Princesses, Roller coasters, and Rain

Friday morning was so great- the threat of rain was enough to keep most people out of the parks so we hardly had to wait in any lines. This led to Ainsley riding California Screamin' (the BIG roller coaster-upside down and everything) FOUR times! She would have gone back for more if she had parents that could handle it more than two times each. Hudson wanted so bad to ride it also, but sadly he isn't quite 48 inches so he can't yet. He rode everything else he could though, basically he isn't scared of anything as long as it is not dark. No Space Mountain for him. Camden took a three hour nap in his stroller while we did California Adventure.

We had lunch at Ariel's Grotto. The princesses all come to your table and visit while you are eating. This was a dream come true for Ainsley. Hudson liked Belle.

We came back and took naps, and sadly then the rain began. And began it did. It was no longer "The Happiest Place on Earth," it was "The Wettest Place on Earth." That didn't stop us from going back to the park, but perhaps it should have. It was REALLY wet. Andrew and Ainsley rode Grizzly River Run (water ride) twice, but it was dark out so Hudson wasn't up for it. A couple of other short rides and then we returned SOAKED. There was 1.51 inches of rain last night when we were in the park. We are hoping to be a bit drier today before flying home tonight. Here are a few pictures from yesterday.

Ainsley, you have my utmost respect for going on that roller coaster four times. I'm scared to death of roller coasters! (I went on a kiddie one once and that was the end of my roller coaster adventure. Isn't that pathetic?) : ) I hope you and your family have a fun and safe 'rest-of-vacation'.

Oh dear! The memories will be priceless. I can't wait to hear about all of your adventures and see all of the pictures.
