I thought about splitting our Disneyland trip into 2 posts but I figured I'd rather just take the time and do it all right now.
Boss' parents took the whole family to Disneyland last weekend and it was so much fun!
Radiator Springs was a really fun ride. I loved it as much as my girly did!
I was determined on this trip to show Boss that I'm not as wimpy as I seem so I chose to go on Tower of Terror while Nana and Papa took the kids to A Bugs Life. Needless to say, I cried through the whole thing and thought I was going to die. Petey had been asking if she could ride it and after I experienced that, I said HECK NO! We'll come back to the end of that story later...
After a couple more little rides at Bugs Life, we headed to eat lunch.
After that, we headed to Soarin' Over California but the little kids weren't tall enough for that either so we kept them outside and waited for the others to go ride it.
The Grizzly River run was next on the list and not even Petey was tall enough for that one. She was crushed and had a meltdown for a little bit before we found this splash zone where she could watch her daddy come down and get wet! I honestly expected for the splash zone to get them a tiny bit wet...not drenched.
Next was the parade, which the kiddos loved.
At Disneyland, we started with Pirates of the Carribean. Petey loved it. Spider was scared of all the skeletons and kept asking to get off.
We headed over to the other side of the park so Papa could ride Star Wars. The older girls wanted to do it so I went with Petey. Oh my goodness, I'm getting nauseous just thinking about that ride! I am surprised I didn't throw up because I felt sick within 10 seconds of the simulator starting. While we did that, Boss took Spidey to ride the Buzz Lightyear ride, which ended up being his favorite!
The next morning, I told Boss I would be taking Petey on Space Mountain because it is one of my favorite rides at Disneyland. We got there when the park open and we wait maybe 10 minutes to get on the ride. It was awesome. I was a little nervous about Petey but she insisted she wanted to do a bigger rollercoaster. I tried to hold her hand when the ride started and she told me to let go of her so she could put her hands up in the air. I couldn't believe it. She does NOT get that from me. After seeing the way she loved Space Mountain, I considered letting her do Tower of Terror. More on that soon...
After the monorail, Boss and I took the kids to Toon Town. I was pretty adamant about getting over there since we didn't do Toon Town at all the last time we were at Disneyland.
We made our way over to Splash Mountain so the bigger girls could ride it. Both of them loved it and I'm glad we did it. That's always been one of my favorites.
Boss really wanted to take Petey on Space Mountain so they went and did that while Spidey and I rode Winnie the Pooh and this Astro ride.
So back to the story I've been telling throughout this whole thing. With all of the fast rides Petey was loving, Boss and I decided we would let her do Tower of Terror. I was worried about her reaction but wanted to be there if she was super scared so I ended up going on the ride again. It was less intense since I knew what to expect but even though I didn't cry, I still didn't like it. Before, during, and after the ride, Petey was the happiest little girl. She kept her hands up the entire time and laughed through the whole thing. I was dumbfounded. She just seems like my little baby girl. I can't imagine her being that brave but she was.
Tweny minutes into our drive, the kids looked like this...
