Disneyland Day Two!!

I have already gotten out of order. We spent all of Day One in Disneyland and then all of Day Two at California Adventure. Which worked out great so we could see the parade at each one. Which I am still singing the songs too! 5,4,3,2, FUN!!
The Play Parade got us soaking wet from all the water guns they shoot but it was so hot I didn't mind a bit. And hello, seeing the REAL Lightening McQueen? The faces on my Cars loving boys when they saw him made this trip worth every single penny. Mater at the end was just icing on the cake.
At the entrance of California Adventure!
It was all decorated so cute for Halloween. I loved it.
After going on Soaring over California (one of my new favorites there, thankfully Greg was tall enough to ride it) we went over to the Redwoods area..the boys got to help a "Ranger" open the ride and we were all sworn in as citizens as the boys helped to open the ropes and yell to the other Rangers that the ride was open.

The boys were dying to try this and both fell and flipped off the first time ending in tears. Then they watched a few other (much older) kids do it and I was so proud of Graham and Greg who walked right back up in line, tried it again and did it!

We did almost everything over on that side, the Talking with Crush was super cute and even the Playhouse Disney show was a lot of fun. We did NOT like the It's Tough to be a Bug where you get exterminated and spiders fly down from the ceiling. How scary is that to a 3 year old? I had to cover Greg's eyes. Boooo!
We went back over to Disneyland at the end of the day to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. This looks just like one of their GeoTrax trains so they were talking all day about going. Our longest line of the entire trip at about 20 minutes, we get on, wheeeee, get off and Graham is ticked. Like someone forgot to tell him it was a runaway train. Oops. I was a sneaky mom but we all lived to tell about it. He is now telling me that he will like it better next time we go!

Sounds like a wonderful trip! That is such a great age to take them too because they really enjoy it and remember the fun!

I feel like I was there again:) Although when we were there it was 5,000 degrees and I was burnt to a crisp! We saved Soaring over California for the last day and then weren't able to go. I was bummed-love that ride! The Bug's Life one scared my girls too:( Did you see Alladin? I bet the boys are still talking about their trip. How fun to create such memories:)
