I think nighttime pictures of the Tea Cups at Disneyland just look beautiful. I love the lanterns! That is too funny about the Tea Cups! Poor Zoe! She's such a sweet baby, trying to protect her Mama. She reminds me of Reid - tender hearted.

I'm super excited to hear about Carsland!!
Steve has a tendency to not feel well. He does have an auto immune disorder..and so it makes it hard. We come across a small bug that makes the rest of us feel just a tad under the weather...and his is down for weeks.

We did have a great night and riding in the new seats helped with that for sure!

Zoe is kind, but lately she has been a bit moody. I really hope we are not heading into those prepubescent mood swing years.

I will try and get pictures for the next day edited and uploaded today and then maybe in the next day or so I will get the carsland update done.

What a fun evening in the parks. That Alice in Wonderland ride looks so cool and so does the Matterhorn. Great updates!
That guacamole was the absolute best I have had in my entire life... and believe me... I eat guacamole a lot!

Alice is super cool.. but it is a bit more scary as far as dark rides go. I love that there are parts outside and parts inside. Plus..those cars are super cute.

Matterhorn was my first disney "thrill" ride. I like the new seats... it was far more enjoyable that way. It is also cool that you have two sleds going at the same time so it is like you are racing down the mountain. Very fun.

an update.

Poor Zoe and mean EVIL Zach for the tea cup ride.

That's my wifes, my sons and my favorite ride; but I got to say, I like to spin the you know what out of that poor cup and that leaves all three of us feeling very .

Great update, Ann. That's funny that BTRR never had a lilne as popular as it is in the World.

You guys got a lot accomplished.

Poor Zoe...she really thought you were not well. What a sweet, sweet child.

Yes, mean evil Zach. We all did survive though.

I felt bad for Zoe. She wasn't particularly happy with her brothers after that which is partially why we separated after that.

I am not sure why BTMRR had so little a line. It was great though!!!

Thanks for mentioning it, Ashley! I am still pretty excited to have finished it! I am thinking I really should do another (without the ankle injury) and get a better time to submit.

That is so cool, isn't it? I think that was my one single largest disappointment in WDW... IASW. It looked more like it was in a strip mall rather than the big beautiful elaborate structure that it is in DL.

i think that's alot of the problem with fanatsyland at WDW compared to DL's. Maybe when they redo peater pan they will add do something to the facade like they did with Pooh.

Great updates! Too cute of Zoe on the tea cups, and how evil of Zach, lol. I vaguely remember riding the matterhorn. The new seating looks much better though.

The new seating is MUCH better. I really like that ride. I wish it were in WDW.

As I mentioned...maybe...hopefully... a carsland update today.

Zombie 5k sounds fun!! I looked at one over here that if you played the role of zombie...registration was free AND they did your makeup. How fun... but... I am a bit old to do this all by myself...and have no one to do it with me.
