What a great start. Aren't kids funny? No sleeping on the way down, and wanting to eat then. I'll never understand being able to eat in the dark early morning.

I love Cafe Orleans and Mimi's and Buca, so I'd say your food choices for the first day get an A+.

LOL I realized looking back at our receipts that we basically ate our way thru Disneyland, it was RIDICULOUS! you'll see, LOL


And a big thank you to everyone for their supporting comments, really makes me feel good, I was so worried that no one would read it and that my TR would just go to the bottom of the page, thanks to everyone for keeping it up towards the top! I feel honored!!

Day 2

Day two started pretty much the same as day one, breakfast at Mimis at 7, back to the hotel to drop off the van and wait for ART. Today would be our first day at California Adventure. We were worried about DS15 riding California Screaming because he has always been cautious about riding roller coasters any bigger than the ones found at DL. But he was a super trooper and loved it and it became his new favorite.


We did Toy Story next, which is our favorite ride in C.A. I'm pretty sure DH got the highest score but I wasnt far behind. I really wanted to do this again but everytime we would walk by the line was sooooo long, even though everything else was walk on.


DH is originally from Alaska, he only moved here to the states about 4 years ago, so when he heard a friend of his from his home state was down visiting DL he go ahold of him thru facebook and we met up with him and his wife and his DD. Our DD's hit it off immediately and wanted to go on Jumpin Jellyfish together while DH and his friend caught up on whats going on in Alaska. They got the back side of the Jellyfish so we didnt get a great picture, just the back of their heads. LOL


After this ride we headed over to Whitewater Snacks for some yummy nachos. DS12 and I got beef and DH and BFF got chicken. DS15 got an egg salad sandwich and DD8 got a pb&j uncrustable meal. The nachos were delicious and now I understand why they are a hit on the Dis boards!



After DH and I took both the girls to the bugs life area and let them ride the little kid rides while DS15, DS12, BFF and visiting Alaskan friends went on Calif.Screaming. The girls acted like they had known each other for YEARS and were best friends They had a great time riding Heimlichs Chew Chew Train.


They also liked Fliks Fun Fliers


After we finished up there we headed back to Calif Screaming to see the group on the tail end of Calif Screaming waiting to launch, we were able to get a pic before they took off.


We said our good-byes to DH's AK friends and headed off to do Tower of Terror. I stayed off this ride because I was already feeling a little queasy (yeah I know, Im a wimp ) and went around back and waited for their pics to come up on the screen.


I guess we hadnt said good bye to the AK friends because I just noticed in this pic that they are the family in the back left row behind my family :-)
Im pretty sure we said goodbye after this?!?!
We headed over to soaring and got to take this fun pic with Mater and Lightning McQueen.


Also had this pic taken by BFF of our family. I always strive to get the perfect family pic to use on our Christmas cards so we are always taking pics like this. I got one over in Pooh corner that I think we are going to use but if we dont then I MIGHT use this one, still not sure. Im not all that fond of the fact that the boys have their sunglasses on?!?!?


I'm not 100% sure where we went or what we did after this, but I do know that there are no more pics between this and when we went out for dinner that night. LOL We headed back to the hotel and grabbed the van and headed to Red Robin (yummmmmm) and we all ordered the Prime Chophouse Burger (their special of the week, it was $5.99 for the burger and all you can eat fries...where else can you get a deal like that?!?!?)


DS15 had the Monster Burger which he demolished in about 8 bites. My BFF and I spoiled ourselves with margaritas, mine was mango and hers was strawberry.


This made my ears warm <3

After we got back to the hotel DH took the kids to the hot tub and swimming while BFF and I stayed in the hotel room and checked email and updated facebook and all that fun stuff.
This marks the end of our second day at Disneyland/California Adventure. Day 3 coming soon! stay tuned! Thanks everyone!
