So back to our CA trip. None of us had ever been to California Adventure. You can see that Emma was ready from the get-go.
I love this photo because of my girls' shadows. And BTW, Christy, I guess that your mom isn't the only mom to take butt photos, ha ha!
I discovered another fortunate, yet makes-me-feel-old, advantage of being a grandma: I no longer have to accompany kids on any "I-think-I'm-gonna-lose-my-lunch" rides. I LOVE roller coasters, but I'm so not a fan of rides that spin in circles or bounce up and down or move backwards, thankyouverymuch. So I've become the self-designated "I'll-just-sit-here-and-keep-this-bench-company-while-I-take-photos" old person. Ha ha!
Check out this ferris wheel! It kind of looks like a giant magnetic gyro wheel that I had as a kid. Each car would swing back and forth as it made the giant loop. So not a ride for me!
Emma, of course, was thrilled to meet Jesse and Woody!
I think Ashton was just as happy to hang with Emma.
This is why I love Disney. Check out how happy the kids are!
The big kids were happy, too!
This ride is based on "A Bug's Life." It was soooo cute! This is Heimlech, a caterpillar who eats a LOT.
Camryn thought it was a roller coaster (which it wasn't), so she put her ams up. How cute is that?
Along the ride, we saw a lot of giant-sized food for Heimlech: giant waffles, a giant cupcake, giant fruits and veggies, etc. As the ride ends, Heimlech lefts out a LOUD burp. I asked Emma about her favorite part of the ride. Her answer? The burp! LOL
