I haven't written the Disney update.
WE had a great time. Going on a plane, staying in a hotel. French fries twice a day. All that without Disneyland!
Disneyland was fabulous. I love it. Kids loved it. They still adore the characters-hugs all around. And they liked the parades, shows and pretty much all the rides we went on. We did not do the huge roller coaster at Disneyland Adventure.
Pops' Dad behaved well and didn't indulge in the need to parent our kids. Gramps can launch into sessions of bitching about life's details-I would just tune him out and roll him over to Pops. Gramps did generously foot the bill for the entire trip.
I look forward to going back. And is goes without saying that the kids do.
