Thursday was a terrific day. Lyn and I took Haley and Lexi to Disneyland and we all had a picture-perfect morning together. The weather was great--warm and sunny and "fresh." The park was crowded, but manageable. We ran into Pluto and Chip by the Alice in Wonderland ride. Haley got to ride the Matterhorn and LOVED the "scary bear that roared." Lexi rode her first roller coaster ever. AND we got by spending under $5. Unheard of! Oh yeah--we got free parking even! I was going to park at Downtown Disney like we always do, but we thought it would be good to drop off Lyn and the girls at the Timon parking lot at the front of the park. We got our little yellow drop-off slip for the windshield, but all the attendants disregarded it and directed us to a parking space. I wasn't about to slow down the whole process by making a scene, so we parked where we were told!
I can't wait until miss Emily is old enough to join her cousins for a day with Mickey, Donald, and the grandfolks!
Haley wanted to push the stroller. So we made
our way to the gate area. Mamaw Lyn led the way!
We went straight to the Matterhorn. Haley had been talking about it all morning. She and Lyn stayed in line there and Lexi and I went to Alice in Wonderland. Lyn and Haley got through the Matterhorn in time to join Lexi and me in the Alice line (which moves mega-slow)!
After Alice we ran into Pluto. Haley never knew a "character" she didn't love. Lexi, is more skeptical.
Chip was just a short distance away from Pluto. We had to visit him too.
Lexi moved in closer to Chip than with Pluto, but when his hand
touched her shoulder, she wanted him to remove it a.s.a.p.
Next stop ToonTown and the little play area there.
This is the girls in the crawl-in pumpkin.
This was so fun. Lexi never really knew what hit her.
This was her first-ever roller coaster. She really enjoyed
it--was ready to ride again, but we didn't have time. :(
