Disneyland Day 1

Well, we had the TIME OF OUR LIVES in Disneyland a couple weeks ago.  I long for it. I can basically only blog about the things I have pictures of because I have no memory of anything else!  Good reminder for next year to record EVERYTHING.

After an uneventful plane ride, Christy picked us up from the airport and took us to our Embassy Suites hotel room.  I love staying there because there's a room for my kids and an awesome breakfast!  We got ready early the next morning and were super excited to get there. All the girls had ears except me--I bought mine the next day.

Even the tram ride from the parking lot to the park is exciting to the Andersons!

First thing we did was run to Radiator Springs to get to the front of the line for the Radiator Springs Racers. Thanks heavens for stroller passes, guys. We didn't have to wait twice! While half of us went on that ride, the other half took the littles on the other smaller Cars Land rides.  We love Radiator Springs!

Once we got Radiator Springs out of the way (there isn't much else we care about in California Adventure) we went to Disneyland and the girls played Bear Bear Queen with Merida and Peter Pan.

We loved the Tangled show by the Fantasy Faire. It was hilarious!

Did some fun Tomorrowland stuff.

Jungle Cruise!

Snow White :)

Danny took care of Jane a ton. I owe him!

Then it was time to go back to California Adventure.  Mom and Christy took the girls to the Disney Jr. show, Danny took Jane and got us a spot for the Pixar Parade, and Dad and Katy and I went to the TOWER OF TERROR.

I loved it! It was super fun and hilarious how scared we all acted.  ("Acted")

After the parade, we went on the Ariel ride a million times and the King Triton carousel several times while Danny and then my sisters and I got our spot for the World of Color show.

 It was amazing/awesome/fantastic.  We were a lot closer to the front this year, so when the show started we were surprised at how wet we got throughout the show. It wasn't until after the show that we realized it had been raining as well. :)  It was a soggy, exhausting walk back to our car-- but such a terrific day.

I'm really grateful to everyone for helping me out with Jane. And Ruby.  I didn't feel held back at all by the kids.  We all took care of everyone and it was fantastic.

This post just made my life. It also filled me with sorrow that we aren't there RIGHT NOW. I'm a bit bipolar lately.
