The Happiest Place on Earth


I sure hope so!

For those of you who don't know already, Nik and I are headed out to Disneyland (or Dizzleyland as Annie would call it) on the 17th. I am so exited to go! I went to D-Land for the first time (with my family) the summer before I got married, and we had so much fun! It was great cause we were all grown up, well, Jeff was like 11, but he was grown up enough. Nik has not gone since he was a small child and we have obviously never been together. It will be fun to go with him because he is a die-hard Disney fan and I know we will both act like little kids when we get there.

I am really looking forward to this trip with Nik. It is the first trip we have taken just us. You know, not with friends or family, or meeting friends or family. We are free to do whatever we want, just the two of us. Don't get me wrong, this would have been a cool trip with company, but since that did not work out, I am glad we could still go.

We have been saving for this trip for about 7 months or more and because of recent circumstances we debated actually going, or using that money for other things. But after much deliberation, we decided it would be good for our mental health to take the vacation and we would make it work later, if we needed too.

I am a little nervous to fly, but it is a short, non-stop light each way, so hopefully I will not completely freak myself out again. And I am not talking the Dramamine this time, I think it made the rest of the day worse last time. We will have a rental car waiting when we get there so we can see other parts of California, including the San Diego Zoo! I think Nik might be more excited for this part than for Disneyland. Truthfully, I kind of am too. I hear it is so cool, and so big. If anyone who has been there can offer any advice about getting through it in one day, I would appreciate it.



Yay for vacations!

Just don't worry about seeing the whole zoo in one day. Take the tram tour around and you will see almost everything anyway (at least that's the way it was last time I was there - 25 years ago).
Have fun in Disneyland. I love it there.
