Vacation Thoughts

I couldn't post yesterday. I tried, but I couldn't connect to the internet and Calvin was too asleep to help me. Oh well. This is what I was going to say:

"Pioneer children sang as they walked and walked and walked and walked."

You remember that Primary song, don't you?

I thought of that all day as we walked miles through California Adventure and Disneyland.

I'm pretty sure if I was a pioneer, they would have shot me and left me on the prairie.

Bloody stumps and all.


(That's all I'm saying about that.)


We're having a blast. It's hot and I mean HOT!! The weather guy said it was one degree short of the record high. It was 97 degrees yesterday. We came here in October for two reasons: the weather would be cooler and smaller crowds. Both reasons have been shot to heck. The heat has been horrendous!! Thank heavens for backpacks and water bottles so we could stay hydrated.
And.... the crowds have been huge as well. We're not the only school district that is having a vacation. The Arizona schools are on break right now and the crowds are summer-like. We could have come in July and had the same experience. Oh well. Thank heavens for RideMax and FastPass. The only lines we've had to wait a long time in were the rides that didn't have FastPass (and when we ditched our RideMax schedule.)

The kids are having fun anyway and haven't complained at all. The miles we've walked has to be astounding and they keep going and going. Energizer Bunny going. I'm proud of them.


I just checked and we'll be going home to 39 degree weather with a chance of snow. There may be a slight chance we won't be going home.
