Disneyland fun..past & present
We had a great time a Disneyland this past week with Craig and Nicole, Kent, Stephanie, Taylor and Erik. Having grown up in So. Cal., I have always loved Disneyland. I remember when each ride had a different ticket value and it was hard sometimes to decide which ride to go on. Thank goodness that changed, I think we went on Buzz Lightyear 8 times. That was Taylor's favorite ride. We were there three days, but never seemed to make it over to Tom Sawyers Island, (aka Pirates Liar). Things seemed to be a little more commercialized but it was still a happy place to be with kids and now grand kids. I'm a good grandma to take, I don't like many of the rides so I can babysit! It is sometimes more fun to just people watch anyway.

This is 1965, I'm the one with the camera, the others are my brother and counsins


This is in 1984, before Scott was born, I know we took him to Disneyland, but can't find the pictures, isn't that how it is with the last child?


Here we are on at the Captian Eo show, Jack is sitting between Steve & I, that used to be one of my favorites, but Michael Jackson has fallen far and that 3-D show is now "Honey I shrunk the kids". It's 1985, Scott has been born but we left him with my mom.

Being one of the youngest in my family, my mom claimed she took me places but never had the pictures to prove it either! Love the old photos, what a cute mom you are!!

How come you never age? I don't think it's fair that I have to look in the mirror everyday and be scared by the old woman looking back at me, and you don't !! It's just not fair... :( LOL

So are you ready to go again next year? Everyone else seems Disneyland-ed out. So I'll go with you guys, and you can take the kids on the small rides while Steve and I go on Tower of Terror 10 times. Sound good?

Scott...she's lying...they never took you. And my parents never took me anywhere either. We youngest kids have got to stick together.
