Disneyland with Daddy

Theresa was busy today, but there's no reason why I can't take the kids to Disneyland solo. T packed everyone a snack bag, we loaded in the car, drove to Disneyland, waited 15 minutes to park, and then walked through Downtown Disney to get to the park. First up is California Adventure.
Alli picked out our hats for today. I've got a great Jafar hat. I was surprised how much positive attention it got today. Lots of people loving the hat. And when people saw that Ian's hat was the Genie, he got a lot of positive comments too. I had no Jasmine hats, Alli settled for a princess hat. In this case Princess Minnie.

Forty two inches! It wasn't even a year ago that he hit the 40" line. Now he's up to the next big level for Disney rides!
According to the Disneyland website, there are 5 brand new things he can do now that he's topped that mark.

  • Goofy's Sky School
  • Grizzly River Run
  • Redwood Creek Zip Line
  • Redwood Creek Rock Wall
  • Matterhorn

Pixar Fest - Celebrating Nemo and Dory

Pixar Fest is in full swing and the kids are certainly getting into it. Last week when we visited, they wanted caramel apples from Marceline's Confectionary. I promised we'd get one our next visit. This morning Ian reminded me that we were getting caramel apples today from the parks. Good memory buddy.

Because of the great time we had snorkeling at Makena Beach yesterday, we were able to convince the rest of the family to head out there with us today.

Hawaii 2018 - Day 6

Day 6 and we're changing it up a little bit. The girls really wanted to hit a flea market while they were on the island. The kids were happy to go along for the snacks. Shaved ice, of course.
