First Trip To Disneyland Together

Our children alone take up a whole row in the tram from the parking lot to the park. When we were almost there I told Stephanie and Jude we were finished and it was time to go home now. They laughed and yelled "NO".

Our first ride was the Jungle Cruise:

Right now Jude is probably thinking~ "Is that tiger real?"
Waiting for a turn to ride Pirates~ Stephanie and Jude LOVED it! Me, Johnny, and Lovenie waited on the other side to see their reactions as they got off the ride. They were all smiles.
Waiting outside of the Tiki room. It is a place we like to go to eat lunch because it is cool inside, entertaining, and they allow food and drinks.

Waiting together for Mr. Toads wild ride
Brother and sister take a seat at Mickey's house
Outside of Brother Bear Park. You can't really see it in the picture but Jim, Stephanie, Jude, and Kyle all went on the Rapid River Ride (Okay, I always forget the names of rides and so I make up my own, but you get the idea... right?). The kids had a good hard laugh on the ride because they stayed pretty dry while Jim just got drenched all throughout the ride!

Parenting Tip~ If you want to leave Disneyland at a decent time without any complaints from the kids you should allow them to play in the water play areas right before sunset. They end up cold and wanting to go home!

Lovenie is just an absolute goofball and we were cracking up at her while playing in the water areas. She would put her face right in and just scream and then do it again and again. She also entertained us with little dances and lots of giggles. She is such a happy and silly little girl.

We return to see and do more on Sunday if all the kids have been good. We are excited to catch a couple shows and parades we did not get to see. So far 5 out of 6 of the kids have really been a great joy. One is giving us a hard time and really struggling so we ask that you would please continue to pray for this child and pray that the Mama does not have a nervous breakdown while waiting out the struggles!

Looks like y'all had a fab time. I saw the later post that things are going better with the one who had been giving so much trouble. What a praise for all of it.

I think you're at Dland now - hope you're having soooooooooooo much fun.
