Rachel and Mommy go to Disneyland
Today was our first official Rachel and Mommy trip to Disneyland for the new school year. With the new school hours that Hannah has, I had to figure out what the new 'need to be in route home' time was. LOL. You wouldn't think that with school getting out 20 minutes earlier would make a difference, but it does. We arrived shortly after 9:00 and were in route towards home, or shall I say school, by 12:50. We made it to school with plenty of time to spare, so next time we can maybe leave Disneyland just a few minutes later. Upon arriving, the line was already over 2 hours long for the Nemo Submarines, we passed that one up. We hit a couple of Rachel's favorite rides - the Merry Go Round and the Teacups. Did some walking around and window shopping and then went over to California Adventure. Stopping into the bakery for a mid morning snack to discover they had Nemo Cupcakes!!! Good thing Rachel ate all her breakfast and could have one! The Monsters Inc ride has become one of Rachel's favorite rides. She asks to go on it everytime we are here. Last week, she was so cute when she said to me "Mike and Sully? You take me?" It was so cute, but it just wasn't possible to go that day. But we did go on it today, she was so excited to see Boo's Door. The parks were busy. I can't wait until Fall when traditional school kids go back to school, and people on vacation go home, and the parks become a little less crowded...and cooler! LOL. It's been a while since we've gone just the two of us. We had a good time and a lot of fun. And of course, always looking forward to our next trip.
