Day 1--Disneyland!!!

We got up early enough and had our "Continental Breakfast" which was halfway decent as far as those things go...brushed our teeth, got in the Nevada car, and sped down to Disneyland. We were so excited to show Grandma everything...

(Most photos from Miles, unless he is in them)

Weather was perfect, not hot, sunny and cloudy, Spring is well underway, here.

We were greeted by the Disneyland Marching Band...
Lines were not long at all, we went right in. (Our cashier grew up in Seattle and went to Middle School where Miles will go next year, go figure)
The first thing we had to do was take Caroline on Indiana Jones, she was a millimeter too short last time we were here, and never believed Miles when he said it wasn't all that great--too bumpy. Miles and Grandma opted for the Jungle Cruise next door.
It never changes...

They still shoot the hippo at the end...and tell corny jokes.

We then tortured Grandma, and took her on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. She laughed and yelled the whole time and said she had now experienced enough roller coaster to last the rest of her life. She did manage to take photos while on it, though, I cannot figure out how:

We really wanted to take Grandma on Storybook Land boats. It is so cute and sweet and the landscaping is really nice. You still have to enter through the mouth of the whale.

..nice picture of the teeth!
Cute little houses...they have been trimming all these bonsai since the 50s.
Miles had us take his camera on Autotopia....We tried to get a photo of ourselves. I let Caroline drive. I hope she gets better at steering by the time she is 16.
There we all are, waiting in the very short line. (All lines were totally manageable..)

Miles likes to take photos of the trees.
Nice shot of the castle...
We caught a parade on our first day. We knew Grandma would love it. This is Alice's table.
Mickey and Minnie:
Caroline was disappointed that Ariel wasn't on her float, she must have phoned in sick.

Miles set his camera to "fireworks", and took a bunch of photos--they turned out pretty awesome!! But not like fireworks.
Grandma actually got this great shot of the day:
