The first morning we were in Disneyland we headed straight to Pixie Hollow. Two very small girls had been talking about visiting Tinkerbell's house for quite some time. Susanna actually used to call her "tickle bear" and we couldn't figure out who she was talking about. Pixie Hollow was not high on the older sisters' list of attractions, but they were good sports.
Teacups are the first ride everyone (but mom- I didn't feel good the rest of the day the first time we rode them) goes on.
Daddy works hard to make it spin. Kerrie's face is so cute to me in this picture.
Notice the short sleeves and tank tops. The weather was glorious.
Kiley had to do the heavy work in this cup.
Mom, Kiley, Hannah and Paige went on Splash Mountain. Notice the briar patch in the background.
Riding in our log. Kiley was the only one who got noticibly wet.
Thunder Mountain Railroad was a big hit. Susanna was scared the first time (even shed a little tear) but went back every time the big girls and Dad rode it.
Later that day we went to California Adventures thinking it may be a little less crowded. The girls LOVE this ride, California Screaming. Lizzie vowed if she was big enough this year she would ride this huge roller coaster. I thought she might chicken out.
She is no chicken!!! I lost count of how many times they went on this ride.
While the big girls rode the roller coaster (over and over again), Kerrie and Susanna enjoyed the neighboring merry-go-round.
They also met Jessie the Cowgirl. Kerrie became obsessed with her. We ended up buying a Jessie the Cowgirl baby for her Disneyland souvenir.
One of our other favorite rides at California Adventures is the river ride.
Notice how dry we were at the beginning. We always make bets on who is going to get drenched each ride.
Take a wild guess who it was this time.

What a great vacation post! It sounds like so much fun! How lucky to have such beautiful weather...plenty warm enough that the smiles remained on those that got wet! Liz looks so tiny in that huge roller coaster! I love Susanna's little pose that is common in most pics - with the tilted shoulders and popped hip! Kerrie's little face couldn't be cuter - squealing with delight! What could be better than six girls in Disneyland?!
