Disneyland with Friends

We met some friends at Disneyland today, Carolyn and her little boy Matthew. We've known each other for years and years and got to know each other better when our oldest kids, both girls, were born. Carolyn also worked at the hospital where I had Rachel, and when she learned of the circumstances of Rachel's delivery - emergency c-section with Rachel being born with a birth defect, she volunteered to come to work the next day and was my personal nurse. Talk about royal treatment.

Our intentions were to get on the newly opened Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. However, when at 9:10, only an hour after the park opened, and the line was over 3 hours. We skipped it. Rachel kept asking to go on Nemo, and we will again, someday, in a few months or years when this craziness dies down. We did a few things in Disneyland, but truth be told, it was extremely busy and crowded and people everywhere that we went over to California Adventure. We had lunch and the kids enjoyed playing. We spent some time in Bugs Land, where Rachel got to ride a new ride she is now tall enough for...The Tuck and Roll Bumper Cars! She had fun and it's now another ride that our entire family can go on at the same time. We ended our day with the kids playing in the leaky faucet in Bugs Land. It was a hot day and the water was refreshing. Rachel got soaked!
