Disneyland Here We Come

April 23, 2007

The countdown to our vacation has started . . . 24 days to go.When I was younger, my father was also employed by the airlines so I’ve been lucky to grow up with free travel benefits. Believe me, I’m no stranger to flying stand-by. We knew that when Dad said to run to the gate, we all ran! We knew not to complain about anything, not to ask for anything special, take whatever seat they gave us, and be extra nice to the crew. My Dad had a reputation to protect.It’s a great benefit that allowed us to travel during every summer vacation.

Now it my family’s turn. We’ve been taking Girlie Girl to Disneyland every year since she was 1 year old. It’s no wonder that she loves all the Princesses. I remember last year when we were on a quest to get every single Princesses’ autograph. By the end of our trip we had all but one . . . Mulan. So what did we do? We canceled our plans and stayed an extra day just to stake out California Adventure Park in hopes that we’d find her. Our efforts were definitely rewarded when Mulan made her rare appearance and completed the autograph book.

This year will be Baby Bug’s first time to the Magic Kingdom and I can hardly wait to introduce her to all the wonderment that surrounds this magical place.It’s an unbelievable feeling to be able to see Disneyland through a child’s eyes. It kind of makes you feel like a kid again, too.Where was your family’s favorite vacation spot?

the beach… every spring break we’d head to the Oregon coast.

fly kites, build bonfires, eat KFC on the sand, dig, collect, listen to the waves at night. Mostly do nothing and love the heck out of it.
