Yes, we survived the Disneyland experience! It's been hard to get back into the routine... and I'm exhausted. BUT, it was all worth it. Here's a few highlights:
** riding all the big rides at least three times each... all together... as a family (well, except for California Screamin' which Toto refused to try)
** avoiding some of the long lines by having JJ sit in a wheelchair to save the wear and tear on her still healing knee that she blew out at dance a week or so ago.
** making the most of two entire days and one half a day at Disneyland! Non-stop running here and there until the bitter end!
** taking a day off of Disneyland to match our hands to the handprints of the stars in the sidewalk in Hollywood...
** .... and wading on the beach.
** reading in the car! And when it was dark, listening to a very fun, newly discovered podcast about books. (Check it out here: Books on the Nightstand)
** sleeping! Ah, we slept hard and heavy!
** eating! Ah, we ate tons too much! (Including at an In and Out Burger for our first time finally!)
** finally arriving home at straight up midnight after driving all day long! Whew!
Now, I've got to get reading. I have an over due book at the library... and blog tour stop next week! And book clubs coming up. And challenges running out. You know... the usual....
