The Weekend1:27 PM
We do not have the normal weekend of Saturday and Sunday. Our weekends vary, but are usually Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Sometimes we have a Wednesday as well. Such was the case this past "weekend." We left for Orange County, CA and Disneyland on Wednesday morning. We decided while were at Disney Sea in Tokyo that we should go to Disneyland for Corrine's third birthday. Kids under three are free. And given that our admission to Disney and California Adventure was $137.00 each it was a good thing she was free!
It was a great trip, albeit, a fast one. We will go again when she is a bit older and will be able to go on some of the bigger rides. Plus I think she will be able to appreciate a bit more. I was shocked (although I shouldn't have been) at the overall mass consumerism of crap at the Disney store. We didn't go crazy buying stuff, but we did purchase a couple of souvenirs. We bought the birthday girl a Minnie Mouse suitcase that she will use for years (or until it falls apart) that she put all of her stuff in a wheeled it through the airport.
On Saturday we had just a few people over for pizza, cake and ice cream. On Sunday morning we met Papa at the National Western Stock Show. Papa, who is mainly retired, works at the NWSS during the month of January as the beef superintendent and a catch-a-calf supervisor. We got a behind the scenes tour. Her favorite part? Either the pony ride or the petting zoo!
It's been quite some time, but I'm joining Amanda. Have a great week!
