This time, we got to share the fun with our sweet friends Teresa and Wren. We went the Monday before the Fourth of July, and the crowds weren't too bad. It was a very hot day, and we decided to go in the late afternoon after the kids had napped.
It was fun to go on some "new" (to us) rides this time. We tried Dumbo, Autopia, and Pirates. Dumbo and Autopia were hits with the kids, but I think Wren was a little nervous on Pirates. I don't blame him. It's just that there was only a five-minute wait, and it was cool in there. I hope he's not been scarred for life. Michaela didn't seem to mind it.
When the fireworks show began, we found ourselves in New Orleans Square - not the ideal place to watch the show, but there was no way we were going to get over to Main Street then. After all that excitement and waiting to see the fireworks, Michaela was kind of scared during the show. I think the loud booms freaked her out. She kept telling me "All done!" and "Go home!". But by the end of the show, she seemed to relax a bit. I think the next time we see the show, she'll be fine.

I'm so glad Teresa and I were able to experience Disneyland together with our little ones. Many summers ago, we were there together as cast members in Tomorrowland.
Speaking of Tomorrowland... On our way to Autopia, we saw the band playing at Tomorrowland Terrace. Michaela loves to dance to music these days, and so we stopped by for a little bit and let her and Wren boogy. Many summers ago, her daddy played music in a band there (and at other venues in the park). Wish he could have been there with us on this day, too.
