Disney Ditch Day

Cameron went camping and fishing with his Dad and Ashling and I kept Ali and Annika with me.  We had a lot of fun while they were gone.  On Sunday we had a girlfriend and her boys over for dinner along with Cameron's mom.  We enjoyed some good  girl talk and let the kids show us all the things they could do.  

On Monday I took Ali out of school and we went to Disneyland.  We got there when it opened and were able to meet Alice in Wonderland.  

 Our first ride was the tea cups.  Ali wanted to spin faster than I could.  I was going to let Annika go with them but they wouldn't let Annika ride with just Ali so we ended up in another tea cup that I did not spin.  Ali rode with this girl who was waiting in line and also wanted to spin really fast.

 I bought Annika some Mickey ears.  They were so cute I just couldn't resist.
 We also got to meet Rapunzel.  It was so much fun to say hi to her and see Annika's reaction to seeing her favorite princess.  She loved it.

 We rode on both Mr. Toad's wild ride and Peter Pan which usually have lines that are much too long for us to be willing to wait for them.
 Annika's favorite ride is still the Merry go round .  She loves this ride no matter how many times she rides on it.

We also we over to California Adventure and rode on Soaring over California, the silly symphony swings, the other merry go round and spent some time learning to draw Phineas and Pherb.  We also talked to Crush the turtle and had our voice stolen by ursela.  We finished the day off by watching Alladin the musical.  We loved the whole day and ate Dinner at Chili's on the way home.  It was fun to be able to spoil a couple of my kids and enjoy a fun day with them.
