Disneyland (Day Two)

Our very first day going to Disneyland...ever!!! It was so fun. The kids and especially Darin (he had worked all night on Thursday night, and stayed up Friday travelling and didn't sleep at all for like 40 hours) we exhausted so we didn't get quite the early start to the adventures as I thought. Plus the kids kept waking each other up all night. But we got into the park and it was Magical. All decorated for We tried going on Indiana but it kept breaking down. It was weird, but I guess Tom Sawyer's Island is now a Pirate Island. The kids loved that place and probably would have stayed all day if we hadn't pulled them away kicking and screaming. Here are some pictures on the island, and near there.

We went on Pirates (the kids LOVED that ride!) and wandered around a bit. Then headed over to California Adventure for a work lunch. There we got to meet Mickey and Minnie!! So much fun!
Ashton did not appreciate getting his picture taken with characters. :( After the wonderful lunch and festivities, we spent a lot of time in CA. We found Sully!!! That must be the most awkward and hot costume there is!

Lisa & Erik met up with us and showed us the ropes. We went to Bug's Life area and spent so long there. The kids enjoyed all the rides that were just right for them. It was fun that everything was "big" and I felt like a tiny little bug! :)

Bugs and more bugs!! We went on more rides once we left there. I think we for sure took the most pictures this first day!!

We found Jesse, Buzz walked by and we missed him. Next year, I will Stalk find Buzz to get a "family" picture!
Then we found these Humungo ice creams. They were wonderful!! The kids made fun messes, but look at those grins! The Ferris wheel was really large!! I felt like I could see all the way to Utah!

While we were eating, there was some Fineus and Ferb street dancing presentation. The kids loved was very Disney Chanel! I can't wait for Radiator springs to be finished! It looks so fun.

We went back to Disneyland and got stuck in a traffic jam of people. A Christmas concert had just finished and holy people batman. It took forever trying to get anywhere. Buzz lightyear ride was the last thing Vaughn was kinda ok with doing. Lisa and Erik stayed up for the fireworks. Our kids were wasted once it started getting dark. Vaughn was flipping out. We took the monorail back to the hotel (which was cool to see all around the park). We ordered Pizza for dinner and it was wonderful! Thank goodness for Domino's!
