If you knew my family, then you would know that we are all HUGE Disney fans! Anything Disney we love, especially the traditional yearly trip to Disneyland. I have probably been there at least 20 times in my lifetime. When I met Matthew and found out he had never been, I was astonished and quite disappointed. It took almost three years to finally convince him that it was a great vacation spot and NOT a waste of money...It's been nearly seven years since my last adventure and I couldn't wait to go again...

Everytime there is a special event in the family (my little sister Tiffany's High School Graduation in this case) we take a trip to Disneyland. We met my family in California and spent 4 days between Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure. I had been planning this trip for nearly a year; checking out disney.com everyday at work to see all of the wonderful things we could do and planning every detail. I was very nervous to take Matthew as he complained a lot and was very upset that he never got to go with his family as a child.

After much anticipation, stress and concern, the trip turned out wonderfully. Matthew loved it and I think he would be willing to go back again (although, he has made it clear that the next family vacation will be spent fishing and camping at Yellowstone as was his family tradition). I hope you enjoy the pictures of us with my family! :)
