Just after getting into the park on day1
Jackson got chosen for Jedi Training!! I was jumping up and down so the master jedi would hopefully pick him, it worked luckily! He got to fight Vader! Jack with his certificate
Lucky for us California adventure does not open until 10am so we got a little rest before round 2. This day was so sunny and warm, I was in heaven!
Jackson really enjoying his ice cream bar!
Wednesday-All our favorites and anything we missed
So we got there after a great parking fiasco! We got our fastpasses for Indiana Jones so that we could ride it later, or so we thought! When we went to ride it we got on the ride and then it broke down , this was so frustrating especially for Jack who was ready to drive the Jeep. Oh well! We tooka break and went back to the hotel for dinner and then went back to the park for the fireworks! By this time I think that we were all exhausted but we went anyway knowing it was our last hurrah! WE did not get back to the hotel until about 11:15pm. Luckily we planned on sleeping in and not checking out until the last minute.
Thursday we just recuperated, we had to move hotels and we did a little shopping in downtown Disney. The kids finally got to swim in the pool and they loved it. I loved sitting in the sun by the pool and reading a magazine while chatting with my Mom.
Friday was a sad day as we started our trek home. It is never very fun to drive home from vacation especially whe you have to get through LA traffic! We drove to Redding, CA which was really pretty town.
Saturday brought more driving and it was sad to say goodbye to the sun! As we approached Eugene, OR the rain started. I turned to Mike and told him that we need to move.
It was a very funfilled and exhausting trip! I don't think that we could do Disney every year but maybe every 2 or so. I think maybe next year we will venture as a family to Hawaii!
Thanks to Alex and Ellen, Mike and I get a little R&R this weekend as they are taking our kids while we go see Wicked and stay downtown. I will have to post about that later, I am very excited I have been wanting to see it for a long time!
