Yep, I am back and as the saying goes, I need a vacation from my vacation! We tried to pack in so much during our week that by the time I got home, my legs were ready to give out, and I was so pooped out it wasn't funny. But who cares! We got to spend 6 lovely days in the California sun (the temps that week were in the high 70's!) walk amongst the flowers and green grass and ride almost every ride in the two parks; multiple times. It was a bit busy, but I have to say everyone in the park was so nice. We all had a common goal, to have fun! Our first ride was Peter Pan (my favorite) and the last ride was Space Mountain. In fact, we rode Space Mountain 3 times, California Screamin' 4 times (a huge roller coaster!) Hollywood Tower of Terror 2 times and most every other ride at least twice. So exhilarating! I love the coasters the best.
But what I found, the thing that gave me the most pleasure was, instant Springtime! Airplanes are like time machines, you go from snowy cold Winter and land into a whole different season. I would grab my Pineapple Whip (have you had those?) and sit on a bench by two flowering Cherry trees and a bank of tulips and just smile. The sun warming my skin, the scent of flowers and the hum of bees. Perfect. I think those memories will last me till our own trees start budding out. Anyway, we filled the days with so many memories, we walked hand in hand, ate good food (Disney makes the best Hot Dogs!) and some bad food (Blue Bayou - too spicy) and enjoyed the parades, and fireworks. (Tinkerbell flying across the night sky made everyone cry) As we bid good-bye, I think we have decided that this may have to be something we do on an annual basis. It just picked our spirits up, it was lovely to have so much together time, but next time we will pace ourselves a bit better and get more sleep, yeah right! Always, Kit
