California Adventure

This whole trip could be called "Our California Adventure" but that's not what I'm talking about.  We went to the park called California Adventure today.  The first thing we did was find Lightning McQueen and Mater.  The boys were pretty excited about this!
Then, Jaden and I rode "Soarin' Over California" because Jaxon was too short to ride it.  After Jaden and I finished, Jason and Jaden went back on it so Jason could ride it.  Jaxon and I went to find "A Bug's Land" and rode on Heimlich's chew-chew-train.  Then we went back to get Jason and Jaden and headed back to "A Bug's Land" with them to ride all the rides there.  We went to see the 3-D "It's Tough to Be a Bug" movie and got to wear these cool bug 3-D glasses.  I think the look on Jaxon's face is so funny here.  I'm not sure why he's looking that way, except that he was super tired all day long from such a long day yesterday.

Jaden wanted to take a picture of Jason and I here where this beautiful waterfall was.
Besides the fun rides that we rode today, I would say the highlight of the boys day was seeing the "Playhouse Disney Live on Stage" show and some great character sitings.

This is the Playhouse Disney show which they both loved.  I'm guessing we'll be going back to see it.

Then, we found quite a few characters.  Among them was Handy Manny:

Then we found Sully from Monsters, Inc.  Jaden was trying to scare him here:

Next we found Pluto.  Jaxon was really funny today.  He would go up to the characters and get their autograph, but he wouldn't get his picture made.  This was the only way he would do it, is if his Daddy would hold him.

We ended the day at the park with a Pixar parade.  The boys were really excited to see all the characters from some of their favorite movies.
After the parade, we grabbed something for supper and headed back to the room early -- MUCH earlier than last night.  Both boys were asleep within about 5 minutes of laying down.  Dad is now asleep as I type this.  And I'm not too far behind.  Goodnight!
