Then I had kids and the magic came back because I got to see the wonder of it through their eyes. To watch them gleam at the sight of every little thing is worth the MONSTROUS amount of money it costs for a ticket.
Then I had in-laws and cousins and aunts from Brasil. And the magic came back again. I kind of had forgotten the fact that Disneyland is pretty ridiculous and miraculous. And being that there is nothing like it anywhere in Brasil these folks were astounded. And it was more entertaining to me to watch their reactions on the Pirate ride then to pay attention to it.
Disneyland is magic. No questions asked.
Brace yourself for some ridiculous picture overload. Zoie LOOOOOOVED all the characters. Riley, however, is still in the silly age where it is absolute torture to get her picture taken, so any chance i had to get one was a rare and precious moment.. oh, ya, one more thing to point out...Check out our ghetto fabulous lunch. We were too cheap to eat lunch in the park (and by cheap I mean we don't have $600 a person for a hot dog) so we set up a swwweeeeeet picnic in the parking garage. You can steal our idea. Don't worry....I won't mind.
Trying to sqeeze Disneyland and California Adventure is exhausting..yes, that's Zoie in Bia's car seat...I don't know where Bia is....
