into john wayne airport on Thursday 5/1 afternoon and hanging out for the remainder of day and will probably grab dinner in dtd. We are working on putting a backpack together for Jude as this is his bday present. Including a stuffed animal and a few airport/airplane activities.
I made his autograph book

which i am super excited about and all of our shirts except Judes for each day were in Disneyland. Below are what I made and when Jude is up from his nap I will add his shirts.




The plan so far is what I mentioned above and then for us to do Goofys Breakfast at Disneyhotel on Friday am with just our little family per DH's request. Then we will probably do California Adventure Friday and Disneyland Saturday and CA again on Sunday before we fly out sunday evening. I got an awesome deal at The Red Lion. As much as I wanted to do Disneyland hotel it just didn't go low enough and I couldn't see spedning over 400 a night. Although dissapointed I know we will have lots of other opportunities to stay there. I think thats about it for now. But will make sure I update as we get closer. 55 DAYS!!!!!

Sounds like such a fun trip!! We'll actually be there at the same time, arriving Friday, 5/2. I love all of the matching shirts, and Jude's shirts are adorable!! I need to order my girls' shirts asap! The banner and autograph book are so cute too! Can't wait to hear more!

Eight more days. Everything is set and paid for. We decided to do a rental car as we want to's too at store and are gonna do medieval times on Thursday to Jude's actual bday and my hubby has never been. All flew by and I can't believe we leave next week. I took on a daunting hard project last week. I decided I wanted a shirt for me for that we leave. Hardest one I've ever made. But I love it!

Updated Judes 2nd bday trip report

Wow, I cannot believe its already been two months. It has been crazy since we got back. I am finally able to sit down when Jude's napping to write this report. We had an amazing time. But the parks were ridculously packed almost at capacity. Having the magic morning let us get all the fantasy rides out of the way. So much was in refurbishment in the parks there was a lot we were not able to do. But please see below.
We started off Thursday Am and had mickey pancakes at home before jumping in the car and heading to the airport. I had cookies made that were supposed to resemble Lightening but not quite. They were delicious none the less.


And getting ready to leave and watching some mickey mouse clubhouse with daddy.




At the airport before our gate was changed. Jude loved playing with dusty and mimicing the planes outside.

First Full Day in CA
Carsland had to be the first stop and where we spent majority of day. Still just the three of us at this point. Pictures aren't great as DH took he did the best he could but he's not a photographer...

Waiting to get on Tow Mater's ride. They didn't have both sides open at all this weekend and it was crowded waited at least 30 minutes for this ride.


Jude and I in front of the sign waiting in line.

More ride pics


More waiting....

Juju and Daddy


Jude's favorite part of cars land the beads behind fillmore's food cart. lol


Sitting on tractors




We got lucky and came in with no wait for both Mater and they told us Lightening would be next in about 10 minutes.





The line ques were amazing in this land and we got to run right through and snap pics of course.

Luigis ride


Mater


Lightening Jude was escatic though you can't tell in the pic .


Caroseul one of Jude's fave things and he rode it about 10 times in a row. I think if we would have let him he would ride all day.


Me and my baby.
