The boys made a good effort but only made it half way up Cowles Mountain. Aliciana would have made it to the summit but she was busy carrying Connor most of the way. So, I was the only one to make it all the way to the top.
It’s dangerous to the wallet to have Disneyland less than 1½ hours away. Luckily, they were running a pretty good deal for Southern Californian residences. 3 trips for $159 per person (and Connor is free)… still expensive but not 2nd mortgage expensive.
Gavin wanted to do the science fair this year at his school. Kindergartners weren’t required to make a project but he has always been interested in science.
Gavin did the project himself with just minimal help from us with typing up the data and taking photos. He ended up getting an honorable mention (3rd place for his grade level)!
Disney California Adventure is an amazing place. I’m not sure if it is more fun than the original Disneyland but the atmosphere, from Radiator Springs to the California Sierra Nevada mountains, is mind-blowing. If I were rich and retired, I would just spend all day walking around and enjoy the feeling of being in another world.
This trip we decided to eat at Arial’s Grotto. It was much more expensive than I expected but at least the food was very good. The boys didn’t enjoy the ‘meet every princess’ experience but a little girl would have been in heaven.
