California Adventure

All of a sudden, Nosy Nora has been wanting to "talk" to the characters at Disneyland. On most of our past Disney visits, she would just cower behind my leg. This is definately a change in attitude. So, she was super excited to meet my Oregon friends at California Adventure today. Her goal: talk to Minnie Mouse. I love her new found bravery, but I also miss the days where I could just push the stroller past a long character line with no fuss. You can never guarantee a Disney character sighting, or a short enough line to actually get an autograph. Today was our lucky day. On our way out of California Adventure, Nosy Nora spotted Goofy, we hopped into line with only 3 people ahead of us, then 5 minutes later, out came Minnie! Hooray, mission accomplished.

Irvine Park Easter Egg Hunt

Before Easter, we joined our friends for a fun day at Irvine Park in Orange. They had a fun Easter Egg Hunt, bounce house, the Easter Bunny, crafts and various other events set up. This is a great park, definately worth the drive if you have never been there. Inside the park they have a train, pony rides, a small zoo, playgrounds, paddle boats, ponds (with ducks to feed of course) and concession stands open in the summer. Overall, a great place to explore. Nosy Nora and I always have a great time there.
