Back behind Big Thunder Mountain (which is under construction still) is a little petting zoo which was SO cute and not crowded at all.
Great Moments With Mr. Lincoln: This theater was beautiful inside and the animatronic Abe Lincoln was pretty cool too. Kids may have been a tiny bit bored, but it was good for them! This exhibit has been there since the 1950's!
We also saw the flag retiring ceremony one evening which was pretty cool and felt very patriotic. One of the things that I ADORE about Disneyland is that they are patriotic and Christian. I appreciated their Christmas songs when we were there in December that were about Christ.
Fireworks EVERY night!
(notice the guy is INSIDE of that balloon/ball)
Grizzly Bear Rapids. yes Carter looks like he has his hand on a pregnant belly but I'm still posting it cause this was his FAVORITE ride. We have never done it before and we all loved it. It was awesome on such hot days. Next time we go we want to stay at Grand Californian so we can go a bunch of times and then go back to the room and change (assuming it's not 100 degrees again).
We also went to the 4-D show that we have done once before several years ago. It's super cute! The flash blinded Carter so he hurried an covered his eyes. Silly kid!
The Carousal. Another one that we have done before but not in a long time!
Fun to find less crowded areas and not feel rushed.
I will post more pictures of the rest of our trip soon. Including several things Carter got us just for being cute and talking to every Disney employee in the park! :)
