Disneyland Day 3

On our third day in Disneyland, we hit all of the rides we missed or rides that were our favorite.

Emmy wanted me to do her hair like Minnie's ears.
 While Grandma was getting another fast pass for the Radiator Springs and Brandon went and got a fast pass for the Soaring Over California, we went and rode the Monsters Inc. ride.  It was a cute ride and a fun way to start off our day.

The next ride we went on was the Grizzly River Run.  There was no wait and the kids just ran right through. The kids loved it! Poor Emmy got completely drenched!

 We rode the Toy Story Mania ride again that the kids and adults absolutely loved, but not before we stopped and Hyrum took a picture with Donald Duck.
Then we went on Soaring Over California.  It was pretty neat to have an air-side view of the state of California.

Next,  we headed off into the Disneyland park, to the Toon Town area.  The kids thoroughly enjoyed all the silly things in Toon Town.    The kids even had a chance to meet Goofy. 
 Hyrum, Ben and Emmy, loved the funny cars, houses, post office, Roger Rabbit ride, etc.  Even Lucy thought Toon Town was fun.

The roller coaster was just the right size for our family. 

After Toon Town, we were able to met up with some of our dear, dear, friends from BYU.  They are some of the best friends that we have every had and we are so grateful that they took time out of their busy day to meet us in Disneyland. We were able to ride the Haunted Mansion ride and the Winnie the Pooh ride together. 

After we said good-bye to our friends, we headed back to the hotel for some much need rest.  We made it back just in time to ride the Radiator Springs ride again! 

While the big kids were on the ride, Lucy played in the Stanley fountain with Papa.  She loved every minute of playing in the water with Papa.  I am sure playing in the water fountain was a highlight of both Papa's and Lucy's trip.  

 Next, we headed to Luigi's Casa Della Tires for Hyrum as well as Mater's Tow Truck ride for Ben. 
 Carsland in the evening, with their neon lights on, is amazing!

As it started to get dark, we headed over to Paridise Pier to watch World of Color. It was amazing. Various colors, lights and water would dance to classic Disney songs from beloved movies. It was a sight to behold.

When World of Color was over, everyone except Hyrum, Grandma and I went back to the hotel.  Grandma, Hyrum and I hit all of Hyrum's favorite rides again. We went on Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Carribean, Tea Cups, Dumbo, and Pinnochio. It was a fun time to have just the three of us. I think Hyrum was in heaven!

It was a wonderful trip.  The kids did amazing, even Lucy.  Disneyland is a magical place.  As my dad says, "It was a trip of a lifetime!"
