Things I Learned from our Disneyland Trip, Part One

This week has been a whirlwind of adventure, illness, stress, and fun.

So much so, I completely flaked on my very own meme, A Thousand Words Thursday, for the first time in 2 years I didn't put it up, even late.


I learned a lot about my family, about Disneyland, about tourists, this last

**Sleeping in the same room with the kids is something I'm not used to anymore! Talk about sleepless nights. Poor kids were affected by colds and allergies and the midnight sniffing, coughing, and snortling made it hard for a pleasant slumber.


**Swimming overrules blue lips! Kids don't care if the water is cold and it's barely over 62 degrees outside. Also they'd swim in a puddle if it was deep enough.

**Dangle "free breakfast" and "Disneyland" over their heads and you can wake up anyone, parent and child alike early in the morning.

**Rain scares tourists at amusement parks.


**Rain also means $19.99 ponchos for die-hards and NO LINES on Pirates of the Carribbean! WOOT.


**Pirates is a ride you can go on twice, at least!

**When you are too short for some rides, lollipops make the hurt go away!

**People who don't use Fast Pass are cah-razy!

**The Indiana Jones ride was my all-time FAVORITE!

**Dumbo is a water-ride when it's pouring down rain and you're flying through the air! And, if you ask K, it was her favorite!


**My oldest does know how to smile....and she and her brother can get along!

.........part 2 coming soon!

    Those look like some good lessons. Wyn was just getting over a cold when we went and FiFi caught it right in th middle of our week. Thank the lord motrin and some rest helped. We were lucky we didn't get any rain on our trip. It did rain on our trip to Hershey Park last summer and the lines were so short because of it.
