California-Day 2

  • Day 2 started with the Star Tours and Space Mountain.  Both loved by everyone.
  • We ate breakfast with Minnie and some of her friends.
  • Splash Mountain cooled us off.
  • It was beginning to get crowded and hot so we left Disneyland and headed to the beach.
  • We went to Huntington Beach which was about 30 minutes from our hotel, but took probably 45 minutes just to park.
  • Not to brag, but while y’all were experiencing 100 plus temperatures, the weather was 78 degrees and actually a little chilly.
  • We rented an umbrella and settled in for the afternoon.
  • This was the first time the kids had ever been to the beach and they LOVED it!
  • DaughterGeeding stayed out in the water yelling at the waves.  She would yell, “Retreat!” then run back a little.
  • She finally had the opportunity to bury someone in the sand.
  • Being her first time at the beach she didn’t expect to get sand in her swimsuit and it stay there.  A very unusual feeling.
  • BoyGeeding played in the sand building a sandcastle and protecting Luke Skywalker’s home planet of Tatooine.
  • The water was freezing and I didn’t think I would get much deeper than my feet, but eventually ventured out waist deep and was able to catch some awesome waves.
  • Keith threw in some learning about why there is high tide and low tide.  See, we could totally homeschool.
  • People in California are very laid back, at least the ones we saw at the beach.  Playing their music, riding bikes, and rollerblading.
  • It started to get a little cooler so we packed up and headed back to Anaheim to squeeze in one or two more rides.
  • We had a Fast Pass for Soarin’ one more time and then thought we could make it over to Disneyland for Space Mountain; however, one of the screens at Soarin’ was broken so even though we had a Fast Pass it took 30 minutes just to get on the ride.  Micah was in tears because she was so tired.  Again, Keith talked to her and calmed her down.
  • Two of my favorite things-Disney and the beach all in one day with people I love.  Doesn’t get much better.

    You’re reminding of why the California Disney parks are so great. Florida is our go-to spot, but I love the more intimate feeling of both of the Anaheim parks and their close proximity to each other.
