Mommy's on vacation-Disneyland, Day 1

We have been avoiding Disneyland since Cars Land opened because it has been crazy.  But Aunt Pam and Madison are in town from Texas and we made the trip to Disney to spend some girl time with them.  We got there when California Adventure opened to get fast passes for the new cars ride because after an hour and a half, they are no longer available.  

 After getting our fast passes, we went over to Disneyland to spend some time.

 Reece was finally tall enough for some big kid rides.  Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, the new Cars racer ride and Soaring Over California were some of her new experiences this trip.  She is still too small for Splash Mountain and the River Rapids ride in California Adventure but she was so excited to be big enough to ride some new things.

 Waiting for Space Mountain.  Cailey was scared to ride it again at first but then Granny talked her into joining us in line.  Both girls loved it.

 Going to see Tinkerbelle.  Cailey had said she wanted to see Tinkerbelle when we came into the park but we told her we would have to see how long the wait was.  Luckily, there was no line and we walked right through.

 Reece took a nap half way through the day.
 Then we headed back to California Adventure for Cars Land.  The new racer ride we had fast passes for was shut down so we decided to come back when it was dark and we could see everything in Radiator Springs all lit up.

 Cailey fell asleep and Reece wanted to push her.

We stayed the whole day, from the time the parks opened until California Adventure closed at 11pm (Disneyland was open until 12am)! It was a long day and the girls did great.  I think it had a lot to do with wanting to keep up with the older girls.  It was a fun (hot!!) day.
