Good morning, my friends.
♥We had SO much fun this weekend! This morning finds me with tired feet from walking so much, sore smile muscles from smiling so much, and a happy heart from playing and laughing and loving so much.
It had been over 20 years since Doug or I had been to Disneyland. Carrie has been
We drove to northern California on Friday and spent a few hours in California Adventure, and then Saturday morning we hit Disneyland. The weather was absolutely perfect, and for the most part the crowds weren't all that bad (until later in the day/evening).
I'd forgotten how much I love Disneyland. Or maybe I love it even more now that I've been there with three adults(-ish) and no toddler to accommodate. We had the best time!
This is Disneyland's 60th year anniversary! The park was decked out in sparkly diamond decorations, and the electrical light parade is "bigger and better than ever" except that I didn't see that part. Too many people by that time of the day, but I did catch a glimpse of a few floats over the top of the crowd of people. Carrie and her beau stayed late enough to catch the second showing and she said it was fantastic!
So yeah, Carrie has a boyfriend ♥, and when we invited him to join us at the last minute (Friday night) he moved mountains to make it happen. He drove from Arizona that morning and met Carrie at Disneyland's gate and the four of us had the best time. By the end of the day we all agreed that it was the most fun any of us have ever had in Disneyland. :o)
We rode a whole bunch of rides, including the Buzz Lightyear ride where you shoot little laser guns at targets. Carrie and Andrew beat our combined score by 100 points...because everything is a competition, you know. ;o)
All day long I kept seeing little kids with these really cool battery operated bubble guns. I wanted one! So on our way out of the park we braved another long line and purchased one as a souvenir. It lights up and shoots out lots of bubbles and came at a time when I was so tired I couldn't take one more step. Totally perked me up for the walk back to our hotel. :o)!!!
Time to switch back to work mode and maybe eat something healthy today. Maybe.
Have a great week, my friends.
