I haven't blogged for awhile because I have been having so much fun. It all started on October 13th, MY BIRTHDAY! I had a fun day beginning with my favorite breakfast-Pillsbury orange rolls. We then went Bowling, shopping, lunch at Wingers. Followed by a great undisturbed nap, and dinner at Joy Luck. It was a great day, the only thing I demanded was that it be declared a no work day. It was such a nice day, a big THANKS! to my hubby, children, and family .
Our next adventure was a family trip to DISNEYLAND. The plan was to all drive down as a family, but it ended up that Cache had to fly to San Francisco, so I drove down with the kids and met Cache at our hotel in Anaheim. The drive went good, better actually than I had expected. I have been wanting to visit my good friend Heather in Las Vegas, and this plan made it possible. I drove to Vegas and stayed the night at her house and then headed for California the next morning. It was so fun visiting until the late hours of the night and spending good time with her. Thanks Heather for letting us crash at your home.
Disneyland was so much fun! Cache has not gone since he was about 10 years old. All he remembered was thinking how lame it was and falling asleep on the "It's a Small World" ride. This time around he enjoyed a lot more (I am sure he enjoyed it 20 years ago too, but he just forgot). I haven't been since I was 16 years old, and so it is about time we returned.
We went with our good friends the Hancock's-they were so much fun! We probably weren't as much fun as they were. We pooped out on the second night and missed Fantasmic, which we thought we could catch on the remaining 2 days, but it was canceled the next night due to high winds (those darn Santa Ana's), and the last night was Monday and they don't do it on Mondays. Grrrr. We really wanted to see it.
The kids had so much fun. They loved everything about it. Well---almost everything. "E" wasn't too fond of Space Mountain, which was one of her first rides she went on. That kinda ruined a lot of other rides, because she was too scared to try them. Note to self: start out on the easy mild rides and then work up to the fast crazy rides. She did enjoy Soarin' California and Mickey Mouse's toontown roll-a-coaster and of course-the TEACUPS! I HATE the teacups, I have gotten sick on them everytime I have gone on them and I not excluding this time. Cache and the kids rode them about 8 times (or more). Ask "A" what his favorite ride was and he will re-ply "teacups!".
Disneyland-so much fun! I hope we don't wait another 12-20 years to return.
