We took some much needed vacation time last month. We took our beautiful star to Disneyland for the first time. We had a great time, it is a lot of work to have fun, but it was worth it. It was so magical to see her light up when she met Mickey and Minnie. It has been almost twenty-five years since we were last at the Magic Kingdom with our birth-children. There was so much to see and do, but we were ever mindful of the need for naps - not only for Bella, but also for us! We made an effort to ride some of the old standards and do some new things too. We ate at the Blue Bayou for the first time. It was by far the most expensive meal we have had at Disneyland, but the food and the service was second to none... well worth it. Bella's favorite was the King Arthur Carrousel, she must have ridden it three times!
We took the Amtrak train to Disneyland to avoid driving in So Cal traffic with a toddler in the back seat. Although it took a few extra hours going by rail, it was a great way to travel with a little one and a wonderful way to meet new people. The freedom to move about the train and explore made the travel time pass quickly. Eating in the dinning car while taking in some breathtaking California coastal scenery is a special treat. The food was much better than airline fare and the view far surpassed any that we have experienced in a stationary ocean view restaurant at any price.
Peace, Love, and Light through Jesus the Christ!
