Day 2 - California Adventure

Day 2 of our trip to Anaheim had us going to California Adventure!  None of us (out of the four of us) had ever been.

So we started out the day intent on definitely hitting up the new Cars Land.  When we got there (around 10 I think), the FastPass for the Radiator Springs Racers were all gone (???) and the standby was around 2 hours long (no WAY).  With that disappointment out of the way (more for us, Daniel had no idea), we did get to go on Mater's Junkyard Jamboree.  We did the rider swap again (Jared was too small), which ends up being good for Daniel because he gets to go on it twice.

After a quick picture with Mater, we made it to a Bug's Land, and rode the ladybugs twice (Francis' ladybug boogie...Jared got to go on that one!).  After that, we were sort of wanting for some ice cream, so we made our way to an ice cream shop and ended up getting our whole order for free, as we happened to be the "customer's of the hour".  That was our morning.

Coming back after naps and determined to hit up more than we had in the morning, we went to Mickey's Fun Wheel (on the sliding cars!).  Jared had the MOST fun out of all of us.  Mike doesn't care much for ferris wheels (makes him sick), I had a minor freak out with the sliding around, and Daniel was just nervous.  Jared...he was thrilled!

We ended with a little souvenir shopping (some light-up toys), riding the Golden Zephyr, and running through the obstacle course at the Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.

All told, rides were Mater's Junkyard Jamboree, twice on Francis' Ladybug Boogie, Mickey's Fun Wheel, Golden Zephyr and Redwood Creek Challenge Trail.  Not a ton, but it was still fun just "seeing" things there.
