So I mentioned that we were in California but now we're back and that might have made you think the trip was uneventful. I assure you, it was not!
I updated our first day in San Clemente, but failed to tell you about everything after that. Things like playing at the beach that I thought was just a hair to cool to be perfect, but my kids thought was fantastic.
|Wyatt would've stayed there for days, right at the edge of the water.|
|This is Natalie, being girly and afraid of the seaweed Jeff wants her to touch.|
|Joel, Wyatt & Kyle hanging out watching the seals.|
|Kyle, really proud of his purchased fish. Note Wyatt's hand - he|
wanted in on the feeding action.
|Waiting with Aunt Aimee and Daddy to see|
the sea lion show (which was extra entertaining due to a
rogue sea lion who was behaving like a two-year old human).
|One tired girl on our way to see Shamu's evening show.|
If you ask Natalie about it, she'll tell you, "I scream Goofy!" because she let loose a blood-curdling scream when he approached her stroller. Like the good-natured Goofy he is, he just jumped back, gave me and Wyatt high fives and went on about his merry day. She might also tell you about her new hot pink Mickey Crocs, which we acquired after she threw a shoe somewhere in Tomorrowland. A one-shoed child at Disney isn't ideal! We backtracked (twice) to look for it then went to the front of the park to check with lost and found and it wasn't anywhere to be seen. Thankfully Disney is prepared for anything and the Crocs were available in a store on Main Street. She loves them but please imagine our delight when we returned to Tomorrowland thirty minutes later to ride Autopia and found her "lost" shoe laying on a wall by all the stroller parking. Oh well!
|waiting for Dumbo, the first ride of the day|
|proof we were all there together - getting on the Small World ride.|
|Me and my passenger on Autopia.|
|TEACUPS! Jeff (the pilot) wasn't thrilled about all the spinning|
but the kids and I loved it :)
|See? They really did love it.|
|the carousel with our post-dinner energy|
|my superstars after riding the Matterhorn together!|
|Astroblaster, the last ride of the day. It was|
a perfect ending to a beautiful day as we were high enough to
see all the lights of the park from above.
|this was taken approximately three minutes after the car started moving.|
|Wyatt holding on during the high speed portion of our ride.|
