Disneyland (Day Three)

We got up early!!!!!! We took advantage of the early entry into the park. It was wonderful to have an uncrowded park. We got to explore tomorrow land and fantasy land a ton.

Myra even got to ride on Space Mountain!! My kids are short so we had lots of issues and disappointment in the "am I tall enough" department. That is a story for another time. Anyway, I went on Star Tours with Vi & Ashton. Ewwwwwwwwwwwww. I literally almost barfed all over. If you have motion sickness, this is not the ride for you. Ashton & Vi had a great time, I was green for 75% of the day because of it. Blech!!

Nemo was fun, Vaughn really liked it.
Fantasyland my kids loved, especially Myra.

There were princesses and villans and toys and just so much to take in!

Later in the day we got to watch a Christmas parade. It was fun, except when one of the floats broke down. Santa was stuck in front of us, but man, he was good. Kept the crowd busy and happy. The reindeer were great too. It was all so professional and well choreographed. Good times.

Storybook was one of Darin's favorite. I mean, they even put tiny little wreaths on the doors of the tiny cottages!! Wow. He also took a lot or pictures of the architecture.

We had decided that we were going to go back tot he hotel for a mandatory "nap". Everyone slept except for me and Ashton. He was content to play games on the itouch, but at least he was off his feet. We wanted to be able to stay up for the fireworks that night. The Christmas fireworks were over the Castle. The castle lit up at the end with different lights and was so amazing. i loved it. The kids enjoyed that they recognized several of the songs.

In the evening while we were waiting for the fireworks we checked out toon town. We went on the Roger Rabbit ride. The kids liked it but had never seen the it wasn't quite as fun for them.

Vaughn had a hard time staying up for the fireworks, but we managed to survive! It was a fun day.
