A couple of hours at Disneyland and Ca Adventure

Today we got up early and headed to Anaheim for a visit with friends. It's only a 4 hour drive so we left home about 0800 but somehow made really good time and got there a little after 1100? Not sure - I was driving and not going THAT fast. Unfortunately Sakura barely napped in the car and was quite grumpy when we got there. It was my plan to have lunch with Dean, he was going to go to a movie and then Sakura and I would meet up with Auntie Eryn (and family) afterwards --- plans don't always work out. We got there, Dean checked the movie times and headed straight for his movie. So Sakura and I started toward the park, and when we turned around there was Auntie Eryn and Auntie Bee (and family) - we chatted for a few minutes, and Sakura and I headed into the park and Auntie Eryn would text us later after she gathered her family who had just headed back to the room. Unfortunately we didn't have anyone's number's otherwise we could have text to see if anyone wanted to meet up for a ride or two - but that's okay - off Sakura and I went to Disneyland to ride a couple of rides.

Someone was SO sleepy!

But perked up a bit on the monorail :)

Of course our first stop was King Arthur's Carousel at Disneyland - Sakura's favorite.

Then we headed over to get a bite to eat before heading back to the carousel again for 2 more rides.

Sakura waiting in line for another turn.

Yep, she LOVES the carousel. We headed over to It's a Small World Sakura's other favorite, but the line was LONG and I knew she wouldn't make it :( No Small World this trip.

We had a little visitor during lunch.

We got a text from Auntie Eryn and headed over to California Adventure to meet up with them. On our walk, there was some LOUD music, and Sakura immediately stuck her fingers in her ears, she's NOT a fan of loud sounds of any kind.

We were supposed to meet in Bugs Land - so while we waited we took a ride on Heimlich's Chew Chew Train

Then we managed to meet up with Auntie Eryn and family.

FINALLY I got to meet adorable Baby Kaila - instant love, she is the sweetest cuddliest baby and Sakura and I fell fast in love with her!

We managed to sneak in one ride before Daddy called and was finished with his movie and ready to go check in to our hotel :(

The Little Mermaid ride, Nikko rode with me and Sakura and told us all about it, what a sweet guy he is!

Nikko and Sakura (dark ride, wrong camera setting - BooHoo!)

Emi, Miya and Auntie Eryn in the other clam

Sakura is not a fan of Ursela even though she hasn't ever seen the movie

SUCH a cute ride - we will definitely be headed back and ride again.

Too much to do, too little time - off to check in at the hotel with Daddy. We will be back hopefully soon and ride more rides.
