Parked Between the Stars of Cars

We found Mater and Lightning McQueen hanging out in front of the new Cars themed attraction coming soon to Disney in California. This was taken during the second half of our day that involved a tour of both theme parks. It was hot and crowded, but we managed to get in most of the rides we wanted. One of Ty's favorites this time around was the classic Pirates of the Caribbean ride. He loved the part when it drops down the ramp and splashes.

Beauty and the Beast

Probably a cruel blog post title, but since cousin Cam is a really good sport, he will laugh along with us. Ty was also very enamored by Cam's girlfriend, Nicole, who promised to take him on a date the next time we go to LA.

An Evening on the Pier

We spent last week in Southern California hitting the theme parks and beaches. Our first full day, we drove up to LA and spent some time with Aunt Murphy, Uncle John and Cousin Cam (and his girlfriend). For dinner we all met at a restaurant just across from the Santa Monica Pier. But before dinner we had a chance to walk on the pier and check out one of the last arcades around. 

Here's a shot of Ty riding a motorcycle racing game.

And here's a great shot looking back at the end of the pier with the ocean. Ty enjoyed staring down at the breaking waves on the sand below.
