Day 3--California Adventure!

(Sorry I've gotten behind)

The next day was for California Adventure!! We knew mom would love it here, it is so beautiful!! Here we are in the O, out in front.
This fountain is a beautiful tile mosaic, and the water comes over it like waves. I just love it, it is mesmerizing.....

On the Hollywood Backlot.


Fabulous landscaping!




Ferris Wheel and Roller Coaster in the background there. We met up with Caroline's friend Katie, and we all went on the Roller coaster THREE times!! The first time Miles went, and that was enough, the second and third time, we convinced Katie's mom to go too!!
Mom finally got her ride on a merry-go-round, albeit on a whale.
The 3-D bug movie, it kind of freaked Caroline out. At a certain point, I think Disney could tone down the scary sometimes.
Photo of giant clover Miles took from a ride!
I dared the kids to run through this fountain, as a joke, and then they ended up getting soaked, oops. Luckily it was pretty warm by then.
We caught the Aladdin show...
Dragged Grandma through the netting in Grizzley Run,
...where the kids played for a while, it is a fun little place....

Caroline really wanted her picture in the giant C, but there were people hanging all over it in the morning, so we got one on the way out.Then we swung by the lego store in Downtown Disney, where Grandma cracked the kids up, making her own Hollywood Tower of Terror out of Duplos. We had dinner at Beppo, and THAT was a full fun day!

Wow! I haven't been over to your blog for way too long.

You probably didn't know this, but I am a sucker for Disneyland. Isn't it weird how one can hate the Disney corporation but still go all apey for Disneyland?

Also, I proposed to Rachel during the fireworks show right after Tink flies out and says, "...all you have to do is make a wish."

Tell Caroline that I really wanted to get my picture taken in the 'E' in California.

Also, are guys allowed to have super crafter aliases? I'm toying with "Sir Startsalot"
