Family Fun days at Disneyland

This morning we had a bit of a slow start, but we did manage to plant our tomatoes that was a gift from Andrea and Violet. Let's hope that my black thumb doesn't kill them.

We decided that we needed a bit of family time at our favorite spot, so we headed to DCA. They are totally re-doing EVERYTHING over there, so this is the new entrance plaza.

Libi's one and only request was to go on Soarin', so while Ron got Fast Passes we visited Lightening McQueen.

After lunch on the Pier...

we decided to head to the Blue Sky Cellar.

After seeing the plans for CarsLand inside it was fun to see it take shape outside.

It is so funny to me that the first time Libs did this ride was in EPCOT...

but today we made our West Coast debut on the ride. She still loves it!!!

We ran into Disneyland to take advantage of Character Fun Days.

They brought out all sorts of hard to find characters and had them back in Big Thunder for photo ops. We got to see Horace and Clarabelle,

Snow White and the Queen,

DOPEY (my favorite!!!),

all 7 dwarfs in one photo,

and the gang from Peter Pan-- Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, Peter Pan, and Wendy.

Libs loved getting to spend a little time with each of them.

These Family Fun Weekends are going to be a lot of fun!!!

Libs even got to color the above sheet with Geppetto!

Our final ride of the day was Dumbo-- more accurately Ron and Libi's final ride was Dumbo.

I took the opportunity to take some great photos...

gotta love sports mode...

for flying elephants!

While they were in line...

I ran to do some shopping!

We now have every single dress up character they make.... until they make new ones!

One final Dumbo pic...

then we were on our way...

A perfect Saturday at the Happiest Place on Earth!
