Monday - California Adventure

On Monday, we went to California Adventure, which is the other Disney park in Anaheim, right next to Disneyland. I'd never been there before, and had read mixed reviews, so we actually talked about not going and just hanging out at the beach or something, but finally we decided to go. I'm so glad we did - we had a blast! We only stayed about 5 hours, but that was OK because there were a lot of rides we'd done before, in Orlando, and it's not a huge park anyway, so we didn't miss much.

They have one ride called the Grizzly River Run, and it's like Kali Rapid River in Animal Kingdom. We were unprepared, though. No ponchos. Abby got soaked. Completely soaked. There wasn't a dry inch anywhere on her. Fortunately I had a pair of shorts that she usually wears under her skirts, so I put that on her and put on her jacket, after stripping off every inch of her dripping wet clothes! We didn't learn our lesson, though, and rode it again before we left the park. This time I got the worst of it, and it was getting cold outside. No big deal, though, because we were on our way out of the park.

It was a great day. And we made it back to Lee & Gayle's in time for dinner with Toddles. Even better.
