My goal is to finish blogging about Disneyland before the end of the year. Keep your fingers crossed, folks.
This was day 1 of 2 at California Adventure. We got in early and made a beeline for the Pier so we could get lots of rides in on California Screamin’. When we got there though, Aidon had a little freak out moment and decided he didn’t want to go on the coaster after all. Which was fine by me. 9am is a little early to be scared outta my pants.
Huz, Trenton and Jackson got to go on about 4 times in a row though.
Next we went to Toy Story Mania, which ended up being one of our favorite rides there. It’s all 3D and you shoot sling shots at different screens to rack up the points. Huz won and beat us all by a landslide.
Then we wandered over to Cars Land. This was all new to us, since the last time we were there it was still being built. I was so impressed. It was just like walking through Radiator Springs.
The Cars ride was the longest line we waited in our entire trip; about an hour and a half. It was absolutely worth it though.
I mean, come on. That looks so real!
Just getting lost in Hollywood.
These 3 braved Mickey’s Fun Wheel. This is the ferris wheel you couldn’t PAY me to go on again. I made the mistake of going on it in 2003 and I will never do it again. (This is also how I discovered I was afraid of heights.) Not only is this thing miles off the ground, it also swings. My palms are sweating just thinking about it.
After lunch, the boys needed to let out some energy, so we spent almost all afternoon at the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail. The boys had a blast earning their Wilderness Explorer Badges and climbing trees and rope bridges.
And I had a blast sitting on my butt and resting my tired feet for 3 hours.
They worked up an appetite, so for dinner we chose to go outside of the parks and Downtown Disney to Joe’s Crab Shack. First, because Huz and I love crab. Second, because Huz and I love to embarrass the crap outta our kids.
The crab came out, the bibs came on and the legs and butter went everywhere. Trenton was mortified that we were eating like animals; I think he said something about how shellfish didn’t deserve that.
But it was hard to hear him over all the cracking.
