St.Patty’s Day at Disneyland part I

This week is a little crazy so I will not have my normal scheduled posts…just hang with me:) I am also reading all your blogs just haven't had time to comment, thanks for still reading:)!

I am dedicating this post to the Hubby, Matthew Brian McCormick who was born on March 17, 1980, yesterday was his birthday. Yep he is Irish and was born on St.Patty’s Day, isn’t that fun?! This year Disneyland is letting everyone in for FREE on their birthday, so I kidnapped the Hubby and took him to the happiest place on earth:)

First His Birthday Breakfast: His fave, bacon, biscuits and eggs.

In His Birthday Bowl of Course:

Then I surprised him with his ticket to DisneyLand:) He was shocked!

7

I packed us a bunch of goodies + lunch, because everything at amusement parks cost an ARM AND A LEG!

8

Lots of bars,fruit,2 PB Sandwiches and chips for me and chips for him:)

9

My Mid Morning Snack on the drive there. I just love these bars and they hold me over which is GREAT!

14

Our first stop in the park, you just got to get a picture in front of the lawn:)

15

If it’s your birthday they give you a pin to wear on you shirt that says your name and Happy Birthday! EVERYONE said happy birthday to Hubby he felt real special;)

16

After a few rides we stopped for a picnic lunch, Naturally More PB Sammy, sweet potato chips, and a peach:)

17 I hate to say it but Naturally More might be my new favorite PB!

19 

Our fuel for the day! Love these Camelbak water bottles!

Now time for some fun pics, enjoy!

OMG this is SO cute!!! Disney Land!!!
I have never been! Not even the one in Paris...but that's actually Disney World!

FoodsThatFit said...

You two are a great looking couple!

What a fun day and a great surprise for your hubby. I have been to Disneyland once, but don't do well on the rides, awful motion sickness. The atmosphere there was very fun though!

That is a great idea to bring along snacks! It adds up so quickly eating at places like that and they usually don't have very healthy options!

Have a great day!

Rose said...

What a fun day for you and the hub! You guys are so fun!

Denise said...

You take good care of Hubby!! Looks like a really fun day!

GreenDogWine said...

serioulsy - how cute are you guys?!?! :)

happy birthday matt!! looks like you guys had a fantastic day!

Pearl said...

you guys are a gorgeous couple and how sweet of you to take him to disneyland on his bday!

p.s. - they let you take the food in? did you have to sneak it? cause i thought disneyland didn't allow you to bring food in unless it was something like a snack.. so no sandwiches :/

Kelly said...

Oh my gosh that looks like so much fun. I haven't been to Disney since I was 6 years old! Gotta do that.

Love all of the pics.

Niki said...

I love Disneyland! What a fun thing to do for your hubbys bday!!

Hallie said...

Disneyland is so smart with the birthday promotion...because no one goes to Disneyland alone so they get the guests' paid admissions, plus the food, parking, etc. Other theme parks should follow suit.

I am seriously considering making BF take me on my birthday (he's not a big fan of Disneyland, can you believe that?).

Mica said...

Fun times, you two are adorable! Happy Birthday to your hubby!

Lacey Nicole said...

Meghann said...

I sooo wanted to go to Disney for my birthday, but the timing didn't work out right. We're hoping to be able to do it for Caitlin's birthday though. Birthdays at disney are just so fun. we celebrated my sister's 21st there last year and had so much drinking around the world in Epcot and she loved the button too.

You know as many times as I have been to Disney World I have never actually been to Disneyland!

Julie said...

Sarah W. said...

Nobel4Lit said...

Definitely smart of you to pack all that with you before going to Disneyland. I can't say I did the same thing, though I think we brought water and trail mix...

Brian said...

Awesome bday suprise, and some nice goodies you brought with ya, good idea!!

Marianne said...

I haven't been to Disneyland since I was 8 years old! I should totally go for my birthday this year. Oh, wait, even the park entrance would be free, the trip down there sure wouldn't!
