I'm Back!!

WOW!!! What a trip. Lots of things to do in a very short time, but we got it all in. Even got in a place we hadn't planned. As soon as I arrived everyone was hungry so we went to Seaport Village. Neat little place to wander. The little girls even got to ride the carousel. Gracie rode a horse and Lib rode the elephant. Gracie had to try out the elephant and a camel when we stopped. While eating a big bird came right on our table and stole Gracie's hamburger. It was really quick, but it got quite a scolding from G. The trucks drove all around the railing and didn't fall off into the ocean.

Sat. we went to San Juan Capistrano and wandered there for 2 hours. Lots to see and the little girls loved it. Gracie got to play hoops on the grass and even got to dance with the people from Lincoln's era. However, when she found out there were instructions and rules she decided she didn't want to dance. Got back home in time to get ready for the other party in San Diego. The was just M & Me. We had a fabulous dinner and even did some dancing.

Sunday we stayed home and celebrated with the Birthday Girl.

Monday we went to Disneyland all day. Got there about 11:00a.m. and left at 9:30p.m. The little girls had a great time. The big people did too. Gracie got to see her princesses. That was an hour and a half wait, but well worth it to see her with them. Even Libby got to sit with them. We rode the paddle wheel, cars, Buzz Lightyear, It's a Small World, went through the Tiki Hut, and did a lot of walking. I'm getting in practice for Ireland, and I really need to do more walking. We were all absolutely exhausted when we got home. It was such fun.

Then Tuesday it was time for me to fly home. My seat mates were chatters and I loved that part. Made the trip go so fast. The weather was good the whole time.

Now its time to figure out the next trip.


  1. Glad that you had a great and busy time, can't wait to see your photos. That will be the next trip.

  2. Sounds like you had a blast! Sea Port Village is cute. I'm hoping to visit San Juan Capistrano my next trip to California as it looks so pretty and interesting in the photos.

    Glad you had good company on the ride home, that always does make for a quick flight.
