Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
This year, we're going as M&Ms.

And with all the family that is out visiting for Ian and Alli's birthday, we're a whole bag full of M&Ms.

Ian and Alli's birthday party

Happy Birthday Alli and Ian! Because they are close together, and because we have family visiting right between their two birthdays, we split the difference and had a combined birthday party for both of them! Any surprise that it's a Minnie and Mickey theme?

So all the decorations as well took on Mickey and Minnie colors.

Underwood Family Pumpkin Farm, Happy Birthday Alli!

Happy Birthday Alli! A year ago today, your mom and I were at the hospital waiting for you to arrive! Today we're headed to Underwood Family Farms about an hour north of here for a Fall Festival! We certainly love our pumpkins!

Six Flags Magic Mountain with Jacob

"Six Flags?" you say. "Not Disneyland?"
Yes, it's true. Over the Labor Day weekend, there was a sale that was just too good to pass up. A Gold Level Season Pass, good through the end of 2017, plus free parking, for only $74.99. Amazing, right?
Now, I will be one of the first to admit that while Disneyland is an amazing theme park, the "thrill" factor of many of the rides is low. It's always better to enjoy a day at a park with a friend who will ride all the same things you do. Obviously that means Theresa wasn't going to be joining me. Luckily for me, Jacob also loves thrill rides, doesn't get motion sick, and will ride anything! He bought a Season Pass the same day I did and we started making our plans!

Club 33 dinner with friends

It's a Tuesday night. What are we doing all dressed up and what are we doing at Disneyland without kids?
There's only a few restaurants here at Disneyland that you might get dressed up for. Tonight we're dining at "that" one. The one that is on many Disney Fan's bucket list. The one and only Club 33!

Ian and Joe's Disneyland Day

Happy Sunday! It's the day that the Flowers family usually goes to Disneyland. We'd been talking about it for a couple days ahead of time, but when Sunday morning rolled around, Alli woke up with a fever. Poor Alli.
I was really looking forward to going too because one of my favorite artists Allison Lefcort was supposed to be there at an expo. Ian was also asking "Are we going to Disneyland?" as we're eating breakfast.
Theresa, is it okay if I take Ian to the parks today, just Daddy and Ian? Yes? Alright! Let's go buddy! We're going to have a lot of fun! For the 40 minute drive from home, I turned off the radio and the two of us just sang Disney songs the whole drive there.
The two of us hopped on a not too crowded tram and were on our way!
