Happiest Faces @ The Happiest Place on Earth(click)

Oh man. That was cool. Atticus had a blast. Every morning he would wake with the sun, despite the near darkness provided by the thick curtains, climb in his stroller (which he doesn't care for) and sit in front of the door saying, "Go". So we went. The parks were awesome. Disneyland was crowded, especially on the 5th, so we didn't do a lot, other than walk around and look at stuff. A main quest for us was to comb both parks for The Happiest Faces on Earth exhibits. These are giant collages throughout both parks that represent various Disney characters, rides, or even Walt himself. The pictures are made up of thousands of smaller photos submitted by guests that reflect their own trips to Disneyland over the first 50 years. We submitted a few photos, mostly of Atticus, and most were used. 17 times actually. A few of the photos were used numerous times. Before we found a list of our photos Tricia happened to find one of Atticus in the Finding Nemo picture while standing next to it. His hair is an eye catcher. The funny thing is that the picture she found wasn't on the list. A cast member told us that there were a lot of photos thrown in as filler after the fact, so that 17 is actually a low estimate. Not only that, there will be more used in future collections. Basically, Atticus (and Nana mostly) are all over both Disney parks. How cool is that? For more on the trip look at I'm too lazy to write things twice, and cut & paste is so passe.

Thanks so much for sharing all the pictures. How neat that Atticus (& I) are in so many of the murals. Now I will need to get over there and see for myself. It sounds like you had a really fun time, I'm so glad you were able to take such a nice family vacation.
