The Happiest Place On Earth

I love Disneyland. We just got back from a trip with JUST our little family and it was such a good time. When your kids are small, everything is the greatest thing they've ever seen. I remember feeling that same way when I went there as a kid. My husband can do without the Peter Pan and Dumbo rides, but I wouldn't pass them up for anything. Sure the rides are not that much fun and the technology is dated, but that's not what these rides are about. It's the pure joy a child sees when his stories come to life. It reminds us how "bigger" isn't necessarily better.

We make the kids save their money so they can go. It teaches them responsibility and helps with the ever growing cost of the Magic Kingdom. I really needed this trip. I mean REALLY needed a little time away. I've been getting spanked at work and this trip gave me a chance to recharge with my kids and remember what pure joy looks like. Here's to saving up for another trip there!
