The "Land" May Never Be The Same - AKA "We're Going To Disneyland!" NEW 8/8
Hello all you wonderful Disers!
Guess what, guess what, guess what!!!!
We're going to Disneyland!!!!!!!
But I bet you probably guessed that by my not so clever thread title which is a total knock off of my uncompleted Disneyworld trip report from a few years ago. Hanging my head in shame. If you want to read it, link is in my siggie. How's that for pimping out a dead thread? lol!
Anywho.....back to matters at hand....
The trip. Ah yes, the trip. The trip to the beautiful Land that Walt built just for me.
Not just for me?
Hmmmm.....not sure I believe you but judging by the lineups for the new Star Tours other people seem to think that I have to share.
Well okay, I'll share. I'm nice that way.
Where shall we start here?
How about the cast of characters? Seems to be as good a place to start as any! So here we go!
Me: I'm Sarah. I'm not going to post my age. Lets just say that its a higher number then I care to admit and I'm happily living in denial-land (which is slightly different then Disneyland but equally as fun) where I am forever 29. Ah yes, its good in that world. I'm a single mom to my 2 princesses who you'll meet in a moment. I spend my time volunteering at my local hospital in the ER and at the Health Unit playing with babies. I just finished having to go back to high school which was an experience in itself. Its fun sitting in a class and looking around and realizing no one else in the room was even alive last time I was in high school. Yikes! Talk about a reality check! Anyways, my reason for doing that was I want to go back to school to go into medical radiography and they require that your last courses be within the last 5 years so I could either go back to high school or I could retake some of my university courses. I took the easy way out! lol! I'm a bit of an amateur photographer, sometimes a "real" one too and a wanna be runner. Used to be a real runner but 3 car accidents in the last 2 years have sidelined me once again. Enough blabbing about me - you'll learn more about me as we go and you'll find out quickly that I talk alot! lol! Here I am.
Belle: She is daughter number 1 and she's 14 years old and quite happy to be taller then me. How did that happen? Can someone please tell her to stop growing up? Please and thank you. She is in a lot of ways a typical teenager - you know, hates school, sometimes hates her mom, usually hates her sister and likes to sleep a lot. But she's also the sweetest girl with the most sensitive heart of any teenager I know. She is kind and generous and thoughtful and kind and smart and funny and more kinds of wonderful then I know how to tell you. Yes, I love her that much - even when she's being her grumpy teenaged self. She dances ballet, jazz and lyrical but not nearly as much as she used to - finding other passions in life which is what I want for her. She's written a novel and is trying to get it published and wants to be a writer when she grows up. At least today that she wants to be. Tomorrow it may be something different and thats ok - its what growing up is all about. Heck, I wanted to be a butterfly when I grew up when I was a little kid. Yes, I was that clueless. Thankfully my girlies are much smarter then I was! She is a Harry Potter nut, a Dr Who fan and always has her nose in a book. Here is my beautiful and newly red-headed Belle.
Tink: My second beautiful daughter who is 11 years old and lives up to her nickname in more ways then I care to admit. She is my monkey - always up to something. Her mind and her body are never still. She is super-duper smart and wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Not a doubt in my mind she will be either. For Christmas last year she wanted a lab coat, a stethoscope and an anatomy book from the medical school by us. Santa obliged and she has been reading it constantly. She is also a dancer but more a tapper to her sister's ballerina but she also does ballet and jazz. She is always making us laugh and is the daredevil in our family. She also plays the guitar but not just any guitar - it had to be a pink one! Yes, she's that girly! She's very artistic and has wallpapered her room in her art. With tape. On the walls. Scotch tape. On my walls. Tried to get some of it off and it started peeling the drywall. Help me! Typical Tink move though. Like I said, she's a total monkey. I know one day she'll put her independence and spunk to good use! I should also mention she's obsessed with hippos....more on that momentarily. Here's Tink!
Hippo: Well she kind of speaks for herself. She is grey about 4 years old and spends most of her time with Tink. She has never spent a night away from Tink actually. She really is a member of the family at this point - we all love her. She knows that when she leaves the house she has to wear her collar with her name and phone number on it so that if she ever gets lost she can get a human to call us and help her find her way home. Here she is in her hippo footie-pajamas....
Oh she's being shy - lets try this again.....
Okay....that's it for tonight. I'm watching the Tony's as I'm writing this and being distracted by the wonder that is Neil Patrick Harris.
Oh ya, I'd have his babies if he didn't just have 2 with his partner. Doh! Wrong team. But still....I would. I think. Okay, ya I would! Call me Neil!
Just for fun I will leave you for now with the world's worst paid for Photopass pic from a trip of long ago. Feel free to laugh at my kids' expense. I certainly do every time I look at this photo!
Good night my fair Diser's!
