... The pass was for 8:30-9:30pm so good thing we got it first off or we would have been waiting a long time for that ride.
The first ride we went on was Soarin' which is an IMAX-like plane ride through California hitting all of the popular spots. Great cinematography and was pretty cool seeing some of the places that we've already been from a different view. Next up was "California Screaming" which is the big roller coaster. Shayna was ...
... we got up, totally oblivious to the night time excitement, we got a pretty good story. At least where we live, even though we complain about the -30 temperatures, it does prevent scorpion infestations.
The rest of the day was a lot less exciting, though still fun. Everyone spent a few hours in the pool before the FIFA World Cup Final started while Michelle and Gina went off shopping. It was over 40C again today so the kids spent the afternoon indoors playing ...

Monday -- checked out a hiking area I'd read about on an RVer's blog -- Cove Oasis. We hiked about 1.8 miles in ...
... learning the history of the Salton Sea.
Getting there was also interesting in that we went through a very green agricultural area including date palms which I had never seen. The picture I am sending shows bags on the palm trees. They are there to protect the dates from birds, wind, etc. When we left we were able to find a place to buy some dates.
