Disneyland 2010

Well we made our annual trip to Disneyland. We drove up Wednesday and met Grandma and the Cory Randalls at a hotel right down the street. Sara drove down from Utah to join in the fun as well. We went to Downtown Disney the night before to hang out and have dinner. While we were walking around I saw a guy that looked like Ken Jeong who plays Señor Chang on Community he has also been some other movies, we think he is hilarious. Well I watched him walk past me and I told Jesús who I thought it was and he said he was pretty sure it was him. We followed him to the sunglasses stand and Jesús got a picture with him. He is wearing a Duke hat because thats where he went to school to become a doctor, yep he is a funny doctor.Elena was not feeling well the last part of the trip, it was almost like she needed to go to the bathroom. She was uncomfortable for the rest of the night and barely ate a thing. So the next morning she wasn't feeling well and her stomach was as hard as a rock. So she was very whiny and uncomfortable. But here they are getting ready to go into the park.
We went to California Adventures first since we hadn't been there before. We headed to the bugs life area so the kids could get on some rides. She did smile a little on the little rides and say wee a couple times. Patrick was in heaven, it wasnt busy and we walked onto every ride. He was having the greatest time.

We went on the Heimlich train a couple times, once by ourselves and once with the rest of the group. It was slow but fun for the kids.

We took the kids to the bugs life 3D movie and it scared the C-R-A-P out of them. Then we walked around to find everyone else. We got around to Soaring over California and we really wanted to ride but Patrick was too short. Mom and Sara took our kids and Hannah and we went on it with Cory, Stephanie and Caleb. It was so amazing that I sort of cried.
When we got off the ride Elena was so uncomfortable and just whined and wanted to be held. We decided to have lunch right outside of Soaring over California and across the way was Mater and Lightening McQueen. I took Elena and decided to let her walk for a while to see if that would help. Elena and Patrick and I walked over to a store across the way and looked at some toys. Elena looked as if she was trying to go and seemed to be in some pain. I kept her walking and finally it smelled like she went. So we went over to the food area to grab a diaper and I noticed that there was.....well, poop on the ground. It was a blow out. The biggest blowout of all time. On my shirt, in her sandals. It was pretty awful. I had to run her over the the bathroom and strip her down and wipe her down and rinse out her clothes and then she was finally feeling better and she had a couple french fries and crashed. It made her so tired that she was asleep for a while.
I definitely needed a picture under the Bakers field bakery sign.
We did a little shopping and Patrick got a very cool new sword. Then we headed out of California Adventures and took some pictures by the big letters.

Right as we were walking into Disneyland Mickey Mouse was standing right there and Patrick wanted to say Hi. Mickey seemed in a hurry and was practically running kids over to get where he needed to be.

We went and rode the Buzz Lightyear ride and then headed to Toon Town. Elena woke up and was feeling better so we checked out Mickey's house and Donalds house.

Playing Mickey's piano

Patrick and I went to take a look around while Daddy and Elena went to check out the toon cars.
He jumped in the fire truck
Then went to jail
We tried to lift this weight so hard that........
He slipped right under it
Then we headed over to the Tikki room and on the way Elena tried climbing out of the stroller and we didn't even see her but I heard her yelp and Jesús couldnt figure out why the stroller had stopped rolling, it was because Elena was under the wheel. She just got a little scratch on her back. It probably wasnt the happiest place on earth for her that day. She did love the Tikki room with all the singing birds. Jesús stood in line to get a pineapple float to take in with us but when we went into the room to save him seat they closed the doors, we were worried that they wouldnt let him in but he talked them into letting him in. Then we headed over to the Jungle cruise which the kids liked.
Mom and Sara went to ride Indiana Jones and we took the kids up into the Tarzan tree house. I had never been up there but it was kinda dumb.
Afterwards we over and rode Pirates of the Caribbean which terrified the kids. Then we waited for Mom and Sara to ride it. Then we walked over to Splash Mountain so Stephanie and I could ride it. Two years ago we were both pregnant and we waited out side the ride while Jesús and Cory rode it. This year was our turn. But Ben and Janae showed up and they stayed with Mom and Sara and our kids and Hannah and once again it was Jesús and I and Cory, Stephanie and Caleb. Caleb was so brave and he was laughing after the drop. Patrick probably would have been screaming bloody murder. After Splash mountain we headed over to the Finding Nemo. It was a 30 minute wait but I had promised Patrick we would ride it. It was fun so see the kids looking at the fish in the little windows. After that the park was closing so we headed to Main street to get Elena a souvenir. It wasnt the best trip but it had its fun parts. I hope we go again next year, things will go better next time.

I love Disneyland and California Adventures. Fun happy memories!!! The Bugs life show was great. Scared us all too!

Next time you're at CA Adventure you should go on Tower of Terror.

Each year as your kids get older, theme parks will get easier and way more fun!
