Disney, Through Dylan's Lens

By Meghan Gesswein |

After a somewhat challenging start, we ended up having a fantastic time at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure last week. The boys loved it as much as any 4- and 7-year-olds can, and the baby even seemed to enjoy it. Except towards the very end, when all he wanted was to get out of his stroller. But who can blame him?

At one point during our trip, my husband and my 4-year-old headed off to go on the ride Tower of Terror at Disney’s California Adventure. My 7-year-old was not at all interested on going on a “scary” ride, so he stayed behind with the baby and me. As we walked around the park, he asked if he could use my (new) camera to take some pictures. I was a little nervous about handing it over, but finally gave in and let him use it for a few minutes.

It was adorable to see him walk around holding it as carefully as he could, and seeing his little mind work trying to decide what to take a picture of was really entertaining. It was fun to look at the pictures and see things through his lens. He ended up noticing things I never would have, and now we have some great (and some not so great) photos of our trip that we never would have had otherwise.

You can check them out below, and you can read more about our trip on my personal blog, here.

    My favorite thing about the family photo was when Dylan asked if he could take our picture and then walking away the other direction! It turned out great, though!!
