Disneyland Day 3

We walked into the park for our 3rd and final day.  I loved the Halloween decorations and the character pumpkins at the entrance to the park.  Minnie is of course my favorite.
 We finally got a picture in front of the Mickey pumpkin!
We went to Minnie's to have breakfast with the characters.  Oh my, it was the best breakfast we had while there.  The french toast was delicious, they bake it with brown sugar on top!
We didn't see many characters while at breakfast.  Captain Hook did walk past us and despite the effort of the kids around us to get him to stop, his chaperone said he'd be back.  He never came back.  There was one of the mice from Cinderella but that was about it.
Brodie enjoyed ripping apart the napkins and giving me the pieces, though.  He is so stinking cute!
After breakfast we walked over to Frontierland and got on the Tom Sawyer ferry for a ride around the lost boys island.
 We stopped in front of one of the stores in Frontierland for a show that Tristan got to participate in!
Those kids are so cute!
We walked back over to California Adventure and rode Soarin' Over California again, loved that ride.  It's a motion simulated ride that takes you over parts of California like the vineyards and the Golden Gate Bridge. Then we went in to the Aladdin play.  It was a very welcome play since we got to sit down!  Our feet hurt so bad and I think all of us adults may have slept for a minute or two!  But the play was excellent and the Genie was hilarious!
We were walking out as The Incredibles came down the street for a show.
The dreaded Tower of Terror
We went to the rest of the rides we wanted to ride and see before we had to leave.  We had made reservations to eat at Goofy's Kitchen that night.  We went back to the hotel and got ready for dinner.
 They had mac & cheese pizza and PB&J pizza (my favorite!) and the rest of the buffet was good as well.  It was fun for the kids to see the characters that came through.
We went back to the hotel for our last night and crashed.  We were all so tired from our 4 days of Disney fun!
Here's the view out of our hotel room.
We woke up the next morning and got packed and ready to go home.  I didn't want this vacation to end!  But we got packed and down to the valet to get everything back into the van and headed back to Henderson.
While we were stopped at a gas station, Jaimee got a phone call from her sister telling her that their father was in the hospital with heart problems.  It was very scary and he ended up having triple bypass surgery yesterday.
We were going to spend Sunday night at Jaimee and Jason's but decided to head back home when we got to their house.  So we hung out with them for a while and then back on the road home at about 4pm Vegas time.  Jaimee kept us up to date on how her dad was doing as we drove home.
It was a long day in the car but we were happy to get home to the furbabies we missed!  We got home at about 2am and crashed hard.  Luckily I took Monday off work so I could sleep in and get back into reality.
Disneyland was so fun, I want to go back every year!  Josh and I haven't really been on a vacation since our honeymoon 8 years ago so it was great to get away for a few days.
