Mother's Day at Disneyland

I hope all the moms had a great weekend! I've seen so many cute pictures of homemade Mother's Day gifts. I can't wait till Ez is old enough to make me cards and crafts :)

Our weekend was jam-packed with Ez's party, and then Disneyland with my family on Mother's Day. Joe and I even managed to squeeze in a much-needed parent's-only date to see Avengers on Friday night. 

Considering Sunday was a holiday and also the Tinkerbell half marathon, the lines were a lot shorter than expected. I was happy because I finally got to meet Genie, one of my faves! I see him almost every time we go to Disneyland, but the timing has never worked out to actually get a picture with him. 

We discovered Ez is now tall enough to ride Autopia, which he's had his eye on for the last 7 months or so. Joe took him and as soon as it was over Ez threw a fit because he didn't want to leave so Grampa took him again. It's safe to say that's his new favorite ride by a long shot. He also got to meet Mater, and since he watches Mater's Tall Tales (on Netflix) daily, we thought he'd be super excited, but he actually got all shy and ran away when Mater asked for a high five. I guess it's pretty intimidating to meet your idols in the flesh. 

 Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Hope you felt spoiled and special this weekend. I know I did. And just for fun, here are a few flashbacks:

And my mom and I, when I was about Ez's age now:


  1. Mothers Day at Disneyland!? Wow there can't be much that would top that!

  2. Sounds like a busy fun filled weekend. Love when you can look back at those old pictures and share those memories

  3. So much fun! I'm jealous of all your fun Disney adventures. Happy Mother's Day!

  4. How does Mater give high fives? The autopia looks like our speedway...but cuter. Aria is recently tall enough for it and she digs it. Is it the type where the person controls the driving but on a little track? Love that you went to DL for Mother's Day - the carnations are fun, I got me one of those too! I wonder how many they have to get for Mother's Day.

  5. As soon as this page loaded I was SO excited to see genie!!! Love him too!!
    I love all the photos, you can see pure joy on that little face - so adorable!!
    Also love a good flashback- so cute!!!
    Happy mommas day! :)

  6. Mother's Day in Disneyland?! Looks like so much fun! Glad you had such a good weekend. Oh & you and your mom are like twins!

  7. oh my goodness! You mom looks exactly like you in that photo! Glad you had a good Mother's Day!!

  8. That is a perfect Mother's Day! And I love the flashbacks photos!
