Disneyland trip

Here are some pictures from our impulse trip to Disneyland.
Tradition has it that the Peter Pan ride is always first. Here's Linda and Paul, this picture is so awkward we had to put it up.

This year Emily was finally tall enough to go on just about every ride...including the fast ones like thunder mountain.

If you couldn't tell that shadow is Emily, and everyone is looking back to see her reaction as the ride is about to start.
Check out these videos of the ride...they aren't that good but you can see Emily's different reactions, and everyone else's reactions as they watch her. At the end of the ride she stated, very firmly, "We are not doing that again"

Here's a random video of us on the teacups. Emily asked me to go on them with her, I was stoked. When I asked her if she wanted to spin really fast or just kind of fast she said, "um...just kind of fast."

Emily was a great driver. See for yourself.

This one is super shaky...but it's because Emily kept hitting the track.

If Emily looks worried it's because we just got off Thunder Mountain and now we're about to get on Splash Mountain.

This is us in the process of going down the big drop.

So Tower of Terror got it's name for a good reason. We felt terrorized after all the screamers on the ride. (See video)

Last year when we did this ride Hillary won, but this year I came out victorious. But Hillary did get 50% accuracy and mine was only 23% Guess that means I'm just super fast! I'm pretty sure everyone else beat both of us though...what was Paul's score? haha.

Paul was reunited with his people.

This picture is for Emily. I spotted Cinderella across the water.

If you can't tell, we were going for animals. Guess what each person is.
This was the slowest ride we went on all day.
I think Dallin and I win the award for best smile.

This is surprisingly scary.
This was the last ride we did at California Adventure before it closed. We were pretty tired by then and kept joking about getting left on this ride...and then we almost did. The guy in charge of letting us out of our cage was on the phone and almost missed us. Luckily, another worker, working the other side heard us laughing and got us out.

Approximately 10:00 pm, we've been at Disneyland now for 15 hours, finally getting to go on Space Mountain...
Dallin still showing no sign of being tired.

And there you have it. After this we concluded our day with a nap on Pirates of the Caribbean as we waited for Indiana Jones to open back up. We got on the Indiana Jones ride at 11:52, then headed toward the shops. By the time we ended up with everyone back at the van it was about 12:45 am, then Jory drove us all back to Las Vegas. Thanks for driving Jory! We could NOT stay awake.
