Soladay Family Caliventure: Part 2

The next part of the S.F.C. (Soladay Family Caliventure....just sayin'), brings us to
Disney's California Adventure Park.
Blast. More for kids our boys' age.
Speaking of age appropriate, do you know that not one of our boys had
ANY interest in riding ANY of the rides in Fantasyland at Disneyland!? What? No Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, no Peter Pan's Flight, No Dumbo, No Tea Cups?
That's just wrong.
Ryan did put his foot down and make the boys ride It's a Small World. It's epic. It's iconic. It's actually illegal to leave the park without riding it. That's what we told them.
That ride IS Disney.
A must do.
Okay...off my soapbox.

Hold on for picture
OVERLOAD, my friends!!!

We're here!

Just like yesterday...it's time to hit some rides!

The ferris wheel!
Some of the baskets were stationary while others swung back and forth...of course the boys wanted the swinging baskets. Remember the video?
Have you ever been catapulted 180 feet in the air? Fun.
Sweet little boys...
Awwww...the teenager...I wish I could freeze this smile and see it all day everyday.
The Grizzly River Run.
Wet. Very wet.
Kids LOVE to get wet!
Picture breaks!

Have I mentioned how much I love this little guy!?
The boys!
Brothers...
Must...
climb...
to.the.top!
Our family...
 
Good times!

After an awesome day, we decided to head out of the park for a family dinner.
Can you figure out where...I'll give you a few clues:

Why the sad face, Carter?
 Much better!
Bubba Gump's!
We had a lot of fun here! The food was yummy, and once a few tired boys were done pouting over this and that, the laughter was flowing!
Best line from Forrest Gump!
It was funny because just a few nights after eating here, the movie randomly came on television at the resort in San Diego, and Ryan and I watched it while the boys slept.
Such a sweet movie.
Our table number. =)
Ryan and Trysten's lucky number!

Another fabulous day in California!
I heart this family...

I liked CA Adventures more than the Magic Kingdom when we were out there.
Did you notice they had a Napa Valley section ;)
Soaring is the best ride too..
I'm surprised the boys pouted over Bubba Gumps? I guess they're too young.
We took my nephew when he was 13(he's 21 now) there and he loved it!

Cute, sweet boys. Even "the teenager". :)

They weren't pouting over going to Bubba Gump's. In fact, they begged us to go back the next night! Two of the boys were pouting because they had been called out for running aroung like lunatics prior to entering the restaurant!

I love Mr. Toad's, too.

Love Disney! Love Cali!!!!!!

This makes me want to go back to Dinsey so bad!! I can't wait till Addie (and our future munchkin(s) will be old enough to take them! IT truly is the best place on Earth! Thanks for sharing your memories! I love seeing all of the pictures. :-)
