We spent the morning at California Adventure where Brigham's favorite activity was the splash pad in Bug's Land.
We visited Cars Land and it was so much fun! It looked like it was straight out of the movie.
Radiator Springs Racers was awesome.
Some of the boys spent the afternoon at the USC/Oregon football game while the rest of us enjoyed some time at Disneyland. We managed to ride a few of the classics, eat corndogs, and see Fantasmic before the park closed.
We spent the next two days running around California Adventure and Disneyland.
We saved Fantasyland to do during Magic Morning Hours on our last day there. Luckily we were able to get in most of the rides before they closed it for the rest of the day while they were filming a movie there. Tom Hanks is playing Walt Disney in a movie called "Saving Mr. Banks" and they were filming at Disneyland that day.
I believe Brigham's favorite parts of the trip were: Jake, cuddling with grandma at night, the splash pad, Toy Story, Dumbo, Finding Nemo, Winnie-the-Pooh, the giant plastic watermelon outside of Goofy's house in Toontown, the Disney Junior show, glow sticks, the train (especially the part with the dinosaurs), and the Pixar Parade.
Apparently his favorites did not include posing for a picture by our family's brick. But Lexi seemed to enjoy the chance she had to get out of the stroller and snack on some leaves.
A few of my favorites from the trip were seeing Cars Land, riding the swings in a double swing, Fantasmic, watching Brigham dance to the Disney Junior show, hearing newsies sing Seize the Day with Mickey Mouse on main street in California Adventure, riding space mountain with Johnny, splash mountain, the Monte Cristo and garlic parmesan fries in New Orleans Square, the Ghiradelli chocolate samples, and eating the chocolate bread pudding suffle at a late night dinner in Downtown Disney. Of course none of these things would have been much fun without my family and travel companions. I sure do love all of them.
Did I mention how excited we were to have Johnny with us? He has missed out on the last few trips, and boy did we miss him. I forgot how much fun California Screamin' and Space Mountain can be with my baby brother. He can scream like crazy and makes the rides so much more fun.
All in all, another great trip to Disneyland. The kids were awesome, the company was great, and the park was a blast.
