Disneyland Through the Eyes of a Child

Disneyland was a blast. I think Brighton will enjoy it much more in a year or two, but she was just so wide-eyed and fascinated with everything, it was like seeing the world through the eyes of a 15-month-old. I've never seen that girl scared of ANYTHING until we wanted to get pictures of her and the oh-so-scary Goofy. :) She was also a little nervous on the Pirates of the Carribean ride. And sometimes she was more interested in holding the steering wheel of the ride than she was the actual ride itself.

It was also really fun being there with my nieces and nephews ages 2, 8, and 9. And sometimes visiting an amusement park with my dad is as good as being there with a child. I swear that guy could start going on rides at 8:00 am and not want to stop until the last churro was sold.

Ahh, my one Disneyland regret, not eating a churro. Autym and I searched frantically at 10:59 pm on our last night there until we found the last remaining churro stand still open. Then, to our UTTER dismay the woman in front of us turned around and said, with a smirk, "I'm getting the last one!". I hope you inhale some of that sweet succulant cinnamon dust and I hope it makes you cough! Oh, how spiteful of me!!

I'll miss you churro!, Uh, I mean Disneyland! Oh and if you need directions, ask Jason. He'll tell you to banana right. :)

This is an awesome blog - of course - it's the first blog I've ever read. How do you know when someone has a blog????

I loved the Disneyland pictures and I loved the picture of you! That was beautiful. Did Aaron take it?

I don't know if you'll see this - but let me know when you have more. I'm bookmarking this.
