Think Of A Happy Thought...


Yesterday, after Paprika got out of school at 4 o'clock, we loaded up the car and took the girls to Disneyland and California Adventure for the night. Disneyland is open until midnight right now, and the other park is open until 10pm, so we knew we'd get a lot of fun in...especially if we stayed until they closed. Which we did!


We have Annual Passes, so we can go and it's low-pressure. I thought if it was crowded, we'd stick around for an hour or two, have dinner, and head home. But much to our surprise, the summer crowds haven't hit yet, so we had the whole place to ourselves practically!


We rode lots of rides (some of them many times in a row), had popcorn, and enjoyed a laid-back evening.

Ginger's favorite ride is It's A Small World.


Can you tell? She was so tickled, we had to ride it twice (and it's a 15 minute boat ride). Needless to say, I've got that song stuck in my head today on repeat! Ha!


We made sure to get a front row seat for the Fireworks display. It was incredible! We've probably been to Disneyland 70 times in the past three years...and yet we have never watched the fireworks. We're usually off riding rides when they happen...but for some reason, last night I really wanted to see them, so we planned ahead. They did not disappoint! Spectacular!

The girls are looking so stinking cute. I'm glad you guys got to see the fireworks! How fun! Last time we went to WDW in FL, we saw them from our hotel... not quite as cool as in person!

The photo of the castle with fireworks is professional quality. I love it. I haven't been to Disneyland since I was a teenager and then it was only twice. But I still remember it. Next time you go, ride the Matahorn and think of me. My favorite ride, 6 times in a row, when I was 15.
Ya'll are having a great holiday. So happy for all of you.
Charlie and I had a hoot on the slide today. Woohoo! It's summer time :)
