    Oh you KNOW I'll do a TR with Sophia!

    Thanks so much for your kind comments. I really appreciate it!

    Yes, I signed up for the half marathon. I can't even run two minutes straight... so... hope there are a lot of character photo ops in the first couple miles before I get swept off!! Haha

    I still need to finish this TR before I drive out to California on Thursday! Didn't get time to work on it this weekend. Drats.

    Re: First trip post-baby! April 28th & 29th

    Let's see if I can get this thing wrapped up before I have to go to sleep!

    We're now on Day 2, which was spent in DCA. I feel like I'm missing a piece, but apparently we started with lunch. I remember getting to Pacific Wharf and waiting for the places to open, so we got our food right at 11am. I decided to try the Mexican place, since I hadn't before, and I absolutely LOVED the taco platter I got!



    It was tasty, filling, and a decent price for the quality and quantity. I'll be trying this again!

    I know they're pests to most people, but I love seagulls.



    We headed over to Paradise Pier...



    And decided to hit Toy Story Midway Mania first before the lines got too long. This was by far our longest wait of the day, around 30-40 minutes. It was pretty warm, so people (including myself) would leave gaps in the line to stay in the shade.



    We boarded and were ready to go!



    This was a first for me!





    Next we took a spin on the carousel



    Hello, there.



    So sparkly



    I absolutely adore carousel animals, and King Triton's Carousel doesn't disappoint.



    Love the organ!



    Next we headed to Screamin' - a 10ish minute wait.





    Yes I took pictures on the coaster











    We ended up riding it three times in a row due to the short wait. I tried to time the ride photo to show I was taking a selfie, but my camera got cut off so you couldn't see what I was doing. Sad.

    We left PP and stopped to get a hug from Duffy



    Cutest dang selfie ever



    Love the details in the MU Meet and Greet



    We headed toward the back corner of the park for our Disney VISA photo. I was happy Stitch was out.



    He liked the red in my hair.

    Hopped onto Monster's Inc



    Then headed to another favorite - Tower of Terror!



    I'm posting this CM photo because really, he's a character, and adds to the show on this ride SO MUCH!



    Pulled Fastpasses, then headed to the Maleficent preview





    Decided we should split a sundae from Ghiradelli



    Delicious, but not the most amazing thing ever. I'd like to try another one.

    Headed back to Tower of Terror



    And rode it again (it was a walk on!)



    Looked for some characters on Buena Vista Street



    And hunted down Dug. (The CM with me informed me this was a "Duggie")



    Rode Jumping Jellyfish because my friend wanted to. It had no wait, the CMs laughed at my "terror", and it's a relaxing ride with a good view. Why not?





    Then went next door to a ride I have actually never done (my husband will never get on this one)





    It was SO SCARY and SO FUN! The wind was really blowing, and it was making swing out pretty far. Loved it!



    I absolutely love this ride:



    I was shocked at, what I thought, was a pretty dang short standby line. We still opted for Single Rider which took us about 30 minutes (shorter than Toy Story!)







    Not a fan of "Cars" movies, but the land has such wonderful details.



    Grabbed a yummy snack and headed back to our hotel to grab our stuff and fly back home!

    Is your upcoming Cali trip a DLR trip too?

    Great pics... I can occasionially get a selfie with my DSLR and the 24mm, but its a challenge.

    It is! Going for the 24 hour event this Friday! I'll be driving up Thursday with two friends for it.

    Selfies are easier with the point and shoot, but I've mastered my SLR selfie skills as well. Took a trip to Canada a couple years ago without anyone else who could operate it (even though I use it on "auto" ) so I had to document my whole trip via self timer and selfies.

    Ha ha still reading. Love the silly swings.

    I'm looking forward to the tacos at DCA. I usually get it at Disneyland but there are more options in pacific wharf for others. Plus in Disneyland last time they didn't give sour cream guac & salsa. Wierd.

    Have fun this weekend. Sounds crazy. I don't know how you can get tr's done with baby!!! Supermom.

    Sour cream, guac, and salsa are what MAKE the tacos! I would've gone back and asked for those!

    My husband had taken Sophie to daycare and I had an hour or so before I needed to head to bed ---- TR time! Haha

    I love the idea of documenting a trip by taking pictures. I need to practice taking pictures of myself with my iPhone instead of my camera. I have never been good at that. I need to get better, because it would be great having pictures of myself on rides.

    Great trip report Kelly.

    I love the Silly Swings! They are so much better than the ones at the Fair.

    Thank you! Some tips from my experience - Hold the camera at an angle above you to get a more flattering photo, and hold it out as far as you can with your lens zoomed out as wide as it goes (you can always crop it!). Good luck!

    Those things were SO MUCH FUN! I used to go on swings at fairs but not since I was little. I definitely don't remember them being that awesome.
