The day started off at the hotel. I had to wake the kids up at 8 because they were still KNOCKED out and they stop serving breakfast at 9. So we ran downstairs and got some breakfast. Kayla kept telling us that we were going to Disneyland. Except when she said it she made it about 4 syllables long. Because some how in the passed two weeks she has picked up a Southern accent when she says certain words. It's so funny and really freaking cute! So Disney= two syllables Land+two syllables
Here are the kids waiting for the elevator.
Tyler walking with Kevin in the parking garage.
Waiting for the tram.
I swear she was WAY more excited this time!
More waiting and having fun!
I love this picture because she was so excited to be on the tram that she sat up on her feet and turned around to watch everything.
We started off the day this time in California Adventure. WAY more fun for the kids here. We saw Minnie Mouse. Apparently she is a pilot. Cody wanted to see her pilots license but we didn't ask her.
Then we went to Monstropulous ( no clue if that is spelled right! ) We got to see Sulley! Just in time too because he had to rush to be in a show that we watched!
The whole gang took a picture with him. Notice the extra person? That's another one of Mommy's fun friends. Her name is Stacy. She has a pass and comes to Disneyland regularly and so we thought she'd be a good person to have come with us. In fact, when Mommy called to tell her we were coming and wanted to see if she could come too her reply was, "Oh I'm off that day and I think I was planning on going by myself anyways!" Perfect!
Next Daddy and Kevin snuck off too ride a big kid ride while the girls took the kids to a Bug's Life world. LOTS of kids rides there. We spent a good amount of time here. Our first ride was kinda like the teacups but you didn't spin it yourself. It kinda did it on it's own. Oh also we were in lady bugs!
Next was a train ride and we also did some bumper cars!
Then we got in line to ride something that went in the air. It looked fun until we got up close and TYler didn't like how high up it went. He chickened out and him and mommy left the line. Kayla wanted to stay and ride it so Daddy stayed with her. It was funny because Kayla was so small you couldn't see her so it just looked like Cody was a pathetic guy who wanted to ride kid rides by himself! haha Love you Honey
Next we got some lunch! Kayla liked her nacho cheese sauce a little too much!
We also saw Mr. Incredible walking around
After this Kevin and I snuck off to do a big kid ride together. We did California Scream. That was fun and since it had scream in the title we decided that SCREAM was what we would do. IN fact, we had a contest to see who could scream louder. If you ask Kevin he won. If you want my opinion, Kevin was too busy hyperventilating to here me scream and when I screamed I was MUCH louder then him!
The guy behind us looks THRILLED he got to ride with us doesn't he?!
At this point we headed to Disneyland to hit a few things and then head back to California Adventure for there water color show.
Daddy and Kevin took off for a ride again and Stacy and Mommy took the kids to do some kid things. We saw Mickey Mouse
Check it out kids! EVen Mickey Mouse recycles!!!
Then we saw Pluto
Then we played at Donald's house
Next Mommy and Kevin got choosen to make the LONG voyage back to the car to get everyone pants and sweaters. We were SOOOOO tired at this point that our whole bodies hurt. It was awesome. Here we are on the tram
And here we are "resting" on the escalators. We were the ONLY ones on here and so Kevin sat down. Then I sat down and then we both sighed. Then at the bottom of the escalators there walked up an old man who looked up, saw two grown ups totally exhausted sitting on the escalators and laughed his booty off at us. NICE
Here we are about to go back to California Adventure but FIRST on the way back inside of the park, Kevin and I got the grown ups Pretzels in Down Town Disney and they were amazing! They were pepperoni, cheese and jalapeno! MMMMMM
Oh yes, before we went into Disneyland we rented strollers. I am telling you my whole body hurt from carrying Kayla on my shoulders or with my arms. Tyler was exhausted too so we got two of them. Tyler BARELY fit! While walking around Kayla decided to give herself a tattoo with her new MInnie MOuse Pen we got her. NICE
Also, in my family we have this thing that happens to us when we get SUPER excited. We get delirious! Like totally out of control laughing for no reason until you cry or pee yourself. Kayla had this happen to her about now. She was laughing hysterically at Kevin making faces while stuffing her face with cheese popcorn. It was a lovely combination!
And now we were off to WAIT for the water show. We waited for ever. We had to be there about an hour and a half or so early to get good seats. Kevin swore up and down that where we were going to stand was the best spot and despite what the people at Disneyland were telling us we would NOT get wet....just misty.
We got soaked and Kayla did not like it. I had brought an extra shirt for Cody that was long sleeved and he decided not to wear it. She started freaking out about the water so we wrapped it around her. I would have taken a picture because it was so cute but it was dark and I didn't want my camera to get WET! :)
Anyways. While we waited I took some artsy pictures.
The cotton candy we bought Tyler had a flashing light in the stick. It was a hit with him and Kayla!
Here is a picture from the water show. Tyler pretty much LOVED it! I took a video clip of him dancing during it. One of these days maybe I'll even put it on here ( not likely though ) haha
On the way home from Disneyland we got some McDonald's, We were all starving. Kayla had fallen asleep but mommy figured when we got back to the hotel and got her out of her car seat she would wake up and want to eat. NO SUCH LUCK. She was out cold. We layed her down on the pull out couch in her clothes. I took her shoes and socks off and she didn't wake up until morning when at 8 AM I woke the kids up again so we could get breakfast. Did I mention it was midnight again when we turned the lights off at the hotel. YIKES.
She was in this exact same position when I woke her up! Well that concludes day two. The next was sure to be fun since they were opening up some new rides and it was a Friday. Oh the joy I felt when thinking of how tired and sore I was and how many people we would have to fight through. Oh goody!
