Winter Trip to Disneyland

Day 1 Disneyland:


Okay so it's not actually day one.  The first day we spend 10 hours in the car driving down.  I don't know why this trip seems to get longer every time we make it but it seems too.  We picked up Mom and Dad Mansius late Tuesday night and then Lee early Wednesday morning then we started at Disneyland.  

Joshie was not only put in charge of watching out for whales but became a Star Ranger to stop the Evil Zurg.  He wasn't so good at look out for whales though because we were swallowed by one.

I think they put this family in the right cage.  They are a CRAZY bunch of MONKEYS!

 Lilly was FASCINATED with EVERYTHING!  She starred wide eyed everywhere she went and wanted to stop and look every second to look at something.  It wasn't her first time here but she was very little last time. Another favorite of hers was to pick up leaves and give them to everyone as a present.  Normally I'm the only person that she wants to snuggle up with but on this trip whenever Grandpa Mansius was around he instantly become her favorite person.  She wanted him to carry her if she was tired and wanted to go on every ride with him.

 We even got to hang out with Uncle Lee for a couple days.  We hadn't seen Lee in about 4 years.  Eliza became his little buddy!  It was great seeing him and hopefully soon we will get to meet the rest of the Lee Mansius clan.

 Day 2: California Adventures

On both days Aubrey was tall enough to ride a ton more rides and for the most part loved them.  She did not love the Cars ride.   She said she didn't like the bumps and decided she didn't want to go on it again.  She also doesn't like the Pirates for the same reason.  She didn't like the steep drops. For some reason that I don't get she loves Star Tours.  Usually anything with a lot of motion she doesn't like so I figured she would not like it.  She went on it THREE times.  Her favorite part was when the pointy space ship goes crashing through our front window in 3D.

Eliza wanted to ride all by herself for the first time!
