A Day in the Magic Kingdom

Last Monday, we went to Disneyland. Mr. H grew up in California, so this was not his first trip. I don't think he remembers much about those early trips, except that the Matterhorn was HUGE. Comparing it to newer roller coasters, times have certainly changed our expectations. This picture is us girls on Thunder Mountain. (click on it to see it larger) L and I are in the back of the first car and M and the eldest are in the front of the 2nd car. Mr. H decided not to risk his lunch. He played photographer instead.

The decorations outside the Haunted Mansion were... interesting.

I got this small picture from the eldest's facebook album. That's her and M wearing the 3-D glasses for "Honey, I Shrunk the Audience." The big picture following it is me and Mr. H in 3-D attire.

Mr. H did not buy this hat! He looks like the offspring of Captain Jack Sparrow and Minnie Pearl.
Sleeping Beauty's castle was decorated for the holidays. They called it Twinkling Joy. It was gorgeous.
This picture also came from the eldest's facebook. We are on the tram headed back to the parking garage: Goofy level 4, by post 7D.

I know that people all over the world come to Disney theme parks every day. (We saw most of them the day we were there). I must have turned into a small town girl when we moved to George County. Yes, I enjoyed taking the girls there, but if I never get to go to Disneyland again or if I never make it to Disney World, I don't think it will bother me. All those people so close together makes it hard for me to breathe. And I was constantly counting heads fearing if I lost sight of one of the girls, they'd be lost forever in Neverland. My favorite ride was the tram back to the car!


  1. My kids were at Disneyland over winter break and had a blast! Hey there, you Superior Scribbler, you! Melissa B., The Scholastic Scribe, here, checking in with fellow Scribblers!
