The Happiest Place on Earth

The one, the only DISNEYLAND! (Or Di-knee-lan if you want the BG pronunciation) We have been on vacation the past week. We spent one day at California Adventure and another at Disneyland. We had a great time at both. BG was a little overwhelmed at first, but quickly got into the swing of things. She loved Bugs Land at California Adventure and just about everything at Disney. But her favorites were the princesses (1hr+ line) and It's a Small World (10min).

Since I have nothing else to blog about, I will be taking the whole week to describe our trip. If you aren't so in love with Disneyland, feel free to come back next week.

Monday: JM and I had the day off work to pack and get ready. I still took BG to daycare, making the day much easier for me. JM planted our raspberries (which are already sprouting) while I did housework, shopped, and packed. I did make time for a pedicure and lunch with a girlfriend and he went to lunch with his dad and brother. It was a full and exhausting day.

Tuesday: Since we decided to drive straight through, I wanted to get up early and leave by 8. That, of course, didn't happen. We finally got on the road at 10am. We stopped in Cedar for lunch and played at a park. (Erin, I thought of you!) We hit the road again. We got BG to nap for about an hour which I counted as a success. We had lots of coloring books, toys, and movies.

When we hit Vegas we also hit construction. Vegas was smoky and smoggy. Driving through Vegas is always visually interesting but not a place I think I would want to live. For dinner we stopped at a self-proclaimed 50s diner called Peggy Sue's. After eating there we determined that they spend all their money on marketing since they had billboards every mile for 15 miles, but not on their food or establishment. After more driving we arrived at our hotel and checked in. We crashed that night after a LONG day of driving.

I awoke the next morning positively giddy about going to Disneyland. This is only the begining of what we did.

I was talking to my husband that I want to go to Disneyland this year. It's been way too long.

I would actually love to go during Christmas, just me and him.
