A Magical Vacation

Last week the kids and I went to Disneyland and had a wonderful time together. Once again Adam decided not to go so it was just me and the kids. We missed Adam, but it was kind of nice to have some special bonding time, just me and the kids.
We stayed at the Grand California Hotel. We love staying there because it is so close to the parks. 
Our first day there was Thursday. We went to Disneyland and it was a beautiful sunny day. We were able to ride all of the rides we wanted, most of them more than once. I think we rode space mountain three times that day! Some of our favorites were space mountain, Matterhorn, pirates of the Carribian, splash mountain, thunder mountain, star tours and the Indiana Jones ride. We felt so lucky because the lines were so short and often times we got to sit in the front seat of the ride! We ate lunch at the French market and had Pom Frites (delicious French fries with Parmesan cheese and garlic salt) and Monte Cristo sandwiches (a deep fried ham and cheese sandwich). The food was So good!


We enjoyed the parade and the fireworks that evening and went to bed early so we could rest up for day two!

On Friday we went to California adventures and we were the second group in line to ride the cars ride! It was so much fun! We rode that a few times, the went to our all time favorite ride, the tower of terror! The kids also love the California screamin' roller coaster. Once again we were able to ride everything we wanted more than once. For lunch that day we had Disneys famous corn dogs and they did not disappoint! We got soaked on the grizzly Rapids ride. Luckily our hotel was so close that we were able to go back to our room and change into dry clothes before heading back to the park.

On Saturday we went back to Disneyland. One funny thing that happened was when the lady who was checking bags (for park security) looked at Caleb and said "You are here with these Beautiful princesses. You must take care of these princesses, especially the Queen throughout your entire life. May the force be with you." Hahaha! We gave Caleb's hard time about that all day. We rode our favorite rides one more time and had a Dole whip at the enchanted Tiki room. We got to ride splash mountain twice In a row because there was no one in line. We didn't even have to get out of the log boat! Then, we went over to California adventures and rode some of our favorites over there before leaving the resort. 

We stayed Saturday night at the Daly's (who just moved to California last month). It was fun because it was their daughter Skylee's birthday and we got to celebrate with cake and ice cream with her. We went to church on Sunday morning at their ward building before driving home. We were home by Sunday evening.

We all had a magical time together and we are already thinking about our next trip! We can't wait to go back!
