Familee Disneyland Day

My Dad had a work retreat at Disneyland. He got to spend the day in team building meetings while the Familee (Family+Lee=Familee) went to Disneyland. I decided to join them with Hannah and Gavin. The whole Disneyland experience is much more pleasant with my new stroller (see "Jones Baby #3" blog).
The best part of the day was going on the Indiana Jones ride. My little sister, Julianna (8 years old) was just dying to go on that ride since their last trip when she was too short. She got the lucky driver's seat in the jeep. My sister, Kairistiona (16 years old)and I had a blast teasing her. When the ride starts you have the option of three tunnels, we were going to the middle one and Kairisti and I started screaming, "no!!! not that one!!! no!!!" Julianna really freaked out. My mom had to spoil the fun by pointing out the tracks. We were so evil!

Look what our evilness produced! Hahaha!!!

Now, you can't go to Disneyland with Mamo (Grandma Lee) and not get a souvenir. Hannah wanted this robotic dog you walked with a remote control.

We told her we were going to take her to the Princess Store in Cinderella's Castle, she thought that was a better idea. We spent about an hour in the Princess Store, she ended up getting a necklace with a locket of Cinderella.
After Hannah's souvenir was taken care of we hit the carousel. I finally got a picture of my mom. She has a reputation of being illusive to the camera.

I scored another picture of my mom on the Dumbo ride.

My family was staying at the Disneyland Hotel so we went to their room to clean up a bit before we went to my dad's dinner. I wasn't too impressed with the Disneyland Hotel. I just expected it to be more magnificent since it was THE Disneyland Hotel. The food at dinner was soooo good. I had about 15 chocolate covered strawberries.
We headed back to the park to get in a few more rides. We walked through Downtown Disney and stopped to hear a violinist play, Hannah loves violins. We all watched...

while Hannah danced...

My family ended up getting Disney Annual Passes, so hopefully we have a lot more Disney days in the future together. We didn't get home until midnight. The kids slept until 10 the next morning.
