We went to Disneyland on Tuesday to get our passes and hang out for a few hours. It ended up being a HOT day! We were dying when we finally arrived in the park from the parking lot, so we sat under the bridge at California Adventures for 1/2 hour. Then we went to "It's a Small World" since we knew it was long, slow, and, most importantly, air conditioned. :) The boys did great. We took lots of breaks to sit in the shade and drink water. I kept sprinkling water all over the boys to keep them cool. Bugga was soaked by the end of the day, but I think he loved it. We spent most of the day sitting in the shade, people-watching, knowing we could come back in a month or so when it cools down. The Chief took Buddha on a few rides. We were really proud of him because he kept asking to go on rides. He wasn't afraid at all. He even went on a pretty big roller coaster with The Chief. He looked a little worried the whole time, but he didn't cry and he said he liked it. I think his favorite, though, were the various stationary "cars" they had around the park that Buddha just had to drive. He hated giving up the wheel for another kid to hop on for a picture. He would stand nearby so as to pop right back on when they were finished. :) It was a fun day despite the heat and I'm sure we'll end up at Disneyland again some time soon. Hopefully on a cooler day when I can get better pictures. I wasn't too motivated to whip out the camera. Oh, and the crown picture has a cute story. Buddha picked a whale to ride on the carousel and before the lady started it, she placed a crown on Buddha's head then spoke into the PA saying, "Ladies and gentleman, we have a very special guest with us today. His name is Prince Buddha." Yeah, he was beaming when he got off of that ride. :)

It's fun seeing pictures of your boys at Disneyland. It was really hot when we were there too. I am jealous you get to go there whenever you want. Rough life.
