Universal Studios Day 2

As we left the hotel room for our second day at Universal Studios I caught Captain Adorable whispering to Mr. Mikey Snowman Poppy. I guess he wanted to make sure to send a little message to Santa.

On our way to the park, Baby Dragon quizzed Sweetie to help her figure out which Harry Potter house she belonged to.

We got Jamba Juice shakes for breakfasts. Sweetie was especially happy to get the Peanut Butter Love smoothie.

When we went to Ollivander’s Wand shop, Sweetie was chosen to get chosen by a wand.

017-storyboard

She was measured and she tested out a couple of wands.

018-storyboard019-storyboard

But when she held this wand she got the dramatic whoosh of air and light. It was very exciting. It was an ash wood wand with unicorn hair.

020-storyboard021-storyboard

The wand cost $50, so we had to disappoint her and tell her we wouldn’t be buying it.

022-storyboard

Sweetie was gracious about not getting the wand, but she later told me that she was a little disappointed that we didn’t get it.

023-storyboard

Everyone had fun exploring the shop and inspecting the wands.

Sweetie and Gabby are such cute friends. Ben used his own spending money to buy a wand.

Baby Dragon and Captain Adorable are waiting for me outside the bathroom. When you are in the bathrooms in Hogsmeade you can hear Moaning Myrtle.

We went in a gift shop and found this book in a cage. It shook and growled and snapped at us.

034-storyboard

We were going to eat ate the expensive Three Broomsticks place, but the food didn’t look appetizing, so we went to the almost as expensive Krusty Burger instead. Handsome Husband is a fan of The Simpson’s show. The kids enjoyed watching clips of the Simpsons while we ate.

035-storyboard

We went to see the Animal Actors show. It was very well done.

036-storyboard037-storyboard038-storyboard

You can see the macaw flying on the green screen, it was cool.

039-storyboard

The kids clapped for the animals.

040-storyboard

Later we also saw the stunt show. That was pretty entertaining.

041-storyboard

The kids were very excited about posing with this random motorcycle for some reason.

042-storyboard043-storyboard

The kids loved this “Twirlers” ride at Super Silly Fun land.

044-storyboard045-storyboard046-storyboard

Ben and Baby Dragon had a great time.

047-storyboard048-storyboard

The kids really wanted to play in the splash area. They got to run around like crazy. We told them not to get soaked because we didn’t have a change of clothes. Sweetie and Gabby got completely drenched. Sweetie said it was on accident. She regretted being wet later since it took a while for her clothes to dry. Baby Dragon said that playing in the water area was one of her highlights of the day.

Baby Dragon got a high five from Alex the Lion.

We got a little sprinkled on while riding the Jurassic Park ride again. Sweetie told me that she liked going on the ride and that the big Tyrannosaurus Rex at the end was awesome, but she didn’t like the drop at the end.

073-storyboard

The stilt walkers found Baby Dragon. Sweetie and Captain Adorable were brave enough to ride the Mummy ride. Sweetie liked the thrill of it. Captain Adorable did not.

074-storyboard

Handsome Husband and Fernando took all the kids on rides so that Jeana and I could have some girl time.

052-storyboard

We had fun goofing around.

053-storyboard054-storyboard

We did a little window shopping.

055-storyboard

Tranformers was a favorite ride. They got to go on it three times in a row.

056-storyboard

Just outside the Transformers ride we got to see Megatron. He spent most of his time insulting the park goers. The kids thought it was hilarious.

057-storyboard058-storyboard

We got to meet Bumblebee and Optimus Prime. Captain Adorable is telling Optimus Prime that he knew where Megatron is.

059-storyboard

Bumblebee played with my hair while we stood there. The kids shoot his hand.

Captain Adorable used some of his souvenir money to buy his very own Butterbeer.

061-storyboard

Captain Adorable has a very generous heart and he shared with those that wanted a sip.

We went on the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Forest ride and I tapped Captain Adorable’s knee to help him know when to open and close his eyes again.

We stayed all the way until the park closed.

We went along the City Walk and looked in some shops. Each of our kids have been saving money from doing chores and then we supplemented what they had saved so they could have a decent amount. Captain Adorable was sweet and randomly thanked us for giving them extra spending money. Baby Dragon bought herself a Ravenclaw pillow. Sweetie fell in love with this little Grinch and she used some of her souvenir money to buy it. Handsome Husband had a great time making the Grinch say all sorts of insulting things in a Grinch voice. The kids were very entertained.

069-storyboard

We ate tasty dinner at Blaze Pizza. Back at the hotel lobby Captain Adorable pretended to sing with the carolers.

076-storyboard

We had a long Uber ride to our Disneyland hotel. We got a hotel within walking distance this time so we wouldn’t have to wait for shuttle rides. When we got to our hotel room we found a little birthday present waiting for Baby Dragon. Her birthday is in two days. I hung up all the costumes I brought for the kids to wear to Disneyland.
