it's been two hours and my boys are still napping


Because we went to Disneyland's Halloween party last night and they didn't go to sleep till 11pm! Check out Little Man in the last photo of the night:
last photo of the night for two exhausted kids who spent the last three hours hopped up on candy, running around the park and trick or treating
It's hard to see, but his eyes are quite glazed with exhaustion and sugar crash. LOL

This was the first time we had taken the boys to the Halloween bash, and also the first time we visited California Adventure. Even tho we are season pass holders, we never go to CA because by the time we've gone through our favorite rides at Disneyland, the kiddos are done and it's time to head home. So it was neat to finally see California Adventure.

They had all the Halloween decorations up and lots of places to trick or treat. It wasn't very crowded....the longest wait was for one of the kiddie rides- maybe 15 minutes. I went on the big roller coaster and Little Man was very worried for me. He saw all the cars going by with people screaming and grabbed my hand.

"Mommy, don't go on that ride!" he said.

"Why not?"

"Because it's too scary! It's very dangerous!"

LOL I had to explain to him that the ride is pretend scary and the people were screaming because they were having fun.

LM and Monkey Boy enjoyed the "Golden Zephyr" the most. The ride has several large rocket ships that swing around in a big circle. MB kept asking to "fly more!". Luckily there wasn't a line so the operators let the Dearest take the boys on the ride several times in a row without getting off.

If you're interested, there are more photos here of the neighborhood Pre-Party and the night in general.

Love those boot-thingies--where were those when I was six?
