Day 4, Disney’s California Adventure and an unexpected side trip…

Thursday, August 14, 2008

So, I had just run up the stairs to the Golden Zephyr when Andrew came running behind me…”Mom, something is wrong with Casey…I mean really wrong”. So I ran back down the stairs to see Casey holding his mouth and walking in circles. When I went up to him, he held out his hand to give me something…it was a LARGE PIECE OF HIS TOOTH!

I made him open his mouth and show me and he had chipped out a large triangular piece of his top FRONT tooth. He was quite calm and very brave, but you could tell he was in a lot of pain. So we decided to head back to the hotel and call it a day, since there wasn’t much we could do tonight to get to a dentist. We got back to the room with him and Sarah being quite quiet. We decided that Sarah must have felt guilty because she and he were goofing around when it happened. So I decided to try to make Casey feel better and called him and Sarah over. I showed him Sarah’s 2 bottom front teeth and said “don’t worry, these aren’t real and they look just fine! (She knocked them out when she was 13 months old and even the adult teeth were damaged so they were ground down and nicely rebuilt when she was about 12.) Well, she then freaked out and said “What, why didn’t you tell me they weren’t real?” I was like…What??!?! You don’t remember that? So we were laughing because her reaction was just NOT what I was expecting. It was pretty funny! When we got to the room, Sarah and Casey went to bed. They were both pretty worn out!

Andrew, Emily and I went to the 11th floor concierge lounge to see if we could watch the fireworks from up there. We have been to Disneyland 3 times over the past few years and I have NEVER seen the fireworks. They are either not showing when we are there, or the weather hasn’t cooperated. So I am determined to see them this trip! We got settled and the concierge staff who helped me with some dentist phone numbers were very kind and got me a glass of wine even though they had officially stopped serving wine for the evening. We have a GREAT concierge staff this trip! What they do for the fireworks is to open all the sliding doors to the outside, turn off the lights and pipe the music in for the show. It is a great way to watch the fireworks!!!!

We waited and they kept announcing that the winds were too high and the fireworks were on hold and likely to be cancelled. UGH! Am I never going to see them? But we waited and the concierge server, Robert, told me that they set off balloons in the park to see how the winds in the higher elevation are, they do this right at show time and wait for the results to see if it is safe. About 10 minutes later, the fireworks did end up starting. Yippee!!! We really enjoyed the show and came back to the room and headed off to bed for the night. We all slept well!

I am an early riser and being 2 hours difference, I was up bright and early. I was able to catch up on some emails etc. I called the dentist at home and they said that if Casey isn’t in pain, we could leave the tooth until we got home, but if it hurt, we would need to call a dentist locally. When Casey woke up, he was in a lot of pain. He can’t eat or drink or breathe through his mouth without pain. So we called 1-800-DENTIST and they found a dentist about 15 miles away that would take our insurance and they could see Casey at 2:00! So we decided to head to California Adventure for a few hours and then we would go to the dentist while the other kids stay here and swim or read. We got to the park about 30 minutes before it opened and got in line for the brand new “Toy Story Midway Mania” ride. We hung out and walked to the ride when the park opened. We waited about 5 minutes and were on the ride! It was a really fun ride, everyone enjoyed it. Andrew got the highest score and Casey was in 2nd. Sarah and I were almost tied (I beat her by a mere 1100 points) and Emily was a little behind us. It was a fun ride/game!

Then we did California Screaming with about a 5 minute wait and then Tower of Terror with a 3 minute wait. The park is so empty and very enjoyable. The girls did TOT again and Andrew, Casey and I went to do the Monsters Inc. ride. It is a cute ride!

We met up with the girls and watched a fun singing group for a few minutes. Then a Little Green Army man (character from Toy Story) decided to join with the singing group and danced with some of the park visitors, we really had fun with that! That was a nice surprise!

Casey was in a lot of pain and wanted to go back to the hotel and Andrew agreed to go with him, so Emily, Sarah and I went to ride Soaring over California and Grizzly River Rapids. Then we went to the hotel and ate a little and off to the dentist we went!

The dentist was in Anaheim Hills (apparently a very affluent area) and a $45 cab ride! The office was very clean and modern. They had a soothing fountain in the waiting area and flat screen tvs on the ceilings of the exam rooms. Casey was able to watch a movie while they worked on him! The dentist said the he would put a “bandaid” on the tooth…he couldn’t repair it because the nerves needed to heal. So Casey is stuck with a silly smile, but no more pain. Not too bad compared with a broken nose or something else I suppose. Finally the story came out about what happened…Casey had snapped Sarah’s straps and she went to silly slap him and he ducked. When he ducked, he had a “face” off with a pole and the pole won! Oh my…but what can you do.

As luck would have it, the cab driver said he was going to take his lunch break after he dropped us off and said he would wait for us. So I called him and he picked us up right as we were done with the appointment. That was very nice and very easy! I don’t usually carry a lot of cash on me when I am on vacation, so we had to count our change to pay him for the trip home…but we had enough and were able to give him a tip still. Whew!

Then we got back to the room and everyone was happy to chill until our dinner reservations. So, I finished unpacking and the kids showered and read books.

I am all caught up now. We are headed to dinner at Naples in Downtown Disney and then I think we are going to go to Disneyland Park for the evening!

Night all!

Reunited - Dad and Jessie's trip

So, group two is dad and Jessie... took flight from Milw to LA Thurs afternoon. Nana was a great help getting Jessie ready (while I finished up some work and packing) and then driving us to the airport... Built in lots of extra time because that southbound traffic can be a bear (PoohMom has a puzzled look on her face... "extra time? what's that?").

So, it's me, Jessie, my carry on, SLR carry on, digital vid camera carry on, Jessie's carry on (too heavy for her to carry, btw!), and THREE big suitcases... one big enough they even marked it "special handling"! How am I going to do this?!?!

The first part in Milw was the toughest... that 300 ft from the car to the ticket counter to the bag drop! It was so packed by the checkin kiosk, poor Jessie was all smooshed in. The bags were tippy and one bumped her on the elbow and she started to cry... all while I was trying to go back past all the people in line with all the bags! But, once I dropped them with the TSA it was smooth sailing... and that was the last she cried the entire trip!

The plane was packed and I winced as a mom and 9 mo. baby sat down next to us. BUT, it ended up being great... the baby was well behaved and loved Jessie so they played a lot. And they were German so we had stuff to chat about. Jessie basically talked the entire plane ride! No naps!

On the LA end, I was able to get a cart right away which made it pretty manageable. We had about a 30 min wait for the bus, then the 40 min or so to Disneyland and then we were reunited with the rest of the gang!

We headed to the opening of Disneyland to get on the Nemo ride right away... then I headed back here to the hotel to work for a few hours. Just a few more things to catch up on before I can "cut loose"!
