Disney (I think)

We went to see the fireworks at Disneyland last night. It was really beautiful.

As we got near the park and starting seeing some of the huge rides Zoe went nuts! She was very excited. Cole just kept looking the other way at the traffic saying WOW! He's weird. His favorite parts of the trip so far have been the parking garages.

So we get parked and ride a tram in, which was quite an ordeal. We get in the park and walk around amazed, snapping tons of pictures. The entire time Zoe just keeps saying, "I can't believe we are at Disneyland". We ride a fun Monster Inc. ride that even Cole enjoyed. They also had a street called Glowfest and there were dancers all lit up and loud music. There was a crowd gathered in a circle and kids dancing in the middle. Zoe even worked up the nerve to go in the middle and dance.

The fireworks were at 9:30. At 9:00 Zoe bought these light up ears (one lady said she looked like a tan Minnie Mouse). We asked the lady working if we could see the fireworks from anywhere in the park and she said, "The fireworks are at Disneyland". What?!? Brad and I were quiet for a minute and finally Brad says, "I'm confused, we're not in Disneyland?"

We had been at California Adventure! Luckily we still made it to DISNEYLAND in time for the amazing fireworks.

We got back to the motel about midnight. Another late night for the Ward family!
We went back to the beach today. This was a different beach and wasn't nearly as crowded. There were a lot of young, pretty people at the other beach and I told Brad we weren't nearly as cool as them. He said "speak for yourself".
I finally got Cole out by the water and he was starting to like it. Then a huge wave came and went completely over his head. Oops!

It took about 15 minutes after that, but he went back out there. He loved throwing the sand. I bet he picked up sand and threw it for 30 minutes straight. Then he even started to have fun in the water. It was cold. It's only about 75 degrees here. Perfect actually!

The trip is great and we are having a blast with the kids. They are being really good. It's nice when we have nothing to do but enjoy them!


  1. That looks like so much fun! I can't wait to see what you guys do next! Zoe looks adorable... just like a tan Minnie Mouse, that woman was right. I LOVE her bikini, too. Save it for us, please!!!

  2. Since Cole is so interested in traffic and parking issues, maybe he can grow up to be an urban planner...or at least a Ward that can read a map well enough to find one of the biggest theme parks in the world.

  3. Have you guys ever spent a whole day at an Ozarkland thinking that it was Silver Dollar City?
