I was able to get the pictures off of Cody’s camera and he took some additional photos from our first day. While Disney has Photopass photographers we haven’t had great luck with them. The one time we bought the CD of pictures a good number of them were out of focus. It’s easy enough to hand our camera to the photographer for some family shots.
We of course posed some shots of the boys in front of the castle, love the Halloweentime decorations and the fall colors.
While we were taking this picture a couple came up to me and asked if they boys were triplets, when I said yes. They told me they had triplet boys that were 2 and a half as well. Of course I asked if they brought them to Disneyland, they laughed and no they left them at home.
Nicholas doesn’t look thrilled for the first half of this day due to a reaction to sunscreen (sigh) he broke out in hives and had running eyes and nose for quite a while. Despite looking a little miserable he didn’t act unhappy. Since it has been over a week since we returned I’m so happy I have pictures to help me remember what we did. We rode many rides multiple times. The boys were big fans of the ‘honey train’ and anything thing that spun. The honey train is the Winnie the Pooh ride.
Normally we try to limit the amount of sugar and junk food the boys eat, as we were on vacation that went out the window. On just the first day they shared a churro and a giant cookie with Cody.
Disneyland close early on Monday night so we had planned on ending our night at Disney’s California Adventure (DCA). On the way out of the park we had a chance to meet Mickey Mouse. Nicholas was by far the most into Mickey and Parker the least. Last year they were terrified of the characters, so I was just happy no one was crying.
We also stopped to meet Pluto, it didn’t go as well as Mickey.
Andrew was afraid, Parker was okay and Nicholas was undecided.
Since we didn’t get to DCA until it was getting dark we planned on just visiting Disney Animation. The boys enjoyed all of the screens last year and were just as enthralled this year. We spent time watching the screens and looking at the Toy Story zoetrope while waiting for Turtle Talk with Crush.
I was really hoping that the boys were not be afraid of Crush and was very happy to see how much they loved the show.
It was hilarious watching the boys reactions to Crush. They were clapping and giggling along with everyone else. At one point Crush swam at the screen and crashed into the ‘glass’ Nicholas looked at me and whispered “That’s really fast.” I was laughing so hard because it was just so matter of fact and the first time he’d every said that to us.
It was dark and dinner time when we made it out of the park. We had a quick meal at Millies before going back to the room for some much needed sleep.
