Calvin in the Jedi Training Academy

On our last day at Disneyland we finally got over to see the Jedi Training Academy in Tomorrowland.  It is a live show that teaches the practices of Jedi Knights to the little kids in the audience if you haven't seen it.  They select kids from the audience and give them a robe and a light saber.  Calvin was lucky and got chosen!  He was pretty excited.  Just a little hint if your little kid wants to get chosen have them wear something Star Wars or make a huge sign, those kids got picked first!  So he was taught a routine and then Darth Vader and Darth Maul came out and the kids got to fight them.  Calvin fought Darth Maul and won! LOL

Disney Photo store that I will scan later and add.)

Kaylee and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

On this trip to Disney's California Adventure Kaylee decided she wanted to go on The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror so myself and mom (Judy) with went her.  She didn't show any signs of fear or being scared, in fact I think I was more scared for her then she was!  


Next time she should be tall enough for California Screamin'.

Family Disneyland Trip, June 2011

We took a summer trip to Disneyland Resort last week with Judy (Mom) and Cody. We were there for 6 days and 5 nights and had a great time, but it went by too fast!  The newly re-opened Star Tours 3-D (Disneyland) and new Little Mermaid (California Adventure) rides opened recently so we got to ride those.  We are home now and recovering from our 2500 mile round trip of fun!

The new Star Tours 3-D ride is pretty awesome:
