Today I want to share our trip with you. We had such an amazing time and got to share it with an awesome family! We got in our car and made our annual trip to Disneyland and the beach. This was my 19th visit to “the happiest place on earth” and it was a magical time. Yet what made it even better was the family we got to share it with.
Last year, Nan (blogger at Moms the Word) and I met at DL (Disneyland) for the first time. We’ve been friends in the blogsphere for a few years now and God opened the door for us to meet face to face. It was a real treat for me. And this year, we actually were able to share time at DL together with our families.
Nan is one of the sweetest lady I know. What you read on her blog is genuine. We had precious conversations while waiting for our loved ones to ride the rides we didn’t. Her husband and son were delightful and fun to be around. We laughed together, rode Winnie the Pooh four times, had favorite ice cream treats, avoided long lines when we could, enjoyed meals together, got soak and wet from the water rides together and I hope we can do it again next year. It was truly a blessed time for my family to spend that time with Nan and her family. I’m so thankful God worked it out so we could.
Now here are some photos from our trip. If you read last week’s post on Monday, you know I had no camera to take photos so some of these photos are from my phone (thank you, Lord, for that technology!). In addition, Nan and her husband blessed us with photos taken and placed on their photo pass. We got some great memories in photos because of that. The photographer (and mom) in me was ever so gratefulness for their generous gift to our family. To have my camera taken was hard but the Lord still provided through our friends. Thank you Nan & hubby!
From left to right, top to bottom: We were there to celebrate Mickey’s 88th birthday. They handed out buttons at the gate and you could take photos with the big button, which we did. Photo #2 is my family and I riding Radiator Springs Racers in California Adventure. Takes a little coaxing to get me on this ride but I always enjoy riding once I’m strapped in. Photo #3 is us in front of Tower of Terror, which is in its last season of running. Next year it will be Guardians of the Galaxy. And photo #4 is me standing in front of the Hyperion theater getting ready to watch the stage production of “Frozen.” For years, it was “Aladdin,” our most favorite.
Left to right, top to bottom: Photo #1 is both of our families in front of the castle. Photo #2 is me and Nan. Photo #3 is the castle at night and its so beautiful. Photo #4 is my family wearing the shirts we made. Photo #5 is my love and I at the beach. Lastly, photo #6 is the really, really tall Christmas tree at the beginning of Main Street.
Well, that’s a recap of our trip. It’s now time to get to linking up and encouraging one another. I am so glad you are here.
