    A Combo Easter/Birthday Trip! (Picture HEAVY!!!)

    Came down from the Bay Area on Saturday 4/7 for my sons 3rd birthday and Easter on the 8th! Turned out to be quite an adventure. Our Car broke down on the 5 just past Pyramid Lake, and were towed into Valencia. (Thank goodness for AAA and extended warranties) Got in a rental and we continued. An hour later and everything would have been closed for the Easter Holiday and we would have had Joshua's birthday and Easter in a motel near Magic Mountain instead. So although it was bad, it could have been MUCH worse.

    Got to the park, met with an old friend at Trader Sams (Downtown Disney and Sams were PACKED on the night before Easter) Stayed at the Desert Inn, which has gone up in price in the past year, but then all the motels on Harbor have, and they were very nice. Close walk to the gate across the street.

    Woke Up Easter Morning, and headed over to Storytellers Cafe for Easter Brunch and Joshua's Birthday breakfast!







































    More to come....

    Glad you didn't let the car trouble stop the magic. Looks like you guys had a great trip!

    What better place to spend a birthday than... Disneyland! Glad the trip turned out great! Holy cow your kids are growing! I think the last time I saw your wife she was pregnant with your son at one of the anniversary meets! (I didn't see her at Expo last summer...) Great shot of all of you together and the last shot of your sleeping son... priceless!

    I have to tell you, these are some of the best vacation photos I have ever seen. Some of them look professional. You have a wonderful photography eye and you framed your shots very well. Keep taking great pictures and sharing them! It was so cool to vicariously experience your trip!
